JK Rowling’s writing about Ravenclaw makes it pretty clear that the students sorted into Hogwarts’ cleverest house really don’t miss a trick.
Witty and insightful, Ravenclaws are at the top of their game when it comes to working things out and making smart decisions.
And that’s exactly why poor old Harry Potter doesn’t fit the bill, as evidenced by one VERY clever tweeter.
Harry wasn't chosen for Ravenclaw because he tried to catch the Hogwarts letters from the air instead of taking one from the floor

Wit beyond measure really is man’s greatest treasure, innit?
