HP sorting and character meme  

Harry Potter Sorting

I took a couple of the lamer HP sorting quizzes earlier today. These weren't the lamest of the lame--you know, the ones that ask which animal you like better, what your favorite Hogwarts class is, which movie you like better, etc.--but were still kind of cheesy. They asked stuff like, "If you found a wallet on the street with no ID and a little bit of money, what would you do?" And then the answers were all pretty much things I wouldn't really do, so I had to pick the least bad choice. (Something is dreadfully wrong with "least bad," but I can't be arsed to figure out just what that is.)

The lame quizzes kept sticking me in Hufflepuff. I'm pretty sure I'm no Hufflepuff. I have no problem with Hufflepuff. I just don't think I am a Hufflepuff. I'm way too stubborn, independent minded, and analytical for Hufflepuff. If anything, I think I'm more of a Slytherin than a Hufflepuff. Do you think I should keep ending every sentence in this paragraph with Hufflepuff?

Then I took this test that's actually for scientific research. I suspect they put a Harry Potter Sorting spin on it to get people to spend time being guinea pigs for them. It had over 100 statements, and you had to rate each statement on a scale from 1 to 9, where 1 indicates that the statement is extremely uncharacteristic for you and 9 indicates that it's extremely characteristic for you. So, very comprehensive and scientific. Me likey.

The results?

Gryffindor: 98% compatibility
Ravenclaw: 89% compatibility
Hufflepuff: 90% compatibility
Slytherin: 29% compatibility

So mainly, I'm not a Slytherin. I'm a bit surprised, though, that Gryffindor came out on top. I really thought Ravenclaw might win out. Not that I was "pushing" Ravenclaw (OMG SQUIB!)--nothing of the sort. But I was just kind of shocked that Gryffindor had such a strong result. Also, I am a bit surprised at the low compatibility with Slytherin, because I can be pretty damn ruthless at times.

Well, cool. Unless someone can suggest a better quiz, I declare myself a Gryffindor.

That's the one I took to finally sort myself into Gryffindor. I got like 68 Gryffindor, 67 Ravenclaw, 64 Hufflepuff, and 51 Slythering. In other words, really close.

It's funny how your answers are all clustered around the 60s and mine are clustered around the 80s and 90s. I wonder why that happens. Maybe I put a lot of extreme answers (1-3, 7-9) and you were more in the middle?

Yeah, I'm indecisive. Which is probably why I have a hard time getting sorted into any house. The term I generally used to describe myself is an Exploding Hat.

That was interesting. I got 79 Hufflepuff and 77 Ravenclaw, and those are precisely the two houses I'd sort myself into, and I'm never sure which one either.

Interesting. It says I'm Hufflepuff. 85% Hufflepuff, 75% Gryffindor, 73% Ravenclaw, and 29% Slytherin.
