In Which Hogwarts House Do You Truly Belong?

Today’s feature for the Reel Lit Gets Buzzed series combines my love of BuzzFeed Quizzes with my love for all things Harry Potter in the Hogwarts House quiz that will let us know to which house we truly belong. As a smart, bookish nerd, I have previously been sorted into Ravenclaw … obviously. 😛 It is time to find out if I’m 100% Ravenclaw. *Fingers crossed* Let’s get buzzed!

You’ve made it to Hogwarts, which means you’ve already bought a wand from Ollivander’s. What material is at its core?

Phoenix Feather

Dragon Heartstring

Unicorn Hair

During the end-of-year exams, you notice that one of your classmates was using an enchanted quill. You come top of the class anyway, but they are second. What do you do?

Tell the professor immediately – cheating is wrong, no matter what.

Nothing, but if I hadn’t come top of the class, I’d definitely tell the professor.

Encourage the other student to admit what they’d done to the professor.

Give them a high five for managing to sneak the quill into the exam.

You would be most hurt if a person called you…

You’re locked in a duel with a skilled opponent. They fire an unknown spell at you, and you shout…





It’s your fifth year at Hogwarts, and you’ve just received a Howler from your parents. What for?

Sneaking into the Forbidden Forest at night on a dare.

Getting caught cheating in my Divination O.W.L.

Being put in detention after I was caught in the library after hours.

Nothing! I’d never do anything to warrant a Howler.

Which of these Dumbledore quotations speaks to you?

“Pity the living, and above all, those who live without love.”

“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic.”

“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

Which of these most accurately describes your relationship with your closest friends?

I love surrounding myself with people – the more friends I have, the better!

I have a few very close friends that I would trust with my life.

I tend to be wary around new people, so don’t make new friends often.

I find myself becoming friends with people who can help me to succeed.

My ability to absorb new information.

My ability to make new friends.

My ability to get what I want.

The first Quidditch match of the season is approaching, and you can’t wait to get involved. What role are you playing?

Seeker. I want the glory!

Chaser. I liked to be involved, and work as part of the team.

Beater. I like having all that power.

I’ll be in the crowd, make sure supporter morale is high!

You’re allowed a pet at Hogwarts: an owl, a cat, or a toad. Which do you bring?

Which path do you intend to follow after leaving Hogwarts?

I’d join the Ministry – I want to make a difference in the world.

I think I’d travel for a while before committing to a career.

I’d settle down and start a family as soon as possible!

I’d continue to work hard in order to achieve as much success as possible.

And finally: We know that the Sorting Hat takes into account your preferences. So which Hogwarts house do you feel you identify with most closely?





The Verdict

You Are 41% Ravenclaw, 26% Gryffindor, 19% Hufflepuff, and 14% Slytherin!

You believe above all in the importance of wisdom, which is why you undoubtedly belong in Ravenclaw, but your sense of adventure means you may also have an affinity for Gryffindor house. You are a thrill-seeker – you love to travel and there’s nothing more exciting to you than new experiences – and believe that adventure is essential in the pursuit of knowledge. You are brave, but would never intentionally put yourself in danger, placing you firmly in Ravenclaw. Your slight compatibility with Hufflepuff house suggests a deep love and appreciation for those close to you, which you may keep hidden for fear of being hurt.

    Love this quiz! 🙂 It’s really accurate!

    You Are 39% Ravenclaw, 23% Hufflepuff, 20% Slytherin, and 18% Gryffindor!

    You definitely belong in Ravenclaw, but you have a kindness that sets you apart from most. While some Ravenclaws can be seen as slightly haughty or intimidating, your Hufflepuff side means you are more approachable, and therefore have an easier time making friends. Despite your softness, you find it easy to detach yourself from emotional situations and give objective viewpoints, making you the perfect person to go to for advice.

    Your slight compatibility with Slytherin house suggests a determination to succeed, though not at the expense of traits from your more dominant houses.

    Thanks for sharing! <3

  2. Ah I’m a sucker for these kinds of quizzes myself! I took this one a few months back and was about equal parts Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. Third was Gryffindor, which surprised me a bit, because I thought it would be Slytherin third, but ok 🙂 I’m a proud Ravenpuff!
