A lot of people over the course of the last two weeks have been flipping out over this newly redesigned sorting hat quiz that J.K. Rowling herself made this time around. She had her hand in it back when it was being launched at beta during 2011, but not like this. The questions alone are more detailed from only the mind of the author herself.

Yet everyone who joined the site within the first two years, 80% of them are being sorted into different houses. And you know what? It's okay to be emotional about it. Having an identity crisis is natural when you've associated yourself with a said fanbase for a very long time.

When I sorted into Hufflepuff, I was a little bewildered at first. Mostly because I don't look good in yellow haha, but it had more to do with the fact I always felt more like a Ravenclaw or a Gryffindor. Then I let it sink in and you know what? It was more fitting. They are known for a hard-working ethic, being loyal to those they care about and their causes, are patient individuals, and will play fair.

So maybe it wasn't such a horrible experience to be sorted into said house. But now in 2016, they have updated the sorting hat quiz and now everyone is in a blind panic. I took the quiz and was sorted again into Hufflepuff. I'm one of the lucky few who didn't freak out, but what about the rest that did?

Even some authors of the same genre J.K. Rowling wrote the Harry Potter series for, are freaking out or rejoicing about the house(s) they've been sorted into. Some are flat out baffled by this!

So to anyone still wondering what to do now since they may have to buy new house apparel or new wizarding robes, maybe you should look into seeing what your original house was and the new house you have been sorted into might look like.

Is it a Slytherpuff? Gryfferin? Ravenpuff? To find out, go to the tumblr blog, "Mixed House Pride" or "The Six Lost Houses of Hogwarts", to further explore the different house combinations.
