How Weird Are You?

 

 

Anything which deviates from the normal is considered weird. Humans have this tendency to ridicule or shame anything that goes against their beliefs. You could notice it in people who are more conservative than others while it is also true that a fair bit of it could be found in almost anyone. We all have this tendency to set standards for almost anything on the planet like how much a person should earn, skin color, school grades, and many different things.

Even if you deviate a little from those standard you would be treated as an outcast and often you would be ridiculed for the same. It is a fact that even if we are genetically almost the same we still could be radically different in our own ways. There is nothing wrong with it and we should encourage it. We should question everything rather than calling them as weird or not fit for society. Many of the greatest philosophers, scientists, and visionaries were able to do so because they had said no to many of the norms of society.

I am not saying that everyone could become like them but the point is that we all should have our own unique thoughts even if it not fits society. The reason is if we all follow the same life structure then our society could be better called off as a society of bots. It is also true that believing in our own thoughts and acting differently than others is not easy. You would face friction, but the point is that we need to do this to lead a fruitful life.

I believe that it will also play out in favor of our human species. There are many more benefits to thinking differently. Looking at the biographies or autobiographies of great people you would realize that they didn’t have a very happy life. They had all sorts of problems but they lived their life without ignoring their conscience. They always introspected their lives and always questioned everything. Even we get that basic habit of questioning everything we would be much better off as a society. This is a fun quiz and doesn’t take it too seriously. Just play and enjoy it.

“There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don’t fit into their box are weird. But I’ll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids. Like ignorance.”
― C. JoyBell C.

“That proves you are unusual,” returned the Scarecrow; “and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
― L. Frank Baum, The Land of Oz

“A girl’s got to use what she’s given and I’m not going to make a guy drool the way a Britney video does. So I take it to extremes. I don’t say I dress sexily on stage – what I do is so extreme. It’s meant to make guys think: ‘I don’t know if this is sexy or just weird.”
― Lady Gaga

“Quiet people always know more than they seem. Although very normal, their inner world is by default fronted mysterious and therefore assumed weird. Never underestimate the social awareness and sense of reality in a quiet person; they are some of the most observant, absorbent persons of all.”
― Criss Jami, Healology

“Look, this is all very, very weird. Why are you focusing on rumours and urban legends? You haven’t even asked me any
normal questions.”
“Normal questions? Like what?”
“Like, I don’t know, like if Lynch had any enemies.”
“Did Lynch have any enemies?”
“Well, not that I know of, no.”
“Then there really was no point in me asking that, was there? Unless you wanted to distract me. You didn’t want to distract me, did you, Kenny?”
“No, that’s not—”
“Are you playing a game with me, Kenny?”
“I don’t know what you’re—”
Inspector Me leaned forward. “Did you kill him?”
“No!”
“It’d be OK if you did.”
Kenny recoiled, horrified. “How would that be OK?”
“Well,” Me said, “maybe not”
