    Get a tattoo. Make sure to get one that has a personal link to you but it also must be mysterious enough for people to ask about it. However, if you are concerned with real tattoos, you can just buy those fake press-on ones and apply them every week or so to make it look real.

    Skill. Join classes or self-teach to use any weapon that is safe enough. You can also carry fake knives with you. However, people may see you as a criminal if you are carrying knives and report you to the police, so try to not do this so often.

    Self-control. The Dauntless have always achieved in overcoming their fears. If you are afraid of the dark, deliberately walk into a dark room and stay there. Control your breathing and everyday lengthen your time. You will be fearless and less-panicky in frightening situations.

Tips

  • One more way is to stand up to that cheerleader at school who's been bullying since time immemorial. [ Ordinary acts of bravery ]
  • If someone repeatedly insults you, just chill then threaten.
  • Dauntless is not about being unafraid, it is about dealing with fear productively. If you are afraid of heights, don't let that stop you from taking a plane to see family. It's about dealing with problems instead of complaining about them and staying inactive.
  • Remember, being brave doesn't mean you have to be reckless. In fact, it shouldn't. So don't be reckless and get yourself hurt!

Warnings

  • Do not carry or use guns in public.
  • While self-teaching, do it in a safe place.
  • Do not leap off trains. Dauntless basically live for this stuff. You do not!
