Ravenclaw, because it definitely fits my attributes best.

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.

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.

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.

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 tower

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! :D

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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! :)

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.
