Some years ago, I won two free tickets to watch a Harry Potter movie. I think it was the Prisoner of Azkaban. Both my hubby and I were not Harry Potter fans, and it was going to be the first Harry Potter movie for both of us. I remember it was also on a weeknight and the movie was to be shown in the GSC cineplex in Gurney Plaza, which was a good 30-minute drive away.
So anyway, off we both went, got our popcorns and drinks and waited outside for the usher to allow us in. There was a quite a large crowd there already, apparently everyone also got free tickets! The free movie was a contest held by a movie magazine (I forgot the name of the magazine) and there was a journalist present. She was talking to a few people, and then as luck would have it, she zoomed in on my hubby and I.
She asked my hubby, “So, who is your favorite Harry Potter character?”
Hubby replied, “Errr… which one if Harry Potter?”
Hehe…. Anyway, pun aside, I was reminded of that date hubby and I had when I discovered Healy had invited me take a Harry Potter-related sorting quiz. Call me ignorant, but I simply have no idea what different Hogwarts houses there are (Hog what??? hehehe) , but all the better because I will have an unbiased view of this test. So I took the quiz, and here’s the house I got sorted into:
After taking the quiz, a feeling of déjà vu swept over me because I remember quite distinctly that I had taken it a while back before… and whaddya know? Some sleuthing around revealed that I had indeed taken it a few months ago, when I read about Paris’s results. Oddly enough, back then, I got sorted into the Hufflepuff house. Have I changed that much in 4 months? Am I suddenly more brave, chivalrous and courageous?

I know what you’re all thinking, “Not -another- sorting quiz!”, but before you get bored and leave, let me say a few things about it. This is not the ordinary sorting quiz that you’re used to. Unlike all those other quizzes infesting the Internet, this quiz actually sorts you for who you are as a person, not because your favorite animal is a lion.
I made this quiz as a reaction to all the bad sorting quizzes. The problem with most of the existing quizzes, is that the questions rarely have anything to do with which house you would actually be sorted into. Your favorite color doesn’t effect which house you belong to. Not every Gryffindor likes defense against the dark arts, not every Slytherin likes potions. Just look at Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Each is in Gryffindor, but each has a completely different disposition. Harry’s father was often a bully and a thief, yet he was still in Gryffindor.
This quiz will actually ask you psychological questions with a variety of answers that can’t easily be determined as to which house they fit into. This was meant to be more like what the Sorting Hat does. Just remember though that you must answer these questions truthfully in order to get an accurate answer.
Also these questions are written to take place in our world, not the world of Harry Potter. I didn’t give a Harry Potter theme to the quiz because the answers are more accurate this way. As Muggles, we don’t have any idea what it’s like to be faced with a troll or a bogart and we’ve never played quiddich. Our answers may be skewed as to how our favorite characters would act instead of ourselves. However, we all know what it’s like to live in the Muggle world because we do it every day.

Okay, I have a confession to make. This tag was just an excuse for me to narrate that Harry Potter story up there, so I’m not gonna tag anyone today. Besides, I’m so tired now. SIGH. It’s a five-day week and it’s only Tuesday!!!!
