    "You're perceptive for a man." I've heard this more than once.

    This is a great topic, and I'm glad you created a post about it as it brings back fond memories.
    The most memorable compliment I've ever received is from my friend J.T.
    In 1999 my wife and I were at a night club; it was a weekend where everyone we knew in town was going out, and many friends from out of town were back and doing the same.
    There was really no way to pre-determine a rendezvous point; the dance floor was liquid - people moved in waves as the D.J.'s set perpetually evolved; and the bar was a cheerful riot zone at it's calmest moment. You simply had to show up, and somehow bump into people to meet up with them to enjoy each others' company for the evening.
    Well, my wife and I got there before most everyone else. We hit the bar; my best friend Mark was working the bar that night so we had super-size cocktails that we were able to nurture on the dance floor while we waited to bump into everyone else.
    After about half and hour, I saw a few people I knew and started chatting with them on the dance floor. In no more than a few minutes I had them gathered up while telling some silly story in my usual very animated way of communicating. Once I hit the punchline my friends had this hysterical look of shock/mirth/disbelief on their faces that casued me to bellow out in laughter.
    Then out of nowhere, out of the fog cloud of hypnotic tunes, my friend J.T., grabbed my shoulder and spun me around yelling "Surprise!!!!" - and within a few seconds more about half a dozen of all the people we wished to see most that evening were right there in front of us.
    I was elated. I grabbed J.T. and gave him a massive ESTP bear hug and said "How did you find us, Bro?!" - and he said: "Alex, your voice, and your laughter is a beacon of joy - when we walked in here the first thing we heard over the music was you, and we knew exactly where you were, and now we're all together. Thank you for that."

    Many times in my life I've been told to quiet down, that I'm too loud, that I need to contain myself - it was that evening that I was able to cast all that non-sense aside and be at peace with my gregarious nature, and the volume of my ways.

    "You want to go to the senior prom with me?" <------ one of the hottest girls in high school asked me. Only problem was that she asked me in front of the whole class. Me being the shy guy couldn't say anything, lol. Wonder what would of happened if I'd say yes. I think I mentioned this in another thread about being more nuanced about asking people out.

    Felt like both a compliment and a confidence booster... it was one of the most memorable things that occurred in high school so many years back. Sort of like, you never know who seems to take a liking to you when you aren't even looking at them.

    One of my friends told me I'm one of the few people she can be completely honest with. (I don't believe that she's 100% honest with me, but that comment meant a lot to me.)

    Thanks for reviving this thread, Halla!

    Yes. The reason I created this thread was because the best compliments validate aspects of ourselves that go unvalidated or unnoticed. Amazing story!

    The subject has been analysed some month ago, but I felt like answering.

    The best compliment for me was : "You are very wise".

    Most of the time I am wise but... I rather seem crazy, so people can think I'm odd, rebellious, and unconventional.


    And I love playing with those two sides within myself.

    People who help me with my sometimes hidden wisedom are INTJ/INTP.

    Most of my best friends are INTJ.

    When I was in a hotel room with my gf and we planned to go get breakfast but she said to me: "I would rather stay here with you"

    My mom said I was wise. I'm not, but it felt really good.

    She also tells me from time to time that I remind her of her dad. He died over a decade ago, and she's still grieving the loss. She loved him more than anyone for most of her life. The idea that I remind her of him is bittersweet and gratifying. I also like it because my grandpa was laid-back and cool. He never asked me the familiar questions like "How are you doing in school?" and he didn't take part in family drama or gossiping. At get-togethers, he wasn't obnoxiously loud and drunk like most of my mom's family. He engaged with me on a level of silliness and cleverness that no other adult did. In all of my extended family, there's no one I'd rather be compared with.
