What Does “Interesting” Mean?

Today in two separate classes my professors asked that we go around the room, say our name, and tell people something interesting about ourselves. What kind of question is that? I said that I can touch my elbows behind my back. I am totally uninteresting. What does being interesting even mean? What qualifies something as being interesting? This is what I will think about while I cannot sleep tonight.

One thought on “What Does “Interesting” Mean?

  1. I have never been able to answer that question adequately. In general, I find myself to be a singularly uninteresting person. Other people around me find me interesting, for some reason. My advice? Ask someone else you like what they find interesting about you, and use that.
