This is a bit of a random post but I really love hearing about which Hogwarts houses people identify with. So, I thought it might be fun to share my house sorting story with you guys! I did this a few years ago so forgive me if I am a bit off with specifics of the test! I just re-did the test and it seems to have been changed a bit from my initial experience.
I did this test a few years ago when I excitedly learned from a friend that it existed. I went into this test hoping for a Slytherin sorting and expecting that result. Imagine my surprise when I was sorted into Gryffindor.
Don’t get me wrong I think it is a wonderful house, but I am not a brave person. For example, I often find myself reading books and becoming annoyed when the protagonist decides to get into a situation that is at all dangerous…Which I realize is sort of necessary for an interesting story, but I digress.
If I were to choose a secondary house to be in I imagined that I would be in Ravenclaw. I adore their common room (I mean they have their own library!) and I am very much a nerd. However, I am terrible with riddles and probably wouldn’t be even able to get into the common room, which would be quite sad.
Anyway back to the point, my friend messaged me asking whether I had been sorted into Slytherin as I expected. So I googled the answers to each question to ensure a Slytherin sorting. As I recall it was my favourite nature landscape which determined my original sorting. I think I may have chosen a Forrest rather then the Sea as my preference (but this might be incorrect). So I changed this aspect of my test and was finally sorted into Slytherin.
Once I was satisfied with my results, I told my friend what had happened and she replied that my story was incredibly Slytherin-ish. I realized that she may be right and started laughing. So now I feel quite comfortable calling myself a Slytherin when I am asked.
Also, as I said I just re-took the test to refresh my memory and I was actually sorted into Slytherin on my first attempt!
As an aside, I would also love to be in Hufflepuff if only for a Badger mascot and the fact that in French it is delightfully called Poufsouffle !
If you guys have taken this test please let me know where you were sorted and if you agree with the results !
