The test provides feedback such as the following:

Ravenclaw: Ravenclaws value intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit. Their house mascot is the eagle, and their colors are blue and bronze. They tend to be rational, logical, and curious about academic learning. They pride themselves on the originality of their ideas, as well as their vast array of book knowledge. As is sometimes the case with intellectuals, some Ravenclaws are inclined to dismiss social conventions for the sake of satisfying their own intellectual curiosity. For this reason, they are sometimes thought of as eccentric or odd, but they may end up celebrated or renowned when they manage to come up with new and valuable ideas.

Or: Wampus: House Wampus at Ilvermorny is named after a magical cat-like creature of the same name. This house is thought to represent the physical body of a witch or wizard. Wampus members tend to be strong and capable in both mind and body and have the spirit of a warrior. They are loyal, dependable, and have well-defined personal values and goals. Those in House Wampus are not afraid to stand up for what they believe is right.
