For any other Harry Potter fans, I thought I’d share the best Hogwarts Sorting Hat quiz that I’ve ever found. It gives you a “primary” (motivations) and “secondary” (methods) house, and lets you argue back/explore further to maybe get a different result if you don’t like the one it initially gives you.

For me, it gives me a Ravenclaw primary and Hufflepuff secondary house, with a “modelled” Ravenclaw secondary (which basically means I use Ravenclaw methods of acculumating facts and knowledge too, but my instinct or fallback in times of stress is the Hufflepuff way of just putting in the work 😜). I also liked the point it made about how if a Ravenclaw’s moral code is a compassionate, people-centred one, then actually they become very difficult to tell apart from Hufflepuffs, which helps explain to me why both houses sound very relatable (although since my childhood I’ve had a preference for Ravenclaw πŸ˜†). There is actually a gargantuan amount of explanation as to the thinking behind the quiz and how it all works, which you can find on their blog here.

Ever read Harry Potter and found yourself longing for the delicious-sounding beverage Butterbeer? Well have I got good news for you: this YouTube video walks you through making it, from an old Elizabethan recipe. Nothing like that creamy soda crap at Universal Studios, either.
