Just curious how people would approach and answer these very broad questions. I've kept the polls simple - as you can see there's basically just "weird" and "normal" (please don't everybody put "not sure" tongue.gif), I did that because it'll be interesting to see which word out of just these two people are more drawn to in these cases, although of course I TOTALLY REALISE how subjective and broad these words are. But if you had to choose between just these two "simple" words. I have a feeling it's probably going to lean towards "normal" and I don't see that as a bad thing btw! But it'll be interesting to see different views...

Is there a "good" weird and a "bad" weird? Do you get called weird? What do you think about people quickly labelling others as "weird"?

I'll vote if and when I've made up my mind. Might also throw in some comments once I've gathered my thoughts after some sleepage.

Pretty sure he was referring to me laugh.gif

Funny how us three were all in the category "most eccentric".

Yeah I don't have a very good feeling about this thread all of a sudden... not sure why

Michael regularly tells you to go to bed in the shoutbox? Actually now that I think about it, I think I have observed such behaviour...

I don't know how to vote in my own poll. The last one is pretty easy - I'm drawn more to alternative music, although I do like some pop too, and I guess alternative would go under "weird".

As for what I would prefer to be myself, I guess normal. Just for the easy life lol. I'm not the weirdest and I'm not the normalest (?) but if I had to be boxed into just one of those, I guess I would go for normal because that would make it easier for people to relate to me possibly. I don't enjoy being called weird or odd or anything, I think I've figured out that it is indeed because I'd rather have people get me and relate.

As for others, I'd rather not spend an excess amount of time with REAL weirdos, that would be tiring. There's always certain extremes that might be best avoided. However, I'd rather people inspire me in some way so I wouldn't want dull either. So somewhere between the two? Someone who's pretty down-to-earth but still interesting and not afraid to be themselves. Authenticity is important to me. So ideally I'd go for "interesting" but that doesn't exist in the poll and I deliberately made it so, so I guess I'll have to go for "weird" for that one.

I feel like I'm talking to myself but I just like discussing things, do let me off the hook sad.gif

Well, yes I want to be weird for all three. Certainly with music, but in life it's just more interesting to be surrounded by weird people. In that I have in my head a romanticised version of the word and I'm just hopefully meaning pleasantly quirky rather than something someone'd call 'a creepy weirdo'.

predicting the people voting themselves the weirdest are actually the dullest if life experience is anything to go by. the people who need to let you know they're a bit cooky are usually boring af and it's the quiet people in he corner you gotta infiltrate to get the interesting ones.

I'd prefer people/myself to be normal tbh. You can still be interesting, funny and intelligent and still be normal. I know it's "on trend" to say you're weird (Ahem, Little Mix) but weird in reality = annoying. I don't want to be (or be with) that person rubbing oranges on their face in the supermarket or that "friend" who puts the TV on mute and makes up what they're saying for "fun".


In terms of music, bring on the weird.

Interesting and valid point (suddenly I'm not so regretful about creating this WEIRD ASS thread). Be yourself, that's the key. Being authentic doesn't mean being weird, it just means being yourself and sometimes letting people in to see that. It's not showing off weirdness or something. That's my understanding of it anyway. So if being yourself means you're similar to others and "normal", that's cool! And if being yourself means you're naturally "weird", that's cool too! And if you fall somewhere in between, like probably most people, well, that's cool too!

I'd definitely say I used to be extremely weird/random when I was younger *points to all embarrassing anecdotes ever mentioned* but I guess I'm more normal these days, I'd hope so! laugh.gif

Definitely into weird and wonderful stuff when it comes to music though!
