Harry Potter: Which Hogwarts House Am I? — 10 Best Online Quizzes To Get Sorted
Does thinking about your Harry Potter Hogwarts House give you an identity crisis? These are the best quizzes to tell you where you belong.
Many online sorting quizzes are pretty bad. They may ask you what your "best trait" is while only listing brave, cunning, loyal, or witty. Another popular example of a bad quiz question would be what the player's favorite color is between red, yellow, blue, and green. These kinds of quizzes usually aren't that fun because people will always try to get what they want. They will pick their answers based on whether or not they want to be a Gryffindor more so than if their favorite color is actually red.
These quizzes leave for some pretty disingenuous responses. Of course, the sorting hat takes into account which house you want to be in, but it's always way more fun to get sorted based on your personality as well. There is so much more to each house than those core traits and quizzes that really make you question which answer falls under which house is the best kind. Here are some of the best sorting hat quizzes from Harry Potter found online.
This quiz on Time resembles that of a personality quiz like the MBTI®. It has players rate each statement on a scale from one to seven, one being strongly disagreed and 7 strongly agree. This quiz is 4 pages long with 7 questions on each page and calculates based on your responses. It focuses more on your inner personality and morals rather than on the things you like. For example, it may ask "I often check my work over repeatedly to find any mistakes." While this question could be inferred as a Ravenclaw directed question, the amount you rate it on your scale will have an in pact on your ending score.
This article was written by Beth Aderhold. The quiz is simple and only two questions made by Jack Finan, a school psychologist. Differing combinations of the responses make up the different house results. Pretty much the theory is, is that a player doesn't need a number of questions to discover which house they are but rather only two questions to uncover their morality. So depending on which combination of answers you chose, picks a house for you.
This sorting hat quiz will take players back to when they were 11 years old. Players would just be starting the 6th grade, the first year of middle school, and would be starting a whole new adventure.
This quiz tries to remind players of what they were like when they were that age so that they could be sorted when Harry, Ron, and Hermione were. The quiz will ask questions like how you felt about relationships, what you were most embarrassed by, and what got you through it all.
The quiz over at Women has some elements of the kinds of quizzes that typically go unfavored by fans, however, add more questions to make everything a bit more dynamic. They may ask a question with only two answers instead of four like normal to narrow down which house the player would fit into better. They ask in-universe questions and about muggle life as well. And while it does pose the "what's your favorite color" question, it still is an extremely fun and quick quiz that will make you think.
Like the last entry on this list, this quiz on Playbuzz also has a couple of questions that are more in line with the kinds of quizzes that aren't so great. But what makes this one unique is that it asks a few questions about what the player would like to do in their life, and how they want to spend it. It asks about what the players like to do in their free time and what they personally find exciting. The best way to play this quiz is to simply not overthink it and answer honestly.
So apparently this quiz was originally on another site called the Almighty Guru, but that sight has since been down and all that seems to remain of it is this quiz that someone used for their wedding invitations. Either way, it makes for a suburb quiz. Some of the questions are a little silly due to the fact that they try to be "relevant to the times," but most of them are deep and once again question the player's morality. There are multiple answers per question and it never really seems clear as to which answer will lead to which house.
The results of this test give players percentages to show them what percent of each house they are and list the official names of the Hogwarts founders. The questions are straight to the point and often not obvious as to which answer belongs to which house.
Answering the questions to this quiz honestly will probably get you the house you most associate with or let you know if maybe another house is close behind.
This test was made by Buzzfeed but became an interactive video through Eko. The test is fun and also doesn't ask obvious questions but rather asks in lore opinions, like which treat the player would have from the train trolley. The test is pretty short and the video is only eight minutes long. By the end of the quiz, the player will find out what their results are. It is totally simple and visually entertaining.
This Buzzfeed quiz gives players percentages of what they are in each house, sometimes they may even result in a tie. The quiz is fun and thought-provoking and is probably the best sorting hat quiz on the internet after our number one entry. Players may learn that they are much closer to being another house than they thought or may even be a combination of houses, like a Syltherdor or a Ravenpuff.
The last entry on this list goes to the best quiz that is currently on the internet and that is the ever famous quiz on Pottermore. Players will need an account to access this quiz but it is the most spot-on quiz on the internet and will take players on a magical journey as they discover which house they best align with. The quiz got a makeover a few years ago which left many fans worried about their changing house, but sometimes the sorting hat seems to know us better than we know ourselves.
