Over-editing much? Fun, more like it.
This is actually inspired by the book Divergent by Veronica Roth. The book is set in a dystopian future, after the fall of the world. The community depicted is split up into five groups, factions, based on why they believe the world fell apart. Abnegation blames selfishness, so they value selflessness. Amity blames violence, so they value peace. Candor blames duplicity, so they value truth. Erudite blames ignorance, so they value knowledge. And Dauntless blames cowardice, so they value courage and bravery above all else.
The people are separated into whichever faction they have more aptitude for. There is one other category, however, that is considered dangerous. Divergent. This means you have aptitude for more than one faction, more than one way of thinking. This is considered dangerous, because if the leaders can't tell what you're thinking, they can't predict your actions. The book follows the main character, Beatrice Prior through her exploits, the aptitude test, choosing a faction, and initiation of the chosen faction.
It's a good read and I wholeheartedly reccomend it.
By the way, I am Divergent, with an aptitude for Erudite, Dauntless, Abnegation, and Amity.
I have chosen Dauntless.
"One choice can transform you. One choice can destroy you."
