It's basically an "I'm special look at me" kind of deal, not a "I believe that I've found some deeper spiritual truth" thing, I reckon.

I'm sure there's some sincere Odin-worshippers out there as well, of course, but I suspect that a large proportion of converts are in it out of a desire to be deliberately different rather than genuine faith in Odin. Either that or a more general spiritual "all religions are true as each other, so I'm symbolically picking this one" sort of thing.

Yeah, I believe you're right. I can agree on that.
