Which Hogwarts House Would You Be In?
Lets be honest, the sorting hat is basically a personality test.
I’ve had several discussions with friends on this topic lately, and I’ve come to the realization that the house I thought the sorting hat would place me in as a child might not be the right choice. Or at least the “right choice” has changed in the many years since the post owl got lost in a storm and didn’t deliver my acceptance letter… Unreliable, owls.
As a child, I assumed I would be in Gryffindor. I related with the gryffindors in the books at the time, but as an adult I think that Slytherin is where I might actually belong. Is it odd that I feel like that is almost a shameful admission? I think there are so many negative connotations with Slytherins, but I also see ambition, cunning, self preservation, resourcefulness, determination, power, leadership, tradition… Those aren’t all bad, right?
As Hagrid says, you might think “There’s not a single witch or wizard who went bad who wasn’t in Slytherin,” but that’s not entirely true. Not every Slytherin was a Death Eater. Not only were there plenty of screw-ups outside of Slytherin, but there are also many great Slytherins who didn’t mow people down with green flames and curses. Perhaps being a Slytherin isn’t so bad – I just need to find some more Slytherin friends (most of my friends are Ravenclaws, and I love them dearly). 😉
