You might belong in Gryffindor,

Where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve, and chivalry

Set Gryffindors apart;

Gryffindor’s cardinal traits are bravery, pride, stubbornness and impulsiveness. Most people in the house of Gryffindor will be extroverted. (Remember, introversion is different than being shy: you can be a shy extrovert.) Gryffindors gain energy and life by being around people, grain strength from friends and enjoy working with those close to them. However, they are also emotionally volatile and can experience a wide range of feelings in a short amount of time, from unbridled happiness to deep depression to unrestrained rage. They are less emotionally stable than some of the other houses (such as Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff). Gryffindors are also generally good-hearted and trusting, and for the most part like people at first sight unless they are given a reason not to. Gryffindors are prideful, bad at taking criticism and easily get into conflicts with others—this is the main trait that would bring their overall level of agreeableness from high to average.

 

A Gryffindor’s prideful nature coupled with their sense of justice and stubborn behavior causes them to be extremely set in their ways. They have a difficult time backing down from a fight or admitting that they are wrong. It’s also very hard for them to get over a bad first impression or change their opinion on someone.

Imagine how I felt when I accidentally found Pottermore and was brought back to my childhood dream of going to Hogwarts and becoming a wizard. Thanks to this interactive visual web, I was even able to have my own wand and a striking Siamese cat. But the coolest part was absolutely being sorted by the Sorting Hat. Gryffindor is beyond expectation. How cool 🙂 Pretty awesome end for this freakin’ twisted week. Sometimes I do need this kind of entertainment, regardless of how childish and fanciful it might be.
