The Tale of a Sorting Hat  03/30/2017

Have you ever wondered how certain things work in Harry Potter?

 

 

Take the Hogworts Sorting Hat for instance...

According to J.K. Rowling the famous Hogwarts Sorting Hat gives an account of its own genesis in a series of songs sung at the beginning of each school year.

Legend has it that the hat once belonged to one of the four founders, Godric Gryffindor, and that it was jointly enchanted by all four founders to ensure that students would be sorted into their eponymous houses, which would be selected according to each founder's particular preferences in students.

 

 

The Sorting Hat is one of the cleverest enchanted objects most witches and wizards will ever meet. It literally contains the intelligence of the four founders, can speak (through a rip near its brim) and is skilled at Legilimency, which enables it to look into the wearer's head and divine his or her capabilities or mood. It can even respond to the thoughts of the wearer.

The Sorting Hat is notorious for refusing to admit it has made a mistake in its sorting of a student. And on balance, the Hat has made remarkably few errors of judgement over the many centuries it has been at work.

 

 

While trying to think of how best to sort students into their respective houses in the early plans for Hogworts, she had to come up something not overly complicated, and so after writing a list of how people got chosen:  eeny meeny miny mo, short straws, chosen by team captains, names out of a hat - names out of a talking hat - putting on a hat - the Sorting Hat..
