    Which Divergent Faction Would You Choose?

    Advertisements
    I just finished the Divergent series and I'm curious...which faction would you choose? Here are the factions for those that aren't familiar with the books:

    Factions - Divergent Wiki
    Abnegation (The Selfless)

    “I choose to turn away from my reflection, to rely not on myself but on my brothers and sisters, to project always outward until I disappear. ”

    –Abnegation Manifesto

    The faction that values selflessness in the service of others. These are ones who do community service.

    The dystopic society of Chicago is ruled by a council of fifty people, composed entirely of representatives from Abnegation because their faction is incorruptible, due to their commitment to selflessness. Abnegations color is grey. They must wear all grey loose fitting clothes to not attract attention to themselves. They can also wear a plain watch.

    Erudite (The Intelligent)

    “Ignorance is defined not as stupidity but as lack of knowledge. Lack of knowledge inevitably leads to lack of understanding. Lack of understanding leads to a disconnect among people with differences. Disconnection among people with differences leads to conflict. Knowledge is the only logical solution to the problem of conflict. Therefore, we propose that in order to eliminate conflict, we must eliminate the disconnect among those with differences by correcting the lack of understanding that arises from ignorance with knowledge. ”

    –Erudite Manifesto

    "Bookcases line the walls on either side of me, but they seem to be decorative more than anything, because computers occupy the tables in the center of the room, and no one is reading. The Erudites stare at screens with tense eyes, focused."

    According to the norms of the faction, it is dictated that a faction member must wear at least one blue article of clothing at a time, because blue causes the body to release calming chemicals which attest to their saying, a calm mind is a clear mind. It is also noted that Erudites are big on speeches and that Eloquence are for them.

    Dauntless (The Brave)

    “We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another... We believe in shouting for those who can only whisper, in defending those who cannot defend themselves. ”

    –Dauntless Manifesto

    Dauntless are those who are brave, fearless almost. They strive to become fearless and indestructibility. The Dauntless are those who guard the fence, making sure no one gets in or out, and are the best soldiers.


    Amity (The Peaceful)

    “ Give freely, trusting that you will be given what you need... Do not be angry. The opinions of others cannot damage you... The wrong is past. You must let it rest where it lies... You must no longer think cruel thoughts. Cruel thoughts lead to cruel words, and hurt you as much as they hurt their target. ”

    –Amity Manifesto

    The faction who values peace above else. The ones who try to make everything peaceful. Members of the Amity Faction are dressed in red or yellow. Every time Tris sees them, they look kind, loving and free. Amity children are seen playing hand clapping games and singing songs. They mostly have a laid back happy go lucky attitudes and are viewed as artists. Yet despite that, Amity has given Chicago understanding counselors and caretakers. Robert Black is known to have chosen this faction. He readily hugs Tris and notes of her bruises. He told her to go back to Abnegation and that they would make an exception of her but she refused. He says she should be happy. A trait of every Amity that he wanted for her but she rebuked him and says, “the goal of my life isn’t just... to be happy.”

    Candor (The Honest)

    “Truth makes us transparent. Truth makes us strong. Truth makes us inextricable. ”

    –Candor Manifesto

    The faction that values honesty. The ones who can’t even tell one little lie. A member of the Candor faction can be recognized because of his black suit and white tie, a Candor standard uniform. They see the truth as black and white so that is what they wear. Through the years, the Candor Faction provided the people with trustworthy and sound leaders in law. Candor children are seen to make wide gestures with their hands and appear to be arguing. They are very truthful and would even frankly and tactlessly say what they feel. The candor initiation does not utilize simulation but utilize lie detectors tests and truth serum. An initiate sits in front of everyone and are asked a load of really personal questions. According to Christina, the theory is that if the person reveals all his secrets, he has no desire to lie about anything because the worst is already in the open.

    Amity - I loved their farming systems! I would have a hard time picking between Amity, and Erudite or Dauntless, though.

    This poll might turn out to be really boring I almost chose Erudite, but their always rational ways are a major pitfall.

    I don't think I would want to spend all of my time learning and studying.

    I'd go with Amity too, though I love learning, so Erudite would be a close second. I think knowledge without compassion can be really dangerous/harmful (as events in the book show) so that's a major reason why I wouldn't pick Erudite.

    I think my posts here are a good indicator. I'd choose candor. But Erudite is a very, very close second. I love learning, even if just for the sake of learning, and my intellectual curiosity would make me a good Erudite. Hmm, now that I'm typing, I'm rethinking my decision.

    I guess I'd just let the tests decide for me, and go with that!
