Divergence is the tendency to diverge from the norm which is, in this case, the mindset and way of thinking the factions are meant for. If you get a faction choice of more than one from the results of your aptitude test, you are considered Divergent.

FactionsEdit

LeadersEdit

Faction leaders want their members to think and act a certain way, according to how their faction states. For most, it is easy to adapt.

MembersEdit

The factions have conditioned their members to think and act a certain way, and they've made their members find a pattern of thought that works and stays that way.

DivergentEdit

The Divergents' minds are said to "move in several different directions" and can’t be confined to one way of thinking, meaning they cannot be controlled. They also are special and will be killed if they are found out.

ReasonEdit

For this reason, the faction leaders are terrified of their ability and see them as threats who will always cause trouble for them. The only known factions so far which have taken action against the Divergent are Erudite and Dauntless.

Known FactionsEdit

  • Erudite
  • For those who don't make it through initiation, they are transferred to being Factionless, which means that they are homeless.

MajorityEdit

The majority of people born Divergent are from Abnegation. But not all, considering Uriah is Divergent and he is Dauntless born.

FactionlessEdit

There is also a high population of Divergents in the factionless, as someone who has aptitude for multiple factions may find it hard to adapt to one way of thinking: so they either drop out so they don't get murdered, or simply fail initiation.

SerumsEdit

So far, there are two ways to determine if someone is Divergent. The first way is the aptitude test. Individuals who are Divergent will receive inconclusive test results. The second way is to determine which people are unaffected by simulation serums.

DivergenceEdit

Divergence is when someone takes the aptitude test to determine the best faction for himself or herself, but instead of the usual one faction, two or more come up as a result. The most factions a Divergent child has ever gotten is three, when Beatrice "Tris" Prior received Abnegation, Erudite and Dauntless as her test result.

SimulationsEdit

Being Divergent in Chicago is considered dangerous. Since a Divergent mind cannot adapt to one certain way of thinking (at least for long), faction leaders are terrified as to what Divergents are capable of. One common characteristic among Divergents is they are all (in knowledge) able to control simulations. In other words, they are fully aware that they are in a simulation, and they can calm down or do whatever it takes to move on to the next scenario or fully stop the simulation.

Management of SerumsEdit

Four managed to find out that Tris was Divergent in her second fear simulation. In the simulation, she was trapped inside a glass box with water rising, entrapping her. She was able to break the glass, whereas others would find other means to escape the box. (We do not know how others could escape the glass box if their fears involve drowning or being fit into tight spaces—or both.) However, Four has most likely assumed this before the running of Tris's test. (It is assumed he suspected this before, as he is also Divergent.)

AllegiantEdit

Main article: Allegiant

It is revealed during Allegiant that the Divergents are actually individuals who, after generations, have recovered from genetic damage caused to their ancestors through genetic manipulation. By testing his DNA, it is revealed that while Tobias is resistant to simulations, his DNA is still damaged, proving that he is not in fact Divergent.

Known DivergentsEdit

UnknownEdit

  • Matthew 
  • David

TriviaEdit

  • Since Divergence affects DNA, it can be passed down through families. This can especially be seen in Tris, as her mother was also Divergent.
  • A partial example can also be seen in Four. Since his father is Divergent, Four gained resistance to simulations; however, his DNA is not undamaged and thus he cannot truly be Divergent.

Foot NotesEdit

  • Being Divergent in the society that Veronica Roth wrote is usually a death sentence.
  • There are only a few people that are Divergent and they are listed on this page.
  • Another possible Divergent is Natalie.

    • he might not be diveregnt but do u know that he can be like Divergents because of this thing in him. It was something like that in Allegiant
    • I personally think he is Divergent, but something happened and it damaged his DNA. So he is like a damaged Divergent.
