What the Factions Taught Us

A collection of the lessons we learned from the factions. Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, Candor, and Erudite. These are my opinions and you're free to have your own. Comment and I might add them. Also: May contain spoilers. You have been warned.


1. Abnegation

Abnegation- the selfless. 


Perhaps the easiest to explain- they will do anything for others, whether it's giving up their seat on the bus to even dying for them. *sob* Abnegation taught us to think about others, and also about sacrifice. 

Putting others first is hard, and that's why Tris transfers in the first place. She's right- the Abnegation lifestyle is beautiful but nearly unrealistic. They're almost too extreme. You need to think of others, but it takes a very strong-willed person to do that. Maybe that's why there's so many Abnegation Divergents- the power of will.

Self-sacrifice has enormous power, but again takes incredible strength to do. This faction, perhaps the most thoughtful of them all, knows that better than any other. Sacrificing yourself is true selflessness. 

Not everyone should take that extreme- sacrifice has to be necessary to be actual sacrifice. Maybe you should give up some of your time, or try living a little simpler- any bit makes a difference. 

Abnegation also taught me about love, and the extremes a person will go to for someone they love.
