Brain Lateralization Test: Left | Right

So I was thinking about those tongue-in-cheek posts about Hogwarts Houses that are like “So, uh, why are we dividing the kids up again?” and I started thinking what if there were actually practical differences for sorting the kids by personality? Such as catering to different learning styles in the classroom.

Like, Gryffindor classes are very hands-on and encourage kids to experiment and explore on their own.

Hufflepuff is more discussion-based and involves a lot of small-group projects that aren’t graded so much as evaluated by peers.

Ravenclaws have general topics and principles that need to be covered every year, but within that, each student is encouraged to learn in-depth about specific topics of their own interest.

Slytherins are very goal-oriented and while some competitiveness against each other is encouraged, they’re mostly rewarded for self-improvement. 

Just, you know, actual qualitative differences in the Houses.

Hogwarts Houses as Scents
  • Slytherin:Sea brine, iron, damp stone, roses, pine trees, mildew, mint, plum, bananas foster, the salty smell of play-doh, gasoline
  • Gryffindor:Burning fireplaces, cinnamon, cigarette smoke, vanilla, B.O., pumpkin spice, beer, sawdust, patchouli, leather, old crayon boxes
  • Ravenclaw:Petrichor, old paper, rosemary, musty attics, lavender, coffee, snickerdoodles, blueberries and raspberries, smoke after blown-out candles
  • Hufflepuff:Fresh compost, flowers, paint, sandalwood, lemon zest, honey, bacon, peppermint bark, fresh laundry, burning food, leather

Yes but please just imagine:

-Ravenclaws that skip history of magic and chill at the lake and discuss space and matter

-Ravenclaws that sketch/paint/draw wherever they are and wear odd artsy muggle clothes

-Ravenclaws that don’t know all the school books by heart but can explain the entire process of human evolution

-Ravenclaws that love poetry so much that they start quoting their favorite poems all day simply to annoy other people

-Ravenclaws that are NOT backstabbing

-Ravenclaws that don’t care about their grades

-Ravenclaws that have sleepover parties in front of the entrance to their common room because they’re all too drunk to answer the riddle correctly

-Ravenclaws that listen to the sweet sounds of heavy metal and hardstyle while studying

-Ravenclaws that are confused when others think Ravenclaws only like classic and jazz music

-Ravenclaws that have a great emotional intelligence and love playing the house therapist

-Ravenclaws that make technology work in their common room so they can all watch their favorite films and tv shows together

-Ravenclaws that use the common room as art gallery for all their paintings

-Ravenclaws that have friends in every house, because Ravenclaw is the most accepted of all the four houses

-Ravenclaws that are cool, friendly, fun and/or out-going

-Ravenclaws that are not the stereotype

-Ravenclaws that are actually like Ravenclaws should be: witty, intelligent, creative, original and open-minded

There's this Thing that y'all don't seem to get.

Gryffindors don’t give a shit about rules. The most hardline of them don’t even care about people. They care about justice. Right or wrong, black or white, there are no shades of grey. If it’s just, it’s always just; if it’s unjust, it’s always wrong. Hermione’s ruthlessness makes her a Gryffindor. She is absolutely sure that she is on the side of justice in everything that she does, and it’s such a Gryffindor trait.

Because Slytherins are ruthless, but they care about rules. Their own rules, usually, but rules nonetheless. They will impose parameters and limitations on themselves just so they have a framework to operate within. If doing something means violating their own internal code, then they’re not gonna do it. Even fucking Voldemort is like that. He broke every single fucking rule the Wizarding World ever put in place, but damn if he’d break his own.
