The IDRlabs Ilvermorny House Test (IDR-IHT) is the property of IDRlabs International. The IDR-IHT utilizes names and components from the Harry Potter franchise, but is not in any way associated with J.K. Rowling, Pottermore, Wizarding World, or the Harry Potter franchise. It is not the equivalent of other “Pottermore” or “Wizarding World” house sorting quizzes. HARRY POTTER is a trademark of Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. The current test claims no association with Warner Bros., Pottermore, Wizarding World, or other related entities. No infringement is intended by the current test.

This Ilvermorny House Test has been created by psychology professionals experienced with personality typology and assessment. While the houses considered by this test are fictitious, this quiz does use real psychometric items and analysis to determine which house the user is best suited to. It classifies the user’s percentages on the four Ilvermorny houses of Thunderbird, Horned Serpent, Wampus, and Pukwudgie.

Tests related to the Harry Potter franchise and the Ilvermorny school of wizardry, whether they are professional, educational, or free online quizzes such as this one, are simply first looks at some aspect of your personality. In regards to the current test, your results will provide a clue as to your personality match with one of four possible Ilvermorny houses (Thunderbird, Wampus, Horned Serpent, and Pukwudgie). Typically, when it comes to personality assessments, no quiz ever devised can ascertain your personality with total accuracy or reliability, and no assessment can replace learning first-hand about personality theories and models. For more information regarding the above wizarding school and its houses specifically, consult official Harry Potter franchise materials.

Inspired by Hogwarts, the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is located in Massachusetts and educates many of North America’s magical youngsters. It is similarly divided into four competing houses: Thunderbird, Wampus, Horned Serpent, and Pukwudgie. J.K. Rowling tells us about the Ilvermorny sorting ceremony: “…one by one, [students] are called to stand on the symbol of the Gordian Knot set into the middle of the stone floor…. If the Horned Serpent wants the student, the crystal set into its forehead will light up. If the Wampus wants the student, it roars. The Thunderbird signifies its approval by beating its wings, and the Pukwudgie will raise its arrow into the air. Should more than one carving signify its wish to include the student in its house, the choice rests with the student.”
