Generally speaking, most goths hate the title. those that actually like the title are more often than not posers. They generally wear black, but many just wear colors that people won't expect (example: neon paisly-pattern pants (yes, i actually know someone that wears them on a regular basis)).
Goths are generally seen as depressed or clinically insane, but this is not neccesarily true. The depression came from the black clothes, i think, and the clinically insane rumor -so far as i know- sparked because they tend to be very open about conflicting sides of themselves -like a conscience and a rebel and all those other wierd urges- and some that i know give their contrasting sides names. hence shcitsophrenia rumors.
And no, goth is NOT in the music one listens to! some rides on the lyrics, but what really matters is WHY a person listens to their music. I actually have goth friends that admit to liking a few Britney Spears songs (*cold shivers*).
"Are you thinking what I'm thinking?"
"Probably not, but I don't really want to wait for you to explain whatever you were going to explain, so yeah! great idea! You wear the fake beard, I'll hide in the ventilation shaft." <--actual dialogue
