- 558 views
Veronica Roth, author of Divergent, creates a perfectly balanced and structured society that consists of five groups divided strictly on how the brain works: Abnegation, Erudite, Dauntless, Amity, and Candor.

A mind stimulation is given to each inductee before the Choosing Ceremony to help determine where they would be most fit.
