I'd tell you not to worry because it will be find, but I know it's no use
I was so incredibly nervous about my sorting, had multiple dreams about it.

That's pretty intense, Oak. Were you happy with what house you were sorted into?

I admit I am quite nervous about being sorted too. I think everyone feels that way though :)

Yeah, I fretted over my sorting. And the terrible thing was, I had to restart the test a few times because the site kept going out. It was really crappy. From experience, don't worry too much about sorting. You'll come to love any house it puts you in, I think. I never see anyone who is sorted in here complaining about what they got. It seems like most of us are content. : D

Though I am wondering why they haven't put up more news yet. I kinda hoped they would.

Perhaps a better way to word what I was trying to say is that I wouldn't worry about it, because like Dia said, you are going to be happy with your sorting, but it's okay to be nervous. Everyone is nervous about their sorting, but don't worry about being happy with it, because you will be.

Unless you've decided ahead of time that you will only be happy if you get one certain house, in which case honestly you are setting yourself up for disappointment. You can go in with a preferred house and come out happy, but be open to other options. There is more to each house than you realize before being sorted.

And to answer your question, I am delighted to be a Hufflepuff. Though I was confused when I saw the yellow banner, I've since realized that the Sorting Hat got it completely right. :)

Yes, the best advice I can give to any Sortee is this:
If you get a house you didn't want, or not get the house you did, DON'T just create a new account and try again. Stick with your house for just a few weeks and you'll come to love it above all else, or double your money back. Besides, if you fiddle your results, I'd imagine that you'd never truly feel a member of your chosen house.
And enjoy it! It was definitely my favourite and most emotional part of the Pottermore experience. Good luck!

Re: Concern about House Sorting

I decided to split this topic and move it to the Waiting Room since we are no longer talking about the Pottermore Insider.

Like Rumble, Oak and Dia said, if you're not happy with your sorting at first, give it some time. I was hoping to be sorted into Hufflepuff. It was the house I always got when I took other sorting quizzes, and I had grown a bit attached to it. When the blue banner of Ravenclaw popped up, I was a bit disappointed, to be quite honest. After reflecting for a bit, however, I realized that I do belong in Ravenclaw. I have many Ravenclaw qualities, and from an education standpoint, they are probably the ones that are most dominant. I still could happily be in Hufflepuff, but I am proud to be a Ravenclaw.

Here on the forum, I'm head of Gryffindor House. I don't have many Gryffindor qualities myself, but after spending time with the other Gryffs in the Common Room, I feel a real connection to that house as well. I would be very happy if my sorting had said Gryffindor. It's a great house!

All that to say that your sorting is what you make of it. You may be surprised or disappointed at first, but remember that that is where the Sorting Hat placed you, and the the Sorting Hat doesn't make mistakes! Embrace whatever house you get and be a proud member!
