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!
Go check out the Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Gryffindor posts as well.
I’m a proud Hufflepuff. I take a while to open up but once I like you sorry but your stuck with me. I’m not shy I’d say reserved but only at first. I think us Hufflepuffs can get a bad rep as push overs but cool posts like this definitely help the cause! Thanks x
I’m a Hufflepuff too! I used to think it was fitting for the misconceptions at first. It seemed to be the miscellaneous house that anyone could get into. My friends would make fun of me for saying I couldn’t make up my mind on a more popular house. As I’ve gotten older I find there’s so much more to Hufflepuff house than people know. I’ve befriended so many other Hufflepuffs too! We’re just a great group of people to be around! 🙂
I took this test: http://www.thealmightyguru.com/Reviews/HarryPotter/Docs/Quiz-House.html and I got Gryffindor. I had never thought about what I would be before, thanks for this post and for the motivation to search for the quiz and take it!

Hufflepuff and proud!!! I always think of Badger from Wind & the Willows being a Hufflepuff, a little gruff, maybe a bit solitary but solid, loyal, and the one you go to for advice.
