Are you a black sheep?

Well, in my work and in my home I'm very different from the rest, specially in this one.

I'm energic (despite my age cause I'm 27), I love to be positive, I'm sometimes optimistic, I love pop and rock, anime, video games, and cosplay, I love to try new experiences and I hate sedentary life and staying in the same place for long times. In the other hand my workmates are most of them over 40, 50 and even 60 love more vintage music, don't know anything about video games or anime, they have fear to new things and often feel lazyness about me when they hear about my activities, and they're not so positive about life, in fact they use to complain about everything XD

And that what makes me the black sheep of the groups I use to be =P Are you one too? What makes you one?

No, I am not in fact an ovine of the sable colored variety, good thing too as sheep are extraordinarily stupid.

Let me see if I'm understanding this. According to you -

You - young, active, hip, positive, fun-loving, generally awesome!

Them - old, dull, square, negative, lazy, fearful, complaining, why do they even bother to continue living?

"Black sheep" isn't really the appropriate expression here.

True. This being the Internet, we don't really know anything for sure do we? Nevertheless, I feel confident in asserting that OP is not an actual dusky-hued ovine based on the fact that their typing is coherent. I don't think that a real sheep of any color could manage that even with lots of practice. Also, when I googled "sheep typing" the only pictures were of white sheep. There was this one:



The legs are black, but the face is not. I suppose that the sheep could be bi-racial. But most likely it's just photoshopped.

Google is purporting racist stereotypes among sheep. Black sheep can type too. Just give them a chance, they can soar along with the white sheep!

I don't know. I'm the black sheep at work because I'm 21, uninterested in gossip, and don't have a crush on one of the managers. At school I'm 21, still uninterested in gossip, and don't spend my class breaks smoking in the gazebo and talking about lemons in people's trucks. That last one's still a mystery to me.

Everyone calls themselves black sheep. Maybe I'm a ginger sheep and just don't realize it. It would explain a lot.

People seem to be under the impression that "black sheep" means "better than everyone else".

"In the English language, black sheep is an idiom used to describe an odd or disreputable member of a group, especially within a family."

Black Sheep = odd one out.
Black Sheep =/= Better than everyone else.
