These are the house characteristics for each house  

Hufflepuffs are kind, loyal, fair, and hardworking. They are often construed as “the rest”, but they are in fact an important House of their own. Bono could be a Hufflepuff!

… For Hufflepuff, hard workers were
Most worthy of admission;

…You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;


Gryffindors are brave, loyal, and brash. Since Harry is a Gryffindor, they are the most glorified in the series, but each House has equal pluses and minuses. Joan of Arc is a good example of a Gryffindor!

…By Gryffindor, the bravest were
Prized far beyond the rest;

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;

Ravenclaws value wit, learning, and brains. They are smart, often analytical and enjoy learning, but can sometimes have their heads in the clouds. Albert Einstein is an obvious Ravenclaw!

… For Ravenclaw, the cleverest
would always be the best;

…Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;


Slytherins are ambitious, cunning, mischevious, and loyal. Although often depicted as “evil”, this is really only their ambition shining through. Donald Trump is an excellent example of a would-be Slytherin!

…And power-hungry Slytherin
loved those of great ambition.

…Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.
