n. (noun) A person who has an eccentric personality followed by various traits that similarly define them as an uncommon person, often considered hyper or energetic. Symptoms that often display a sign of being a gaffer include:

- constant dancing in public with/without music
- mumbling of obscure words that don't follow any particular language; spurting random noises
- acquires unique habits that many are attentive of (ex. sniffing food before eating it)
- sudden energetic impulses that may include shouting or jumping on random occasions

"Gaffer" can be translated also as gaffer syndrome, which may occur when a local person who acts like a gaffer spreads the "disease" to another person via spending time with them. It is highly contagious, and no known cure is found for it. Once infected, that victim is essentially a gaffer for the remainder of their life.
