We're all a little quirky if we're really honest.

You might be crazy if you got really excited when you read this headline. Or you just might be curious. I think deep down, we all have those quirks that set us apart from our peers. We all have those "special things" about us. I've done a few crazy things in my life, most of which I will never repeat simply because it's not worth it. It was fun once, but you won't be seeing me doing it again. I'm sure you have your own list of weird things you've done before. Below is a short list of mine. Enjoy for your own amusement.

1. You might be crazy if you wash your face with toothpaste.

I've actually done this a couple of times. It's refreshing. Just don't get the toothpaste in your eyes. It stings.

2. You might be crazy if you check your alarm 15 times before going to bed.

A little over a year ago I overslept my alarm and was almost an hour late for work. I don't know if I just set my alarm wrong or what, but ever since then I've set two alarms every single night of the week and check them again and again before I go to bed. I'm neurotic.

3. You might be crazy if you drink 4 giant cups of coffee on the daily (this doesn’t include cups of tea).

I know some people drink more than this, but most folks I talk to are surprised to find out that I drink several cups a day. I just LOVE coffee. I love the smell, the taste, and the fact that when I drink it I feel ready to take on the world!

4. You might be crazy if you “accidentally” found out the schedule of the guy you have a crush on and know exactly where he’s going to be every moment of the day.

Not gonna lie, this is pretty embarrassing. I've done this a couple of times

5. You might be crazy if you stand when you eat, instead of sitting down.

I don't know what it is exactly. I just prefer to stand. Don't worry, though, you won't see me standing at a restaurant or when I'm over at someone's house for dinner. I sit like everybody else. Standing would be weird, duh.

6. You might be crazy if you listen to disco music to help yourself fall asleep at night.

I don't like soft, slow music when I'm trying to fall asleep. It's backwards, I know.

7. You might be crazy if you tried flushing the toilet paper tube down the toilet when you were well past the age of “just seeing what happens.”

Now this one I can't really justify. It just sort of happened. I don't know what went through my head, but I thought it'd be fun to see what happened. Nothing cool happened, I'll tell you that.

8. You might be crazy if you love Mondays.

It's true, I LOVE Mondays. It's the start of a whole new week. Let's go!

9. You might be crazy if you tell yourself that you aren't crazy.

I've actually stopped telling myself this. There was no point in repeating something that wasn't true.

10. You might be crazy if your whole family tells you you're crazy.

Yes, my whole family tells me I'm a little strange. Because I am.

11. You might be crazy if you read this and agree with all of it.

100% agree.

2. Or better yet, find a local restaurant that you’ve all been wanting to try.

3. Go shopping at each others' favorite stores.

4. Tie balloons with positive messages inside of them to random places in your town to uplift a few souls.

7. Make your own sushi.

8. Plant flowers in little pots for your homes.

9. Road trip to random local cities and do some exploring.

What It's Like Being An Introverted Leader

Different people lead differently.

When you think of the qualities a leader or someone in a leadership position should have, being out-going is often mentioned. However, I don't think that always has to be the case. I've been a part of many different leadership opportunities and programs, yet I'm still the same socially awkward hermit I've always been. Being out-going and extroverted doesn't qualify someone to be a good leader, just like being shy and introverted makes you a bad one, it's about your skills.

When I went to a leadership program at a summer camp, I often heard that I didn't talk very much or I was too quiet and shy for a summer camp entertaining kids, I should have been more talkative. I'd also get a few counselors coming up to be that when they were in the same program I was in, they were also the same things I was and not to worry about it. Even now, I'm still quite and relatively shy person, but that doesn't discredit my ability to be a good leader, or anyone else's.

In my high school ASB (Associated Student Body) class, we took a fun personality test to find out what kind of leaders we were; someone who likes to be in charge, be in the spotlight, more organized, or stay in the background. I got someone who likes to be in the spotlight, which was a surprise to me too, but thinking about it, it makes sense. I'm not overly out-going, but given the right motivation, I don't mind going up to people and striking up a conversation.

I can also say that at some point I have possessed all four of these personalities or traits over the course of my different leadership roles. The reason I'm even bringing this personality test up is that it definitely shows that there are different types of leaders out there, and not all of them have to be extraverted. I tried to find the one I took but couldn't find the exact one, but if you're interested there are a ton of different ones out there.

Over time, I've learned and worked on many valuable skills, like conflict resolution, time management, actually listening to what others have to say, and more. I keep myself up to date with my surroundings and what's going on in the world, and I still meet and hang out with people, when I have time. People grow and learn on their own pace, we should let them without overly critiquing them.

In the end, whether someone is out-going or not shouldn't determine the ability they have to be a good leader, sure in some cases it's better to more extraverted, but it's not a make or break trait. So long as they have their mind in the right place and know how to handle different tasks and situations, it doesn't matter.
