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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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” :)

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. .

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.
