The Sorting Ceremony always struck me as suspect. How do we know the Sorting Hat can see into our souls? Because some long-dead wizards with funny names said so? How do we know the Hat’s not just tossing people into houses willy nilly? “Yeah, this guy looks like a Gryffindor. And this guy? Total Hufflepuff. I’m like 50% sure on this.”
Personally, I feel that a more accurate assessment of a person’s character would involve choosing from a list of books. Nothing on this earth reveals more about you than the kinds of books you read. With that in mind, let’s give the REAL Sorting Test a try.
