Oh you may not think I'm pretty,
But don't judge on what you see,
I'll eat myself if you can find
A smarter hat than me.

You can keep your bowlers black,
Your top hats sleek and tall,
For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.

There's nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

So put me on! Don't be afraid!
And don't get in a flap!
You're in safe hands (though I have none)
For I'm a Thinking Cap!


- The Sorting Hat Song in 1991

For those of you who've read Harry Potter, what house do you think suits you the most? Are you a mix or purely one? Have you ever done a sorting quiz or gone on Pottermore? What house did you get if so? Do you agree? For those of you who have never read the series, which of the above descriptions do you think suits you best? Feel free to elaborate how you're a certain trait etc.

(I've always wanted to see one of these threads. :p)

I am a Gryffindor through and through, and a Slytherin after that. After all, the two are very similar, as seen with Harry's little sorting conundrum he had after that song. Charisma and charm can work both ways.

I'm a Slytherin first and foremost Ravenclaw is a close second. Pottermore gave me green, as have more than one personality quiz.

For this: http://www.personalitylab.org/tests/ccq_hogwarts.htm

I got:

Gryffindor - 48, Ravenclaw - 70, Hufflepuff - 62, Slytherin -75

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

I can agree to that.

Personally, I think I'm a mix of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw! I'm not really a Slytherin, being cunning and ambitious isn't my thing. In most sorting quizzes, I've gotten the result of Hufflepuff but on Pottermore, I'm apparently a Gryffindor. Yeah, okay. XD

Gryffindor: 80
Ravenclaw: 92
Hufflepuff: 94
Slytherin: 41

I definitely agree with the results. :]

I'm a Hufflepuff, with Ravenclaw and Griffindor coming up a close second and third. Slytherin can go home. :P

Griffindor: 70
Ravenclaw: 75
Hufflepuff: 91
Slytherin: 48

I always think of myself to be some odd combination between Hufflepuff and Slytherin, particularly since I'm a Hufflepuff in my school's HP club and a Slytherin on Pottermore. The test is too long to take right now, though, but I usually always fall towards either of these houses using most tests.

I'm too lazy to take the test, so I'm definitely not fit to be a Hufflepuff ;) I'd say I fit best as Ravenclaw, though I don't really feel super smart at all times. Maybe that's not a requirement though, seeing as people in Gryffindor aren't exactly brave at all times. Only when it matters :3 I wouldn't do anything, like bad things to achieve my goals, so Slytherin wouldn't fit me.

I played Pottermore and was placed in Gryffindor. I was cool with this. Gryffindor is awesome (especially now that I'm in it xD). I don't know if I'm really that brave, since I've never been in a situation that required me to be that brave, but I do try to put others before myself, so there is that...

I tend to think I'm a Hufflepuff, even though it's far from my favorite house. Not particularly outstanding but goodhearted.

Test results:
Gryffindor: 35
Ravenclaw 42
Hufflepuff: 76
Slytherin: 46

That is a whole lot of Slytherin I was not expecting.

I would say I'm a Ravenclaw. I know I'm not brave and fiery enough to be Gryffindor and I'm not ambitious enough for Slytherin. Hufflepuff always felt like the house for leftovers who didn't fit into any other so I don't think that's for me either.

Gryffindor - 56
Ravenclaw - 67
Hufflepuff - 66
Slytherin - 65

Apparently the test thinks I'm a mix.

I would consider myself a Gryffindor. The test results are surprisingly accurate:

Gryffindor: 84
Ravenclaw: 80
Hufflepuff: 80
Slytherin: 54

I knew it! I'm definitely a Gryffindor.

Gryffindor: 89%
Hufflepuff: 72%
Ravenclaw: 66%
Slytherin: 61%

I spent several minutes of my life which I'll never get back on doing that test. Just wanted to say that.

Gryffindor: 79
Ravenclaw: 72
Hufflepuff: 69
Slytherin: 62

I don't really think I should be a Gryffindor, but maybe that's just because I think Harry is a massive dick.

That was almost exactly what I was expecting. I was placed into Ravenclaw on Pottermore, too.

I haven't taken the test (will do it later), but I'd say that Ravenclaw fits me the most. Slytherin fits me as well, but not as much as Ravenclaw.

I've always been a Hufflepuff in every quiz and both times I went into Pottermore, but took the test anyway. :P

G: 43
R: 75
H: 85
S: 51

I'm much more Ravenclaw than I expected, though. I'm fair and kind to others and I feel much more Hufflepuff than Ravenclaw but maybe I just don't give myself enough credit (as is a habit of mine).

Pottermore sorted me into Ravenclaw, so there you go.
I don't really see myself as having the same intellect and wit as someone from Ravenclaw, but I do consider myself to be a creative person, which is another one of the traits.

I took a test and got these:

Gryffindor - 62
Ravenclaw - 66
Hufflepuff - 62
Slytherin - 66

I'm comfortable with it either way. Sometimes it isn't all about modesty so I believe it was accurate enough. That doesn't mean that I want to aspire like this, just that the accuracy of this test is unnerving.
