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.


4. Candor

Candor- the truthful. 

Brutal honesty is what they taught us- how it can be useful and dangerous at the same time. It would be good, for example, for political and government figures to be Candor- everything would be much simpler, with no deception. 

The truth is a very powerful thing. Secrets told to someone you're close to can be a way of venting your feelings, but it could also be a way to tell them you trust them. If someone isn't in on the secret and finds out, that's where the danger comes in. 

"People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets," Tris says, and she's right. People create a mask for themselves- Tobias, for one. Even our identities on here are something to hide behind, a way to be someone we're not. I could meet you somewhere, and talk to you, and you'd never realize I was Raven, because the Movellas me and the real me are separate people. 

That may not exactly be lying, but it's still concealing part of the truth. It's hard to be yourself, but it's harder to accept who you are and embrace the real you. 

Truth has power and danger. Treat it wisely.
