About This Quiz

The "Divergent" book series had sold more than 10 million copies by 2014 after the full trilogy had ended. That's immensely popular for any book series and the kind of thing an author can only wish for. And on top of that, it became an incredibly popular series of films that managed to pull in a whopping $765 million at the box office. The time was right for the series to leap into the young adult fiction craze with other incredible series like "The Hunger Games" and "Harry Potter" doing so incredibly well. And you better believe audiences liked them! 

The world that "Divergent" presented to us was an unusual one, a controlled and rigid one that demanded conformity. That's really what spoke to people, too. Because who hasn't had those moments when you feel like someone is trying to tell you who to be? And at the same time, who hasn't wanted to be a part of a group of people who accepted them? To find a place where they fit in and are appreciated? It has incredible upsides and clear downsides and really makes you think about who you are and where you fit in. Speaking of, it's time to find out where you might fit into that world! Take the quiz and see.
