Symptoms of being fringe include: (a) bringing up vague and confusing topics of conversation at any given time, such as the Tao Te Ching or John Lennon; (b) rapid mood swings, more commonly aggression or despair; (c) telling pointless jokes and laughing for an extensive period of time, and then crying afterward.

A guy or girl that seems to have many parts of them in different stereotypes at once while still being themselves. Since they don't really fit into a particular stereotype he seems to be on the fringe of all of them, so people have a hard time putting them into one. Usually attractive(in order to fit in with almost anyone)and are pretty smart but don't apply themselves. Also listen to many different genres of music. Some people think they are rebels, posers, outsiders, weird, or whatever. But they don't give a shit who her friends are as long as they're cool & don't annoy the piss out of everybody. They hate the people who try too hard to be something and don't usually like to brag. Fringes can be really loud but also tend to be quiet. It all depends on who it is.
