RTW: What Divergent Faction Are You?

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where the contributors over at YA Highway post a weekly writing- or reading-related question. Then readers answer it on their own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This week's question: What faction are you?

Oh man. I love this. Can I tell you how much I love this? I love it so much I was working on my INSURGENT review this morning (which I'll share probably next week). Although (like most of us) I'd probably be divergent, I don't like to admit my Erudite leanings. So in the choosing ceremony I'd totally go Dauntless.

Me channeling Dauntless the Friday before release day.
I posted my reasons why here, but here are some of my favorite dauntless quotes:

"We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another."

"Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it."

"A brave man acknowledges the strength of others."

"I have a theory that selflessness and bravery aren't all that different."

  1. Hahah, I love that you went all out and dressed up and everything! & the fact you choose dauntless even though you were told you were erudite shows you belong there. A rebel until the end!

    1. Ha thanks! We had a work event this day that I was able to go in costume to, so I used it as a chance to be Dauntless.

  2. I think the quotes demonstrate that these factions cannot stand alone.

    1. So true. I think that's probably the point Roth was going for.

    1. Because they're evil! Okay maybe not all of them. Enough of them.

  4. I admire the Dauntless and would love to be counted among their ranks, but I'm a total chicken. I'd end up in Erudite because I'm also a total nerd.

  5. I love your Dauntless photograph more every time I look at it. :) I know I'd fall into Amity... I'm a hippie at heart.
