At the age of 16, each person is required to take an aptitude test.
Based on their results, they decide whether to remain with the faction they were born into, or to try and become a member of a new one.
Timeline of events:
Tris was born into Abnegation, but often felt out of place there, like she didn't belong.
While training to become a Dauntless member, Tris makes herself known by literally taking a big leap into the new faction.
At the second stage of initiation, Tris herself ends up beating Peter.
Leaving your original faction is frowned upon.
As one stage of the Dauntless initiation, initiates are injected with a serum that gives them hallucinations in which they are facing their worst fears.
Tris is pleased with her ranking, but her fellow initiate, Peter, is not. He ranked second place, after another initiate (and one of Tris' friends), Edward.
At the end of all three stages of initiation, Tris was ranked first place overall, and was accepted as an official member of Dauntless.
Because of her divergence, Tris doesn't get brainwashed. She, along with Four, work together and destroy Erudite's evil plan.

Tris struggled with the expectations of her family and faction (Abnegation,) as they wanted her to live a life of selflessness like their own.
Both characters had expectations to live up to, and they both found the courage to rise above them, and go their own way.
Even though Peter is
, he realizes that she is determined, courageous, and bold after she ranks higher than him in the initiation test.
Here is a monologue from Peter's point of view about Tris after she beats him in an initiation test:
Tris is the only fomer member of Abnegation who ended up choosing Dauntless as a faction. She is teased by other initiates about being a 'Stiff'.
"She has answers; i know she does. If she doesn't give them to me now, I will have to find a way to make her tell me some other time." (p.90)
"The last thing I want to do is stand in front of that target, but i can't back down now...I recover my balance and walk towards Al."(p.162)
"A stiff, the first to jump? Unheard of." (p.230)
Peter responds by violently attacking him.
