Hogwarts Houses

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. (Quote from the Sorting Hat from the Harry Potter series)

You probably know about the Harry Potter franchise. You probably also know about the iconic Hogwarts Housing System. If not, the Hogwarts Housing System is basically four different groups. Each house represents four kinds of personalities. You get ¨sorted¨ into the house you´re most like. Ever since people started reading, people have begun to be curious; which house would they go to? Well, we´ll figure that out.


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

Gryffindor. The most famous house of them all, housing the golden trio; Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Gryffindor is the house of bravery. People who get sorted into Gryffindor are known to be very courageous, chivalrous, and determined. Gryffindors are mostly known for their ¨act first, think later¨ attitude. They tend to be very rebellious. That´s not always a bad thing though; Gryffindors are very willing to break the status quo if they believe necessary. Most of the time though, they can do the most unnecessary things just for fun.


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

Draco Malfoy, the main Slytherin antagonist. Although being known as the most cunning and ¨mean¨ house, that´s not always the case. Slytherins actually stands for ambition. Slytherins are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve victory. Slytherins also can be very resourceful and adaptable. Although being very focused on self-preservation, people in this house are very loyal to the ones they´re close to and known to be very good leaders, being able to easily command an audience.


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

Hufflepuffs; although being very known as the opposite of Slytherins, do have a lot in common. Like Slytherins, this house is also very loyal, yet they like to do things traditionally, through hard work. Hufflepuffs may seem sweet and innocent, yet they can be very overprotective of the ones they love are on the line. Otherwise, they´re very kind and just super friendly to be around.


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

Last but not least are the Ravenclaws. This house is for the students of learning and wit. Ravenclaws are often described as ¨weird¨ because of their outside-the-box thinking. These people want to know the who, what, when, where, and why of everything. Ravenclaws are very innovative, having creative solutions for everything; also being able to debunk situations with no stress.
