What House Are You?

Okay, let's talk houses at Hogwarts. We all know what they are, right? And you know that you have mentally sorted yourself and placed yourself in a house. 

Gryffindor values courage, bravery, loyalty, nerve, and chivalry.

Ravenclaw values intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit.

Hufflepuff values hard work, tolerance, loyalty, and fair play. 

Slytherin values ambition, cunning, leadership, and resourcefulness. 

Well, when I put the sorting hat on my head, this is what happens...

One of my former students drew this for me on my white board. I love it. 

Yeah, I've always considered myself a Ravenclaw.

In some groups I find that I am the smartest, wittiest, most creative person in the room. But those groups are usually made up of people who are playing beer pong and telling fart jokes. In company like the students of Hogwarts, I often wonder if my intelligence, wit, and creativity would stand up, and I sometimes think that I might actually get sorted into Hufflepuff if it really came down to it. But I'm counting on the fact that I value those things to be enough to get me in. (Although my riddle solving skills are horrible, so I would probably spend a lot of nights sleeping in the hall outside of the common room until someone came by to let me in.)

And Hufflepuff would be pretty cool too, I guess. 

I'd just be happy to be at Hogwarts, honestly. 

So, where do you think you would end up? 


  1. I straddle the line between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw as well. My love and loyalty to all things Cedric Diggory and you know in general make me believe I'm a Hufflepuff, but "Wit Beyond Measure" combined with awesome house colors make me feel like a Ravenclaw.

  2. Probably Ravenclaw. I think I could rise to the Gryffindor occasion if I were piqued enough, but I'm not much of a leader. Although I'm not really a follower. I'm kind of a do-it-yourself sort of gal (which is inherently why writing is so wonderful to me).

  3. Girl... Being a hufflepuff comes with taking a LOT of crap...

    I'd love to say I'm smart enough to be a Ravenclaw...

    I'd love to say I'm brave enough to be a Gryffindor...

    I'd love to say I'm sassy enough to be a Slytherin...

    But the truth is, I'm squishy, and loyal... Empathetic and overly sentimental... I work hard for the things that are important to me, and want the world to be full of kindness, love and peace...

    I'm totally a puff. :D

  4. Every time I'm "sorted" I get put in Slytherin. I was in denial about it for a long time, but I've come to terms with it. I'm a Slytherin through and through.

  5. I've gotten Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. I'd pick Ravenclaw.

    I might be seeing Deathly Hallows in theaters after all! My roommate wants to go see it. :) I thought I'd have to wait for the dvd, so I'm pretty excited.

  6. I think I'd end up in Hufflepuff. While I was reading I convinced myself I'd be in Gryffindor, but when it comes down to it, I think my hard work and loyalty would win out. Oh well. I guess I'll have to get to Ron some other way. :-)

  7. I'd like to say Gryffindor, but I think if I was sorted it would probably be Ravenclaw.
