Is Harry Potter Divergent?
SPOILER ALERT: For those of you who have not seen the Divergent or have not read the books, this article will have minute spoilers.
Divergent is an individual who tests into two or more factions. Ultimately they have to choose one, and that choice will define them.
Hogwarts students aren’t put into a simulation to determine their houses, but the Sorting Hat does analyze their minds to find where to place them. Harry has gifts that would put him in Slytherin but a desire for anything but. The hat puts him in Gryffindor, meaning he also has an aptitude for bravery (which he proves throughout the books/movies). Does this make him Divergent? And if so, which factions do you believe he would have tested for? Why?
The same goes for Hermione. The Sorting Hat considered putting her in Ravenclaw but chose Gryffindor. Is she Divergent? Which factions do you believe she would test for and why?
Looking forward to a discussion Erudite and Ravenclaw would be proud of. See you all in the comments section. And just for fun, which faction(s) would you test into? Which would you choose? Why?
