I completely agree with you. The society in Divergent forces each person to choose just one. I think it is impossible for a person in our society to choose only one. We are taught to be selfless, compassionate, brave, etc., but we need to make the choice to act on what we are taught. I think people should strive to be all of those things. It's not just about bettering society, but about bettering ourselves.
Even in our society it's almost "selfish" to want to be all of those things and each of those things vary by different cultures. Selfless in America isn't the same as selfless in India and so on.

I think it's realistic although majority frowned upon, one or more people being different could change the aspects of their factions and lives. Change the way they live.
However, at the end when everything is more peaceful, I feel as if it is more likely. Being broken into factions, it was hard for Four's society to accept that one person could fit into more than one faction. It was something that wasn't spoken about because most believed it could never be true/was taught it wasn't true. However, once the enforcer of this unrealistic idea was taken down, now it is completely possible for people to discover that they may fit in to more than one "category/characteristic" and discover things about themselves that they may never thought possible.
Looking at people in our world today, everyone's personality is unique and mixed with several character traits. For instance, I know someone who is kind, giving, can control his fears, is extremely smart and inquisitive, and who is honest, which is what makes our society a lot more interesting.
