A new study came out that placed each state into a Hogwarts House and New Jersey’s pick could not be more accurate.
Whether you’ve read the books, watched the movies, visited the theme parks, or even none of the above, you’ve heard of Harry Potter.
If you live in the muggle world (that’s a Harry Potter reference) and aren’t familiar with the series, Harry Potter attends a wizard school called Hogwarts that sorts each student into a “house”Throughout the school year, you have the option to earn or lose points for your house.
The House Cup is awarded to the house with the highest number of points at the end of each year.

There are four types of houses, each with its own personality.
GryffindorIt is represented by a Lion and is known as “bravery, daring, nerve, and chivalry.” States that fell into this house are Utah, Michigan, and Connecticut, that’s it.
HufflepuffIt is represented by a badger, and is described as “hard-working, dedicated, patient, loyal, and plays fair.” Doesn’t sound like New Jersey, right? This house includes Idaho, Wyoming, Kansas, and others.
RavenclawThe eagle is the symbol of this species and it is described as “intelligent, knowledgeable, curious, creative and witty.”
The last house is SlytherinThe snake is the symbol of the snake and is known as “ambitious, shows leadership, self-preservation, cunning, and resourcefulness.”

All of the antagonists are in the Slytherin house, so I assumed that New Jersey was there.
According to Dish Network has conducted a surveyNew Jersey was put out and is now in the Ravenclaw House. It makes perfect sense.
Let’s take politics out of this (that would definitely place us in Slytherin), all different types of New Jerseyans have at least one of the character traits. Have you ever met someone from New Jersey that didn’t think they “knew it all”?
This survey consisted of three questions.
A Google Trend search will show you which of the four houses each state was looking for.
You were wrong to think Gryffindor is the most popular house in the country.
The majority of the nation, 27 countries, is seated in the Slytherin House. It’s amazing.
