What is Goblin Mode?
Goblin mode is defined as “unapologetically self-indulgent, lazy, slovenly, or greedy behavior, typically in a way that rejects social norms or expectations.” “Goblin mode,” first seen on Twitter in 2009, gained traction in 2022 as people around the world arose with uncertainty from mandatory lockdowns imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, this is the first time when the phrase was chosen by public vote, from a list of three finalists chosen by Oxford Languages lexicographers: goblin mode, metaverse, and the hashtag IStandWith.
Despite being relatively unknown offline, Goblin Mode was the clear winner, receiving 93% of the more than 340,000 votes cast.
