About This Quiz

You don't have to be a huge Harry Potter fan to know the Hogwarts houses, and two of the most popular are known to be sworn enemies: Gryffindor and Slytherin. Founded by Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin respectively, the two houses stand for very different things.  

Gryffindors are known to be extremely brave and loyal. They are daring, chivalrous and possess nerve like no one else. Slytherin on the other hand, are a cunning bunch. They value ambition, status and are big believers in self-preservation. But how much of each house are you? What percentage of Slytherin and Gryffindor are you?

Are you 100% Gryffindor? Is there no doubt that you belong in the bravest house in Hogwarts? Or do you have a little bit of Slytherin in you? Are you 50% Gryffindor and 50% Slytherin? Are the warring houses equally balanced in you? Or are you way more Slytherin and a tiny bit Gryffindor? We want to ask you a few questions that'll allow us to guess what percentage of each you are.

So, if you want to find out if you're 75% Slytherin and 25% Gryffindor, or some other combination, go ahead and start this quiz.
