If you often have a feeling that you see things differently than majority of people, you are not weird, you just have the ability to perceive the world more deeply. In this age of technology, curiosity, intelligence and complexity are not common traits for people. Instead of following the rules that society has set for us, you actually create your own path and think for yourself. There are lots of benefits from being such person, but it can be hard for others to handle you because of your uniqueness.
These are 7 signs that your personality is so unique that others might find it difficult to handle you.
1. You say what you mean and mean what you say
People often avoid speaking their mind in fear of being criticized or seen as weird from others. You are everything but this. You feel an urge to express your feelings because otherwise you will feel inauthentic or superficial. You value deep and meaningful conversation and you try to have a positive impact in their life.
2. You don’t depend on others for your happiness
Sometimes we get in a relationship that is not working for us which can consume our whole being and leave us traumatized and drained. But, this lesson was very important to you because it taught you how to be happy with who you are whether you are in a relationship or single. You love having an authentic relationship but you are even more aware of your responsibility to take care of yourself.
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
3. You hate small talk
You are not annoyed by the boring questions but by the superficial answers. When someone says something like “I’m good” you know it lacks meaning and should rather be left unsaid. This is why you avoid small-talk because you are truly interested in what people think, feel and believe and you expect them to be honest.
4. Action is what matters to you
People who are articulate but never back it up with action are called smooth talkers. But, if you are annoyed by these people you probably never let them fool you with their words. For you, action is the only thing that matters and you use your critical thinking skills to determine whether a person is genuine or not.
5. You love to listen to others and learn about other people
Learning is what makes you excited, motivated and keeps you going. It helps you feel like you are involved in a complex world which is why you are an excellent conversationalist. You carefully listen to others when they talk to you and you never let your ego stand in the way.
6. You can’t stand insensitivity, idiocy or ignorance
You are very proud of your self-taught knowledge. You are instantly annoyed when people make fast judgements about things or people they know nothing about. But, you put your brain and thoughts into it and you encourage others to do so as well. You are confident about your opinions and you never let others affect them.
7. You don’t seek attention
You can never understand why people crave attention just because of their appearance or status. It is superficial and meaningless and you would rather be recognized and appreciated for your depth and complexity. This is why you invest a lot of time in getting to know someone because you are aware that there is a lot more than what appears on the surface.
