Misconceptions of Hufflepuffs


Hufflepuffs, I think, are the least discussed house in the Harry Potter universe. The majority of people only know that they exist, that Cedric Digory hailed from there, and probably respond the same way as AVPM Dumbledore did shown above. But what to we assume of them that may not be so?

Hufflepuffs are Cowards

Quite the contrary, actually. Their loyalty will make them courageous when they need to be. They will fight when they need to, it just may not be their first choice of action.

Hufflepuffs are Shy

They can be as social and charismatic as a Gryffindor when they want to be. Hufflepuffs are full of pride and make friends across all houses, and are great people to be around.

Hufflepuffs are Socially Awkward

Socially awkward and shy are different, because shy means it’s difficult to meet people while socially awkward means all social situations are uncomfortable. Again, that’s not a house specific thing. Hufflepuffs can be very social, it is part of their loyalty.

Hufflepuffs are Friends with Everyone

Hold on, I said they can be social with anyone and are loyal, but they do choose the people they are loyal to. Being nice does not equal friendship and loyalty necessarily. Plus being friends with everyone would be a pretty big burden.

Are you a Hufflepuff? What do you love about your house? Leave a comment for me!
