Slytherins often become dark witches or wizards, are ambitious, and have a love for reputation, particularly their status of being pure- or half-blooded. Ravenclaws are often wise, eccentric, and make considerable life accomplishments. Hufflepuffs are known for being trustworthy, hardworking, and humble. Many of Hogwart's professors have attended Hogwarts in their youth, and associate themselves with the houses they were sorted into.
Filius Flitwick is the Charms professor at Hogwarts. He is also the Head of Ravenclaw House. Many witches and wizards regard Flitwick as the most talented and intelligent master of Charms. However, considering his small stature, he needed to work hard to prove himself.
His studious nature earned him the respect of the people around him, although he isn't seen showing off his power carelessly like "a baboon brandishing a stick." Instead, he mainly uses his magic to teach, cheer up his students, and protect his students throughout the story.
