MuggleNet Academia Lesson 42: "Pottermore’s Sorting Hat: The Dark Triad Dirty Dozen"

MuggleNet Academia is a comprehensive insight into the literary thematic elements and scholastic endeavors that author J.K. Rowling has provided in her writings of the Harry Potter and Cormoran Strike series.

We look through the entire Harry Potter series for various elements in alchemy, literary components, composition attributes, as well as available classes at Universities and Colleges around the world, and various unique studies that are being implemented today. We also dissect the Cormoran Strike mystery detective series as the books are being released, helping readers understand and appreciate the writings of the modern-day Dickens, J.K. Rowling.

In this lesson, we discuss the Pottermore Sorting Quiz by J.K. Rowling and what the resultant house assignment really tells about you and your personality. What does this sorting say to you about your relationship with the Harry Potter saga. Are you an extraverted Gryffindor; an agreeable Hufflepuff; a clever Ravenclaw; or a manipulative Slytherin? How does the 'Dark Triad Dirty Dozen' (narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psycopathy) tell us about your sorting? Does the study work for other fandoms such as Divergent Factions, Hunger Games Districts. And so much more.

Also joining the show is a Junior Psychology student from Mary Baldwin College, Sharanya Rao, who is an International student from India.

We hope you enjoy the show. Thank you for listening.
