It's always great to get compliments, it can be an excellent boost to one's self esteem. The things we get complimented for can vary pretty widely, though.


Reddit user u/miksmike asked:

"What do you get complimented for the most?"

Lately its been my glasses. Apparently I have the whole librarian look going on, esp because I'm always reading. I'm just hoping it leans more towards the sexy librarian version and not the crotchety old lady variety.

People say that I'm really funny. They also say that I seem very happy and that's refreshing.

Boy are they wrong.

My beard. It's still a surreal experience for me, and it's been happening for years. Strangers stop me on the street, in bars, or restaurants. At least it seems to somewhat impress dates when random people walk up to compliment me. I just wish I had something to say other than "thanks".

I'm an Australian living in Canada so my accent.

Being easy to talk to. Which is ironic, because I actually don't seem approachable to many people at first--I have resting ahole face and I'm a kind of bigger, bearded dude. But I'm very friendly once the ice has been broken.

5.

being extremely competent. Little does everyone know I'm a huge screwup but am good at responding to people promptly. They equate this with competency.

4.

My hair and, weirdly, my facial structure.

-EdgyZigzagoon

3.

I get told a lot that I'm "mom goals" and always look pulled together. The secret is a really simple wardrobe - I could get dressed in the dark because everything goes together!

-YIKES2722

2.

My voice.

-einherjar81

Same here. I'm a woman and people tell me it's got a nice timbre and makes them "feel like everything will be okay"

-BlobbyBeets

That I'm well organised. Which always surprises me, I don't think I am at all.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
