I used to think I should be in Ravenclaw, but then I realised I’m not very smart. It must be Hufflepuff.

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.

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!

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 :)

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

(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.)

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.
