Un-interesting, least interesting and most interesting

I’ve been thinking about my post where I asked you to define the least interesting thing about you.

Now I want to clarify:

Least interesting does not mean un-interesting.

To me.

Does it to you?

I mentioned my wardrobe as being my least interesting feature, in my own opinion. What I meant was that there were more interesting things about me than the clothes I wear.

Do you see what I mean?

Perhaps clothes are a way to attract during a first impression. But the clothes should not define you as a person. Yes, playing with fashion could be construed as a creative flair, and if that’s your thing by all means, have at it.

I like pretty clothes too. I like simple, comfortable, good quality clothes. Clean. (Must this be emphasized?) But to call me a fashion statement would be incorrect. πŸ˜›

My clothes are not the thing I hold as my most esteemed, most endearing quality.

Although sometimes I wish I had a nicer wardrobe…πŸ™„

I can see that I’m clear as mud here. So let’s go back to the beginning and re-vist the question:

Instead of asking what the least interesting quality is about you, let’s find out the opposite.

What is your most interesting quality?

I’ll start.

A most interesting feature about me is my ability to connect with people through the written word.

Your turn. πŸ˜‰

  1. I’m not sure I have a most interesting quality. Not many people know just how much of a nerd I really am πŸ™‚ Is that an interesting quality? Or that I learned to fly a 737 for no apparent reason during lockdown ?

  2. Most interesting…. hmm.

    I guess it might be my attitude that I am trying to forget something new every day. Not many people will claim to aspire to such… low things… I am largely doing it to limit my preconceived notions about a great many things. I was a sponge when I was younger, and now I’d kind of squeezing some of that out.

      1. There’s not much to it, really. I have trained myself over the past few years to forget stuff that I don’t need on a daily basis, or am unlikely to need, and I go into things with a fresh mind.

        I guess a recent example is that I’ve been a self-taught musician since mid-teens. Never technically proficient and prone to breaking music theory rules because I didn’t bother to learn them at first. Over the years, playing with other musicians, I started picking up the rules of music, which improved my songwriting, but started making things more “samey” over time, the more I learned — both with my own compositions and in comparison to what else is out there.

        The last musical partner I had was arrogant about his understanding of musical theory, composition, and lyrical content. He would often put down my non-traditional chord progressions, rhythms and lyrics, and he basically tried to mold me in his image. I wanted to play music, so I allowed him to infuse me with all that stuff.

        I found out, after we’d broke up as a duo, I couldn’t remember how to play the way I used to play songs.

        Lately, while I haven’t always been consistently productive, I’ve been discarding all that knowledge and reclaiming the beginner’s mind when working on compositions. Not trying to break rules so much as ignoring them. Sometimes it works, often not. But I’m enjoying writing music again, whereas before — I didn’t like anything I was writing because it all sounded like what he and I had done back in the 90s and I was SOOOOO done with folk music with non-trad rhythms.

        I’ve forgotten what he (and others) had forced me to learn, and I am enjoying writing music once again.

  3. My least interesting thing: I’m almost completely indifferent about decorating for any holiday; I figure they can come and go without me doing much about them.

    My most interesting quality: I’m good at seeing connections between things and people and ideas. I find solutions and mysteries everywhere I turn, as my blog often demonstrates.

  4. Hmmmm….I’ll go with my ability to think about anything and come up with a blog about it (though there are those who would say that none of that is very interesting…πŸ˜†)
