What's up with these odd quiz results I keep getting?  
I don't know what the problem is. And I'm concerned because this is SIRIUS BUSINESS!

I fill them to the best of my ability and consciously, but then I get these weird results and I start wondering if I filled them honestly.

Because, apparently:

I am a Ravenclaw.

Your result for The Sorting Hat: A Comprehensive Harry Potter Personality Assessment [Test/Quiz]...


58% Ravenclaw, 40% Hufflepuff, 51% Slytherin and 49% Gryffindor!

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

The cardinal traits of Ravenclaw are intellect, wit and openness to experience. They are the most introverted house of the four. Ravenclaws are more likely to prefer small gatherings of like-minded individuals and require recooperation after stressful social interaction. These individuals are intuitive creatures, the quintessential researchers. They lack the stubborn, strict, and rule-abiding qualities that would inhibit intellectual growth—one can't be too set in their ways if they are to be open to exploring new ideas and paths of thought.In contrast to Slytherin and Gryffindor, Ravenclaws in general are much more emotionally stable. Their reactions seem dampened compared to the sometimes dramatic responses of the other houses—they're much less likely to get offended, they're more open to criticism, not particularly argumentative and interested in hearing different points of view. They can at times seem to be less interested in people and more interested in their own inner world, and appear to be disconnected from the rest of humanity.

Ambition is secondary to them. Although they may strive to excel in school, knowledge and self-enrichment is the primary goal as opposed to simply wanting good marks. If they do happen to strive for excellence, it is because it fits with their other goals, not out of a desire to be superior or the best. Due to their intuitiveness and willingness to listen, Ravenclaws can be empathetic and make good advisors. They should generally leave leadership roles to people who are more extraverted and who would enjoy them more, however.

I feel no association with this house. It's the only house I don't even have an icon for. And it's not that I don't like it. It's a fine house. It's a great house. Luna's there, how much more awesome can they get?

I just don't feel like I'd belong there.

I've always thought I'm a Hufflepuff. PuffPride! <3
And then there's Gryffindor. I wouldn't mind being a Gryffindor. :D
And then there's Slytherin. They have Draco. Of course, I'm in. ;)

But Ravenclaw? blinks

But the shock of getting Ravenclaw was nothing compared to the one I got when I did the 'what HP character are you most like'.

That's when I got Snape.

Your result for The Remarkably Thorough Harry Potter Character Test...

Severus Snape

"The Dark Arts are many, varied, ever-changing and eternal. Fighting them is like fighting a many-headed monster, which, each time a neck is severed, sprouts a head even fiercer and cleverer than before. You are fighting that which is unfixed, mutating, indestructible."

You are Severus Snape, the Potions Master and eventual Headmaster of Hogwarts. Professor Snape is cold, calm, and calculating. He prefers to roam the world alone and unloved, for the only woman he ever loved married another. His bitterness stems from Lily’s rejection, and the fact that he couldn’t save her from Voldemort adds to his endless grief. Not to mention she married his worst enemy - talk about a slap in the face! As a spy, he is the ultimate dark protagonist, much like Batman or Beatrix Kiddo. It is impossible to deduce what he is feeling or thinking because he rarely ever reacts to situations. You are similar to Snape in the sense that you are both angry individuals. You tend to hide from people rather than embrace them in friendship, and you do not tolerate being talked down to or belittled. What people don’t know, however, is that you are merely wearing a mask. The hard shell that surrounds you is there only to cover the anguish you feel on a day-to-day basis. Secretly, you are a lover, but the pain of life has condemned you to a cynical perspective. I suggest that you take a long hard look at what's really bothering you, and do whatever you can to heal yourself. Whether that means taking a vacation, going skydiving, playing video games, calling up some friends to go see a movie, it's up to you. Do what makes you happy, and don't let the world get you down!

In short, you are more:

Cautious than impulsive
Mature than immature
Arrogant than modest
Normal than weird
Introverted than extroverted

Your polar opposites are Fred and George Weasley.

Another big, huge wtf.

I thought I'd get someone like Luna, and I know, it's odd considering how little association I feel with her house, but still.

Or Neville. Maybe even Remus. I don't know, someone, you know, nice. But Snape? Really? I'm a Ravenclaw Snape? Heh. Meh.

Obviously I'm filling these all wrong. I mean, hopefully.

Maybe I fill them thinking that's how I should be, or how I think people see me, or maybe I think I'm filling them honestly when I'm really going Eeny, meeny, miny, moe in my head.

The only quiz result I ever got and I could see was when I took this crazy "What number are you?" Quiz and I got a big "You Are Number 1!" And I admit I was peeved when they congratulated me for having everything to be forever alone. Meep.

Do you get crazy, weird results, too? Surely I'm not alone on this one. ^^

LOL! Welcome to the smart house! Lots of geeks and nerds around!

I think I'd rather be like Snape than who I got. I ended up most like Remus Lupin. Ugh! Now I have nothing against the sweet man, but I never aspired to be like him. So if I can't dazzle with my brilliance, I will apparently bore you to death.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 3rd, 2013 08:59 pm (UTC)
I feel better already! <3

It's just that these were such random results for me. I'm still blinking at them. I feel I was a mad-clicker picking and answers or something. lol

I wonder who got Voldemort. :D

I'd love that answer. Though I get Snape almost always, so that's neat too.

I got Moody. :) I have an inkling why, though.

You must have clicked that you don't animals. That is bound to get you Snape. ;)

Did you do the Sorting Hat from Pottermore?
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 3rd, 2013 09:23 pm (UTC)
I clicked that I liked animals. I remember that one because, well, I do! :D So no, that's not it.

I'm not into Pottermore. *is a loser* LOL No, I haven't sign up for pottermore yet. I keep meaning to, but then the fever passed and now I'd be soo behind. But I know I eventually will. :)

Moody's so cool! :D

My little Luna! ♥

My little Snuna? WHAT??

I love how they list Snape as being more "normal" than "weird." Clearly there is some sort of glitch in the test. :/

welcome to villa cariño!: capitu/tjwritter OTP 4EVERcapitu on September 4th, 2013 11:11 am (UTC)
LOL! You're right, Snape is more normal than weird, which is just WEIRD because he's, well, he's Snape! :P

I appreciate Snape as a character, with his qualities and flaws, I just can't see myself as Snapey, you know?

I got Molly Weasley again. I can sort of see it, but my first reaction was o.O
I'd done it last year and got Molly as well. So that quiz is pretty sure of where they'd put me. *shrugs*

I guess no one had better touch my kids. *evil eye*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 4th, 2013 11:13 am (UTC)
LOL! I am glad I'm not the only one getting weird results. :D

I took it twice and I got Snape both times so... um. I don't what to think about it too much.

Molly's cool! <3 You have one of the best lines in the whole series!

Yeah but the truth is that the real sorting hat would have taken your preferences into account. It wasn't like your results were all over the place either, they were all in the 40's and 50's, I think if you identify as a puff, then a puff you are! (I have no idea about Snape however, maybe he was a hufflepuff inside)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 4th, 2013 11:17 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think the hat would. I would have a conversation with it before he decides. I'd definitely end up in Hufflepuff or Slytherin. The idea of waking up every day in a tower is one I can entertain without sweating cold. Snape, he could have a Puff side, surely! People are complex. :D

Hello there, house mate! I'm also Ravenclaw, at least according to Pottermore Sorting Hat. I never thought of having much qualities for Ravenclaw, I thought I might be more like Hufflepuff or Gryffindor.

Then again, when I took the quiz at HelloQuizzy, I suddenly was Gellert Grindelwald and so Slytherin that my teeth ached. How weird is that? And I swear, I answered all the questions as honestly as I could.

I guess that there are so many sides in us, that the quizzes or Sorting Hat doesn't really have a clue where to put us. I think it's great, having so many opportunities and possibilities at hand :)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 4th, 2013 11:21 am (UTC)
Well, hello there! We could be dormmates! I haven't done the Pottermore sorting. I'm really curious about what it'd say.

It's funny getting odd results. I took these and I sat looking at them wondering what the heck did I answer to what to get them. Lol

I suppose they run with a group of specific answers instead of others, you know? The stuff I think about myself most are not the ones I associate with these results but it doesn't mean I'm nothing like them either. I dunno. It's all fun though. The WTF! Factor included. :D

I got Bellatrix Lestrange. *cries* Can I just assume that they enjoy giving us the weirdest characters first and having us cringe and sob over them? Whyyy...

I think I preferred this one based on the Meyers Briggs Personality Test better.
Picture edited to be put behind a link instead.

At least it made more sense in my mind.

welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 9th, 2013 07:19 pm (UTC)

Yeah. They have all sorts of weird characters. Another friend got Dobby. O.O

And I agree, these one seem much more friendly. Snape? Bella? Who are we!? XD

Yeah Ravenclaw isn't really flashy or interesting or anything in canon outside of Luna. My husband is a Ravenclaw though and I find him flashy and interesting.

Snape. He's a bad ass. It's not a bad character to be. I got Slughorn and I very unimpressed.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 10th, 2013 06:55 pm (UTC)
I think there was a flow of people wanting to be Ravenclaw after we discovered that instead of a password you had to think your way into the common room. :D Which, yeah, it IS pretty neat. But I never felt assosiation with the house. Not sure what it says about me. :D

And yeah, Snape is popular in my flist! I just want whaa? When I got him. Slughorn now, hmmm. Are you more weird than normal? XD
