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.

6.

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.

-mrbort

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

1.

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

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
