Hogwarts - Harry Potter
Would you do a sorting analysis for me, purrty please?
Ask for more stories about your adventures
Slyth, Gryff, Puff, Gryff
2 Gryff/1 Puff/1 Slyth; adventures is relatively rare, as is The Bold
The fat red toadstools that appear to be talking to each other
The gleaming jet black box with a silver lock and key, marked with a mysterious rune that you know to be the mark of Merlin.
The foaming, frothing, silvery liquid that sparkles as though containing ground diamonds.
Puff; Claw; Slyth; Claw; Slyth; note that the Merlin box is #1 in Claw and Slyth, but only gives points to Slyth
2 Slyth/2 Claw/1 Puff
Gryffinclaw; Gryffinslyth (but Ravenclaw has no good answers/praised and liked constantly vie for #2 in the House); Slytherclaw
So Q3 is evenly split between Gryff/Claw/Slyth
Every area of magic I can
The power to change your appearance at will
Ravenslyth; Slytherclaw; Ravendor
Always Claw, mostly Slyth, 1/3 Gryff (note that in practice, change appearance should be Ravenslyth; centaurs should be Gryffinclaw; learn everything should possibly be plain Claw)
Tell Professor Flitwick that he ought to ask your classmate (and resolve to tell your classmate that if he doesn’t tell the truth, you will).
Attempt to confuse the troll into letting all three of you pass without fighting?
The twisting, leaf-strewn path through woods
An eye at the keyhole of the dark, windowless room in which you are locked
Draw your wand and try to discover the source of the noise?
Agree, and walk away, leaving them to wonder whether you are bluffing?
Gryff; Claw; Gryff; Gryff; Gryff; Gryff
5 Gryff, 1 Claw - note that aside from draw/discover and agree/bluff, every answer you’ve picked is the most popular answer on that question.
Ravendor; Huffledor (should be Ravenpuff); Gryffinclaw
Always Gryff, 2/3 Claw, 1/3 Puff (Gryff and Claw should be switched here)
Huffleclaw; Gryffinslyth; Huffledor
50% Puff/Gryff, 1/3 Slyth and Claw
Overall: Gryff is narrowly 1st over Ravenclaw; Claw is 2nd, Slyth 3rd, Puff last, though Slytherin is still possible quite often (ordinary, sea or merlin, praised or being ignored, change app/every area, tails) and Puff is probably possible but VERY VERY RARE because of the lack of Q34/5 (love, toadstools, stars, white or right, without pulling any other Gryffindor answers would go Puff; pulling a Gryff Q5 would still leave Puff possible but you’d have to have being ignored as the Q3. So, yeah, Puff is technically possible but likely to be super-rare.) If you consider the questions where answer weighting should be different/where Ravenclaw doesn’t have a viable answer, the Gryff-ness and Claw-ness might be a tad closer (Merlin’s box; praised; stars), but I’d stll say Gryffindor wins out.
What you’re doing is super amazingly awesome and I already read through all of it because procrastination. I was put in Slytherin (the super amazingly awesomest house) and my questions/answers were…
1. How would you like to be known? The Great
2. What kind of instrument? The Violin
3. A troll has gone berserk? Student Records-Merlin’s Book-Pox Cure
4. If you could have any power? Read Minds
5. Which road tempts you? Lantern-Lit Alley
6. Forest or river? River
7. Left or right? Left
The most Slytherin possible Sorting you could get! (Well, technically, there are 2 superpowers and 2 cure orderings with more Slytherin weight, but all of these options have Slytherin weight.) Ravenclaw’s in second place, Hufflepuff in third, and there’s zero Gryffindor here.
1, 2, 3, (4), 5, 6, (7) Slyth vs. (3), (6) Puff vs. 4, 7 Claw (although interestingly enough, read minds is the superpower with the most Claw weight, but 25% of Claws pick it vs. 50% of Claws picking change appearance, which is given more Slyth weight. Go figure.) But, yeah, it doesn’t really matter - this is a SUPER-Slyth Sorting.
Also, records/book/cure is the single rarest cure ordering on that option - IIRC, fewer than 4% of people pick it.
1. As a fellow Ravenclaw (who always thought of myself as one and was sorted in Pottermore as such) I think what you’re doing here is cool.
2. Here was my Sorting Survey:
- What I would hate to be called: Ordinary
- The one about which box I would open: The pewter box that only opens for the worthy.
- The berserk troll: Records>Cure>Book.
- What I want to learn at Hogwarts: Everything!
- Peculiar cry/late night street: I would withdraw into the shadows etc. etc.
- Moon or stars: Stars
- Heads or tails: Heads
Wow, this is an odd Sorting - and very close to being Hufflepuff or Slytherin.
4, 5, 7 Claw vs. 1, (3), (4) Slyth vs. 2, (6) Gryff vs. 3, 6, (7) Puff - it’s definitely Claw 1st, Puff 2nd, Slyth 3rd, Gryff last - but tails would definitely have flipped this Slytherin, and moon might have Hatstalled it or flipped it as well. Records-first Sortings are really rare, and are Slytherpuff or Huffleslyth in nature depending on whether they’re cure-last or book-last (records/book/cure is rarest of the options on that question.) (In practice, though over 90% of Ravenclaws answer stars on stars/moon, points are given to Ravenclaw on moon - given that stat, this is Pottermore assigning something that’s blatantly wrong to the House, Luna/lunacy/moon and odd symbolism or no.)
The most Ravenclaw set of answers you could give! All 7 questions have Ravenclaw points.
1, 2, (3), 4, 5, (6), (7) Claw (though in practice, centaurs is actually #3 overall in Ravenclaw - they prefer ghosts and werewolves.) Other Houses: 3 Slytherin, (4), 6 Gryffindor; 7 Puff - meaning that Gryff is 2nd, Slyth is 3rd, Puff last, though there’s really not much of any of them in this Sorting - it’s as purely Ravenclaw as you could get, given the question set.
uh if you have the time to do so and it’s not too much of a bother, i would like to have a 27 question analysis done?
2. I don’t care what people think of me after I’m dead; it’s what they think of me while I’m alive that counts
4. The Great
Claw; Slyth; Gryff; Slyth
2 Slyth/1 Claw/1 Gryff; glory is unusual, so is alive
5. The bubbling pool, in the depths of which something luminous is swirling
6. The Piano
7. The small pewter box, unassuming and plain, with a scratched message upon it that reads ‘I open only for the worthy.’
8. The smooth, thick, richly purple drink that gives off a delicious smell of chocolate and plums.
9. A Crackling Log Fire
Slyth, Claw, Gryff, Puff, Gryff
2 Gryff, 1 of every other House
10. Dragon Pox Cure/Merlin’s Book/Student Records
12. Being Ignored
Gryff primary/Claw secondary; Slytherclaw; Slytherclaw
The cure order is #1 in every House; envied is actually more specific to Slyths in practice (very few Claws pick it, while more Slyths do, and it’s a rather unusual answer - 4th of 6 overall, but something like 3rd in Slyth and 5th in Claw.)
Anyway, all have Claw weight; 2 have Slyth weight; 1 has Gryff weight.
13. Hexes and Jinxes
14. The Power To Change The Past
Slyth; Slytherdor; Huffledor (but should be Ravenpuff in practice - this is Claw’s #2 answer overall!) Hexes/jinxes is extremely rare.
16. Tell Professor Flitwick the truth. If your classmate is prepared to win by cheating, he deserves to be found out. Also, as you are both in the same house, any points he loses will be regained by you, for coming first in his place.
17. Suggest that all three of you should fight (without telling the troll)?
18. The narrow, dark, lantern-lit alley
19. Waking up to find that neither your friends nor your family have any idea who you are.
20. Proceed with caution, keeping one hand on your concealed wand and an eye out for any disturbance?
21. Agree, and ask whether they’d like a free sample of a jinx?
Claw; Slyth; Slyth; Puff; Puff; Slyth
3 Slyth/2 Puff/1 Claw - the Slyth jinxing the Muggle is a rare answer.
All have Puff weight (Huffleslyth, Huffledor - should be Ravenpuff - and Slytherpuff); 2/3 are Slyth, 1/3 Gryff
Slytherdor, Ravenpuff, Ravenslyth
50% Slyth/Claw, 25% Puff, 25% Gryff
Overall, you’re definitely going to get uneven results, but are also definitely a Slytherin. Slyth is 1st, then probably Claw (it’s a hard call between Claw and Puff - but you have a possible Claw answer on 1, 2, always-Claw 3, mostly-Claw 7, vs. possible Puff answer on 1, 2, one-third chance of Puff on 3, 5, always on 6, one-third on 7. Based on the increased weight of Q3, that leads to a very narrow ranking of Claw over Puff - and if you look at what Claws actually answer (werewolves, stars), that might increase that a little (although it would also remove envied, so it might almost balance.) Gryff is last but still possible (glory, a Gryff Q2, cure order, change the past or werewolves, stars, black would do it - really, 4 of those 6 would probably be enough, and 3/6 in cases where you split the other 4 answers among the other Houses.)
Fairest-question Sorting: ignorant, plums and chocolate, being ignored, hexes/jinxes, alley, river, left - definitely Slyth (with Claw in 2nd, Puff in 3rd, no Gryff)
Second-fairest: great, fire, cbr, change the past, jinx Muggle, dusk, heads - Slytherin, but very narrowly! This is actually very close between Gryff and Slyth (with 1, 4, 5, (6) Slyth vs. 2, 3, (4) Gryff vs. (3), 7 Claw vs. 6, (7) Puff.) If you swapped your over-popular cure ordering with envied (because you actually choose a rare answer on that Q3, versus about 75%+ people choosing trusted/praised/liked - then this becomes a solidly Slyth Sorting with Ravenclaw in 2nd and Puff 3rd, Gryff last, again reflecting your overall tendencies.
So, yeah, definitely a Slytherin - mainly on your predilection for hexes/jinxes and water, and with the possibility of pulling any House, but also with a few Slyth-specific rare answers (envied, opinion matters when alive.)
Just finished the Ravenclaw flag. I really like how it turned out.
THE MAGIC BEGINS: Favourite movie.
