Pottermore Ilvermorny Sorting Test -- All Questions! | Comments
Below are comments submitted by GoToQuiz users for the quiz Pottermore Ilvermorny Sorting Test -- All Questions!
I liked this quiz; it brought up some interesting discussions. I liked that the questions were so vague, because it allowed me to interpret the answers in my own way. (Rather than a specific scenario with answers that clearly align with each of the four houses).
For comparisons sake, I think its interesting that I am a Ravenclaw-Thunderbird. These houses don't directly correlate, but Ilvermorny is not a foreign replica of Hogwarts. This school was founded much later on and its founder would likely have looked at other known schools and learned from their mistakes and successes.
What is a Thunderbird?
Is it like a Gryffindor?
The following quote is from a site with great explanations of the Ilvermorny houses.
"The four Ilvermorny Houses have been described as each representing a different part of the human being; Horned Serpent represents the mind and favors scholars; Wampus represents the body and favors warriors; Pukwudgie represents the heart and favors healers; Thunderbird represents the soul and favors adventurers. Whereas Hogwarts Houses describe which traits you value above all else, Ilvermorny Houses describe who you are and how you define yourself."
Here's the link to the site if you want to look into it more. Pottermore also has articles and quizzes on this topic.
Additionally, if they are not approached by any statue they would not be able to attend the school. If they do not align with any of the Ilvermorny houses they will not be approached. This weeds out those who are solely out for power or have darkness in their sole (i.e. those best suited to the Slytherin stereotypes would not be welcome here). This gives Ilvermorny more exclusivity than a school such as Hogwarts with Prides itself on accepting all witches and wizards despite their background, as long as they show that they have magical ability. I would argue though, that the most exclusive school of witchcraft and wizardry remains to be Pigfarts, the Intergalactic School of Martian Witchcraft and Wizardry.
