I just took a sorting hat quiz and got Gryffindor.
I don’t even know what is going on.
I think of the most important things to think as well is that the Sorting Hat takes your choice into consideration. Sure Draco had a lot of *slytherin traits* but even before he got to hogwarts he was saying he was going to be in Slytherin. I heard someone say that Ron should have been a hufflepuff, but then you remember he said he would rather be back home then be a hufflepuff.
The sorting hat takes what you value the most and then works it with the rest. Like, Peter Pettigrew, to most people, by all accounts, should be a “Slytherin” because he betrayed his best friends, but, in some really twisted way, betraying your friends is one of the bravest and cowardly thing you can do. Brave because you are taking all the memories, all of the moments, all of the feelings, your entire past and your future with these people and tossing it aside to start something that may not entirely work out (which it didn’t for Wormtail).
And, well, we know why it’s cowardly.
These quizzes can’t properly give you a house to fit in, although they can suggest it. You’ve said you were a Hufflepuff for the longest time—you /are/ a hufflepuff. A hufflepuff can have *slytherin* qualities, only, as Katie brilliantly said, you value the traits Hufflepuff value /more/ than the traits that /Slytherins/ value.
Keeping this on the long winded track, I am a Gryffindor. I have known since I first started reading. Although knowledge was important to me, my first inititive was always to speak out when I felt something was wrong, even if that opinion wasn’t popular. It’s always been to think *differently* and.. well, I dunno. I think loyalty is really important but there is a sense of adventure in me that has yet to be tamed.
