Pick a house, any house—well, I guess it’s more complex than that as the Sorting Hat is ultimately the one who makes this decision for you. When it comes down to placing you in the house that you’ll be in for the next eight years, the Sorting Hat has a lot to consider. Everything from your favorite color to how you would help those in need, actually. All of these things help to construct your personality and also piece together if you should be in the honorable Gryffindor, the resourceful Slytherin, the knowledgeable Ravenclaw, or the friendly Hufflepuff.
Think really hard about what you decisions will be as some of the questions may be more difficult than the others, but these were some of the things the Sorting Hat considered when peering into the lives of people like Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, Cedric Diggery, and Luna Lovegood. Which house do you think you belong in, and which house do you actually belong in is the question? Will your intuition match up with the actual answer? You might be surprised with the results you get. Take our quiz and find out which house the Sorting Hat would place you into.
