Welcome to another installment of Harry Potter Theory. In this video, we’re going to be discussing Hermione, the sorting hat, and the hogwarts housing system. More specifically, we will be answering the question: Why wasn’t Hermione in Ravenclaw? As we know, there are four hogwarts houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Each house has defining characteristics, and at the beginning of a students journey at Hogwarts, they are assigned to one of these four houses based on how well the students own character traits mesh with the principles of the house. The assign-ee of the Hogwarts houses is the fabled Sorting hat- a filthy, old, frayed, dirty hat that once belonged to Hogwarts founder Godric Gryffindor. The hat is extremely outspoken, and is praised by professors and students alike for its uncanny ability to assign houses to hogwarts students. The founders of Hogwarts recognized that they each valued very different virtues, virtues which ended up leading to the defining attributes of each house. It was important to them that the houses they founded would continue to follow by the beliefs from which they were based. But one thing that I have always wondered is: if Intelligence is the defining characteristic of Ravenclaw, then why wasn’t our very own Hermione Granger in Ravenclaw house? In the years that she spent at Hogwarts, she was widely considered to be ‘the brightest witch of her age’. Time and time again, she displayed lateral thinking, quickly adjusting to her circumstance or environment and overcoming all sorts of obstacles. Not only that, but she has an inquisitive and practical mind which allows her to constantly challenge the status-quo, frequently introducing new approaches to conventional methods of spell conjuring or potion making. She just exudes intelligence on so many levels, so again, why Ravenclaw? Please LIKE / SUBSCRIBE / SHARE to support the channel Leave your video ideas down below! Thanks!
