    That's the beauty of it, Hufflepuff takes "the rest", so if you don't fit you end up there.

    I've always related to Slytherin the most.

    -They have a very personal outlook
    -They stick together and look out for each other, and help each other get ahead
    -They play to win
    -They are success driven
    -They are not afraid of their opinions

    Etc. Pottermore is really good for being sorted!

    I couldn't help but noticing that Rowling picked up on some high school clique stereotypes. At least in the first 2 books/films that was somehow the case.

    Gryffindor - The jocks
    Slytherin - The bullies
    Ravenclaw - The nerds/geeks
    Hufflepuff - the nice guys/girls

    I always scored somewhere between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw.

    Gryffindor or Ravenclaw, I suppose, but can we play Lord of the Rings now?

    I see you as a Ravenclaw... because you have a way of kind of standing aloof, or at least apart, from the big issues of the day in a way I empathize with.

    I always felt like the Slytherins got kind of a bad rap. I mean, if everyone in that house was evil, why does it even still exist at that school? Do the members give the biggest donations or what?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11

    I once took an enormous test of...maybe 450 questions. Somehow, I managed to tie between Ravenclaw and Gryffindor.

    I agree with it, but I think Gryffindor would ultimately be the better place for me. Harry was an equal fit for both Gryffindor and Slytherin, so as long as choosing is fair game, I'd be safe.

    I think i'm a HuffleClaw (Ravenpuff?). I don't fit exactly into Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, but I identify with aspects of each.

    i've always identified with ravenclaw. too passive for gryffindor, not ambitious enough for slytherin, not quite nice enough for hufflepuff.

    I agree with both of these sentiments, and it was one of my frustrations while reading the books. I appreciated the widening of perspective and the greater ambiguity as the series went on - and sort of pleasing that the books seemed to develop a more complex morality in concert with Harry and his peers growing up - but, I think by the time we got to the point of being able to see that, the good/evil divide had already been deeply ingrained enough that it was hard to revoke. With that being said, of course all of the founders would have had their flaws, and it would be unreasonable to interpret one as purely evil, when clearly there is a sliding scale with no real determining factors, and that we are left with the possibility of one of Harry's sons being a future Slytherin is promising.

She asked me which I thought I was in. I said Hufflepuff. She immediately protested and said I most definitely seemed like I belonged to Ravenclaw. I said Hufflepuff's ethic seemed more like me, to which she replied that, while not specifically stated, it is more a less suggested that Huffelpuffs are kind of stupid. So I said I refused to have to choose between ethics and intelligence, and it never was decided.
    I personally am biased towards non-stereotypical examples of House affiliation. It pleases me to see someone with an outwardly-visible trait of intellect who affiliates with Hufflepuff. I think Hufflepuff was certainly sterotyped in that realm, anyway. Since when have being just, fair, and loyal been correlated with stupidity? That used to be the stuff of philosophers. I think again we tend to see the Potterverse through impulsive young Gryffindor eyes.
