What defines you as you?

2 years, 5 months ago

I was just wondering what everyone’s “defining” characteristic is. Is it your passion for learning? Your compassion? Your superior athletic abilities? Or your ability to look past the ordinary.

What about you makes you so special?

@acidreyne, There is never one defining characteristic of one thing in the entire universe. personality is a very diverse conglomeration of a great many things.

I’m not sure because I feel like I’m always changing. What defines me now might not define me in a couple years.

i agree… the combination of many characteristics we own are what makes us special.. unique. There are many things that interest me that does not interest a common girl in her twenties. but that is not my defining characteristic. there are more people around the world with similar thoughts and values. things like that does not makes us special, that makes us less common…

I don’t think any thing can define a person. Your interests do not make you, your thoughts do not make you, there is no you. There is only we. Sure you may have your separate physical body, that’s only the surface.

I wear corduroy pants everyday. This is the most consistent thing about me.
