About This Quiz
Ever since the publication of the first "Harry Potter" book, hundreds of millions of children have dived into the wizarding world and imagined how it would feel to get their own letter from Hogwarts. Sure, the students of "Harry Potter" deal with a lot of downsides: they have no cell phones, computers or other gadgets, for a start. They also have a headmaster who seems determined to hire a long series of chumps, frauds and imposters to teach one of the most important classes. They also have a shockingly high rate of death and injury, and a seeming absence of any health or safety rules. They also face a rather peculiar procedure that involves putting on an intelligent hat.
However, they more than compensate for all of this with the wonder that is learning magic in a magnificent castle. They learn how to master their natural abilities to change their form, make objects move, mix magical potions and care for mystical animals that you'd never find in a regular zoo. While some of the teachers are pretty ghastly, a lot of Hogwarts students are taught by some of the finest minds in their fields. Which of them would you connect with most deeply? Let's find out!
