1. The Abnegation: they are really brave in their selflessness. Like Tris demonstrated at the end of Abnegation, they are selfless to the point of willingness to give their own lives for someone else. This ultimate sacrifice requires bravery so great that it cannot be described fully in words.
2. The Dauntless: the bravery of the Dauntless is much more visible than those of the other factions. Their bravery is physical; they are willing to put their bodies in great danger and aren't afraid to flaunt their bravery.
3. The Amity: though it may not seem like it, the Amity do have bravery. It does take bravery to be kind to even the cruelest of people. It takes bravery to keep a smile on your face when you're sad, or disappointed, or angry.
4. The Candor: It also does require bravery to be honest all the time. (Remember the story of George Washington and the cherry tree anyone?) Being honest means confessing your wrongdoings and mistakes, and that requires great courage.
Stop waiting for Prince Charming. Get out and find him. The poor idiot may be stuck in a tree or something.
One example: Two young women at a store trying on dresses, and one tries on a dress that doesn't work well with her body. Asking her friend's opinion, it would be better to say something like "I think we should try another one" or "I'm not sure about this one, let's see if they have something better for your body type." Rather than, "gosh! You're hips are so big, I'm surprised you even fit into that dress!" or "that dress would look good if you'd lose a couple of pounds!"
That's a very minor example, but you can see how the truth can be too much if you're not careful. In one situation, the woman trying out the dress may agree with her friend more easily and look for another dress. While the second scenario, the first woman could be so heartbroken because she is already self-conscious of the way she looks and doesn't want to continue looking.
As I said before, telling the truth can be brave as long as you are aware of who you are telling the truth to and how you are delivering the truth.
