Did the Sorting Hat get it right?
And then when I finally was sorted, I was sorted into Slytherin. I WAS SO MAD. I did NOT belong in Slytherin. I attribute that faulty placement to the fact that I had a bad day.
This was not me.
So what did I do? I did not believe I could belong in Slytherin, so I created another Pottermore account and played through until I got sorted again.
And this time I got Hufflepuff. HUFFLEPUFF?!?!! Those dorks? No thank you.
So I created another Pottermore account. And this time got Ravenclaw.
Which was better. But I wasn't convinced. I had to have a decisive answer. I decided that I'd create another account and whichever House I got that time was it. I was sure at this point that I wouldn't get Gryffindor. So of the three, whichever one I got, was going to be it.
And I got Hufflepuff.
But I'm not Gryffindor.
I'm not brave or daring. I'm not a "hothead". I'm slow and methodical. And I think problems through while weighing all options. To me, that's Hufflepuff. And I've embraced it. I welcome the Hufflepuff-ness of my nature. But I'll totally go honeybadger on you if you insult us.
Yes, I have my Ravenclaw moments, and then I do something stupid and I'm like, duh. Or when I have a bad day and lash out, that's totally Slytherin.
What do you think? Were you sorted correctly? Or did you do like I did and create numerous accounts until you got one you agreed with?
My last thought on the Sorting Hat is that we all have qualities that belong in every House. Some just more than others.
