If you went to Hogwarts, what house would you be in and why?

I think I would probably be in Ravenclaw, because I've always done well in school. However, I'm a loyal friend, so I could fit in Hufflepuff. I'd like to think that I would be in Griffindor, but I don't know if I'm brave enough. I am certainly adventurous - I love to travel and try challenging new things, but brave? Not sure. Definitely would not be in Slytherin though, and not just because of Malfoy.

Well which house's traits do you most resemble? Gryffindor: Brave and full of valour, Ravenclaw: wise and knowledgeable, Hufflepuff: loyal friend, Slytherin: ambitious?

I honestly don't know. I see qualities from all the houses in myself. The sorting hat would problably have a fun time with me. I've done well in school, I'm a loyal friend but I also work well with others. I can also be a bit devious. I think though whatever house I was put in I'd manage to do well :) So maybe I'd end up in Slytherin since I try to turn things to my advantage.

I had a hard time deciding too - in fact, I don't think I really decided except that I wouldn't be in Slytherin :P But you make a good point about turning things to your advantage. However, that could just be looked at as optimism - not necessary deviousness or manipulation (I can't help having such a biased view of Slytherin, it's J.K.'s fault!)

I'm a total Hufflepuff. I'm hardworking, loyal and diligent. I have shades of Slytherin because I am very ambitious and I will do what's best for me, but overall I'm a Hufflepuff. There's doubt in my mind that that's the House I'd be sorted into.

The Sorting Hat might try to decide which one you were more like. If you are more loyal than ambitious, then I would say Hufflepuff. If it's the other way around, and you'd do what's best for you over a friend, then probably Slytherin.

Heh as fun as I'm sure that would be, you couldn't make up a new house because you have to be sorted by the Sorting Hat, and there are only 4 houses it will choose from! Nice try though. :P

I am pretty sure i would be in griffindor, as i am a team player, and a loyal friend, and am willing to go to any lengths to solve a good mystery, including breaking a few rules!!! And if by some weird twist of fate i ended up in Slytherin i would kick Malfoys a**!!!!

Good reasoning - working well in a group.. hmm.. didn't think of that - maybe I COULD be in Gryffindor *wishful thinking* :) Thanks for your response!
