I'll get this discussion going with an intro. Hi, I'm Alice and I'm a Ravenclaw through and through (it's what all the Sorting tests say, including Pottermore!). "Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure!"
This does not come as a surprise to me because I have always been something of a bookworm, nerd, and geek. Learning weird, kind of archaic stuff is my jam, and cleverness delights me - word play, clever plots, clever characters.
But let's be real, I would also be that Ravenclaw who can't get back into the tower because she can't figure out the daily riddle. I might like riddles but solving them is NOT my strong suit. I'd probably just wait for someone and go in with them - which is maybe the smartest thing of all?
