If I had to choose which faction, I'd want to be divergent because I am all of the factions at once. I hated the factions - Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Erudite and Dauntless because they were too wierd for me. The Amity community reminds me of a Hutterite Colony. Only Tris and Tobias were real and so was Tris' mother because they were Divergent. I have to agree that the training and initiation of the Dauntless was more like torture and I'd have to be a masochist to join that faction. Fear is a terrible thing.I liked Tris aka Beatrice and Tobias but Tris' mother was too short lived. I would have liked to know more about her.
