Initially I thought maybe not , but later ones we have chosen our destiny we need to walk bravely in it. Tris did a remarkable job of that.

I think she did make the right choice. If you think about the limited choices of factions that are available, Dauntless does seem like the only suitable one for her- since she doesn't want it to be too peaceful, too honest, too "plain" or just too "education-based". She is brave and dares to risk her life and try out new things.

I think she made the right choice, even though it seemed crazy at first. Dauntless taught her how to be her own person and think for herself, which became useful as the story progressed. It gave her a sense of self that Abnegation was squashing so it was interesting to see her transform but still at times holding on to some of her old faction's traits that ended up serving her well.

This is a tough questions since her character technically fits none/all of the factions, meaning she portrays qualities from all of them. As with all people, I do agree that her dominate traits are more in line with the Dauntless faction. Most of her decisions are based on what she thinks is best, not necessarily the most rational choice. While this could also place her in Abnigation, her actions often involve risking her life, making the tough choice, and being a B.A. I get the impression that Abgination, like Amity, is a very peaceful faction that would not be prone to deciding on such risky behaviors.

Throwing a twist in here: had Tris chosen a different faction, would she have made different choices? Perhaps, Tris's decision making was influenced by her desire to be Dauntless and fit into the mold of how a Dauntless should act. I am not sure that she ever truly embraced being Divergent and what that means.
Journey beyond the jacket.

Though there is not a detailed description about it, Tris was definitely fascinated by the adventurous lives carried out by the people of Dauntless. I believed she followed her dream. She really worked hard towards being selected as well!

I can barely even imagine her in any other faction, unless she was undercover and playing the part. I felt Four put it perfectly when he said that while fear shuts other people down, it wakes her up. Her character was never more vibrant than when she was in the center of the action. Dauntless = the only choice

When I read the books and even when I saw the movies I was super surprised by Tris' choice of faction. It's like a totally 180 from the live she had grown up in but I can understand if the way someone grew up was seen as a negative that they might decided to go the complete opposite as an adult. Just mho.

It was totally surprising! But given her own doubts of her own character I suppose it makes sense that she made such a seemingly drastic choice.

I think she settled on the correct group decision since she fitted into the Dauntless. Start changed her by making her more grounded, more courageous and more quick witted than some time recently. It arranged her for the uprising also.
