What Is the Talking Sorting Hat?

The Sorting Hat is a magical hat from Hogwarts used to determine which of the four school houses a new student would best fit into. There are four school houses in Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff. Each school house represents something unique, such as Gryffindor being the house of bravery, and Ravenclaw being the house of intelligence. Slytherin is the house of ambition, and Hufflepuff is the house of hard work.

It is believed that Godric Gryffindor, one of the founders of Hogwarts, owned the Sorting Hat. The Sorting Hat is used during the sorting ceremony at the Start-of-Term feast. Otherwise, it is kept hidden in the headmaster’s office.

The Sorting Hat is an iconic part of the Harry Potter universe, especially since it proved critical in sending the new students to one of the four school houses. While there are doubts about the legitimacy and accuracy of the Sorting Hat in appointing new students, its authority is never in question, especially as most students are happy with the hat's choice of which school house they were assigned to.
