Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like trying out new things - recently, I started bouldering with
some friends. It's nice to notice how one gets better with some
I sometimes feel overwhelmed by how short our life is compared to
all the things one can do.
Doing sports, I take pleasure from the feeling of being in the
moment, and it also provides satisfaction of having done something
healthy afterwards. I prefer team sports like volleyball, but also
enjoy the one-on-one competition of tennis - I play about once or
twice a month with a colleague.
Metal is my favourite music genre since my teens, and I still go to
clubs like Final Destination with my friends when we find the time.
Alternatively, we enjoy watching something new in the english
theater or trying to wrap our heads around the rules of a new board
I like meditation. When stressed, it helps me put things into
perspective, and when calm, its just some enjoyable leisure time.
Meditating in small groups is one of the most potent experiences I
had, and I like to share this kind of experience with others, if
they are so inclined.
I also like visiting new places. If I can combine it with sports,
its the best of both worlds. This summer, I went trekking to
Thuringia with my best friend. He's a biologist, and it was an
amazing tour. We saw some really rare plants, and a deer crossed
our path only two meters ahead of us. It was a beautiful moment.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved this October, from one of the small towns around Frankfurt
to Frankfurt proper. It's awesome! I live in a shared appartment
with some friends - both because it's easier to share all the
boring house-keeping tasks, and because we can spend more of our
free time with each other.
Work is an important part of my life: I'm in a small business
consultancy that was founded just 6 years ago, and being able to
contribute to its growth is intensely satisfying. We try to keep
work and life balanced, though, so I usually have enough free time
on my hands.
I'm politically interested and love discussions on politics,
philosophy and economics. The pace of current developments is
stunning, we're living in very interesting times indeed. Currently,
I'm not actively participating in politics, but I ponder becoming
more active in the SPD after finishing a time-intensive learning
program I'm taking part in for the next two years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things that came into my mind were sports and making
people laugh by laughing myself.
The same friend as above and below told me that I'm really good at
analytical problem-management and rational thinking - which I hope
is true, but sometimes doubt.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I asked a good friend about this. I know him for quite a while, so
I can't be sure he remembers exactly what he first noticed. What he
told me was: physically, I have a really distinctive chin.
Concerning my behavior, he first noticed that I talk very
deliberately, sometimes making breaks to find the most fitting

I like reading fiction. It helps to alleviate stress. While
non-fiction can have the same effect, I'm not always in the mood to
digest something by Kahnemann directly after work. Among the
fictional works I enjoy, there's a lot of science fiction and
fantasy. I kind of hit the lucky pot - a very prolific writer (John
McCrae) started out with a science fiction/superhero story and
currently writes a fantasy story. He publishes two to three
chapters per week, which is a nice pace.
I'm not a big movie-goer, I prefer shows. The last movie I watched
in cinema was The Hobbit, Part Two.
Shows are really time-intensive, especially as I share the bad
habit of binge-watching with most of the internet. There aren't any
shows I currently watch, as both Doctor Who and Game of Thrones are
My taste in music hasn't changed a lot since I was a teen - I
mainly listen to metal, with some pop, rock and other genres
sprinkled in if the particular song happens to be something I

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- A healthy measure of fun with friends. I'm pretty
success-oriented and sometimes need a reminder to relax
- My family. I have six elder siblings and loads of uncles and
aunts. We're pretty close to each other, and I like being part of
- Skype. A lot of the people I'm close to live far away, and I want
to stay connected.
- Sports. Bodily activity just feels great, I wouldn't want to miss
that kind of feeling.
- Work. Apparently, there are many people who don't like there
jobs, so I'm very happy to have found something that appeals to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm a perfectionist, so sometimes I doubt myself more than what
would be warranted.
