    Do you think you would be able to be as good a house elf as Winky. Being subservient to the family you are employed by. Or would you be more like Dobby wanting your personal freedom?

    :nono: I can't believe you'd say that. lolol

    I don't understand how a house elf could be so subservient. Maybe it's only possible if you're born into the life. But I'd still imagine more elves wanting their freedom like Dobby did.

    Since we are humans with our sense of freedom and self it would
    make it very difficult for us to be house elves
