    If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, then chances are you’ve spent perhaps a little too much time thinking about what house you’d be in. Personally, I was never that interested in the main plot of the books or films, however, I was intrigued by some of the concepts of such a World. I preferred to spend more time thinking about different Hogwarts’ houses, how magic works in this fictional universe, and magical creatures.

    So, if I were a student at Hogwarts, then I’d probably spend a good portion of my spare time researching telekinesis and reading up on magical creatures. That’s why I relate more to Newt Scamander than I did to Harry Potter. I know that it’s a controversial opinion, but I actually found Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them more enjoyable than the main Harry Potter series.

    I can almost hear the booing now. Yes, I know. How could I? Some might say that I’m not a true fan because of this. Implying that there’s some sort of requirement list you need to meet in order to truly enjoy such things.

    But there are a lot of elements that fascinate me. Especially Patronuses, the bespoke nature of wands, and the social implications of the different houses. For instance, in Slytherin, you have a lot of witches and wizards who value leadership. I would imagine that quite a few arguments ensue over who gets to take the lead in the group. Perhaps being in Slytherin helps teach students a lesson in when it is necessary to let others take the lead, and when they should step in to help.

    Although I’m probably overthinking it. I like how each house corresponds to an element. Ravenclaw is air, Slytherin is water, Gryffindor is fire and Hufflepuff is earth. Their common rooms also match their house animal and their house animal somewhat matches their element...I just…*fangirls*

    Sorry about that. :oops:

    I just think that it’s really neat. So, for a while, I’ve been stuck between two houses. Slytherin and Ravenclaw. After much thought, I have come to the conclusion that I’d probably be in Ravenclaw house. I’ve taken the quiz on Pottermore more times than I’d care to admit. Also, I even have a sheet keeping count of how many times I’ve gotten each result. I told someone I knew about this, and she replied: “Yeah, you’re definitely a Ravenclaw”.

    However, each house has a downside. I’ve gotten into each house on Pottermore before, and I’ve read all of the acceptance/introductory letters. Based on the information that I’ve gathered, it seems as though there happen to be quite a few Ravenclaw students who would double cross you to get a good grade. Or have so much pride in their house, that they are willing to lie and say that certain individuals were in Ravenclaw when actually they weren’t. However, not all Ravenclaws are like that. Take Luna Lovegood for example.

    I think that if I were in Ravenclaw, I’d probably get annoyed with the statue that guards the common room rather quickly.

    “Ugh, shut up about philosophy and away with your open-ended questions, I just want my books, please!”

    When you think about it, Ravenclaw students are the ones who have to travel around Hogwarts the most. Their common room is at the very top of a tower, forget about making it to potions class on time.

    However, I think that I would probably fit in there. I mean, Ravenclaw is the house of creative eccentrics. They value wit, wisdom, learning, and are known for thinking outside the box. So by that description alone, I’d say that they sound like my kind of people. I’d love to hear the kind of witty jokes that must go on in the Ravenclaw common room or to take a sneak peek at someone’s research project. Perhaps even make my own.

    Although, I’d prefer to control water over air. Having control over the wind would be fairly cool, but water powers...hmm…

    Despite relating to Newt, I don’t think that I’d be put in Hufflepuff. I think that I probably don’t have the patience or the work ethic to be in that house. Also, I can be a bit mean sometimes. Usually whenever I’m speaking without thinking. Whilst it’s not always my intention, I can be careless with my words. Besides, their common room sounds a bit too snug for my liking. I might get claustrophobic in there. Also, the idea of getting sprayed with vinegar if I mess up the password is definitely offputting.

    As for Gryffindor, whilst it is true that I have a brave side to me, I don’t think that I would fit in. Gryffindors seem...intense. I might hang out with them now and then, but I don’t think living with them would go well. However, I do like their animal. So I’ll give Gryffindor points for that.

    Slytherin is cool. Aside from their unpleasant past. I like their ambition, and sometimes I do well being the leader of a group. There are times where I am overly-ambitious, only to later regret attempting so much. Slytherins are also loyal to their own kind, and self-preserving. I can respect that realist outlook. Their common room seems nice as well, I prefer it over the Gryffindor common room anyway. I can imagine myself relaxing in there quite easily. Besides, Scorpius Malfoy is awesome. In my opinion, anyway. Not exactly a solid argument, but still. :D

    TL;DR: In conclusion, I’d like to be a Ravenclaw. There’s a lot of overlap between the houses, and most people are a combination of all of them to a degree. I thought for a while that I was a Slytherin, and whilst I do have Slytherin traits...I think I’d be happier as a Ravenclaw.


    How about you, and why?

    Edit: I meant to write Squib in the poll, but I wrote Squip because I was thinking of Be More Chill. Two very different things, yet very similar spellings. :oops: Whoops.

    I'm definitely Ravenclaw to the core. First of all, Pottermore says so. So there's that. lol. But whether its my being intellectual or creative or logical; or my affinity for birds of prey for that matter... its definitely my primary house. If I had a secondary, it'd be Gryffindor. I don't tend to take no for an answer and in my younger years was a bit on the righteous and rebellious side (but not so much anymore).

    Frankly, I could probably "work" in any of the houses, but I'd find most Slytherins selfish and Hufflepuff's people pleasing.

    What Is Your Hogwarts House Percentage?

    "...you're 27% Ravenclaw, 25% Slytherin, 24% Hufflepuff, and 24% Gryffindor! You seem to be an almost perfect combination of all four houses, which is incredibly rare – you’re equal in your intelligence, bravery, loyalty, and ambition."

    The results went on to say that the Hat would take into account which ever
    house I indicated was my preference.

    Does liking/admiring Snape count?

    I've tested on, agreed with, and been told I'm the one with the odd, nice people, but I can never remember if that's Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff, because from what I remember, the stories primarily involve Gryfindoor and Slytherin so I only consistently remember those and know those aren't them.

    I also can never, no matter how hard I try, remember my Meyer Briggs, so there's something about personality-related things that can't stay in my brain.

    Sorta like that other thing I recently said I always forget.

    Edit: I thought one of the houses was Hogwarts and have realized from other posts that that is not the case LOL it's fixed now.

    I did one of those quizzes a couple years ago. Apparently I'm Ravenclaw material.

    I agree,while I do like the Harry Potter series I like the Fantastic Beasts series a bit more,Newt Scamander is my favourite character and he is from the house I was sorted into which is Hufflepuff.

    I've done the Pottermore quiz about eight times (long story there), and every single time it's put me into Slytherin. I guess there's no escaping fate.

    I did the percentage test and I got 42% Ravenclaw, 27% Hufflepuff, 21% Gryffindor, and 10% Slytherin.
    My youngest son has said on numerable occasions that l'm either in Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff. So, it seems, the test kind of backs that up.

    I would prefer Ravenclaw, but Slytherin is propably also an option, despite me disagreeing with their more known members.

    Personally I somewhat disagree, but it was an interesting enough quiz. It's strange that it gave more detail on my Slytherin traits, yet gave me a lower score on that house. However, I got a higher one on Hufflepuff and less of a description. o_O

    Surely it'd make more sense to have the last sentence be about my slight compatibility with Slytherin, considering the fact that I scored the lowest on that house.

    Not a Harry Potter fan in general, though I've read all the books... Did the quiz above and I wanted to be Ravenclaw (or considered myself that more?) but got:

    You Are 32% Gryffindor, 29% Ravenclaw, 25% Slytherin, and 14% Hufflepuff!

    Meh. Choosing Ravenclaw anyway, they value two things I love - creativity and learning.

    I was Hufflepuff on the Pottermore sorting, and Ravenclaw but unusually kind on the percentage test. With an underlying love of travel and adventure.

    Any test that sorts into 4 categories is going to be broad-brush. However it was fun.

    On Myers Briggs I am INTP. There are 16 categories.

    Well, I can appreciate the honesty lol. :D

    Fun fact, a squib is a term used to describe someone in the Harry Potter universe who, despite having magical parents, cannot perform magic. Unlike muggles, they can see Hogwarts and the wizarding World in general, but can't truly participate in it.

    Muggles (non-magic folk, with non-magic parents, living normal lives) are usually unaware of the existence of the wizarding World, unless of course they are related to a witch or wizard, then chances are they'd know. ;)

    Children born to muggles are typically referred to as, you guessed it, muggle-born. :p A squib probably married into such a family somewhere down the line, the hosted genes skipped a few generations, and boom, surprise magical child.

    A squip however, is the name of a super computer/ piece of artificial intelligence in a science fiction musical named Be More Chill. It is not something that exists in Harry Potter. It stands for a Super Quantum Unit Intel Processor, not to be confused with a squib, which is a non-magical person with magic parents. :p That reason alone is why I found my typo in the poll to be more amusing than it should have been. A word of warning though, Be More Chill isn't a family friendly musical and is mainly aimed at teens to young adults and onwards.

    Harry Potter is my main special interest. It is a series that has helped me through some pretty hard times in life, and I reread the series at least once a year. That being said, I am a very proud Hufflepuff. I am kind, loyal, and honest. I work hard for what I want, and stand up for what's right. I do not judge others. I love nature and animals. And food haha.

    The first time I took the Pottermore quiz is when it came out and I got Slytherin, which I thought was really interesting.

    Some time passed... and ever since then ,each time I take it I always get Ravenclaw and I'm a little disappointed.

    I mean, Ravenclaw is perfectly fine. Growing up, school was always very uninteresting to me. Progressively so; with each year I performed worse as my apathy grew. But if I was in a school where the content of the classes gave me power over the world around me, I'd wager that I would be much more interested in learning.

    Since I never really had a social life, that would mean all of my time would probably go towards mastering magic in some fashion, and therefore Ravenclaw, if I'm right, would fit well enough.

    But that really betrays the feeling of apathy I had in normal academia--scores and class rooms... in my soul I'd probably always never really love or respect any of it, and if I were to truly plunge into studying, it would be to acquire great magical capabilities and for nothing else.

    That amoral (and often in the books/movies, immoral) aim for power really sounds a whole lot more like Slytherin than Ravenclaw to me.

    Not to mention, after seeing the ending of The Fantastic Beasts, setting aside the fact that Grindelwald is a meanie head, his entire idea of wizards and witches ruling the world and no longer hiding seems completely logical and ultimately unavoidable. And while I wouldn't be against magical folk and muggles mixing (it's no one's business really and any attempt to outlaw it would backfire), the fact of the matter is indeed that one is 100% better than the other--who wants to be a muggle? It isn't like people with different skin colors. The defining difference between the two is that one can do MAGIC and the other is out of luck.

    The mere idea of wizard superiority seems completely aligned with the House of Slytherin to my understanding (honestly haven't read the books, but I have seen the original movies a hundred times). So Pottermore might say on the whole I'm Ravenclaw, and I'll accept that, but in my heart I would always feel like a Slytherin.
