Hello all. I was checking out pottermore.com and messing with the sorting hat and wand through the website and I was impressed by the description my choices led me to through the quizes. It was light hearted and fun so I decided to ask everyone what they got as their house and anything else of interest through the site. Also, is a poll attached-I hope it doesn't pop up before reading the thread!- on which house everyone got.
For me, I got Ravenclaw as my house. For the wand, mine is a 12'' Sycamore with dragonheartstring as the core. It is also slightly springy.
This works perfectly for me as I've always seen myself as some wizard creating more extravagantly ridiculous spells that will eventually lead to my spontaneous combustion.
I was thinking that Slytherin and Hufflepuff might be associated with the Beta and Alpha Quadrants while Gryffindor and Ravenclaw could be associated with the gamma and delta quadrants. My initial thoughts were Slytherin(Alpha) Hufflepuff(Beta) Ravenclaw(Delta) and Gryffindor(Gamma). I sincerely doubt it's that clean cut, but they were impressions I had.
Heyoooo! I've been waiting for people to discuss this topic of great importance.
I got Gryffindor as my house on Pottermore, but I identify far more with Ravenclaw (I can explain why if you want), so that's how I voted. I really like the wand I got, though - a slightly springy 12.5 inch dogwood wand with a dragon heartstring core. It means I'm clever and funny!
EDIT: Mind if I put some links to other Sorting Hat quizzes here? This one is based off the Big Five Factors and has been widely lauded as accurate (I got Ravenclaw), and here's a rather interesting (though potentially divisive?) system someone on Tumblr came up with (I think Ravenclaw fits me best as a primary house, not sure what my secondary is).

rualani - I noticed that the link to pottermore.com wasn't working in your post, so I fixed it in order to make it easier for people to access the quiz.. I hope that's okay!
I actually got Slytherin, just as you predicted for Alphas! I wonder what lead you to your thoughts on how each house might relate to CT?
EDIT: The wand I got is Blackthorn Wood with a Unicorn Hair core, 10 ¾" and Hard Flexibility ^^
Ohhh, what an interesting wand wood and a rare core. Looks like with hard work and dedication your wand will prove to be a consistent ally in the fight against evil.
On the topic of CT cross-over, I was thinking that Slytherin would have a Fe dynamic due to social competition and a focus on ranking. I had watched a bunch of alpha music videos and they were all about that sort of thing, so I predicted Slytherin. Now that I think about it Gryffindor had that sort of behavior in it as well.
I guessed Delta for Ravenclaw because the description is Fi/Te quirky goober. Really the tolerance and weird experiments were what made me think of it. I don't know what to think of Hufflepuff or Gryffindor anymore, I was just trying to shoehorn every house to a type.
Also, where all da Hufflepuff at!

I tried the pottermore sorting hat three times with different accounts on the original quiz. I got Gryffindor each time.
When I found out there was a new sorting hat, I made a spoof account to try it out. I got Hufflepuff.
It seems like the questions and answers were the same, but the format changed my results. That speaks to the amount of influence a test's methodology can have on subjects results. Then again, to be fair, the people at pottermore admitted to manipulating the sorting hat results to insure approximately equal populations in each house. In other words, unless you scored very clearly one house, you got dropped into the "25%" that sorted based on the least populated house at the time. So, maybe pottermore isn't a very good comparison for personality testing, especially typology.

Disclaimer: Everything I say here is my OPINION. Please keep that in mind.
The Doctor : It gets worse. The questions themselves aren't even fully predictive of house fit; that is, there are answers counted as "X house answers" which people sorted into those houses rarely choose, and others which have a near-universal mix between all of them. Coupled with the practice of evening out House counts, Pottermore stats are probably not the most reliable out there when looking at Hogwarts houses, let alone cognitive type.
They did, however, type me Slytherin, which is not wrong...
