How big of a Harry Potter fan are you? Perhaps you’ve staged a marathon of the movies or created a themed party. Maybe you memorized the books and know the movies scene by scene, or you might struggle with identifying with one of the four Houses.
Slytherin, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Gryffindor each have defining characteristics. Perhaps you are a hasty person, quick to rush into situations with guns blazing. Or you’re more calculative and wait to see which is to your advantage. Maybe you’re a unique unicorn, with your head in the clouds and your bare feet in the dirt? You may not know what house you’d be sorted into, but we feel confident that we do. Take this test to see what Hogwarts House you'd wind up in.
Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.
Hogwarts isn’t the only school with a housing system. Schools in England and the United States have long used housing systems to help students form close-knit communities and compete in inter-school sports teams. Some schools have as many as ten houses. Others, like the fictional Hogwarts, have as few as four.
The number of students per house depends on the school. McCracken County High School in Kentucky, for example, has one of the largest house populations: 5 houses with 400 students per house! Upon arriving, each student is sorted into one of the houses for the duration of their stay.
Traditionally, this housing system applied to boarding schools. The process encourages youth to join team activities and develop a sense of family while away from home. Houses are traditionally named after famous alumni, animals, or in the case of Hogwarts, the school’s founders.
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
