    Test out things that you've been wanting to do. No, this doesn't mean you have to completely abandon your stamp collection, just find some new eccentric things that interest you. For example, maybe you'd like to try your hand at calligraphy, or give bocce ball a shot.

    Find some new shows and movies to watch. Don't be shy, watch anything you like: silent films, film noir, foreign films, indie films, dark comedies, kiddy stuff, anything! It's also fun to have movie nights of this type with friends or family who are also interested.
    • Try making your own film. Making a movie is something that's fun yet challenging, and not too many people have done. When you're done, show it to your friends and family.

    Listen to music you like. Don't listen to music just because it's popular unless you genuinely like it. If you never like stuff that's on the charts, that doesn't mean you have to reject your friend's favorite type of music just because it's popular. Listen to online radios to find more unknown music that you like.
    • If none of the bands out there make your favorite type of music, why don't you start your own band and write your own music? It's fun and rewarding, plus you can entertain people with the same musical taste as you and be even more unique.

    Buy what you like. Don't buy something just because it's "in". Buy things that represent you. Mix and match, and create your own style of clothing.
    • Shop at thrift stores, or better yet, make your own clothes. Nobody can have the same thing as you if it just popped into your head one day!

    If you are a girl, wear jewelry that means something. Or you could just wear no jewelry at all, if you don't want to. You could wear friendship bracelets from your friends, or even just friendship bracelets from you that let you know you're special. It's good to wear jewelry that expresses who you are.
    • Make jewelry at home, or check local art galleries that have things for sale. They might have cute and original jewelry.

    Play sports that aren't very popular around where you live or invent a sport. Start leagues in your area or neighborhood and have competitions.

    Don't be shy and be bold. Don't be afraid to show off your new found uniqueness. Not everybody is themselves, and they just follow the pack, so you're sure to stand out when flaunting the real you.

    Be yourself. Don't be afraid to stand out and don't try to be someone you're not, because somebody may notice and think you're a joke.


  • If people walk by you and say rude remarks ignore them. You are you, and be happy with yourself.
  • If anyone thinks your style is weird, ignore it (unless it gets too serious, then you can just tell an adult close to you.)
  • Have signature personality parts. Come up with a catchphrase. The possibilities are endless to make your personality stand out!


  • People might stare at you. Ignore them.
  • There are lots of different ways to be unique, not just this one.
  • Be yourself! After all, isn't that the whole point of doing this?
