What makes you unique?

Asked by KeepYourEyesWideOpen (345 points ) January 15th, 2013

I honestly don’t know—I don’t consider myself unique by any means!

How about you ? What’s the thing that makes you unique and what does it feel like?

I warmly thank you for your support so well expressed.

Just the particular combination of assets and interests that are shared by many other people.

We’re all so alike, and yet so different.

I’ve never been anyone else so I can’t be positive about this, but I’m pretty sure one of the main things that makes each of us unique is that each of us sees and processes the world differently.

My fingerprints and DNA. Otherwise, I have not met all 7 billion others on this planet and therefore lack emperical information enough to truly answer this question.

Nobody else wanted the job of being me, so I guess I’m stuck with it.

Growing up moving around every couple of years gives me a unique perspective on life. The sum of all my experiences makes me the unique being I am today.

I don’t think I’m uniquer (for Gail, more unique) than any body else. Although, the curlique of a little toe on my left foot could set me apart.

My friends tell me that I’m unique in that I’d just as soon stay home as go out, I don’t care much what people think about my life choices, and that I talk about God/ Jesus like a friend.

I think I’m just a cranky old hermit forced to work and live in the ‘real’ world, which is probably not unique- lol

Just about everything makes me unique. Just like everyone else. If you look at us through a small enough filter, everyone is quite different.

On the other hand, if you pull back far enough and look at us through a wide filter, we are all the same.

I prefer to look small and see the things that make people different and interesting. I don’t like to pull back and look for similarities. Those are easy to find. Although finding small similarities is more difficult and more rewarding.

I have a powerful odour that only gets stronger as the day goes on.

Pyramid shaped testicles, you have to get the binding mold on at a young age, but it is totally worth it.

Don’t think there is any thing unique about me, I wish there was.

I am a left handed right brained blonde with a rare blood type, and the 2nd rarest personality type in the population, with only .025 or ¼ of 1% of females sharing my temperament style.
I’m a zany lone wolf. lol

This reminds me of those t-shirts that say “I’m unique…just like everybody else.” Other than my DNA, nothing at all makes me unique. I’ve actually never met anyone I’d call unique. Being unique means you’re the one and only like that. This describes pretty much no one. People overuse and misuse this word.

wundayatta's avatar

Oh piffle, @Shippy. You know you are unique. And if you don’t, I do. So never say that again. You’ll be lying.

newtscamander's avatar

Hm, well….maybe we get more and more unique during the course of our life, because of what we have experienced? No two people will ever have experienced exactly the same things. So, in conclusion, I would say that, up to now, my 18 years make me unique.

@rebbel i don’t want to burst your bubble, but I’m pretty sure there are many others among us who spell it the same way

It turns out, I’m not really. I used to think I was so different from everyone else, and then I found out I was hanging around the wrong people. Now I find others like me whenever I can, since I feel more comfortable.

SABOTEUR's avatar

The illusions I maintain that convince me I’m seperate from “everyone else”.

gondwanalon's avatar

What makes me unique is the fact the I see myself as not unique.

My genome.
