I would say "not crazy at all" -- but that, in and of itself, would be (of course) crazy.

I think of myself as fairly eccentric, but not very crazy.

For me part of the distinction is whether or not I'm aware of how far off "the norm" my way of being is, and how well I can integrate my way of being with a social-gestalt way of being.

By whose yardstick? For me that is where the answer lies. I'll just answer by my own, accepting that according to another's yardstick the answer might now seem accurate. :)

Er, NOT seem accurate. iPod. Big thumbs.

Really? Have you seen the wings and pointy ears? Seriously, woman.

Moderation is good, right? =)

Everything in moderation, including moderation.

A little crazy for both Good and Bad types of crazy. Used to be crazier for both types of crazy, but have been able to heal the bad crazy without losing too much of the good crazy.

I like to think of myself as more enthusiastic than crazy. Or perhaps ambitious in my capacities and commitments? Something-something-darkside.

As compared to who?

It depends on the day that you ask me.

I almost downgraded myself from "very" to "moderately" because I'm pretty good at defining the crazy, but that doesn't not actually negate it. =)

I feel like responding "very weird but very sane". I picked "not crazy" but crazy has different axes so no answer is quite right.

People who say, "Crazy in comparison to what/whom?" are kind of missing the point, I think. It's not about "Well, that guy is totally crazier than me!" Perhaps it's better to say "How well can you interact with the world without having to tailor it?"

Me, I'm fully functioning crazy. My crazy does not generally get in the way of me having a good life and it doesn't splash on other people randomly. I am a lot more sane than people who want something from me and can't have it believe, though. ;)

Mostly I have quirks that require continual addressing, in order to behave sort of NT (like not being able to work effectively if my desk is not clean or if I'm reminded of other work that isn't done yet). I can mentally muscle myself into cope if I've gotta, but it leads people to believing that I'm angry when all I'm really doing is... Motivating And Doing Stuff.

I am a lot more crazy right now than I ever have been in my life. I don't like it, and I suspect it's not forever, but bleah 2 months of crazy bleah.

'Perhaps it's better to say "How well can you interact with the world without having to tailor it?" '

I really like the way this is put.

I probably spend too much time in the DSM-IV to answer this question. When i read how many idiosyncracies are considered to be features of a disorder, almost everybody starts seeming crazier. On the other hand, the people i work with who are unable to function in society due to their major mental illnesses look more and more normal. Hmmm.

I've even got the certificate to prove it around here somewhere!
