Get to Know Us: Our Hogwarts Houses

Updated: Jan 18, 2021

The single greatest question a Harry Potter fan must ask themselves, Which Hogwarts house am I in? After wondering this same thing, and making some guesses, we took the official Wizarding World quizzes to discover our houses, and find our wands and patronuses!

Our Hogwarts Houses

Taylor: Hufflepuff

Growing up, I always wanted to be in Gryffindor. The older I got, the more I felt like I could be a Ravenclaw aswell, because I became more bookish, and love to learn. That being said, I felt as though I belonged in either of those two houses based off of my personality and personal preference.

Hufflepuff is known to value hard work, and loyalty above all else. Hufflepuffs usually enjoy making others happy, and tend to be relatively patient. You stick up for what's right, and value honesty. If you are the kind of person who loves changing into comfy clothes, give people your gum instead of telling them that it was your last piece, and avoid spoiling your friends favorite show at all costs, you might find yourself sorted into Hufflepuff.

When I found out I was a Hufflepuff, I was FLOORED! I was pretty disappointed, because I felt no connection to the Hufflepuff house when I read the books, and really had my heart set on either Gryffindor, or Ravenclaw. However, I was happy that I was not a Slytherin. After learning more about Hufflepuff, I began to see a slight resemblance to my personality, but not enough for it to be my house. (Jessica, the one editing this, wants to make it known that she does NOT agree, and thinks Hufflepuff deserves much more credit.)


Jessica: Ravenclaw

Going into this quiz, I was uncertain of my placement. I could easily see myself fitting into either the Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff houses. Although, I am not disappointed with my results, because Ravenclaw has always been a favorite.

Ravenclaw is known to value wisdom and knowledge. They are considered intelligent, clever, and witty. You like to plan ahead and are likely an expert at packing suitcases. If you are the person who always ends up doing most of the work in a group project, are known as a bookworm, and constantly correct peoples grammar in everyday conversation, then Ravenclaw is the house for you!

Ravenclaw seems like a great fit for me, and matches my personality very well. I enjoy reading, learning, and extensively overthinking things. All of the facts above suit me rather well, so I would say that the quiz was very accurate, and I am proud to be a Ravenclaw!


Our Wands

Taylor: Vine Wood with a Unicorn Hair Core

I had no clue what the wands meant, or really anything about them, so there was a lot of research involved in this part.

Unicorn Hair wands are said to be the most consistent, and remain with their original owner. They are also said to be the hardest to turn to the Dark Arts. Vine Wood is the 5th most popular wood, and normally an indicator of a person with hidden depths who seeks a greater purpose.

I don’t really see myself turning to the Dark Arts, so that seems fairly accurate. Regarding seeking a greater purpose, I guess I do, but maybe some time in the future when I have a life. Overall, this wand could fit me, but I don’t think it’s the perfect match.


Jessica: Rowan Wood with a Unicorn Hair Core

I wasn’t sure what to expect taking this quiz, and was unsure of what my results meant, and had to do some internet exploration to find the meaning behind it all. Here is what I gathered;

As stated previously, Unicorn Hair wands are said to be the most consistent, and remain with their original owner. They are also said to be the hardest to turn to the Dark Arts. Rowan Wood is the 9th most popular wood, and is said to be the most protective. It is best placed with the pure-hearted, because there is no record of a dark witch or wizard ever owning a Rowan Wood wand.

I would say that this wand suits my personality rather well. I am very protective of my family and friends, and have a hard time seeing myself turn to the dark arts. Loyalty is a trait that I value in both a person and a wand, so I couldn’t be happier with my results!


Our Patronuses

Taylor: Hummingbird

I had no clue what to expect for my patronus, and honestly didn’t know what the options were. I don’t see anything wrong with a Hummingbird, although I was hoping for something a little cooler.

After some research, we discovered that the most common house for the Hummingbird Patronus is Hufflepuff. People with this patronus are usually cheerful and enjoy making others laugh. They are more sensitive than they let on, and are easily influenced by others.

The quiz was rather accurate for me, and I can see the Hummingbird being my patronus. It didn’t fit me as perfectly as I had hoped. Although, the more I thought about it, the more I made peace with the fact, and agreed that it fits me pretty well.


Jessica: Mole

I’m going to be honest, I was a bit disappointed. No offense to any mole-loving individuals, but I was hoping for something a little more… exciting. I wasn’t really sure what to expect going into the quiz, but I will say I was definitely surprised by the results.

People with the Mole patronus are said to be determined individuals who give their all in everything they do. They are calculating, and like to make the right choice every time. Normally considered intelligent and having the qualities of being a leader, but not entirely comfortable in the role.

The more I researched about this patronus, the more interesting and accurate it seemed. Not only was I caught off guard by the patronus itself, but by the truth of the statements above. I would say that the Patronus quiz was very accurate with my results.
