    The core values of Gryffindor are bravery and courage. They do not put an emphasis on plans, intelligence, or teamwork. These values mean Gryffindor produces many great individuals, such as Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin, and others. Their fatal flaw is the desire for glory, sometimes at the expense of their House. Individuals that come out of Gryffindor are not made better by their time in Gryffindor, therefore, they rank lowest.

    Ravenclaw's defining trait is its intelligence. The house puts an emphasis on learning, and wisdom. As such it's produced some of the more brilliant witches and wizards, even if they are a bit odd. Sibyl Trelawney and Luna Lovegood come from Ravenclaw. They are an honorable people, and you can't go wrong having Ravenclaws in your corner. However, as is the case in any academic tradition, the focus on intelligence can lead to a lack of action-oriented witches and wizards.

    Hufflepuff's core values of hard work and loyalty make for some incredible witches and wizards, whose devotion to loyalty and patience make them great friends and wonderful colleagues. I think Hufflepuff also represents the most inclusive and therefore diverse house, you have a mix of smart, fun, and everything in between with Hufflepuff. So, joining Hufflepuff will teach you to value all skills, enhancing your own but recognizing the need for teamwork and friendship.

    Cunning, resourceful, determined, and ambitious. Slytherins core values are the mark of someone destined for greatness. Two of the most powerful wizards of all time, Merlin and Tom Riddle, were Slytherins, and the Slytherin House is the most frequent winner of The House Cup. While some in this house go bad, it also has some of the most incredible stories of redemption in Regulus Black and Severus Snape. As the sorting hat told Harry: "Slytherin will help you on your way to greatness"
