Way back when, I of course wanted to be in Gryffindor. The house. Harry's house. Hey, I was in 3rd, 4th grade, frantically reading books 1-3 and eagerly awaiting book 4.
But, after a while, I ascribed to Ravenclaw. Smart folks, them Ravenclaws, and I felt I wasn't going with the popular house.
However, after careful reflection, I definitely liked Gryffindor and felt it was my house. I very much like the idea of bravery, standing up for what you believe in even if opposed, holding oneself accountable, following through, having guts, etc. I felt Gryffindor was where I belonged.
Now, what Pottermore provides is just another one of many House-tests online. Some are highly inaccurate, some are done by psychologists with a Myers-Briggs test angle in determining your house (though from what I've seen temperament has nothing to do with it). What I wasn't expecting was the test that JK came up with for the Sorting Hat.
The test has been getting some criticisms, depending on if you like your house or not. I almost don't feel JK should have decided unless consulting with a psychologist, but oh well. Some of the questions/choices were quite weird.
In the end I got sorted into Ravenclaw! I can live with that. After reading the welcome letter, Ravenclaws are clever and witty, more than the average Gryffindor, and eccentric, to which I ascribe, so I am quite content with my house placement. I just might start to identify with it again like I used to.
