what is individuality?

rocketnews24:

My elementary school teacher told us this and I’ve never forgotten it: “If I tell everyone in the class to write the kanji for ‘sunny’ (晴), then each and every one of you is going to write it a little bit differently from each other. That’s what ‘individuality’ is. But, if I tell everyone to write the kanji for ‘sunny,’ and you write the kanji for ‘rainy’ (雨) instead, you might think you’re being cool by being different from everyone, but that’s not what ‘individuality’ is.”
