To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, YouGov polled more than a 1,000 Potter fans.
And it turns out most of 'em line up with Cedric Diggory rather than old Hazza P. Not so lame now, hey Draco?
When asked to choose which of a selection of personality traits they felt most applied to them, 54% of all Britons chose “hard work, patience, justice and loyalty” – straight up Hufflepuffs. Who knew?!
Perhaps even weirder, a third of Brits (36%) are Ravenclaws, identifying with “intelligence, creativity, learning and wit”.
Only a tiiiiiiiny proportion of Brits identified with Gryffindor (“courage, bravery, nerve and chivalry” on 4%) and Slytherin (“ambition, cunning, leadership and resourcefulness” on 5%).
More proof that it is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities...
