Hey my lovely fellow Divergent fans!

Had a question that I would love to hear your story on!

How has the Divergent series impacted YOU?

Did you start thinking obsessively about how you could be more selfless like Abnegation? Try to make Dauntless cake? Start studying like an Erudite? Try out gardening like Amity? Start training like you were preparing to become Dauntless?

I WANNA KNOW!

Candor doesnt get any fandom love like this i swear lol!

I actually didn't realize I was obsessed with the trilogy until I finished Allegiant. Well, I obviously knew that those books had changed me somehow, but I didn't know how.
I mean, now I try to be selfless, and every time I act selfishly I scold myself and think about the Abnegation side of Tris; I try to be kinder and merciful as Amity, bc I'm always harsh and mean with everyone I love, and this needs to stop; I try to be good at school as Erudite, bc knowledge is too important and I'm completely neglecting my grades; I try to be honest bc I think lies will destroy us, and I wanna be trustworthy; above all I try to be brave, because I'd join Dauntless, so I want to be able to control my fears irl.
Okay, looooong answer, deal with me, I had to confide
Hi! Well, perhaps it impacted me differently than all the other people because I'm older than most readers? Idk, Im 24 by the way. Well, the book reinforced the idea of facing my fears, I used to be scared of a lot of things because of my anxiety but I have almost overcome it completly. Then it also taught me than we don't always have to stay the same, Tris changed so much during the books and she turned out to be tougher than everybody thought. At my age, now entering completly into adulthood (kind of) I feel like I'm changing, I have graduated less than a year ago from university and the liberty to do whatever I want with my life makes me wonder if my personality is also changing. The changes in Tris encouraged me to embrace this changes in my life and personality.

I don't feel I'm like her exactly, but I do feel a deep resemblance in the fact that we both look sweat, delicate and naive but that we actually are brave and not childish at all :)
That's really inspiring! Thanks for sharing!

That's so cool! Don't ever be afraid to face your fears head-on and be who you are!

Actually divergent has been very positive for me because I realised that I'm part Candor and I don't really respect people's privacy so I've been trying to get better at that.

I would not say that it had some impact on me, well, it is just a book, not the worst, but also not the best, just to read it one time if you have some free time. My friend advised me to read it, she is obsessed with this serie she read a huge amount of essay on services which is connected somehow with divergent.

I started reading the book after finishing Hunger Games series...my friend suggested it to me. I thought of it as a boring book by its name but when I actually started reading Divergent I couldn't stop myself from going on...AND when she jumps and there she sees HIM...I knew I am going the right way. I started falling in love with Four gradually...with the way Tris described him and all. At the end I knew I had LOVED it well may be because Tris was exactly of my age back then which made it more comparable to me. Then came Insurgent which was much more exciting, surprising, hurting and adorable. I have no idea where, when and how did I fall in love with the book, its characters and...Tris and Tobias. And then my world actually stopped spinning at the almost end of Allegiant when she goes in the Weapons Lab and all of it...When she tells Caleb to say to Tobias that she didn't wanted to leave him. I just could't read any further. I knew its gonna be Tobias who kills me now when he'll know about...HER. But on insistence I did read it till the very end...all nail biting, heavy breaths and of course tears welling into my eyes after every word he spoke. I just survived the epilogue and when he goes zip lining for HER oblivious to all his fears. The person he became with HER is worth being. Tris changed me too. I have changed my perspective of seeing the world. Now I see is as she did...She is but the one who gave me the strength to overcome the feeling of being swallowed by the earth when she...dies. I remembered to...BE BRAVE. Love you Tris and Tobias and Veronica. Thank you.

I did not agree that creating these fractions people got rid of the evil, because a clear example was how many parents abandoned their children just as soon as the children move to another faction, then I could not understand how there is no harm if some fraction bitterly hate each other ...I even wrote college paper on depression, need to know how can world exist without evil.
And then somehow all at once it was clear and understandable, and I just simply fell in love with this book with all my heart, I have met there a lot of clever sayings, felt that close to me.

Suddenly, I wanted to move forward, to act to achieve my goals ...

I might say that this series convinced me that I am Candor , and thereby motivated me to start my training as a paralegal. But I think that I might have still chosen this career path regardless. Also now I tend to think of people in terms of the characteristics of the various factions , and how they compare to them. Also more trivially , I take notice of what people wear , and wonder if their personalities match their apparent style of clothing , even though I don't suppose that all that many have even read the books. 

Well, I am still obsessing over how I could possibly zipline off the top of the Hancock building or finding someone who will teach me to throw knives and shoot a gun. I think my martial arts training covers the hand-to-hand combat portion. Also, when we turn 16 my friends and I are gonna stage a mock Choosing Ceremony and mock initiations for each faction. It's gonna be epic!

Oh dude, that's how it started for me!
