14 Unique Behaviors That Make You Stand Out Instantly

There are lots of ways to be unique in this world — from your hobbies, to your appearance, to what energy you give out to other people. It’s part of what makes it great to be human! Here are 14 unique behaviors that you may not even realize you do that make you stand out from the crowd.

1. You’re not afraid to be silly.

You may not even see it as a conscious decision, but when you embrace your silly side, it makes people see you as being more free-spirited and establishes you as a fun-loving and less serious person. When the world is already so stressful, being silly and fun makes you stand out as someone who’s enjoyable to be around.

Not everyone finds it easy to try new things — also known as neophobia, Verywell Mind notes — because it can involve risk and commitment. That means that if you’re known for picking up unique new hobbies, fostering pets, and taking up less popular sports, everyone will flock to you because you bring out that side in them.
