Could you please tell me some differences between Gryffindors and Hufflepuffs? How to know if a character is a Hufflepuff or a Gryffindor? Because they have a lot in common.
That’s actually a really great question. The line can be pretty blurry but here are the distinctions as I see them*.
Traits: Chivalry, Courage, and Daring
Gryffindor House has been respected by the Wizarding Community for quite some time, and it is easy to see why. Gryffindor House focuses on fostering courage in it’s members to take action despite their fears. In general, more heroic acts of valor or mischievous and daring pranks get more attention than everyday acts of courage. This has caused many non-Gryffindors to claim they engage in “pointless heroics” or are reckless in their decisions. Gryffindors have also been known to have quick tempers and will jump before questioning whether or not it is safe to do so. This isn’t always a bad thing. Gryffindors help people be decisive and will push for action from those who may tend to over analyze the situation.
