Harry Potter House Quiz

Updated 2023

Ever since Harry Potter first donned the sorting hat in Hogwarts, millions of fans have wondered which of the houses they would be assigned to. Now it's your turn to find out which house you belong to!

The quiz will determine which house statistically matches your personality the closest. Although you might match with more than one house, the final house will suit you the most.

What is the Harry Potter House Quiz?

In the world of Harry Potter, first-year students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are divided into houses on the night of admission, and the specific destination is determined by the sorting hat. Houses are not just a collection of students with common characteristics, but more of a way of study, life, and personal growth. Therefore, the sorting ceremony is particularly important to students.

Why does my test result show more than one house?

Dear wizard, although the sorting hat has assigned houses to thousands of students, the process is challenging. Especially when faced with a wizard with such great potential like you, this decision can get really tough. If your results show more than one house, you should mainly refer to the house with the largest percentage. However, bear in mind that you may have some traits more suitable to other houses.

Are the houses completely opposed to each other?

No. The biggest difference between the four houses is that the founders have different enrollment criteria. Only the founder of Slytherin disagreed with the other three on whether to recruit Muggle students. Gryffindor and Slytherin have long had a rivalry, but that does not mean the Houses are at odds with each other. Regardless of their destination, young wizards will be proud of the house they belong to and be understanding of other houses.

Detailed explanation of each house in Harry Potter


“Courage, chivalry, and determination”

“We’ll teach all those with brave deeds to their name.” — Godric Gryffindor

Gryffindor was founded by Godric Gryffindor. It corresponds to the fire element among the four elements. The symbolic animal is a lion, and the representative colors are red and gold. Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and other outstanding wizards all graduated here. When selecting students, Gryffindor pays attention to whether they are characterized by courage, friendship, and loyalty. This makes most wizards from Gryffindor fearless and daring to fight, but some students will even reach the point of recklessness.

You can always see the figure of resistance in you. You dare to question power and resist oppression, you can quickly accept new things, you are willing to sacrifice for your own beliefs, and you can keep fighting when facing difficulties. You are frank and straightforward, have a clear understanding of what you like and hate, have kind thoughts, and are kind and friendly. You do your best for the people you care about, even if that hurts you. You have the spirit of a knight and will show your talents in Gryffindor.


“Ambitious, cunning, and resourceful”

“We’ll teach just those whose ancestry’s purest.” — Said Slytherin

Slytherin was founded by Salazar Slytherin and corresponds to the water element among the four elements. The symbolic animal is a snake, and the representative colors are green and silver. Severus Snape, Horace Slughorn, Draco Malfoy, Tom Riddle, and other outstanding wizards all graduated here. When selecting students, pure blood is one of the factors for Slytherin selection, but it is not the only criterion. Muggle-born Slytherin students do exist, but they are quite rare. Wizards who graduate from Slytherin tend to be ambitious, determined, and strong leaders. In addition to great wizards, most of the dark wizards also came from this house.

The first impression you make on others is often that of presence, courtesy, elegance, and charm. Your heart will always guide your way, and you firmly believe in the importance of strength. Nothing can distract you from achieving your goals because you think deeply and make plans meticulously until you succeed. In Slytherin, you will step closer to your goals and be more focused on achieving them.


“Wisdom, cleverness, and wit”

“We’ll teach those whose intelligence is surest.” — Rowena Ravenclaw

Ravenclaw was founded by Rowena Ravenclaw and corresponds to the wind element among the four elements. The symbolic animal is the eagle, and the representative colors are blue and bronze. Luna Lovegood, Cho Chang, Sybill Trelawney, Filius Flitwick, and other outstanding wizards all graduated here. When selecting students, Ravenclaw tends to choose those who are talented and love learning, especially in terms of academics. Therefore, Ravenclaw is characterized by strong competitiveness. In addition, Ravenclaw is an ideal place for those “weird” students who are independent and have an outstanding temperament.

You are almost synonymous with “thinking” and “logic.” You are good at rational thinking, willing to explore the unknown, full of longing for the future, and view things around you in your own way. Also, you will never do what others want you to do. IQ is not the only criterion for judging whether a person is smart. The most important factor is how you analyze problems, and you are the type of wizard who has powerful methods to overcome obstacles. As a person of knowledge, you will grow more in Ravenclaw.


“Patience, dedication, and loyalty”

“We’ll teach the lot and treat them just the same.” — Helga Hufflepuff

Hufflepuff was founded by Helga Hufflepuff and corresponds to the earth element among the four elements. The symbolic animal is the badger, and the representative colors are black and yellow. Newt Scamander, Pomona Sprout, Cedric Diggory, Hannah Abbott, and other outstanding wizards all graduated here. When selecting students, Hufflepuff is very tolerant. It not only focuses on the students' magical talents but also on their hard work, dedication, and loyalty. As a result, Hufflepuff rarely competes with other houses. The house's gentle attitude and silent dedication do not mean that the students it recruits lack talent. In fact, Hufflepuff has bred many great wizards, and it is also the house that produces the fewest dark wizards.

Kindness and warmth are the first impressions you bring to others. Also, your pure heart and friendly attitude help you make friends and gain a reputation. You are not willing to be a Mr. or Ms. Nobody, you have clear and ambitious objectives, and you love people truly. One of your best traits is your initiative to pursue your dreams, but you are not keen on chasing fame and fortune. At Hufflepuff, you will have more opportunities to learn and become the person you want to be.
