Flexibility and Size of Wand
Other important elements for your wand are its flexibility and size.
The ideal is that the size is proportional to your own size but the long wands often correspond to the wizards with strong personalities. The average is between 22 to 35 centimeters.
As far as flexibility is concerned, it mainly symbolizes the ability to adapt to changes. The harder a wand is, the straighter you are in your boots, but that does not mean that you are closed-minded, you are simply full of beliefs!
