I have noticed in most places people living in the same general area tend to like the same things, dislike that same things, act similarly etc. SO I was wondering, based on where you live are you just another "clone" or are you daring enough to be different?

So.. you're asking if people are unique?

I think, for the most part, I'm fairly different from most around here. Certainly those in my family. A lot of people around here are totally obsessed with football (watching it on TV, playing it, etc.) and I can't stand it. :/ Likewise, they think my anime is stupid ;-;'

Alas.

Yes. I am asking if they are unique. Was I unclear? If so, to prevent more confusion, I can change my psot and poll.

Well there are two people that I share similar qualaties with, but we are still different from eachtother.
I'm the most ... umm "Outspoken" one. XD
Midori Chi is the friendliest one.
and Pink-tiger is the funny one, and we all live in the same state.

I live in West Virginia. I don't live off a steady stream of bud lite and twinkies, I don't own an ATV, I don't hunt or watch NASCAR, I don't have a hick accent, I'm not Christian or right-wing conservative, I don't refer to manga as 'them chinese books', I don't live in a trailer park and we have indoor plumbing. I'm not a stereotype. :3

I am both a clone and not a clone at the same time, so therefore I am probably not. I have what is probably the widest array of interests and personalities in my county. I like both many things that would label me a jock, as well as many things that would label me a nerd.

Augh. I can relate completely. I'm nothing like most of my family. I'm completely SICK of football. And no one likes my anime.

I lived in the same state all my life, even the same town, and I am completely different from those around me. I never fit in with the people of my age group or those in my classes. I don't fit in with the people of my town, driving around in the rich SUVs that no one can afford.

Basically, I'm in the wrong town/state/age group if I want to fit in. And to add even more, I'm different from my family as well.

So yes, I am pretty unique, and darn proud of it.

I'm fairly different from the rest of the people in my area. I never really fit in very well...XP I' have my own style of doing things and I'm slightly old fasioned in a fairly populous area where people just arent as old fasioned anymore. That and add in the fact that I'm nerdy as ever and was somewhat larger than most people (I think I inherited the huge body frame of the men from my mother's side of the family) and you can easily see that I dont exactly fit into any specific group.

I am fairly unique. And it tends to attract some mixed attention. Some good and some bad. But I've always been sort of a loner. Not as much as I used to be..(I hope I'm getting over that) But still am to some degree. As you can esily see, If you know me you know I dont exactly click amongst any group of friends here D: I just sorta attract my own friends I guess.

I feel I'm quite different to everyone in my community. Nobody else seems to share my interests nor do I share anyone elses on the whole. I have only ONE friend who does and that person is very easily my BEST friend.

I sure LOOK different in the sense that I stick out like a sore thumb. The reason is because I sit like L from Death Note (with my knees up) EVERYWHERE. Be it in college, at the dinner table or even on the bus!

I've always been my own person. I'm this big, soft-spoken guy... even speak softly when I'm angry.. haha.. it's creepy and cool.

and in fact... my crew.. each person is very distinct.

Greetings from South Nottinghamshire!

How can you say that people from general areas like the same things? What evidence is there?

There are probably 1 million locations that a PC member could be from, and there are only around 10000 active members. Also, there is no real correlation between area and interests. I happen to know this, because I haven't seen a single person from my area on PC

Let's be honest here: how many people do not see themselves as individuals? Especially when you place your own bias on the question by that oh-so-sly little phrases "daring enough" and "clone"? You could grab the worst pack-soul, sheep-personality, mindless-drone type person off the street and ask them if they see themselves as "clones" and odds are that they'll still say 'no'. It's the intellectual default of people to see themselves as individuals, so I predict that no-one is going to give you a 'yes' on this one.

Personally, I've never quite fit in with the big crowds, but there are divisions within the bigger crowds too, so at the end of the day I don't think that there's any solid template to differentiate myself from. Everyone is different from everyone else in one way or the other. xP

So, like...I'm different, but so is everybody else. xD

I'm no clone... I'm pretty different from all of the blonde sluts here. =D

Though actually there's a lot of different people down here in the southern states so there's no one "group" that everyone belongs in. Sometimes I follow the crowd and other times I do things my own way. I'm a blend of them all... I was born as a mutt from the start. :P

College Station, Texas. (Yes, we have a college and a train station.)

As for the "clone" thing, my morals are far different from those that are around my age and my area (theirs: "party", mine: "don't do drugs"), my music and art tastes are liberal, and I do not have my own group of friends (tap acquaintances from other groups).

So...yes, I am a clone. All those who think that they are unique is a clone of other people who think that they are unique. I am sure that there are others like me who lived and are living in the world here and now.

>_>; Well, mostly I'm way different from people I'm around.

However, as for me and two other Ontario-ans that are here on PC (.Maz., Vava and myself), the three of us speak French. :D

Aside from my ego, I'm pretty normal where I am now. I'm attending a university chock-full of geeks and nerds, so what was a little eccentric back in high school is practically the standard here. I'm not a partying person like a lot of people here, but at the same time, there are quite a few just like me in that regard too.

So I wouldn't say I deviate too far from the norm. I'm not a non-conformist or anything, but I am a little unique in some respects. Everyone is, though. :P

I live in Tennessee. Only my close friends know the city. ;x

I honestly am not a clone. The community here is more interested in looks and going on dates with the hottest guy. As for me, I'd rather stay at home on the phone or playing video games. Sometimes I try to follow certain clothing trends, but that's really it. I'm probably not unique when it all comes down to it. XD;

I am nothing like anyone here.

I only meet few people like me in general.

Few are interested in things like cryptozoology, politics, music, and art, to the extent that I am. ;>

I haven't been like anyone else in years...and I'm loving it. Being a freak is a term of pride when the normal people around you are sub-par in intelligence. ;D

I live where the location-personality changes so much. One block is all this and the next block is all that
so I have no idea what my area's personality tends to be.

I'm probably different no matter where I go in my area.

Right now I'm living in some suburban town in Massachusetts that no one knows excists, aside from the people who live here xD

Anyways, I'm my own person. Sometimes I try to act in to fitting a stereotype, but just for the fun of it..Like acting like one of many poser "scene" kids that live in my state, or just a stereotypical, mindless frat boy xD

But I'm known for doing my own thing, and not trying to conform to everyone else's standards just to be accept. there are really only maybe like..3 or 4 people I know in RL who act like anything similar to me ._.

Most of my friends, however..fit the stereotypical grunge-kid look xD

being born in CA and now living in a small town in TX i'm different i guess....

i'm open-minded, hate country music, tolerant of everything and i hate religion.

completely opposite of the hicks here that are narrow-minded, obsessed with country music, intolerant, and southern baptists who shove religion down everyone else's throats and HATES you if you arn't baptist.

i've only met a handful of people who are like me here

I am different to most people were I live. I don't really talk to to many people. I just have nothing in common with them so don't talk to them.

I like loads of things that most people at my school don't find interesting. None of my family watches the same shows as me so I am like an outsider wherever I go.

no where I live since I live in a Black/Latino area, and I am both Black and Latino, they tend to listen to Rap and Hiphop also Spanish music. I hate all 3, I listen to Rock and Japanese Rock music and dress as people will say "Punk or Rocker" and people will often label me as a Punk
