Ever wondered what house you might have been sorted into, had that owl ever arrived with you’re your letter from Hogwarts? You’re in luck, because blogger Jesse Galef has created reading lists for each of the four houses.
Generally, members of the different houses are distinguished by salient personality traits.
“Gryffindors are brave, Ravenclaws are smart, Slytherins are evil and/or racist, and Hufflepuffs are pathetic loyal,” Galef writes in his blog, “Measure of Doubt.”
But while reading the fan-fiction, “Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality” — a Harry Potter spin-off in which Uncle Vernon is a biochemist and Harry is fascinated by science — Galef realized that members of the Hogwarts houses would probably have vastly different reading lists.
So Galef created “rational” reading lists tailored to the likely tastes and preferences of each house.
“Ravenclaws would be interested in philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and mathematics,” he writes. “Gryffindors in combat, ethics, and democracy; Slytherins in persuasion, rhetoric, and political machination; and Hufflepuffs in productivity, happiness, and the game theory of cooperation.”
Where do your reading preferences place you?
