How to Distinguish Yourself from the Other Guys

If you've always wanted to be the real McCoy in a room full of clones, this guide will help you set yourself apart from the pack with a few simple changes.


  • Step 1: Voice likes and dislikes Voice your likes and dislikes and don't always follow the crowd, just be prepared to explain why without being rude or brash.
  • Step 2: Add accessories Check out a thrift, charity, or vintage clothing store to find unusual accessories, such as a jacket, belt, hat or other interesting item.
  • Step 3: Order something unique Order unique or sophisticated-sounding drinks at bars and restaurants, and splurge on decadent desserts or entrees.
  • Step 4: Let yourself shine Shine at the club by dancing in an unusual way, or picking a strange karaoke song and rocking it harder than anyone else.
  • TIP: Be daring and take a risk, just don't get too out of control and offend someone.
  • Step 5: Know unusual trivia Pick up a deck of trivia cards or go online and learn interesting facts that you can bring up in conversation.
  • TIP: Pick a rare field of study or an uncommon class at school or at college to separate yourself.
  • Step 6: Be kind and courteous Be kind and courteous, always, even when you're trying to be eccentric and don't use alcohol as a way to break free.
