About This Quiz

If there's one thing the world's young (and not-so-young) adults can't get enough of, it's dystopian novels. Readers just seem to have a soft spot for teenagers fighting to the death in a post-apocalyptic society. Take Divergent as an example. Fiction fanatics devoured the first book in the trilogy almost as soon as it hit shelves back in 2011. The buzz around the books was immediate, and conversations about the novel often turned to the question: Which Divergent faction do you really belong in?

As a refresher (or in case you've never read the series yourself), the characters in Divergent are living in the ruins of Chicago and working to rebuild society. In the hopes of a more organized (read: easily controllable) existence, the population is divided into factions based on their personalities. The law requires all 16-year-olds to take an aptitude test to determine which of the five factions they are best suited to join. The factions are Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless and Erudite. 

Of the five Divergent factions, which one do you really belong in? Discover your place in author Veronica Roth's imagined society. Take this quiz to find out where your Divergent heart lies. Like the first task on Dauntless initiation day (jumping onto a moving train!), the results may shock you.
