I am Divergent

I was finally brave.

I borrowed the book. A book that, like The Hunger Games, is rather...controversial.

I have come to several conclusions.

First of all, I really need to form all opinions based upon my own research and collected information, not upon other peoples...opinions.

Second, I need to read more dystopian fantasy.


I read it because so many people were talking about it. Some said it was good. Others said it was bad. I sat in the middle and watched from the fence, like usual. {I find myself on that fence a lot, actually.}

The story is about a girl who lives in a word divided by factions. You live in your faction, you breath your faction, you are your faction.

Unless you are...Divergent.

Divergence is when you have mixed desires. You can be anything. You are not easily understood...or controlled. Because you have a mind of your own, a mind that can wander between many things. You are not just brave {Dauntless}, you are smart {Erudite}. You are not just selfless {Abnegation}, you are peaceful {Amity}...

You understand.

I'm not going to give you a full rundown of the book. I won't spoil it for you if you haven't read it. If you have, you know all you need to know.

But I have come to the conclusion that I am very Divergent. Different, a little confused, and definitely not what people expect me to be. Sometimes I can be very withdrawn. Sometimes I am excessively outgoing. I am perplexing and I know it.

I don't relish it.

It is me.

But at least I can put my finger on a name now.

From now on, if anyone wants to know what my personality type is...I will tell them Divergent.

Hopefully they will understand.

If not.


It will only add to the mystery that is, ;)


  1. I'm Divergent too! (I took a test and everything. Ah-ha!) I LOOOOVE this book. Insurgent is even better, though, and I'm dying until Allegiant comes out. Aaaah. The feels.

    1. Hahaha. Of course you did. ;) :P {I love you.}
      I haven't read that one yet, but I am excited to get to!!! :D I know I will be too. LOL! We can live in pain together. :D

  2. I'm Erudite. I've always felt like I have a very definite personality. For example, I get the same personality-test result every time I take any of them.

    Howver, I totally get where you're coming from. My personality is very logical and cool-headed, but I'm also very creative and in-tune with my emotions. (Personality tests suggested otherwise. Don't trust them.) And by the way, this phrase: "Different, a little confused, and definitely not what people expect me to be" was lovely. The thing is, we're all a little divergent. We all stand out in some way, whether we make the choice to or not.
    Loved this post, Caitria. :)

    1. Wow! That is neat! Definite personalities are cool, because you never have to wonder who you are or what you are going to do.

      Yeah, isn't it interesting!!! Aw, thank you!!! :D Yes, very, very true!!

      Thank you for your beautiful comment!! It made me very happy! :D


I'm sincerely wondering if you are going to comment. Given you just read that blog post (or maybe skim read, at best, or maybe you've just skipped to the bottom). But, either way, whether you read it or not, NOW you have no doubt that I am crazy, are wondering if I am worthy of your time, and if it even matters that you say something. BUT, it does!!! Drop me a line! Can't tell you I will always respond coherently, but I WILL respond! And the comments... Well, they rather make my days. <3
