Unique Traits

Everyone has a unique trait, many of them unexpected. What's yours?

For me, it's probably that I'm athletic. As a massive nerd (who is now tech support for his dorm) most just assume that I'm an antisocial weakling. Well, the first is mostly right, but I can play many sports at least competently, and am fairly fast.
Also, I can read faster than anyone I know.
Anyone else?

I'm a nerd with a vast knowledge of cars, not very expected of me especially when I call out mechanics that are BSing people

I bear a striking resemblance to Steve from Blue's Clues.

I don't have any unique traits, i'm ordinary in every way.

I'm far more agile than I look.

I found out that I know more about engines than the average person when I helped my friend rebuild his engine. Also, I frequently find myself explaining how engines work to people.

That's awesome.

You're unique in your ordinariness!
Hah!

I have tourettes, yet do not scream out obscenities (it being a minor case.)

I am also fairly athletic for a nerd.

Hmm, perhaps that's your unique characteristic, that you don't have any.

Ninja time?

I demand pictures for comparison. Blues Clues is awesome, if you really do look like Steve then you are also awesome by default.

I'm a nerd that doesnt suck at socialising with the opposite sex and people assume that since I'm a pacifist I must just being a weakling that sucks in a fight, however, I believe that the many years of built up rage may emerge as something dangerous.

Pics or it didn't happen, but really Blue's Clues was freakin awesome

Its a wonder there isn't a Blue's Clues user group yet because well that show was just great

Agreed. If this is true, you are elevated to epic levels of cool in my book.

I'm quite quick and flexible despite my slight hunch.

I can figure out any control scheme to a game almost instantly.

Indeed, most people think of me as fairly harmless, while I am simply restraining myself from strangling them. Taking wrestling in high school helped, though I may have instead made myself more dangerous... Oops.

I have no unique traits.
Unless you count EXTREME FUCKING FROWNING(tm). In which case, that.
(I am an unhappy person)

I think simply being a gamer helps with that. I can't do it instantly, but I'm much better than most of my friends, bar one, who's also a gamer.

I know someone who's.. 6' 10", if I recall correctly. He's a junior in High School, so about the same height as you.

I AM GOD!
Ahem...sorry about that.
I have OCD, I don't agree with most moral rules and some people think I belong in a psychiatric penitentiary because I have radical theories about controversial subjects.

I have heightened senses. Which is, quite frankly a really shitty deal.

It makes it an absolute bitch to participate in conversations in crowded areas because everyone's always being drowned out by the background. My eyesight leaves me with headaches when I'm outside without sunglasses (it's light sensitivity, not acuity that's boosted.) Sense of smell isn't usually too bad because my allergies tend to keep it plugged up enough that I don't notice it most of the time. Taste just means I come across as a picky eater, and touch leads to some unpleasantness. Minor contact is extremely aggravating for me. Also, I have to be pretty careful about what I wear, lest the texture irritate my skin too much and distract me.

I'm good at running even though I never really train or excersice or lead a healthy life...
Not really unique, but the only 'uniqueish' thing about me.

lol so am I, I can't run all that fast but I'm quite flexible. I use to wrestle and we stretched a lot so ya lol, but I don't wrestle anymore, just wasn't my kind of sport.

I actually don't have any pictures of myself, unfortunately, but here's an artist's rendering:

I jump at loud noises and have an (undiagnosed 1 ) case of OCD and ADD/ADHD

1 Everyone at school acknowledges it, including teachers, as do my parents. I also took several quizzes on the internet (for OCD) and they all came up positive.

Same. Admittedly, the hunch is getting better, but one of my friends wondered if I had kyphosis, aka constantly slouched.

Heh, my roomate is always saying that he's God. Leads to some interesting conversations, especially because he's entirely sarcastic. Still, it's becoming a running joke with us.

High-Five for wanting to burn those damn mammals!

OT: I'm very skinny/ bony. Hence the name!

I have strangely advanced healing capabilities. I don't mean like, cut off my arm and it'll grow back, but I can literally watch a shallow cut heal completely in a minute or so and I can heal deep cuts and stabs without any surgical treatment and not even leave a scar. I can also dislocate almost any joint in my body due to them being dislocated repeatedly over the years, along with being able to pop them in with no problem whatsoever. That, along with the insane amount of double-joints I have, allows me to fit in places like a footlocker or a cabinet.

I'm a huge anime nerd and nerd in general, and play guitar, which makes people think im cooler than i am :3

I'm a pretty decent Rugby player. This is shocking since not only am I nerd but also I'm quite small. But I'm still pretty good at the sport. Football...that'd be fine. Dodgeball...hell yeah. Rugby and Basketball were the two unsure ones. But I am good at Rugby.

My friend was about that tall in year 8. (He's 7 foot 3" now (17 years old)) Srsly!

my most unique trait is that i am evil

for some reason people think this is a bad thing, not sure i agree

also my heart is backwards when compared to "normal" people. Not sure if this is a trait or a genetic abnormality.

let me know if you figure it out

That's brilliant. Dang, I wish I could do that.

I'm not sure whether that meets the criteria or not. Still, it gives a good enough idea, I suppose. Or something.

1. I could teach anything i know while stumble-struck drunk. one night i went on and on about the world of Warhammer 40000, and got my girlfriend interested in the books. she admitted later that had she seen them in a book store, she wouldn't even approach the shelf.

2. "beer muscles" is a term used to describe increases in strength and pain resistance in the human body while drinking. unfortunately, most of MY musclemass is in my legs, therefore granting me the uncanny ability to haul prodigious amounts of a$$ while drunk.

3. despite my large vocabulary, i seem to have inherited my father's trait of being a man of few words.

backwards? i've heard of it being on the right side, but how'd you get it backwards?
