What are Hogwart’s house traits in Harry Potter?
- Gryffindor: Courage, bravery, daring.
- Ravenclaw: Intelligence, knowledge and wit.
- Hufflepuff: Kindness, loyalty and hard work.
- Slytherin: Ambition and cunning.
Gryffindor – The students of Gryffindor house tend to be brave, chivalrous and act to protect the defenceless. They are able to admit errors in judgement, which helps them learn from mistakes. Gryffindor is said by Rowling to represent “courage.”
Filius Flitwick is a Ravenclaw character that can best teach this trait while being very loyal and courageous to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft as well as only tending towards nervousness when placed beneath a lot of stress.
Hufflepuff – The Hufflepuff House values hard work, dedication and fair play, as well as loyalty with friends and grace with enemies. This means they are good people at heart.
Gryffindor-Bravery, Hufflepuff-Friendship, Slytherin-Cunning, Ravenclaw-Intelligence
My favorite are Hufflepuffs – known for their patience and loyalty, but more than most other traits. They are not as brave as Gryffindors, cunning as Slytherins or as witty and socialized with Ravenclaws. However, they will always do what is asked of them without fuss. In general the house emphasizes a down-to-earth values along with shyness instead of aggression and superiority which is shown by the three other houses. The common representation of a Hufflepuff would be a caring mother with her child on her lap because children take care of each more naturally than adults do which is unselfish kindness that supporters tend to display, such kindheartedness can help others feel better
I can tell you only about my favorite – The Gryffindor. Their traits are courage, nerve, and chivalry. Gryffindors tend to be daring and may speak without thinking quickly about consequences. They often do not have the patience for academia or sedentary jobs. Conversely, they are excellent in a crisis; their quick reflexes allow them to take decisive action when it is required of them. Many equestrians can be found in this house too with an affinity for a bit of adventure and risk taking- true to their name!
Gryffindor – people who show bravery, courage, and defiance against danger. These usually have a strong desire to guide others and protect them. They tend to do well in Defense Against the Dark Arts or Care of Magical Creatures.
Myrddin – people who are generally calm but emerge as brilliant leaders during times of need. They are often good listeners who enjoy learning new things about themselves and others with engaging discussions. These usually excel at Transfiguration or Charms classes, since they like performing magic tricks for their classmates while teaching them how to do it too!
Ravenclaw – people who thirst for knowledge and truth from anywhere they can find it
- Hufflepuff are known to work hard, be loyal, and value dedication
- Ravenclaw values intelligence, wisdom and wit. They have a marked interest in learning. Some also say that Ravenclaws rejoice in their eccentricities or uniqueness.
- Slytherin expects greatness from its members and encourages them to curate an impressive résumé or show cunning skill at something otherwise they will be considered disappointing. It is this drive for renown of fame of higher level which distinguishes Slytherin from other Hogwarts houses.
- Gryffindor prizes bravery above most other virtues so Slytherins usually regard Gryffindors as dumb because they’re easy targets who seem to take unnecessary risks.
- House Slytherin traits include pride, ambition, cunning.
- House Ravenclaw traits include knowledge-seeking and creativity.
- House Hufflepuff traits are diligence, justice, and patience.
- House Gryffindor traits are bravery and loyalty.
