This question is a little bit broad but I will give you the freedom to say in any way or in whatever circumstance you become different from others. While its true that we are created unique, it is also apprent that most people have a lot of common things or similarities. So again, what makes you different?

I am different to others since I am very much willing to sacrifice whatever career I have for my loved one. I want them to be happy have a good life no matter how much worked I need to get. I am also different in the sense that, when someone will hurt me intentionally I can forget this person in my life as if he/she never exist! I am a good friend but once betrayed a very bad enemy.. Lastly, I am unique because I always pray for everyone not just my family..I pray for the entire world.and I know I am doing that everyday!

i am quite different from my peers because instead of going out and roaming around with them, make some funny stuff out there, instead i prefer to stay home and make money online. all of them don't know why i always refused to go with them. my destinations are home, my business and school. i love to stay at home with my computer. i live alone and no one can disturbed me.

I guess the main thing that makes me different from others is that my personality is highly oxymoronic, therefore making it so that when people think they know me and where my interests and passions lead to, they really don't. It is often annoying because it makes it hard for people to understand me, especially when they are quick to assume things. Examples include: I am a dancer... it's the most important thing in my life. However, as much fun as it is to perform, I find it to be a boring thing to watch (nothing personal against anyone). I am fascinated by cars and aerospace, but hate driving and am petrified of flying. I am conservative (and frighteningly so for some people) in my politics, but liberal in my emotions. I love music and have the largest collection of it of anyone I know, however, I have only been to one concert in my entire life. (Also, I don't care for most mainstream music, yet my favorite artist is Garth Brooks... people don't realize this but I was a fan of his BEFORE he was considered mainstream). I have a very distinct sense of style (or so I am told) but I do not like shopping much. I am short, and unlike most short people, I do not want to be taller. Also, when I was a teenager, I loved being told I looked younger than I was... and I hated talking on the phone (still do). I am physically strong, but emotionally weak. I perform comfortably in front of large audiences on stage, and am often recognized as one of the most expressive ones. However, in person, I am PAINFULLY taciturn. The list goes on... That is probably the thing that is the most different about me compared to other people - my oxymoronic nature.
