About This Quiz

In 1997, J. K. Rowling released "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Students in this Wizarding World were placed in Hogwarts houses based on their personality traits. You watched characters like Harry, Ron and Hermione get sorted into Gryffindor, because they were brave. Characters like Draco Malfoy seemed evil, but he was a Slytherin because of his ambition. The houses continued with Ravenclaw students like Luna, who were known for their intelligence and creativity, while Hufflepuff students were known for their hard work and loyalty. Which house do you belong in?

It might be easier to pick your Hogwarts house based on your personality, but often times, the music we listen to is a direct reflection of it! Those listening to daring crossovers between genres could be Gryffindors. If you're open to all genres of music, this could mean you're a Hufflepuff at heart. Are you a Slytherin with a playlist for every emotion, or Ravenclaw who likes things that are off the beaten path? Are you ready to decide once and for all which Hogwarts house you belong in? What kind of music will you and your house be jamming to? Take this quiz to find out!
