I think, personally, that my strength would be in Charms. It's for people who are imaginative, since the rules of Charms aren't steadfast, and so I think it's for the creative types. Also, most of my charries are Charms strengths, besides Joy. Joy is Transfiguration, surprisingly. My weakness, I think, is Conjuring and Summoning.

True story: I try to use the Force to do a lot of things, and it almost never works. Remote control won't levitate, window won't go down. And chairs won't move for me. I guess I'm not good at C/S.

It's not easy to pick a superpower, you know. ;)

BUT ... I have an answer for you. It's somewhat peculiar but ... I think this one magical field is underrated. Yes, I am talking about Divination. I mean I would like to know what would happen in the near future. Maybe seeing auras and figure out the person in front of me. The whole seeing and interacting with ghosts thing might be an issue but ... I can deal with that, I suppose. :)

Weakness ... It would probably be Conjuring/Summoning. I can see myself preferring to get over to the object in question and get it myself instead of using Summoning. I know, it's an extra effort to do that but eh ... :)

Difficult question.

My strength would probably be Transfiguration. I enjoy tinkling with creative design A LOT and there's a small aesthetic living inside of me, I'm afraid.

My weakness would then be Divination, mostly because I wouldn't believe in it; it seems such a very fickle subject with very unstable powers, and I just don't feel like I would have much patience for it.

Divination would probably be my strong point- I'm pretty empathic.  People are amazed when I shake their hand or put my hand on their shoulder, and then tell them exactly where they hurt.  Because I start to hurt there (or sometimes the mirror of the place).  My wife tells me I should have been a masseur, but I disagree- I'd be so tense all the time!  I don't like giving backrubs because I end up with all the pain.

Charms is pretty high, too- in the sense that I tend to get what I want when I ask for it.  But that might be because I don't ask for something unless I know I can have it. So Divination again.

Transfiguration is probably my weakness- things like color and design don't really interest me.  This is why Irma is strong in Transfig- something for me to explore without actually having the talent.

I would like Summoning/Conjuring to be my magical strength. Maybe I'm lazy, but I love the idea of sitting on the couch and having whatever I want brought to me. I could also Create things I need with a pop! :)

My weakness would be Charms. The common magical spells would just be lost on me. :)

My magical strength would probably be Transfiguration, because I've always been fairly skilled with taking something and turning it into something else. As much as I adore Charms, it wouldn't be my strength at all. lol

My weakness would surely be Divination, because I am awful at playing the lottery. (Just kidding; I just suck at telling the future. ;) )

I would have the magical strength of Transfiguration I imagine. I have always been interested in that as a class, and I have a fascination in that and alchemy. My weakness would most likely be Divination. I've never had a good sixth sense, so I'd be terrible at Div.

I think mine would be Divination. It typically doesn't get the most notice on the boards, but it suits me more, OOCly. I tend to be able to sense emotions easy, and connect to those emotions of people as well. It's easy for me to read a situation and figure out what's going on, without a lot of information.

My weakness would probably be Charms. It's just straightforward, and I think it has a little less creativity than transfiguration or summoning. For that reason, I might actually find it boring, and just not focus on it much, making it a weakness for me.

Divination would probably be my strength. I'm actually quite good at reading people/moods/situations. My weakness would be Conjuring/Summoning. Making things out of thin air with ridiculously long spells just seems silly.

I think I'd want to be good at Divination, but my natural strength would probably be Transfiguration. Weak in Charms, perhaps, since it seems a bit too straightforward for my tastes.

My strength would be CHARMS because I'm fairly charming! Get it get it No I think it's because I'm good at thinking of solutions to things?

My weakness would be CONJURING AND SUMMONING for sure because I'm always losing stuff. Sometimes IRL I say "accio phone" like I wish that was a thing? Normally I find things by purposefully looking for something else. OTL

I don't even know.

Maybe Divination would be a strength, but it could also easily be a weakness. I have such mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I find it utterly fascinating, but sometimes I'm far too logical for it. Charms, though, could also be a strength. It's straight-forward and I like that about it. It's also super practical. Transfiguration would probably be a weakness.

I would probably both excel and suck at Divination. It probably won't make sense to me much. My brain attempts to predict the future on a constant basis, but it's also somewhat rational in doing so. It'd be nice to be prepared for what's coming next but I suppose it'll be very tiring, make you paranoid and life won't be as much fun, would it?

I know that I would be good enough at Divination, just good enough but not that good. I tend to problematize things, try to see the bigger picture at all times, and I always try to make sense of everything that my comprehension cannot immediately grasp because it seems almost irrational. I would be decent at it, but my strength would be in Charms. I know for fact that I would be that one student that will probably know all the charms by heart and has practiced them so often that they would eventually work. I am a whole-hogger of the worst kind, so that when I put my mind to something and I want to make it work, that is exactly what I do. And I think that I would want to be good at charms because they tend to make life a whole lot easier.

I know for fact that I would suck at Conjuring & Summoning. If I want to fetch something, I can fetch it myself, thank you very much. And if I want to have something that I don't have, I will just deal with it.

It's a toss-up between Charms and Divination for strength, but I'm going with Divination because that's what I first thought of, and it feels just a bit more correct. Empathy, interpretation, intuition, dreams, subtlety, symbolism, undertones, mind magic — up my alley, I think.

My weak point would be Transfiguration because it's too heavy and rigid and MATHEMATICAL AGHJKLDJSHKLHJGDJHDLJKDKSGJGSHDJKDLHJSJKDLSJGD PHYSICS-Y SJKAFLGDSDSKLJ: for me.

My strength would maybe be Charms because I'd be most motivated to try hard at that so that I could Limax people probably. And my weakness would probably be Divination... I'm not all that observant.

I would LOVE for my strength to be transfiguration because bleaching and dying my hair as often as I do is a lot of work and money, and if instead I could just commutati rosaceus to my roots, that would be so bomb.

My weakness would probably conjuring and summoning, cause i'd probably bring up the wrong thing or something :/
