About This Quiz

In the world created by Veronica Roth in her "Divergent" series of novels, society has divided itself along five potential paths with a few notable but curious exceptions. Citizens, at the age of 16, must choose a Faction to join and that Faction's qualities will indicate what sort of life the person will lead.

Are you a healer? A scholar? A warrior? A truth-seeker? A peacekeeper? There's a path for you to follow that allows those qualities to shine. Of course, there are those for whom no faction will be the right fit, and they end up Factionless, doing more mundane tasks in life. And then there are those who are Divergent, who can't fit into a single box and exude the qualities of more than one Faction. Those people are the Divergent, and no one likes them. They represent a kind of chaos that could, according to the rules, threaten all of society. Heavy stuff, right?

Choosing the right Faction is essential in Divergent society, as are themes of fitting in and how you deal with authority, especially when you think they're wrong. If you're not 100% sure which Faction you might need to start in you're in luck! Our quiz can help you find the answer!
