Explore the use of the Five Factor Personality Theory in Veronica Roth's Divergent. Disucss how the factions line up with these personality factors, and the corrupt/dysfunctional relationships that form from developing only one personality facet. Go indepth into the Darwinian approach of the Dauntless training, its affect on the mental health of their initiates and members, its shift from heroic bravery to corruption and brutality, and the imagery in the book. Take a personality test and find out your faction!
