  • Compliment. In my book weird just means not normal and who the hell wants to be normal? Normal people are boring narrow minded and usually have no better than mediocre intelligence

  • Considering I've been called weird plenty of times before by people (aka @xnicholemariex3 ), I'm going to pretend weird is just another word for unique, interesting, or perhaps special-in-a-good-way.

    Since I'd rather be complimented than insulted, I'm going to interpret "weird" as a good thing. It just means out of the ordinary, and if it doesn't mean creepy, it is a good thing, right?

    • Lol yes Randall weird is a good thing 😊

    • Lol weird is normal, I am renamed as 'Psycho' by few people (Aka @MissNowHere) , got to admit I adore and love it.

  • Usually you can tell the way it's said. If it's, ''you're so weird'' and their face is of contempt. Usually not a compliment. But if it's "you're so weird with a smile on their face". That's a compliment.

    • What if it's a text?

    • @Heyyakk Depends. If it's just ''you're weird'' without any additional information it's vague. If it's, ''you're weird with a :p" it's positive.

  • depends on what you think of the person that told you that... lol

    i had one person call me weird (in a bad way) one time - he was the most boring person in the world. I looked at him and said "why do you think your opinion means anything to me? I'm freaking cool! - you put people to sleep - bye!"

  • Today some guy in my class said: "the people don't wanna sit adjacent to you cause they think you are crazy aka wierd" I said maybe I am weird yeah it's cool and those people are boring.
    A third of my class hates me or tries to fool me cause I don't know they r retarded, added that a few in my class were bully victims at their older school I can tell that I don't care much about it even tho I listed all that information comming from my observation. Busta rhymes

  • Depends on the context I guess.

    When people call me weird it's always in a positive way.

  • I've been "weird" without trying to be for years and years and years. At this point I put measurable effort into appearing normal and trying to fit in. So I'd be insulted, yes.

  • i'll take it as a compliment, with a cherry on top.

    The context and tone of how one uses the word "weird" can really depend on whether it's an insult or a compliment. Sometimes how the person interprets it can also play a part

  • I don't care either way.
    When someone tells you that almost all of them will phrase it as an insult - that's why people take it as one.

  • The word "weird" used to mean that something was wrong with someone, something maladaptive. Before then, it had something to do with things of a dark, macabre nature. So the definition of that word evolves throughout the generations. If someone was a creeper when I was growing up we called them a weirdo. In another 20 years it may mean something else entirely.

  • I get told I'm weird all the time. I think there's good weird and bad weird. Good weird is someone who is quirky and unique, bad weird is the dude jacking off on the bus.

  • Weird is odd and odd is apart from the world :D I think its a compliment.

    People who want to "fit in" and not "stand out" are the ones who think it is an insult.

    I'd like that insult xD xD
