Your result for The Sorting Hat: A Comprehensive Harry Potter Personality Assessment [Test/Quiz]...


55% Ravenclaw, 50% Hufflepuff, 50% Slytherin and 41% Gryffindor!


Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,

if you've a ready mind,

Where those of wit and learning,

Will always find their kind;

         The cardinal traits of Ravenclaw are intellect, wit and openness to experience. They are the most introverted house of the four. Ravenclaws are more likely to prefer small gatherings of like-minded individuals and require recooperation after stressful social interaction. These individuals are intuitive creatures, the quintessential researchers. They lack the stubborn, strict, and rule-abiding qualities that would inhibit intellectual growth—one can't be too set in their ways if they are to be open to exploring new ideas and paths of thought.In contrast to Slytherin and Gryffindor, Ravenclaws in general are much more emotionally stable. Their reactions seem dampened compared to the sometimes dramatic responses of the other houses—they're much less likely to get offended, they're more open to criticism, not particularly argumentative and interested in hearing different points of view. They can at times seem to be less interested in people and more interested in their own inner world, and appear to be disconnected from the rest of humanity.

          Ambition is secondary to them. Although they may strive to excel in school, knowledge and self-enrichment is the primary goal as opposed to simply wanting good marks. If they do happen to strive for excellence, it is because it fits with their other goals, not out of a desire to be superior or the best. Due to their intuitiveness and willingness to listen, Ravenclaws can be empathetic and make good advisors. They should generally leave leadership roles to people who are more extraverted and who would enjoy them more, however.

Wow. Pretty spot on, I'd say. Mind you, maybe it's like horoscopes and I'd relate in part to every house. ETA: Nope, I just read the other houses and quite frankly, I only WANTED to belong to Ravenclaw or maybe Hufflepuff - I did not like the sound of any of the other houses and they certainly didn't sound like me. So, accurate quiz is accurate.

LOL -  "the quintessential researchers" - may I direct your attention to my extremely accurate Supernatural Timeline and my Complete Catalogue of Clothes :P  

Also, my "openness to experience" has served me VERY well in life - just saying. ;)

Oh, and I love this - "prefer small gatherings of like-minded individuals" - has anyone ever noticed that my flist is titled "Like-minded individuals and communities" ? Like I said, pretty spot on, quiz!

From an flister POV, I'd say it's pretty accurate too. From your posts, you are empathetic, and you give pretty wise advice. The 'openness to criticism' and the 'less likely to get offended' part is also reflected in your LJ, most recently in your replying to a commenter, so yeay for a very near accurate reading of your personality! :)

That makes me happy! I'm very proud of myself if those are the traits that I'm exhibiting to the world! :)

How odd!

I guess I'm not sure what your emotional life is like - but from your storytelling posts, I would put you in Ravenclaw too. I suppose you are more outgoing than I am, so that might mean more Gryffindor.

I seem to be super Ravenclaw. 64% Ravenclaw, 57% Hufflepuff, 40% Slytherin and 39% Gryffindor! Huh.

Some of the questions were odd though. Like "are you good in a crisis?"; I can only remember one instance that I can label a crisis and I was running on 1 and a half hours of sleep at the time so I don't really think I can accurately answer that.

I think it also depends what your definition of "good" is. I mean, I said that I was good in a crisis, because I stay calm - while I'm sure there are other people out there who might argue that I stay TOO calm.

Yeah, I internally freak the fuck out and... well actually, I externally freaked the fuck out that time. But I'm completely useless with no sleep so. In an actual crisis I have no idea what I'd do.

Well, when my sister thought she had appendicitis, I watched TV. When my best friend got foodpoisoning, I researched on the internet to try to figure out if it was the kind that would kill him - then I researched to find out how to help him keep water down so that he didn't die of dehydration...then when he was able to eat again, I lleft him a note and jumped on a train and left town, because I suddenly felt like I needed to get the fuck away from there for a day or so.

Other than those health-related ones, I can't really think of any crises that I've faced.

I think that's handling it well all things considered. Though leaving town seems... drastic. :P

I have a feeling my crisis was only a crisis because I'd had no sleep. Our taxi didn't turn up when we were going to Heathrow for our fieldtrip to India. And like, 4.30am. And I'd booked it. And had had no sleep. So yeah, not great. But all things considered, not aweful either. Everything really bad (my sister, breaking her arm, my sister breaking her leg, me breaking my head open) happened when we were under the age of 8. You're not expected to cope well then. :P

Yeah, I think the problem with me is that it takes me a bit to become aware of my own emotions - so my first reaction to most things is purely intellectual "Food poisoning, ok, this is a first...it seems bad...I'm going to need more information"...meanwhile, I guess a part of me inside was going "oh god oh god, this is bad, what do I do? is he going to be alright? Should we be going to the hospital? oh god oh god"...but that parts not...um, conscious, I guess. It's just working in the background. So, I basically spent the entire week under a lot of stress without really recognizing that I was under a lot of stress.

So, yeah, jumping on a train and leaving town seems drastic...but *shrug*...I guess once the crisis was over, I gave into the whole "fight or flight" instinct that had probably been repressed the whole time...and apparently my reaction was "flight".

And yeah, when you are a kid doesn't count. Case and point: I used an anecdote from my own life in the last demented'verse timestamp. I once gouged part of my heel off when I was a kid - I was fine until I saw the trail of blood, and then, well, I hardly reacted well. :P

Aah makes more sense. I can see me reacting like that.. though maybe not as.. strongly as you. ;)

Haha I cracked my head open on a gravestone when I was about 8ish. It makes a funny anecdote now seeing as the church is opposite my house and as such I had to cross the road. So I did, covered in blood from head to toe, and a guy was driving along. Obviously he slammed on the breaks, cos what he saw was a blonde, 8 year old girl, coming out of a graveyard, covered in blood. I fear I scarred that man for life. :P
