Uniqueness is a state or condition wherein someone or something is unlike anything else in comparison.[1] When used in relation to humans, it is often in relation to a person's personality, or some specific characteristics of it, signalling that it is unlike the personality traits that are prevalent in that individuals culture.[2] When the term uniqueness is used in relation to an object, it is often within the realm of product, with the term being a factor used to publicize or market the product in order to make it stand out from other products within the same category.[3]

The notion of American exceptionalism is premised on the uniqueness of the West, particularly its well-defined secularism.[4]
