Not to mention unpretentious.

Similar to how the four elements depend on each other and are necessary to create and support life here on Earth, the balance between the four houses are essential for maintaining a decent education system for little wizards! :D

I believe Jo herself even drew parallels between those two subjects.

Gryffindor - fire

Slytherin - water

Hufflepuff - earth

Ravenclaw - air

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_(classical_element)

In contrast to what I just said - Maybe this is why we're the best.

"In traditional cultures, air is often seen as a universal power or pure substance. Its fundamental importance to life can be seen in words such as aspire,inspireperspire, and spirit, all derived from the Latin spirare ("to breathe")."

Lqtm, slippery. :D I don't know much about Greek philosophy, but I am a pretty Sirius astrology nerd. You know - stars n' stuff.

In the Zodiac, fire (Gryffindor) signs (Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo) are emotional, volatile types who are adventurous, powerful, and often inspirational. In one word, fire is action.

Earth (Hufflepuff) signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) are in constant touch with the material world. Always practical, they are stimulated by the tangible, elegant, and luxurious. In one word, earth is sensation.

Air (Ravenclaw) signs (Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra) are mental creatures desirous of contact, communication, and relationship. They are the original thinkers, and the "bearers of human news." In one word, air is thought.

Water (Slytherin) signs (Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer) are silent and mysterious types who perceive what others cannot. These people "have the potential for the depths of darkness or the heights of mysticism and art." In one word, water is emotion.

Here's another link. It's basically comparing the houses and the elements. Which is good, because I had trouble grasping the whole Water/Slytherin and Earth/Hufflepuff connections. http://www.lelandra.com/tarotbook/harrypotterelements.htm

@Casey LaFalce

Wow! THat's cool!!!

:D Thanks! I love sharing my star knowledge. It's reassuring. Know I know that those hours spent on Zodiac books instead of Biology books were not wasted. XD
Our insistence on solving problems using logic and reason rather than submission, aimless action, or circumvention of the rules

@Jason

Nice!!!

I think the reason that I'm a Ravenclaw, and why I think it's a better house than say Slytherin or Gryffindor, is because we do crave knowledge. We want to learn about the world, and people. As John always says, imagine people complexly, and I think that Ravenclaws are more prone to doing that, next to Hufflepuffs, because we're not interested in trivial things.
