Does being called average offend you?

It's better than being called butt ugly :(
Of course not, nobody is going to be the best at everything and a lot of these things are subjective. A maths test has a clear right or wrong result so you can be clearly rated. But a work of art you created? Your appearance? It's in the eye of the beholder so it's always subjective. In some areas being above average isn't a good thing anyway
If i did average at something ok but im super competitive and usually do above average to exceptional at almost everything so yeah id be put off but not offended. I would think you're an idiot for not realizing it and quit wasting time being your friend or dating you or whatever and hang out with someone who appreciates me.
If it’s my personality they think is average it’s kind of disappointing to me as an individual mainly bc I like to laugh & make others laugh but if it’s my looks ahh screw it we all get saggy and old. Looks fade but personality that shits forever.
Nope, it wouldn't mean anything to me as I don't care about the opinions of others. I have been called above average several times and I attract, so I know I'm not tho. Personality wise, I've been through too much to be considered average. I wouldn't take it seriously.
I was told I'm "not that pretty" once by a man which I was offended. Normally, no one says I'm average. It depends on how people see me anyways. I think it's narcissistic if you think you're above average (no matter it's true or not), keeping bragging about that or posting selfies 10 times a day.
No. I know that everyone had different likes and dislikes. I wouldn't get offended by it but simply shrug it off.
Nah, it's the truth and I know it so I'm fine with being called average.
Nope I don't care. Lol I think I described myself to an uber driver as a fat lady with a giant green coat.. lol he laughed hahaha And found me spot on! lol
Reminds me of one of my favorite movies.
It’s not exactly what I’d like to hear but it’s better than being called below average
I've been called ugly, by someone in middle school.. upset me the first time I heard it (even though the person that said it to me was ugly too). But I do consider myself average, and I'm open about it and don't care what others think now.
Offend me so hard but I don't explode in anger but I don't like to feel like anyone else anyway regardless that I know that there are a lot of better people than me
Not really, but it does tell me that I can improve.
tbh yes. I dont like to be average. I like to be at least diffrent. Im not better, im not worst. Im just ME
Yes... I strive for perfection. Anything below... Is unacceptable.
Only perfection... Is acceptable.
Average people would be offended. Im not average by any means hell im lower then average. Thats why i dont show up on women's radars for "I should be interested in him" or could be interested for that matter.
Being average means everything is made for you. Clothes, electronics, experiences and so much more. Firms go after the average person firsr
People only call me "Skinny". I feel offended even though it's true.
Yes because I know I'm ugly and if some calls me average they have very low standards (which is bad) or they're lying to me (which is a lot worse).😤
Nah. I'm a glass-half-full kind of person, So I'd just be happy I don't suck.
Yes because I'm objectively not the average person.
I would be upset, but I wouldn’t really be able to counter it
Nope but being called ugly doesn't offend me either.
Nothing about me is average. Probably mostly in bad ways but it is what it is.
It doesn't offend me, but it would make me go home and think about it later like "huh, average."
nope can't say it bothers me you can always improve from that state : )
That would be just awful knowing that I'm not even close to that on all levels
Yes, because I try to look worse than average.

I wouldn't be offended... Just worried about my chances with women...
If I'm average then I'm average why should I be offended by it.
Id be glad to be called average lol, i need a paper bag most days
I'll take "average of the sexiest guys around" anytime.
I dont mind anybody calling me average, i know what i am
Unless my payment is contingent upon it, I don't care what others think of me.
No, averageness is something I aspire to. Statistically average is better than half of you losers.
Yes the fact you would lie to my face despite clear evidence would offend me
Still better than being called ugly
Depends on what about me is called average
Average is an improvement for me 😂
maybe a little offended but i'd be okay with it.
I dont care what people think.
Not at all. I am average.
Would never settle for being average
