Divergent Aptitude Test: Which Faction Are You?

Take our Divergent aptitude test! In Divergent, sixteen-year-olds take an aptitude test on a given day every year that sorts them into one of five factions.Divergent Aptitude Test

The five factions are Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite, and each represent a valued virtue of humanity.

Based on this test, teens are allowed to either stay with their families within the faction where they grew up, or leave them forever to join the faction that suits them best.

In Divergent, a teenager named Tris receives inconclusive results from her aptitude test. She could potentially fit into the Abnegation, Erudite, or Dauntless factions. This makes her "divergent," but she must keep it a secret or risk being killed.

However, you may also become power-hungry, as your intelligence leads you to believe you are always right.

Mostly B's

You belong to Candor. People consider your extremely trustworthy and fair. You tend to make good decisions and are good at detecting lies. Though you are always truthful and sincere, some would say you are honest to a fault. You may sometimes hurt people's feelings with the truth, but you believe people should be happy to hear an honest opinion instead of a lie.

Mostly C's

You belong to Amity. You are an extremely peaceful person, and value friendship and understanding above all else.  You strongly dislike conflict, which might make it difficult for you to resolve issues with others. You may go out of your way to not get in a disagreement with others.

Mostly D's

You belong to Abnegation. You always put others ahead of yourself, and think that nothing is worse than selfishness. You often forget about your own needs because you are busy with the needs of not just friends and family, but also strangers. You are likely quiet and don't like to call attention to yourself.

Mostly E'

You belong to Dauntless. You are a thrill-seeker, and aren't scared of many of the things most people fear. You are likely physically fit, and adept at sports or martial arts. You also believe that problems should be faced head-on, and that many issues can be solved by force.

A Tie
