Most people still think that being different or W.E.I.R.D. is bad but it's a spectacular talent or something special and you should share it no matter what every one else thinks.

Not to solve but hopefully persuade and change perspectives of people.

They learn the significant of their their own differences and they also have fun along the way

Mine lets you know what's inside your self and things you can do to learn about yourself

I think this is an awesome idea for a campaign/movement. You should plan to take this farther and even go as far as to sell merchandise such as W.E.I.R.D cups. A good example would be the "Keep Calm" brand. I would advise to plan to take this somewhere because there is so much potential for you and your cause is great. I am always open to chat if you'd like advice.
