What subject would you be best in?
« on: November 12, 2003, 07:10:42 AM »
Hopefully, this is the right place for this ... anyway. So I found this quiz, http://www.selectsmart.com/FREE/select.php?client=hoggysubj1, which basically figures out which Hogwarts class you'd do well in. It's pretty cool, I guess, well original anyway. There are more quizzes on that site if anyone's interested.

My top class is apparantly The Dark Arts, followed by DADA, and 'You'd be good at them all!' :P

Try it ... it's pretty interesting. :D

Well, thats a little closer, but still sad.

*pleasant smile* On the contrary, Madeline, the test only predicted which would be my strongest subject.  It never said I would be bad at the others.  Unless, of course, you'd like us to believe you'd truly to that bad studying muggles.

And Xan, it makes sense that to be good at defending against Dark Arts you would be good at performing them, as well.  This doesn't mean you ever would, just that if you chose you could.

Muggles?  Terribly interesting, aren't they?  Although I hear they have some frightfully odd customs.  I also hear that some of their inventions are really complicated.  Something about the theory of relatives, and ecclecticity.  Anyway, they don't interest me that much, and as you know, subjects which don't interest me end up with very little of my attention... ending with rather mediocre marks for me, alas.

 :-\
I was NOT very happy with the results of my test!
I could guaruntee you that I would be the best at flying.  This leads me to believe that the test is automated.  Oh, well, it was fun, though.

- astronomy
- potions ( I agree here, I'd love potions)
- transfiguration
- divination
- flying
- you'd be good at them all
- arithmancy
- care of magical creatures
- defense against the dark arts
- herbology
- charms
- the dark arts
- you'd suck at them all
- history of magic
- muggle studies
- occlumency/legilimency

It figures that I'd be the worst at the ones that I'd be the most interested in.  
Cheers! ;)

DADA
Transfiguration
Care of Magical Creatures
Occlumency and Leglimency
Potions
Herbology
Dark Arts
Astronomy
Charms
History of Magic
Muggle Studies
Arithmancy
Divination

Go me.

People keep thinking that the Dark Arts and Defense against them are somehow counter to eachother. That's silly. You obviously have to know something about the Dark Arts to be able to counter them. Harry and his class had to learn under "Mad Eye Moody" about the three unforgivable curses before they could attempt to counter them. The two really go hand in hand - it's just what you use the knowledge for.

More or less what I expected. Oh, and Dawn, Legilimency is a form of mind reading, and Occlumency is blocking it.  ;D

Thanks.  I can't believe I forgot that, I feel really stupid now.  This test is fun, but not very accuate.  For instance, Arithmancy was very low on my list because I said I hated math, but that doesn't mean I'm not good at it.  I wouldn't be surprised at all if Arithmancy was my best subject, actually.

I agree with you, Dawn.  This is not a very accurate test as far as subjects go.  It said the Dark Arts would be my best, which would probably be true (name one Slytherin who doesn't do at least a little covert searching into that subject).  However, it had Astronomy listed pretty high as well, which would not be true in the slightest.  Trust me; I'm actually taking an astronomy class, and I'd much rather be in potions or transfiguration.  As for divination... let's not go there.  The subject isn;t even worth discussing, let alone pursuing.  Bad test, innaccurate.

I agree.  I got Dark Arts, followed by DADA, then Flying, then Astronomy.  I hate astronomy.

However, I do like my top 3.   >:D
