Quick And Easy Guide to Your Harry Potter Social Media Type

According to the Harry Potter – Hogwarts wikipedia, there are four houses, each with a specific set of values. The sorting hat selects a house for each student, with each of the four houses being named after a specific person: Gryffindors, Slytherins, Ravenclaws, and Hufflepuffs. How do these house types translate to your social media type? Read on.


This type values courage, bravery, nerve, and chivalry. This social media personality prefers vlogging to blogging, and likes to do live video. Whenever there’s a chance to shine, the Gryffindor personality is right there. Think about Harry Potter in the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He travels to Godric’s Hollow without any real plan, and is attacked by a giant snake and nearly killed.


The Slytherin type values ambition, cunning, leadership, and resourcefulness. Many startups, especially in the early stages, are filled with Slytherins. Slytherins may want to use the dark web, a part of the internet not indexed by search engines. Slytherins may rely on “vanity metrics” more than the other social media types. They may buy followers, which can lead to all kinds of trouble. Here’s what happens when ¬†you buy followers. Hint: Just don’t do it!


Ravenclaw values intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit. Some of your best friends may have these same values (I’m a Ravenclaw, by the way). These are the ones who might spend hours in the library. While you might think that Hermione is a Ravenclaw, she values courage even more than intelligence. Ravenclaws believe that the pen is mightier than the sword. And very often, it is. They like to do research, and are the artists and writers of the social media world.


Hufflepuffs values hard work, patience, justice, and loyalty. Among the Harry Potter personality types, Hufflepuffs don’t get the credit they deserve. They’re the ones quietly working away, while others may get the credit. They make good content providers and researchers. According to Harry Potter Wiki on Hufflepuff, Hufflepuffs are the most inclusive of all the types. They’re not as competitive as the other types and are modest about their achievements. Every team needs a few Hufflepuffs to succeed. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that without Hufflepuffs to do the work, nothing would get done.

What’s Your Harry Potter Social Media Type?

There are numerous tests you can take to discover your type. But if you’re a big Harry Potter fan, you probably already know which type you are. Which one are you?

  1. As much as I want to be a Gryffindor, my values always seem to come back to Ravenclaw. However, I tend to have a heroic streak, sticking up for those who can’t do it for themselves, so in this way I’m kind of Hermione; maybe I squeeze into Gryffindor on a whim. :-)

    • Hi Mitch,

      You’re a Gryffinclaw, a rare type, which is to say your sun is in Gryffindor and your rising sign is in Ravenclaw. I suspect that no one is truly all one type, but have many of the house qualities of several houses.

      By the way, I heard a rumor that there could be another Harry Potter book. I figure you’d be the right person to ask about that!

      Thanks for the comment,

      • Well… it’s hard to comment on a rumor if it’s a rumor about a rumor. Did you mean movie or book? If you meant either of the other two it’s not really a rumor but a wish that some people are pushing around, hoping JK will see it & do something about it. Not gonna happen, at least not now; she’s working on the Fanstastic Beasts scripts.

        • Oh, hi. I made a boo-boo. I meant to say “book!” It’s not a rumor about a rumor, hahaha! I guess we all think if we wish hard enough that our wishes will come true. Wishful thinking! We’ll just have to start over again with Book One.
