Is it normal i don't have interest in new popular things?

Whenever something new gets popular and everyone is talking about it, I honestly lose all the interest in it and don't even feel like trying that new thing. For example, I see Squid Game everywhere now and that makes me automatically uninterested in it for no specific reason. Does anyone else here experience something like that?

Is It Normal?

  • I remember being a kid in the 1970s, and not wanting to see Star Wars for the very same reason!

  • yes! i have avoided so many shows like game of thrones, twilight, to all the boys, and much more just cause everybody seems to be obsessed with them and i automatically think its overrated.
    i figured it was because i didnt want to be a victim of peer pressure, so in this quarantine i tried some other popular things like "dark", money heist, and anime in general. i can understand the hype of these now, and it was worth it to discover these myself.
    but really i suggest seeing the trailers and description of these shows first and decide for yourself if you like it or not, chances are these are actually good!( like squid game)

  • Some of the newer trends sound uninspiring and boring to me. Not sure if it's me or anyone else.

  • Im like that too. When there's new trends I never jump on them except on maybe cryptos. I keep my eye out on the new ones.

  • I think trendy things with a huge hype around them tend to get old really fast, which probably contributes to the loss of interest. It is tiring hearing about something constantly for awhile!

    I tend to get sick of the same stuff that stays popular for a long time and seems to be EVERYWHERE too (especially more long-lasting trends like music/movies/pop culture, fashion, decor, etc.), and like something a bit different that seems like a breath of fresh air. However, I like what I like, whether it happens to be trendy at the moment or not. But, something that starts out as "meh" and gets overused/overplayed quickly turns into something I'm sick of, and even more so if I don't care for it to begin with.

  • Not normal imo. I go with whatever I enjoy doesn't matter if it's popular or not. It shouldn't matter how many people watch something, if you enjoy it that's all that matters.

    • It's not that I do it on purpose to be edgy or something, I just honestly lose all the interest in trying a new thing that all people are hyped about. I might eventually try it out after 2 years if I think it's worth it lol.

  • No. Not really. I didn't like Game of Thrones but it wasn't because of the hype around it.
