About This Quiz

In the magical world of Harry Potter, at the magic school known as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, there are four houses that incoming students are sorted into. Based on the person's personality, traits, and morals, the Sorting Hat places the students into the houses that are most in line with their belies, except for a few who have asked to be put into specific houses.

The four houses are Gryffindor, where the courageous and daring are placed, Ravenclaw, where the intelligent and creative are sorted, Hufflepuff, where the hard working and loyal are found, and Slytherin, where the cunning and the resourceful are placed. 

Is there something about the Hufflepuff's loyalty that gets under your skin, or are you sickened by the know-it-alls who belong to Ravenclaw? Do you loathe the fact that Gryffindors are the family favorites or do you secretly dislike the Slytherins because they think that they are better than everyone else?

We all know which house we would be sorted into and which one our friends would come from, but do you know which of the four houses you should avoid? Well if you don't or if you're not sure, then you should take this quiz to find out which one it is?
