    does anyone here been told that they have a weird personality?

    does anyone here been told that they have a weird personality when they're not in an emotional rut?

    i've been told by lot of people that i am kinda weird. it doesn't always bother me, and i attributed it to not being in great shape emotionally a lot of the time.

    just recently though i realized i am "kinda weird" even when i'm happy and perfectly clear-headed. it made me a little insecure for a while but i'm learning to dampen it as situations require.

    i still need work on it though; i know there are people who are comfortable enough in their "weirdness" to turn it around in their favor. how do you respond when someone calls you weird?

    i'm still not sure either what makes me so "weird". i suspect certain things, like the effort i put into trying to be funny, the lack of restraint with which i point every other odd thing out, my tendency to display familiarity with anyone, my inability to take interest in what interests most people.. but i've never been able to put a real finger on it.

  2. When someone calls me wierd. I say thank you and take it as a compliment if it's a guy. If it's a girl, I tell her, she's just trying to hit on me, and she wants me, and this is her pitiful attempt to hit on me.

    Better then an employer saying: you have no personality.

    Honestly its nothing to worry about , its just who you are.

    Hmmm...weird? We all are weird in some way.
    However, I like to replace the word "weird" with unique.

    It's our uniqueness that makes us all special.

    Think of how boring it would be if we were all the same.

    I'm very weird. People tell me. I don't care.

    OMG, I do that too. And I say "eep" when I do it, just like a bird would.

    Seems like we have some uniquely common individuals here. :)

    I don't like to feed the idea of the personality. It is perishable, defective. Focus on what that personality is hiding... your Innermost.

    I'll chime in.

    Another perspective for you to explore: what's your IQ? Often times, you're deemed weird or eccentric when your thought processes aren't in line with everyone else's and you possess divergent opinions. I've gotten that a few times, but it's becoming increasingly rare since I make an effort to interact only with like-minded people.

    It can also be the way you talk or move. Are you aware of any tics or special mannerisms?

    I'm usually considered "weird", or "awkward", although ]I don't exactly see it as a penalty. Honstly, I think my weirdness has made me the unique person I am, and has allowed me to have a wide horizon of friends in multiple "cliques". So don't let it get down on you. You're unique, and nobody can change that.

    In my opinion, "weirdness" is communicated non-verbally, mostly through body language, voice tone, and eye contact.

    I used to. I would run in circles and say eep, eep, and flap my arms. I haven't been able to do it in quite a while though :wtc:

    you must still be in highschool, or just out

    when you get more into adulthood and the real world, you'll find out that everyone has their quirks, and, even moreso, no one really cares all that much, we're all too busy dealing with our own lives

    unless its a quirk which actually negatively affects others, i wouldnt worry about it

    actually i'm finishing college, haha.. i am a little late dealing with it. for the most part i have stopped giving a shit what other people think, but nothing beats a snappy comeback.

    besides, it's not like everyone grows out of the childishness of the elementary school playground (you should see what a bunch of graduates competing for that first promotion will do).

    in the long run, but sometimes the adage "in the long run, we are all dead!" seems very true.

    in any case, there are advantages to streamlining the face you put on with strangers. i'm definitely grateful i have people i can take it off with, and that i do have a distinct personality.
