Avatar Imagefanofjo says: I would sort myself into Ravenclaw. I've always thought that from the beginning, and it hasn't changed through the books. It would be an honor to be in Gryffindor, but I don't think that's where I belong.Avatar Imageginny_weasley1998 says: I think many would almost immediately sort themselves in gryffindor because that's where Harry or Ron or hermione are sorted to.those people include me!:)) I guess you want to be brave and courageous if you really are not! I would say I am in gryffindor because that's where the heros come from , but as I think about it my true spot is gryffindor for my heart and intelligence and I am not just saying that because gryffindor is where every one (almost) wants to be sorted.Avatar Imagesumm3rjammx3 says: At first, I always felt like a Gryffindor. I felt like Hermione and idolized her every move. But then I doubted myself and felt like a Ravenclaw. I thought it was because I was "smart" and dedicated to school. This identity crisis ended when I realized I was only dedicated to school so that it would be worth it in the end. I was determined to finish high school and move on to college. But these were not the qualities of Ravenclaws; they would love school and not want it to end which was the opposite of what I wanted. So I decided I was still a Gryffindor at heart. I was never a Hufflepuff- I lose my patience quickly and only work hard for the classes I am interested in. I work hard in all my classes, but there's a difference in working hard because you have to, and working hard because you love the subject. I also was never a Slytherin- I believe Slytherins are just "bad" Gryffindors. We both are determined, brave and reckless, but Slytherins do it selfishly and Gryffindors do it chivalrously. So, in the end, I AM a Gryffindor. I proved why I would not be in the other houses.Avatar Imagesumm3rjammx3 says: At first, I always felt like a Gryffindor.

So, in the end, I AM a Gryffindor. I proved why I would not be in the other houses.Avatar Imagesumm3rjammx3 says: SORRY IT POSTED TWICEAvatar Image2tal says: Walking in on rubbery legs I sat on the stool and the hat was put on my head. Hmmm it said in my ear, loyal and kind, hardworking, a bit of bravery there, I think you'd better be in Hufflepuff! It was always here that I felt at home and still is. A place that welcomes everyone and supports their effort to improve themselves. While we hear amost only about Gryffindor and a bit about Slytherin in the early books it is in OotP when we begin to learn more about the other houses and meet folks from them. I do want to know about the heros and their home but, when I get sorted, it will be a squishy arm chair in the Hufflepuff common room where I'll do my studies with a butterbeer at hand.Avatar ImageMetalcutter says: I would sort myself into Huffelpuff because there are things that have to be accomplished to keep our world on an even keel whether they are heroic or mundane and since there are plenty of folks ready to be heroic, I'll do the mundane. Avatar ImageAndrea.akafred says: i have always felt like i am a ravenclaw :) i've always been the nerdy book worm who actually enjoyed learning new things...and i was raised in a house where my mom always had on the history channel, so learning wasnt that hard to do. even at my small school, people who knew me even a little would think that i was a ravenclaw...and my senior year, i was voted "buried in books" which was our version of "most studious" :)Avatar ImageHPandtheDA007 says: First reading the series, I probably felt more like a Gryffindor and that was solely based on the fact that I wanted to be just like Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Presently, I see myself as a Hufflepuff. I am a loyal friend, hardworking in all I do, and I am honest not only to others but to myself. But I think people can possess the qualities of other houses as well. I could also be a Ravenclaw passed on my love of books and knowledge but also a Slytherin due to my ambitious state of mind. But I probably am most likely a Hufflepuff. Plus their dorm is right by the kitchens!!!Avatar Imageimnymphadora says: I will sort myself to Gryffindor. The house I always see myself into. I have always sorted myself to Gryffindor since I was young. It's not because the three main characters are in Gryffindor. I also love characters from the other houses. But in opinion, my personalities belong to that house. Avatar Imagedanahuff says: I think I fit fairly solidly into Ravenclaw. I am a student—always have been—and grew up to be a teacher. I don't think I fit in Gryffindor because I don't feel I'm all that brave. I'm also not one of those roll-up-your-sleeves-and-work-hard types like Hufflepuffs. I am just not a Slytherin. Avatar ImageGinnnygal says: Being a young reader, I always followed the crowd; I thought myself to be a great Gryffindor, but as I grew older, I knew there was something more to me than being a Gryffindor. Hermione was in a way, my rolemodel, I wanted to be just like her. But then I realized that I didn't have to be in Gryffindor to be like her. I then realized that The House of Ravenclaw would best suit my qualities. All those years, I aspired to be a true Gryffindor when I was a Ravenclaw at heart, "Where those of wit and learning will always find their kind!" And ever since then, I have been showing great pride in my house. Avatar Imagegot2lovme says: I have always considered myself a Gryffindor. Maybe cause of Harrt. Never really thought about it. But I know i def dont belong in the other house. Gryffindor has always called me. Its the house i feel like i fit perfectly.Avatar ImageMisty says: Gryffindor is the only house I think I would really feel at home in. I could be friends with people from any house, but I have always felt that I personally would never fit anywhere but Gryffindor. . Avatar Imagequinnringo says: I think we all fall a bit into each of the four houses. I always wanted desperately to be a Slytherin... I loved the colors and of course my favorite character, Professor Snape was a Slytherin as well. I also felt like I had the brains sometimes as a Ravenclaw and the work ethic of a Huffelpuff. But I have accepted that I'm a Gryffindor through an through. It's my chivilrousness and determination to help others that places me there. Avatar Imageallprostar31 says: I used to think I should be in Ravenclaw, but then I realised I'm not very smart. It must be Hufflepuff.Avatar ImageBradyboy says: I don't think that anything has changed - I was sort myself into Hufflepuff because I view myself as a kind and honest person. I'm not smart, so I wouldn't in Ravenclaw. I'm not brave so I wouldn't be in Gryfindor. That leaves Slytherin and Hufflepuff, and between those two I would be and would choose Slythern. Avatar ImageBradyboy says: I don't think that anything has changed - I was sort myself into Hufflepuff because I view myself as a kind and honest person. I'm not smart, so I wouldn't in Ravenclaw. I'm not brave so I wouldn't be in Gryfindor. That leaves Slytherin and Hufflepuff, and between those two I would be and would choose Slythern. Avatar Imagevicki23 says: Gryffindor is where you think you want to be when you first start reading the books. Or at least that's the way I felt. But then I realized it didn't quite fit. So when the sorting app came out on FB I got sorted and it turns out I am a Ravenclaw! Which is awesome cause I <3 Luna and her kindness! Go Ravenclaw!Avatar ImageFinite says: When I started reading the series, I felt just like Neville. I always admired the Gryffindors in the books - particularly Harry - to whom being brave and heroic seemed to come naturally. But I never felt brave. I had a feeling if I was sorted, I'd end up in Hufflepuff, just as Neville thought at first. Over the years, I've found that you never really know who you are as a person until you stop wondering and find out by accident. Like many people, I experienced plenty of hard and scary things in the span of 10 years, and realized that having your worst fears realized teaches you about yourself better than any psychology class. For me, it taught me that I AM brave. So at age 11, I'd have shuffled off to Hufflepuff. As a 21 year old, I feel like a Gryffindor :)Avatar ImageLunaCrissy says: I'm accepted into Gryffindor but i think i have all of the houses in me. Hufflepuff because i'm loyal to my friends and helping others, Ravenclaw because i love books, slytherin because i don't back down, and gryffindor for being brave. Avatar ImageRinny says: In fandom circles, I always present myself as a Ravenclaw, mainly because blue is my favorite color so if I'm going to invest in clothes, decorations, etc. i want blues ones; plus I am kind of a geek who likes going to classes and such. the thing is, I think i might actually be a Gryffindor; which Ii feel like shouldn't be something to be embarrassed about, but I feel like all the "fake fans" choose Gryffindor when dressing up or picking a house, because they want to be like harry and the gang; and so I've avoided being associated with it. But my reasons why? My dad is a Slytherin, my mom is a Hufflepuff- I am almost a direct 50/50 split of their personalities. what do you get when you mix competitiveness and a desire to lead/be ahead with loyalty and strong morals? Gryffindor. For sure. I am really excited (and scared) to see where Jo's test will put me!Avatar ImageKatHearts says: I am a Wanna-Be Slytherin. If it weren't for the fact I am afraid of snakes, I would be in Slytherin. Since I'm not Slytherin, I am a Gryffindor. Avatar Image.ProudPotterhead. says: Ravenclaw, no doubt. Characteristics: Wit and Intelligence fit me, I've always been high in knowledge and like to do what is more than needed. Creativity, oh that fits the most out of the characteristics. I'm very creative, in many forms. Whether it's clothing, to drawing, to creating, to simply myself. I like to make things, unique in a sense! Now last, Wisdom, which really fits in with wit. I show Wisdom, and tend to use it to help rather than my own advantage. For other houses, the characteristics do not fit me honestly more than this. Moving on, where did I realize I was truely a Ravenclaw.. Well, when I read Sorcerer's stone, I honestly put myself into Gryffindor. Well honestly, who DIDN'T? We all wanted to be in Harry's house! But then.. I began to realize more and more during Sorcerer's stone that I didn't feel right in Gryffindor. I felt out of place. So I began to think, and compare myself and I just knew it. Ravenclaw was the house for me. I had no doubts! It has always just stuck with me throughout the series. It felt exactly where I belonged! And everything Ravenclaw is what I love! Rowena, oh how lovely she is. The Grey Lady is my favorite ghost! The colors, I adore, and actually Blue is my favorite color. Not to mention, I am one of the few who actually love Bronze as the original Ravenclaw color. Eagles attracted me the most out of the house animals. Eagles soar high, free and wise! Which represents who I try to be. I've just always felt a spark of Magic with Ravenclaw. I've never left it, and never plan to. My Favorite character herself is in Ravenclaw, Ms.Luna Lovegood! Which just shows, because I often can be like her a lot, Haha. It was always meant to be with Ra-Ra-Ra-Ravenclaw and Me! Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: When I was younger I would have sorted myself into Gryffindor because I wanted to be like Hermione. Then I accepted the fact that I was a Ravenclaw because I was smart. Of course I am a little bit like a Hufflepuff. I am a loyal friend. Just today, I helped a friend who was struggling with an audition even though I auditioned too! As I grow older, I become more and more like a Gryffindor and stand up for others. No one can really sort themselves,though. We don't even know what the darkest and deepest corners of our mind. Maybe it's because we're afraid to look or afraid it will reveal something bad about yourself that you will hate. The point is I don't know what I would be in. " The biggest mistake a man ever made is being afraid of making one." It's never to late to see what in hidden inside your mind.Avatar Imagelaurahg says: Gryffindor! thats were all the action is.Avatar Image.ProudPotterhead. says: HEY LISTEN! THAT COMMENT I POSTED, PLEASE REMOVE IT! I have a different account, .:ProudRavenclaw:. INSTEAD, because I accidently chose Gryffindor on this account for my house so I made a new one! PLEASE PAY ATTENTION THE THE .:ProudRavenclaw:. COMMENT ONLY!Avatar Image.ProudRavenclaw. says: Ravenclaw, no doubt.

Wit Beyond Measure is Man's Greatest Treasure` (ps, this is the same as .:ProudPotterhead:. because we are the same person. Just on that account I accidently put Gryffindor as my house, and it would not let me change it so I made a new account. This is my final account.)Avatar ImageSlytherinGPLover says: Another Weasley ;p so better be Gryffindor!since I have always been proud to be the Ginny Weasley of my group I can only be sorted in Gryffindor!always valued the principles of this noble House that fit my personality throughout the years. Gryffindor,where dwell the brave at heart,their daring and chivalry...Avatar Imagelyn_f says: I consider myself a Ravenclaw. I always liked to study for the sake of studying, and I love learning new things. I've also been a teacher as well, and nothing gives me more satisfaction that seeing my students "get it" when I explain a difficult concept.Avatar Imagekatniss123 says: I never identified strongly with any of the houses. It's weird, but even as a kid, I don't remember ever really taking on a house to call home. As a result, I consider myself a member of the House of Awesome. It's a place for anyone without a home, and I've never found a home anywhere else at Hogwarts. Technically, I'd almost certainly be a Ravenclaw, because my intelligence is one thing that has remained constant throughout my life. It is not, however, the quality that I'm most proud of, so even though I've pretty much always known that I fit best in Ravenclaw, I've never felt any loyalty to it. As for the other houses, I think we've probably all wanted to be in Gryffindor at some point or another because that's where most of the action in the books takes place, but I really don't fit the criteria of any of the other houses. So it's the House of Awesome for me. I'm really happy Whompy saw fit to create it because I really do feel like that's where I fit. I pledge my allegence to the polar bear on the purple and white banner (which I think should be the colors and symbol of the House of Awesome) =)Avatar ImageTurkishDelight says: i would say i would be in Gryfindor because i work very hard. this has changed over the years because as a kid i was very rude and figured that i would be in slytherin but have changed my ways .Avatar ImageDVM2B says: This is one of the hardest questions! I am always asked this and I can't choose between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. I am very booking and I always eager to learn, but I stand up for my friends. This is why I think of myself as a Gryffinclaw!Avatar ImageTarsieS says: I think, like most readers at first, I wanted to be in Gryffindor. However, as the years went by and I delved further into the characters I discovered that I was more of a cross between a Ravenclaw and a Slytherin. I certainly have the intelligence of a Ravenclaw but also the sarcastic wit and the ability to sit back, eat my popcorn and watch the world act like idiots like a Slytherin. For clarity's sake, I declare for Slytherin these days - but really I'm probably a Slytherclaw. Of course, being a declared Slytherin does not mean I'm a dark witch sympathizer either. It is just that the house mentality overall seems to fit me better.Avatar Imagehufflesarah says: I think I always wanted to be in Gryffindor when I first started getting into Harry Potter. But the older I got and the more I read I really started realizing how well I fit into Hufflepuff and despite the fact that we get a little bit of a bad rap. I've embraced the fact that I am a hard worker and loyal (almost to a fault). I do think we have all the houses in us, but some personalities shine stronger than others. Mine is Hufflepuff. :-)Avatar Imagesnowangle172002 says: My name called I walk up to the shorting hat and before shorting had is put on my head all they way I hear the words Gryffindor, I will always be true to Gryffindor.Avatar ImageRinaPeverell says: I would wholeheartedly say Ravenclaw. I'm very analytical, bookish, and intelligent. I enjoy learning, and reading is my all-time favorite pasttime. I enjoy showing off my wit and smarts, and can often become competetive about it. I like a good mental challnege. When I was younger, I used to think (or perhaps hope!) that I was a Slytherin. Then again, I was in that awkward 'rebel against the norm' stage, and I was under that silly misconception that all Slytherins were evil and hardcore, ha ha! Nowadays I have a great sense of pride for my house--Ravenclaw is the only house for me, really, all it took was a little self-discovery to realize it!Avatar Imagekelseymccracken says: I would sort myself into Hufflepuff, but that was certainly not always the case. At first, I was quite sure I'd be Ravenclaw; I think I'm smart and I value knowledge. And, of course, Slytherin and Gryffindor crossed my mind. I've stood up to one too many people in my life and I can be especially determined when its something I want. And I never considered Hufflepuff, because, well... as all us fans know... Hufflepuff is often seen as the house of dorks. Not nerds or geeks, but just dorks... just big losers. But, thats exactly why I'm Hufflepuff. I've been bullied my entire life, its something that has molded me into the person I am; I do believe I'm brave and intelligent and able, but more than anything... I am so ready to fight for other people. To stand by people like me. I don't know if thats loyalty and I might be so wrong about what house I really belong in, but if it was up to me, it'll be Hufflepuff. And, after all, it is our choices that make us who we are, right? :) Avatar ImageClaudiaS says: Hufflepuff then and now. I am happy and comfortable with that, too. Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: At first I certainly wanted to be a Gryffindor. How could I not, Harry being my favorite character and all? After a little while, though, I sat myself down and looked at myself honestly and realistically. I knew that, while a big part of me reeks of Gryffindor, my true soul is that of a Hufflepuff. If we could be sorted properly and truthfully, I would be a Gryffinpuff. Alas, that is not so but I stand tall as a proud member of HUFFLEPUFF!Avatar ImageDVM2B says: This is one of the hardest questions! I am always asked this and I can't choose between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. I am very booking and I always eager to learn, but I stand up for my friends. This is why I think of myself as a Gryffinclaw!Avatar Imagedobbyisfreee says: Hufflepuff house has never been enthusiastically embraced by the Harry Potter community. The most notable Hufflepuff, Cedric Diggory, and his heroic qualities weren’t appreciated as much as he deserves. Maybe it’s because he was the boyfriend of Harry’s crush and portrayed in the movies by an actor who also plays a certain sparkly vampire from a rival series. A Very Potter Musical, staring the Potter Community’s sweetheart Darren Criss, doesn’t help much either: “What the hell is a Hufflepuff?” asks Dumbledore in the musical, while Cedric states that Hufflepuffs are good finders. What the musical failed to include were the other enduring characteristic’s Hufflepuffs harbor: loyalty, patience, and fearlessness in the face of struggle. But back to the “good finders” part. Harry, a Gryffindor through it all, was also a good finder. He found friends, he found love, he found a way to destroy the most evil sorcerer the world had ever encountered, and finally through it all, he found family. I may not possess enough cunning or ambition to be placed in prestigious Slytherin house. I may not have the wisdom or brains to become an intelligent Ravenclaw. Neither do I have the bravery or the nerve to merit the acclaimed Gryffindor status. But through the years, I have found the strength to get through anything. I’ve found the ability to love myself, to embrace my talents whatever they may be, and to remain loyal to those who love me and the girl I am. I’ve found myself. A good finder: that’s me. Avatar ImageRemusRox says: I think I would be a Slytherin. I used to think I was a Ravenclaw worthy, but as time goes on I realize I'm more cunning and sometimes not-so-nice. Avatar Imagenot_slytherin413 says: When I first read Harry Potter, I, like many readers, craved to be in the valiant and adventurous Gryffindor. I wanted to be in Ron, Hermione, and Harry's inseperable clique, and I wanted to be best friends with Fred and George. However, as I grew up and as Harry Potter grew as well, I realized that I truly belonged in Ravenclaw. Yes, I am brave and adventurous, but my true talents and passions were more artistic and intellectual than anything else. Ravenclaw's wit and wisdom began to appeal to me more than the brawn and bravery of Gryffindor.Avatar ImageEgor says: Ravenclaw, because it definitely fits my attributes best.Avatar ImageEscere says: When I first began reading the books, I thought I was a Gryffindor. As I grew up and my view of things in the books shifted, I found myself relating to Slytherin. Then my sister decided that she was a Hufflepuff, so I had to rethink the other Houses. I jumped a round a bit, played with being a Hufflepuff, but now I have landed on Ravenclaw. If I have to chose one. Otherwise, I say I am not in any House because Sorting if just another way to stereotype people, and hate them for their House alliance rather than learning to know them for their actual personalities. Sorting is evil.Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: In the beginning, I thought I would be sorted into Ravenclaw. But, the older I get, the more sure I am that I am a Hufflepuff. Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: I have sorted myself into Gryffindor from the very beginning, and over the years my bond with that house has grown. I see myself as a true Gryffindor through and through. I am a loyal and true friend who would walk over fire for the ones I love. And if anyone one messes with my friends they are going to mess with me. Being a Gryffindor is more than just being in the same house at the Golden Trio, which is something in and of itself, it also shows how brave, loyal, loving anf true a person can be. We might not have all the smarts of Ravenclaw house, we have our own kind of smarts. Street smarts. We see what needs to be done and do it, no matter how hard or the cost. I am very proud, and honored to call myself a true Gryffindor. Avatar Imagepumpkin3 says: i used to want to be a gryffindor simply because it was the house of the main characters, but after a while i realized i belonged more in ravenclaw. i now prefer ravenclaw more than any other house. i love the way you have to answer a question instead of say a password to get into the towerAvatar ImageVerityDarling says: As much as we'd all like to be in the most famous of the houses, Gryffindor, I don't think I'd sort myself there :) Im not incredibly brave, nor vile and cut-throat, so that puts Gryffindor and Slytherin out. I'm also not smart in every aspect, so i don't think i survive in Ravenclaw, expecialy not with the darned door knocker! So that leaves Hufflepuff. Now I've always jokingly said that Hufflepuff is for "the rest", you know the ones who aren't extra smart, brave or mean. But i think thats where I'd most likely be! And I'm happy with that! :DAvatar Imagekianamalfoy says: I have always identified myself as a Slytherin. Partly because I idolize Draco Malfoy and Professor Snape, but mainly because I have always been ambitious, bossy, and a little more on the darker side. Because of my style and physical appearance, people frequently tell me how intimidating I seem, upon first meeting me. Although green is my least favorite color, I love snakes--I even have a red corn snake myself which I have had for over 9 years! Thus, I feel even more connected to the Slytherin house. Over the years, however, I have come to accept that I am mainly a Slytherin in every way, mentally, I am undoubtedly a Ravenclaw. My favorite qualities about myself are my intelligence, wittiness, and huge imagination. Because of my appearance, most people I meet do not expect me to be such an intellectual, and I love proving people wrong. So in that sense, I am again more of a Slytherin because I love to feel superior to others as a result of my Ravenclaw mind. Avatar ImageMopingMoaningMyrtle says: I would have to say Ravenclaw. Yes, it would be an honor to be sorted into Gryffindor. However, I know for a fact that I do not, nor will I ever, belong there. I am not courageous at all. I belong in Ravenclaw because I'm smart and clever. I think fast and always think of the consequences. Doing well on exams and such are very important to me, and I greatly value intelligence when befriending people. Avatar ImageMamere28 says: At first I thought I was a Gryffindor because that is the only house I knew and that is where Herminoe was. Then I thought I was a Hufflepuff because I am a true friend to all. Now I realize that I am more Gryffindor than I ever realized because of some challenges that I have faced lately. I am brave and when I need to stand up to others I do. I feel somewhat like Nevil Longbottom, a late bloomer who when needed shows his true Gryffindor self!

Avatar Imagesboyer06 says: I would sort myself into Gryffindor. I am very loyal to my friends and go out of my way to help others. Im not afraid to stand up to someone who is bullying another. Im a hard worker, not afraid to get dirty. I have friends in all different groups, so I imagine thats what it would be like to have friends in other houses. Not just friends in Gryffindor. Avatar Imagejustlike_a_sailor420 says: Naturally I was always drawn to gryffindor, believing that there was goodness in me and courage and bravery. But as I grew and as i became more acquainted with myself, i realized that Slytherin house woule be the one i would always be drawn to, despite myself and i don't hate it. I can be clever, i can pick apart the weaknesses of people and have gotten in trouble for using them to a T. I want to be powerful, unhindered, a leader with no drawbacks. while what ever genuine yearnings i have to be a gryffindor are, my heart knows its place in slytherin.Avatar Imageasiefert says: Honestly, I was really hoping to be a Gryffindor because of my love for the entire Weasley family. I wasn't upset, however, when I was sorted into Hufflepuff. When I think about it, that really does fit me, and it's where I belong! :) Avatar Imageasiefert says: Honestly, I was really hoping to be a Gryffindor because of my love for the entire Weasley family.

When I think about it, that really does fit me, and it's where I belong! :) Avatar Imageapkr42 says: Through the years of reading Harry Potter, I have always known I would be in Gryffindor, and not solely because it is the main house in the series. I've always been fascinated with Hogwarts, and every time I re-read The Sorcerer's Stone, I carefully analyse the Sorting Hat's song. I identify with their bravery and boldness and and every time I still find myself fitting in with the Gryffindors. Avatar ImageWitchChrissyAmI says: At the begining, I always wished to be in Gryffindor. Who wouldn't want to be in Gryffindor? But as time has gone,I feel I should be in Hufflepuff. Am very excited to go on Pottermore to find out if this is where I really belong!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I am such a total Ravenclaw...Avatar ImageEmmarose says: When i was young i think i always felt a Gryffindor, i was not, in my belief that intelligent as a kid, i would spend most of my time day dreaming, therefore i never felt a Ravenclaw, i always liked being alone rather than having many friends therefore i never felt a hufflepuff, and because i always saw Slytherin through Harry's eyes, i rather hoped i was not in that house. I always felt that Gryffindor was just good and whole, because, again i saw through Harry, and i could be particularly brave when it came to what i believed in. But now i'm older i think i have, and have nearly always had, a trait of each of the houses. I always tried hard at school, i have always loved learning new things, i am in many ways a science nerd. I have always been quite ambitious, though not necessarily in being rich and powerful, but i think that is a very common trait in Slytherins, whether or not your beliefs are different from the young Draco. And though i do not have a huge amount of friends which i always thought defined a Hufflepuff, i am extremely loyal to those i do have, and i would rather sacrifice my career than my relationships with family and friends. I think it does come down to, as Dumbledore points out, what are choices are. I think if i had been sorted when i was young i would have been a Gryffindor and that would have shaped me, and i believe, though i never actually got accepted to Hogwarts (boohoo), that is has. I am determined now to help animals, either in my career (if i'm successful) or in my spare time. And though i still think its a risky move, i know my younger self, the one that set me on this path would agree that giving up a potential career to start one that fulfills me not only professionally but personally is brave.Avatar ImageEmmarose says: P.s i just realised this was only for those in the U.S and i'm in the U.K haha, therefore i'm not eligible but either way it was nice to write it (:Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I would have sorted myself into Ravenclaw, although I have qualities that belong to other houses (like courage, loyalty, and I am awfully cunning!), I am *really* proud to be smart! I am smart at school, I'm a real "Hermione" in class, but sometimes I don't understand things or I forget to use common sense, but I still consider myself smart! Why? If I don't understand, I ask questions, if I don't know a word I run into, I write it down and check in a dictionary to see what it means! Being brilliant doesn't mean knowing everything, being brilliant means being able to think logically and always using your brain for *everything*, it also means to be open-minded and always consider any new idea and just think it through! My mind hasn't wavered to different houses ever since I've decided on Ravenclaw, because I know I could fit into any of those houses, but I believe my strongest quality I have, belongs to Ravenclaw.Avatar Imageyosafbridge says: When I was a kid I wanted to be in Gryffindor, because that's where Harry Potter was. I was probably 7 or 8. When I was 10 or so I decided I belonged in Ravenclaw. I was on Honour Roll all the time and I love to read and write, so I figured I was better suited for that house logically. This lasted me until the last book when the password for the Ravenclaw common room was revealed and I thought "well, screw that. Way too much effort, I may be smart, but I'm also lazy" Then I went Hufflepuff, because I wanted to be different and they didn't get a lot of play in the books. That lasted a year or so ('til I was like 19) until I realised that I don't know the first thing about Hufflepuff, but if there is anything I am NOT it's fair or hard-working (again with the laziness) This perplexed me for a while until I realised that 8 year old me was actually completely right, just for the wrong reasons; I can't claim bravery (anyone who can is probably conceited and would end up in Slytherin anyway) but I can definitely claim foolhardiness. I rush into potentially dangerous situations with little thought for my own safety. I go out of my way to compete with my brother in every situation, scary or no. I'm not scared of much (save for spiders) and tend to be very action-oriented; climbing trees and running about (even now that I'm 20) In the end I realised that I've been a Gryffindor my entire life, and it was just my distaste for my 7 year old self choosing a house JUST because the main character was in it that was blinding me from this revelation for years as I stumbled about trying to fit myself into one of the other three houses. Avatar ImageAshleyRickman says: When I was younger and reading the books for the first time I felt that I belonged in Ravenclaw. I was a bit quiet and extremely bookish as a child. But as I grew older and really discovered myself, I realized that Slytherin was a much better fit. Not only do I have the hots for a certain Head of House (NOT Slughorn!) but I feel that my childhood has given me a strong sense of resourcefulness. I would have fit in well with the little snakes as we grew. Avatar ImageGwynogs_rabbit says: Hufflepuff and Gryffindor duke it out in my head all the time. I do have a "saving people" (or critter) thing, and never think of the danger - but mostly what propels my protection of people is an intense sense of equality. Someone who messes with another person, especially with a person who is weaker in some way, is likely to see me turn into a vicious defender who may physically harm them. So which is stronger, the egalitarian motivation or the protective response? And then I think - well, the Hufflepuff common room seems like it would be so warm and sunny, even if it's underground, with kindred spirits who would never be casually careless with other people's feelings. On the other hand, I'd kick myself if I chose Hufflepuff and missed out on the Gryffindor adventures. Then I think, well Gryffindors can be loose cannons sometimes, whereas Hufflepuffs are exactly who you would want in charge, in places like government or management. They would be motivated by the right thing more than anything else. But I'd have a hard time passing up that opportunity for life-threatening adventure. So - still don't know.Avatar Imagehermy007 says: im very undecided because nearly every quiz i took told me i should be in hufflepuff, yet i could definitely see myself in ravenclaw because of my study habits....but i very recently found out that i protect the ones i love to the point of stupidity, even if it puts me into danger myself. so i guess i changed in some ways, i never really knew that about myself until it happened. so i wouldnt mind being in ravenclaw, but i think when it comes down to it, i would go into the house of godric.Avatar Imagecasraecal says: Like the thousands of other fan I to feel I would be sorted into Gryffendor, and on July 29th 2010 I actually was! The first thing my dad and I did after getting the news I was an eligible candidate for Laser Eye Surgery was attend the Harry Potter Exhibition. When we got there as many of you know they do a quick sorting cermoney. So there I was 25 and surrounded by shy little kids and there parents, the "Headmaster" asked if there were any volunteers to be sorted, and just like a one of our most beloved characters my hand instantly shot into the air. After a light hearted joke about how I must be a Weasley (due to my bright red hair) I processed to sit on the stool awaiting the moment that the sorting had would decide my fate, crossing my finger and hoping "not Slytherin, just not Slytherin" quietly to myself. Of I already told you how it ended. "Gryffendor" the hat roared. Upon reflection of wither I truly was a Gryffendor. I am pleased to say I most defiantly would be. I can't count the number of times that I wound up in trouble on for the teachers to realize all I really had do was stand up for my friends, even it did get me into a bit of trouble it was better knowing I helped them. I have often found myself facing my fears or standing up for what I know to be right. It is also why I have chosen to be an Arour ( or Police Officer as Muggles tend to call them :) ) In short ... I am a Gryffendor!Avatar Imagei am humerus07 says: with my attitude at a young age i would of been slytherin but now i'd say more like gryffindor as i've grown and matured.Avatar ImageTreeHugger says: I've always considered myself a Hufflepuff, at first, when I was younger, I just liked the name. But later on I really looked at what a Hufflepuff really is and decided my little kid judgment was right. I have waved in Ravenclaw for a while, but I've always been a true Hufflepuff!!Avatar ImageEve13 says: I used to think gryffindor, probably just because in the books that's the house they described as the house that everyone wants to be in. Now if I could choose which house I got sorted into I would probably still choose gryffindor, but I think realistically the sorting hat would sort me into ravenclaw.Avatar Imageniggleleaf says: Hmmm, difficult. I'm definitely too self-centered for a Hufflepuff, and too sincere for a Slytherin. I am more Hermione than Harry or Ron, but I also have a strong strain of Luna, so I've nearly always thought that I'd be a Ravenclaw (especially as blue is my favorite color and I love eagles). But I realized recently that I am more like Molly Weasley than anyone else in canon, so I might actually belong in Gryffindor.Avatar Imagehrrypttrfn328 says: I started out wanting to be a Gryffindor when I was 8 and it was the "it" house. I then changed my mind to Slytherin since it seemed like the most fun and my favorite colour is green. But I think now that I am something called a Slytherclaw (Slytherin Ravenclaw hybrid) since no one really fits only one house. I have the self-preservation and occasional cunning of a Slytherin mixed with the study habits and intuition of a Ravenclaw. It may be a bit cocky to consider myself part of the two more intelligent houses of the four, but I am studying to become a teacher and need to go write a 6 page paper now, so I will try boosting my ego before-hand in this post. Good luck to everyone responding.Avatar Imagecluna123 says: I would sort myself in Ravenclaw. At first I would join the bandwagon and want to be sorted in Gryffindor. Then, I realized that Ravenclaw was the place for me ever since I realized how smart I was. I did not know I was that smart until I knew more things than what my teachers taught me in middle school and sometimes now in high school. So, yeah, I would want to be in Ravenclaw.Avatar Imagevsc1992 says: I've always seen myself as very Hermione-ish when it came to sorting. My choice was always Gryffindor but the sorting hat quizzes are always split between Gryyfindor and Ravenclaw.Avatar Imagecapella_black says: When I first joined the fandom, I sorted myself into Slytherin because I liked the Black family and they were predominantly Slytherin (even though Sirius is my most favorite). When I posted a story about meeting J. K. Rowling and one of the commenters said that I showed true Gryffindor courage, I was floored, immensely flattered. But the deciding moment for me was reading DH and Luna saying to Harry, as they are trying to get into the Ravenclaw common room, "That way you learn, you see?" That is my philosophy about everything! So many things that most people would consider an enormous waste of time, I think, "Well, at least I'll learn something from it!" Which means that Ravenclaw must be my proper spiritual home. I can't wait for Pottermore to see if Jo Rowling agrees!Avatar Imagegreenfinch says: At first, like everyone else, I wanted to be a Gryffindor, then a few years ago I started leaning more towards Slytherin (I feel like they're underappreciated and sort of written off a lot), but then I started thinking about where I SHOULD be sorted, rather than where I wanted to be. After thinking about it for a while, I came to the conclusion that sorting isn't right. As the sorting hat said, it's more important to be united as one and combine all our qualities. I have a bit of each house in me- I have the stubborn convictions of a Gryffindor, the love of knowledge of a Ravenclaw, the loyalty (and social awkwardness) of a Hufflepuff, and the clever cunning of a Slytherin.Avatar Imagebailey.lottes says: I always just assumed I was a Gryffindor just because that is the house we know the most about, but honestly I am a Hufflepuff through and through, every web quiz has told me that and I have come to accept it and love it! :DAvatar ImageKitty07 says: I'm definitely a Gryffindor; I fight for what I believe in, this includes stepping up for people who can't do it themselves, even if it means having to fight intimidating figures. For this I believe myself to be brave and chivalrous. I also fight for what I want (that's the reason I have such good grades + curriculum: I need to get into a good university!) I guess that'd make me a fighter, though I am very peaceful. I also don't discriminate (so, yeah, no Slytherin blood in my veins).Avatar Imagemaddison says: I guess if I were in the great hall about to be sorted I would feel like Harry that I didnt possess any of those great qualities but i think I would be sorted into Gryffindor because ever since I read and fell in love with Harry Potter i've always supported and love Gryffindor. When i imagine myself at Hogwarts I always seem to be in Gryffindor, i feel proud of Gryffindor house its my home. I am definately not as brave Harry ,Ron ,Hermione or any of the Gryffindors but like Harry the sorting hat takes into accord what I would want and that would be Gryffindor!Avatar ImageLaLuney says: I would like to be put in Hufflepuff. I think if I were to be actually sorted, the house the sorting hat would like to put me in is Ravenclaw. Ravenclaw has a lot of my characteristics, but Hufflepuff has the qualities I admire the most.Avatar Imageslythphoenix says: I didn't sort myself until I was maybe 12 or 13 (when I was younger I just wanted to GO to Hogwarts, nevermind the house) but I think the first time I was aware of it I sorted myself as Slytherin. I certainly don't remember ever seriously thinking about this and coming up with a different answer back then. Around that time, I was dealing with a lot, from hormonal problems to divorce to moving, and I really clammed up as a person. My temper became more cold and calculating when it came out, I wanted friends, but could never open myself up enough to make them, and as a result, most of my life was pretty solitary, except for friends made on the internet, because I could be a Ravenclaw with words. I've always accepted that I'm not a necessarily brave or universally magnanimous person, bu as I've grown and made more close friendships I've come to believe that I can be a good person when it counts. These days I see myself as a Slytherclaw, because when I'm happy, I'm more of a Ravenclaw, and I'm happy more now, but I still have an underlying Slytherin perception of the world Avatar ImageJustOddBall says: I've constantly believed that I was a true Gryffindor, but I think that it was because everybody idolized Gryffindor and the students in it. Now I see that the qualities of Gryffindors are not the qualities that I have. They're daring, brave and bold- I'm not exactly a dare devil. I'm not like Harry and the other Gryffindors who are willing to battle men and monsters twice their size and skill. So I began to think, and I knew I wasn't a Slytherin. They're Gryffindors whose actions are usually for means that are wrong. Not all of them, but quite a few. That leaves two houses. Am I Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff? Well, Hufflepuffs value patience and fairness (and they're great finders!). I do value that, but shouldn't any decent person? I don't go out of my way to always be patient (I lose my temper easily) and fair. (I also constantly lose things and can never find them). That leaves those smart Ravenclaws. I love learning and books and riddles and all those sorts of things. And I want to continue education and learning after college. The only career I can think of pursuing would be teaching. I've definitely been drawn to Ravenclaws lately, mostly because Luna is in that house. I value her different way of thinking. Sometimes I look at things differently, like a Ravenclaw would. So I guess at heart, I'm a true Ravenclaw. Even if my profile says Gryffindor, Ravenclaw burns a blue fire within me. Avatar Imageaice031 says: i believe that i would be in Gryffindor. Not only because harry,ron,hermione are sorted there. I may not look like a brave person,but all troubles i face even if i'm dead scared,i take them on and handle them the best way i could even if it seems hopeless. That's the reason why i know that i truly belong in the Gryffindor.Avatar ImageLily Evans30 says: I belong to Gryffindor where dwell the brave at heart, their daring nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart. I feel kind of stupid posting this a lot of comments say they wanted to be a Gryffindor and then changed or whatever. But not me, always a Gryffindor here ROAR!!! But I can't wait till Pottermore to see where Jo would put me, that kind of like the ultimate sorting test... Avatar ImageRubeusHagrid says: I think the Sorting Hat would have some serious trouble with me. It might even give up and cry, "ALAS A MUGGLE---SEND IT BACK!!", but who knows. I, not to be pompous, got on my finals the highest possible score on English, and a very high one on mathematics as well. So here is a Ravenclaw like trait. I also read constantly, and love school and learning. But I also have been in extremely scary situations--like watching someone being domestically abused in front of my eyes. I fought back, too. And I'm stupid when it comes to dares--I always do them. I was so rash, and ridiculously dumb once, that I attempted to jump over a 15 foot/ 5 meter river and made it quite a bit short, and was wet for the rest of the day. But I did originally feel like a Gryffindor. I am also a Hufflepuff. I enjoy comfort--the common room would be wonderful for me--the yellow (favorite color) armchairs, which are squashy, near the kitchen, and everything being warm.. I am also loyal, and kind, and patient: I babysit 5 nights a week, for money and because I enjoy it. I also work hard in both studies and at my summer job on a farm. Finally, I can be a Slytherin: I'm very ambitious, sometimes quite sarcastic, and sneaky when I want to be. So I'm very eager for the official Sorting on Pottermore.com to decide for me.. But as of now, I'd say that I'm a Ravenclaw. But you never know.Avatar ImageLuna333 says: I'm definitely a Ravenclaw- as an adolescent- I would have been a Hufflepuff, in high school I could have been a Griffendore, then there were the early 90's- where I DEFINITELY would have been a Slytherine- but nowadays, I think I'm smarter and more clever than in my youth so I'd go into Ravenclaw. The books have clearly defined the differences and made it fun to imagine myself in every house. Avatar ImageLuna333 says: and I'm not as clever as I thought because I've misspelled almost every house name. Avatar Imageeden97 says: I'm shaking, and sitting on a stool, looking out at expectant faces. What house will I be in? Some sort of hat is put on my head and- Hmmm..well what do we have here? You are brave, have a good heart and would do practically anything for others. A Gryffindor? Yet you have qualities that make you a Ravenclaw. Your love of books, and learning, being studious, however that does not make you a Hufflepuff since you're not that hardworking. Well your qualities out-weigh each other, so, better be.. GRIFFINDOR! The hat was taken off my head, and I made my way to the table that now held my fellow house mates. As I sat down, looking around at all of these people smiling at me, I felt that this was were I belonged.Avatar Imageginny_weasley1998 says: Ok, so I thought about my first answer and I still think.. Many ppl would put them selves with the heroes but after I thought about it I think I would be in raven claw because my intelligence ..and Luna is in there! HeheAvatar Imageowlchick says: I've always found the fact that there are houses to be rather unfortunate--they were like pre-set cliques where by being sorted into one house you are instantly imbued with characteristics that may or may not truly suit you. Unfortunately or fortunately, over time this choice of house carries you like a river current. I'm thinking of Malfoy in particular, and especially Snape. It's like having to pick your college major AND college before you even really know yourself--the small choices we make early on in life compound themselves as we grow older. That said, when I first started reading this book, I did not even question that I was a Gryfffindor as I'm fairly selfless and brave; but then as the books continued and Luna was introduced, I very much identified with her (my personality is somewhere between Luna and Hermione), so in the end I think I'm probably more of a Ravenclaw. The thing is, I feel like everyone has aspects of each house in their own personalities, it's ultimately what you choose to express or repress in your behavior that determines what sort of person you are. We've seen meanness in Ron long before he ever put on the Slytherin locket. It's just unfortunate that the wee first years pretty much get their fate stamped on them so early on, but how is that different to how we are born rich or poor? Sorry, totally digressing and I've had way too much coffee. :)Avatar ImageRowena_is_my_hero says: When I first started the books at age 5, I wanted to be a Gryffindor, of course! but I found later on that I think a little too hard about things to be considered a courageous lion, and fit more easily into Ravenclaw with my logical thinking and obsession with reading and learning anything I can get my hands on.Avatar Imageposhayy says: At first, I automatically sorted myself into Gryffindor. I was really young and I wanted to be one of the good guys, and obviously, the only good guys were Gryffindors. As I continued to read (and reread) the books, I realized that every house had good and bad qualities, and there were no defined good guys and bad guys. I started to identify more with Slytherin, and I realized that one of the main differences between Gryffindors and Slytherins was patience. Gryffindors rush to the rescue, but Slytherins wait for the opportune moment. That was evident in Narcissa Malfoy's actions in Deathly Hallows. Some people might say that she was using a bit of Gryffindor courage to defy Voldemort, but she embodied Slytherin. Instead of acting rashly, she used any means to achieve her ends--her Slytherin cunning to ensure the safety of her family. They're not obvious about it, but Slytherins can be good guys too. I'm proud to have the ambition, the cunning, and most importantly the patience of a Slytherin. Avatar Imageronandharrylover says: I would love to be in Gryffindor, I mean of course almost everyone wants to because thats where Hermione,Ron, and Harry are sorted into. I guess I would love to know that I could be with them and be the hero also. I guess it would make sense to me if I were in Ravenclaw because I get pretty good grades and brains. Sometimes though I have blond moments but I work hard so I could be in HufflePuff. I love being a leader so I guess part of me could belong there, but honestly I hate it.

But afterwhile, I saw the other side of the story (and Tom Felton is one sexy Draco!) and became a Slytherin. Now I realize I'm more of a Ravenclaw so I guess I'm a Slytherclaw!Avatar ImageShona says: i know everyone is saying how they thought gryffindor at first but then realised they wernt really but i really think i would belong in gryffindor i have always thought gryffindor and it has never changed i think its because i relate to ginny in every aspect of her life if i was in harry potter and i could be any character it would definatly be ginny so gryffindor all the way!Avatar ImageNevilla says: I've always sorted myself into Gryffindor. However, the reason for that has changed. Ten years ago, I would have said it was because I was brave and fearless. Now, I think it's because I'm willing to face fear, but not fearless. Six years ago I faced fear when I almost lost my son to a drunk driver. My son survived, and he's okay now. However, I know now that I am NOT fearless, but I can and will face fear. And I think that makes me a truer Gryffindor than I ever was before. Avatar ImageNevilla says: I've always sorted myself into Gryffindor. However, the reason for that has changed.

Avatar Imagel.lovegood says: At first I thought I was a Gryffindor because I thought that Gryffindor was the coolest house out of all four houses. Also, I felt like it would be the most comfortable and homely one because I already knew so much about it because of Harry. However, a few years ago, I felt like I was more likely to be in Ravenclaw because I loved school, had good grades, and was a good student. That changed a little bit over the past few years because school has become increasingly more difficult, and I like high school less and less. However, I still think I am more a Ravenclaw than a Gryffindor because I still like the idea of school, even if I don't like high school that much, and I am really excited for college. Additionally, one of my favorite colors is blue, and one of my favorite characters is Luna Lovegood, a Ravenclaw. Lastly, I believe that Ravenclaw is for people who are not merely book smart; it is also for people, like Luna, who are clever in many unique ways.Avatar ImageDharereal says: I would sort myself into gryffindor because I'm a gryffindor at heart. At one point I might have thought myself to be a hufflepuff. But I'm not. I would never be a syltherin just for the simple fact that syltherins are gifted at magic but usually use it wrong. Never considered being a ravenclaw. So I'm a gryffindor at heart and always will be!Avatar Imagedoctorginny says: I've always wanted to know everything. I was never the kind of girl to wish for one million crayons or the chance to become a popular singer because, well, those things are very, very, very unlikely. But, if there's one irrational wish I've ever wished for, it's to know everything. It is for this reason that I was sure that I would be a Ravenclaw because in my strive to know everything, I've become quite clever. But, you see, I think I've become too smart for my own good and made myself, for lack of a better word, arrogant. And not only am I rational, intellectual, and rather arrogant, I am also bold and tend to have more of a fight resoponse than a flee response to bad situations. So, as I've come to realize myself for my lovely faults, I've realized that, despite my other notable traits of cleverness and loyalty, I'll always be a Gryffindor.Avatar ImageAndreaB09 says: How wouldn't want to be in Gryiffindor? House of the brave, and couragous. I automatically put myself in that house when I was younger in hopes that I would be more like the characters. It seems that as the books have grown and new characters have began to arise, it seems like I forgot there was 3 other houses. I'm not brave, evil, or have a love of cooking like the head house of Huffelpuff. I have always loved the wisdom of life, and I think I would be suited well in Ravenclaw Tower. A true Edgar Allen Poe in the making. (note: Raven joke)Avatar Imagepinklaura says: I would sort myself into Gryffindor, and that hasn't changed at all!Avatar ImageFred_and_George87 says: I have and still do sort myself into Ravenclaw. Even at eleven, I always had a thirst for knowledge. Sure I have a Gryffindor house tie, but that was because I wanted to be with Harry and his friends. Not because I felt any affinity to that house. I am know, and always will be, a proud Ravenclaw!Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: I too, at first, would have said Gryffindor...I think I do possess some of the qualities of Gryffindor...and perhaps at the age of 11 the hat may have considered putting me there. Now I think it would place me in Ravenclaw. Now that I am out of college, I learn about things I want to, and find it very enjoyable. My nose is often in a book, when I have the time.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Good luck to all who enter!Avatar Imagehandhrfan18 says: i would put myself in gryffindor! i mean i am daring and brave than some of my friends :]. i just love the concept of the house and what they do and i am not book smart i know that. Avatar Imageradishraven says: When I was eleven, you could say I was a real Ravenclaw. Always top in class, eager to learn about anything. But as I grew up I think I became more of a hufflepuff. I've grown to be friendlier with people and I don't lose my patience easily. It is only now that I give mysef a thought about the underestimated house of hufflepuff. Not all hufflepuffs are like "chill let's get some more butterbeer". Actually I find it more honorable to work hard than to be brave or smart. OK so I'm a real coward...what's wrong with that?Avatar ImagethelonglostWeasley says: At first of course I wanted to be a Gryffindor like everyone else but not only because Harry, Hermione, and Ron were in it, but because my older sister is in that house. I look up to her a lot so of course I want to be with her. But I know that I would either be a Hufflepuff or a Ravenclaw. Hufflepuff- I am very diligent and hard-working, and I am loyal, and people are always commenting me on how I am always smiling and turning something bad into something good and I am respectful. Ravenclaw- I am intelligent and clever, but thats not why I would be a Ravenclaw, its cause I love learning and finding the truth.
