Walking You Through My Pottermore Sorting!

Hey, popcorns!

(shoutout to the OG popcorn, you know who you are)

Today I’m bringing you a bit of a unique post.

Every book lover knows about Harry Potter and all of us book bloggers have definitely taken the PottermoreΒ tests before!

The last time I took them has to be at least several months ago when we went to Universal Studios with cousins, but I’m going to be taking ALL of them again!

That means the House Sorting, Patronus, and Wand! I was going to take the Ilvermorny one but apparently they removed it. 😦

Let’s get to it!

First, I have to make a fake account: I ended up using a random email and my name’s officiallyΒ bibbity bobbity booΒ πŸ˜‰

1. Hogwarts House

First of all, I know I’m a Gryffindor. But I’m curious to see what the Hat will see in me!

(while I’m taking the test, I’m noticing that I’m picking a lot of Ravenclaw answers, so…) (also, didn’t it use to be much longer?!)

I have to say, I’m… disappointed. Ravenclaws are great and all, but I’m actually the least Ravenclaw I could be!

*is salty*

First of all, your Hogwarts House is what traits you VALUE the most. Gryffindors value standing up to injustice and taking risks. Ravenclaws value creativity and the power of knowledge. Hufflepuffs value being loyal and working hard and honest to get places in life. And Slytherins value being successful and having a drive to accomplish great things.

I know what I value the most, and I’m pretty much 60% Gryffindor, 30% Hufflepuff, and 10% Ravenclaw+Slytherin.

I think I’m also at my most Gryffindor I’ve ever been! I used to be a proud Hufflepuff and a not-so-patriotic Gryffindor and while I still think Hufflepuffs are the best, I know I’m a Gryffindor.

Wow, the Sorting Hat’s wrong on this one.

2. Patronus

The last time I did it I got a dolphin, which definitely matches my personality! I consider it to be my Patronus even now.

I’ve also heard of a lot of people saying that their Patronus was nothing like their personality, so I’m curious to see what it’ll give me this time!

Hmm, I can see why I got this one! Otters are curious and social, which I guess I am. I still think a dolphin is my true Patronus though πŸ˜‰

3. Wand

I can’t remember my wand from last time so I’m going into this one with absolutely no expectations!

Wow, this one actually makes sense! Here’s what Pottermore says about beech wands, taken straight from the website:

The true match for a beech wand will be, if young, wise beyond his or her years, and if full-grown, rich in understanding and experience. Beech wands perform very weakly for the narrow-minded and intolerant.

To be honest, that sounds a lot like me. Not to brag XD but I would say I know a lot about the world, and I’m definitelyΒ veryΒ open-minded and tolerant.

For the unicorn hair, it says:

If your wand is unicorn hair, this core, according toΒ Ollivander’s notes, β€˜generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. They are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts.

Hey, that sounds nice! I do think that it would be practically impossible to turn me to the Dark Arts and I’m happy to say I share a wand core with Ron, Cedric, and Neville- some of the most loyal, good-hearted folks in the series.

Obviously the wand length- 10″- is on the shorter side because… I’m very short πŸ˜‰

As to the ‘unbending flexibility’, here’s what good ol’ Ollivander has to say about that:

Wand flexibility or rigidity denotes the degree of adaptability and willingness to change possessed by the wand-and-owner pair – although, again, this factor ought not to be considered separately from the wand wood, core and length, nor of the owner’s life experience and style of magic, all of which will combine to make the wand in question unique.

That’s really odd since beech is apparently open-minded and now my wand flexibility shows that I’m not open to change?

OH. I GET IT. Actually, this is pretty darn right! I’m extremely tolerant of people from different faiths, races, sexualities, and gender identities (wand wood), I have strong views against what I’d consider ‘evil’, like in politics (wand hair), I am very very into fighting for what’s right (house- Gryffindor, not Ravenclaw!) BUT my views are pretty much set in stone.

I’ve done extensive research to decide what I believe in regarding politics, toleration, and more, and I highly highly doubt that you’ll be able to change my mind.

So this does make sense. At least my wand fits my personality lol.


And that’s a wrap! This was kind of fun to do, but I wasn’t happy with my House sorting at all. There were, like, seven questions- that’s definitely not enough to tell! Plus- just because I love books doesn’t mean I’m a Ravenclaw.

If Hermione took this crappy test, she would’ve gotten Ravenclaw but we all know she’s a true Gryffindor. Just like me. πŸ™„

Also, I just wanted to add a disclaimer; I love the Harry Potter books, but I’ve officially canceled JKR. No one in the fandom likes her anymore, and rightfully so.

Have you taken the Pottermore tests before? What’s your Hogwarts House? Do you know your Patronus and Wand? Were the tests accurate for you?

  1. I basically used to reside in Pottermore πŸ˜‚ but that was really a while agoπŸ˜› But now you’ve really made me want to retake the tests again!! I always take the House Sorting tests on pretty much everyy website just to double checkπŸ˜…πŸ˜‚
    And also! Wow I really forgot that you could have an otter as a patronus too! COOL xx

    1. Omg I remember when I used to be obsessed with it a while ago, too! You should retake it and see if it’s accurate πŸ˜‰
      I DID THAT TOO- I’ve taken House tests SO many times lol. The thing is, if you even mention that you like to read, the fanmade tests usually place you in Ravenclaw XD. That’s why I don’t really trust them.
      Yeah you can! Thanks for commenting, Brin ❀


      1. Haha yess. I just did, right after I read your post! It was really exciting and I’ve decided to take your inspiration and do a post and link back! 🀩😁❀

        And whoa! Okaay I really didn’t notice that in the other quizzes but I’m sure that’s very true because I’ve got weird answers too! πŸ˜›

  2. I loved this post!! I’ve taken the pottermore quizzes like 8 times I think now, and there was a phase where I was obsessed with them. I’m a very proud Slytherin and I’m a Ravenclaw second! My patronus is almost always a winged creature and I used to get white swans and black swans a lot initially, but the two latest ones I got were a Hyena which was interesting and a Hippogriff.
    Also I completely agree with cancelling J.K. Rowling. It’s really sad it had to come to this because now whenever I read the books or watch the movies, there’s that thought of her being a TERF at the back of my head.

    1. Thanks Arshia!! Omg same- I’ve taken them several times, but probably not eight πŸ˜‰ Yay! Slytherclaws rock! ❀ Haha Hippogriff sounds like a really fun Patronus! πŸ™‚
      It's sad that we have to cancel her, but at least we don't need to cancel the books XD. I'm still going to love them with all my heart- but JKR has really let us all down. 😦


  3. yes definitely cancelled JKR, I honestly can’t believe her at times. This is a case of support the art, not the artist !!
    That is interesting that you least relate to Ravenclaw as I least relate to Gryffindor (I’m ravenclaw just to make that clear) so we are kind of opposite there, haha!! Even though I have got every house on the pottermore quiz so it really isn’t reliable on there !!
    An otter Patronus is so cute !! The same as Hermione !! My sister is obsessed with otters as well. When I’ve done the quiz, I’ve gotten a vulture (should I be worried?) and a magpie. haha!!
    It is cool that you found that the wand fitted your personality best !!
    This was a fun post, I loved reading it !! ❀

    1. I can’t believe that she used to be my idol and now… 😦 it’s just really sad, tbh.
      I love Ravenclaws, don’t get me wrong πŸ˜… but I think I’m not a Ravenclaw? I feel like I’m a lot like Hermione, but more Hufflepuff and less Ravenclaw haha. It’s more about what traits you value, you know? πŸ˜„ Omg same- I’ve actually gotten every house but Ravenclaw so now I’ve got the whole collection!! XD
      Yeah, it’s the same as Hermione! Otters are adorable but dolphins are even better πŸ˜‰ (omg you got a vulture?! but that’s nothing like you! i’d peg you for… like, definitely a mammal/bird. a raven or a bluebird? IDK but raven boys haha)
      I agree! Thanks so much angel ❀

      1. It is upsetting!! She let us all down.
        Yeah like every house has their own amazing qualities for sure. It is just what you value like you said!! Hermione is an icon!! Hhaha it is satisfying to have the whole collection!! I can never remember what I got on the American house system from fantastic beast though because I’ve only done that quiz once.
        haha dolphins are awesome !!
        I know I couldn’t believe it !! Yes I’ve gotten birds a lot and I like birds. haha yesss ravens are cool, just like TRB !! πŸ˜‰

    wAIT THEY DELETED THE ILVERMORNY SORTING??!?!! WHAT?!!?? WHYYYYYY!?!?!!?!?!? Seriously tho I wanted to learn more but uh just pretend it doesn’t exist ok.
    ANYWAY YES THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER AMAZING POST (and can I just say you are very much like Hermione! Being sorted into ravenclaw annnnd the otter it just confirms it)

    1. exactly :/ literally no one cares about you not having diversity in the 1990s- (and that’s coming from me, queen of calling ppl out on not having diversity) just stop pretending like characters are something they aren’t!
      HAHAH that’s so cute πŸ₯Ί (I will do it!!)
      YES- THEY DID! When they switched from Pottermore to Wizarding World, they took away the Ilvermorny sorting because apparently it wasn’t received well πŸ‘€ (tea). HAHA IKR.
      THANK YOU VERY MUCH! yes that’s the best thing anyone has said to me all day πŸ₯Ί

  7. I’ve never taken the official Pottermore quiz because I don’t want to go through the hassle of signing up, but I took some knockoff ones with the same questions. It confirmed my suspicions that I was a Slytherin! Something I feel pretty good about, tbh.
    I’m not super into Harry Potter anymore (I still like the books though), but they still were an important part of my life and it IS fun to occasionally dip back into the story world.

    (I don’t have any idea what my patronus is. I’d like to think it’d be something like a raven or a fox. But who knows.)

    I’ll be honest, I have NO idea what’s up with JK Rowling. I guess her life is none of my business, but her opinions are just πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ so bad.

    (Ravenclaw and Gryffindor are pretty awesome, so high-five!)

    1. Lol it’s pretty easy but I get that πŸ˜‰ Yay, Slytherins rock!! ❀
      Haha I'd say I'm still into it but not as much as I used to be?


  8. I’m 96% Hufflepuff and 4% Ravenclaw, and I think I totally agree to be honest! πŸ’“ I love this Aditi, all book bloggers have definitely read HP πŸ˜‚ I don’t think you can be one if you haven’t! So sorry the house test was wrong for you, that sucks! I literally just heard of JKR being a TERF and oh my gosh that is awful! Thank you so much for the lovely post again Aditi πŸ’•

    1. Hahaha that’s awesome! πŸ˜€ I know right πŸ˜‰ it’s basically a prerequisite XD. 😦 Yeah we do NOT stan TERFs haha. Aw thank you!!


  9. YES AGREED, I like to think I’m a Gryffinpuff (I got Gryffindor in the ye old days of pottermore but all of my friends got Hufflepuff *sigh). I think my patronous was some kind of dog which yes checks out I literally have dog posters in my roon

  10. So I adore HP but I’ve actually somehow never used Pottermore. I have no idea how. I haven’t even ever done a house test which is pretty ridiculous. I love your patronus, otters are awesome. I’ve seen giant ones before and tiny ones and they’re always so, so sweet to watch!! Although apparently the smallest ones I’ve seen (Asian Short Claw) can bite through bone which is pretty scary. Anyway I still think they’re awesome and look incredibly sweet. Im sorry that you didn’t get the right house …maybe it was the fake name? Bibbity is a Ravenclaw, you’re a Gryffindor.

    1. Omg I feel you! They were better before being moved to Wizarding World 😦 but you should still take it haha I really liked my wand result!

  12. I take house tests all the time to make sure that I’m still in the house I want to be in. I think I’m a Gryffindor(twinsπŸ˜‚β€οΈ) but, whenever I take tests I get practically every house one time or another. Hehe, maybe I’ll be like Harry and the hat will just let me choose πŸ˜‚
    Love this post and I need to retake the Pottermore sorting house quiz.
