My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There's a game, more interesting than your usual bland "getting to know you" material, where you try to present yourself as outrageously positively as possible without technically lying. And there's a second, related game where you try to make yourself sound like as big a loser as possible, again without explicitly saying anything false.

My self-summary based on the first game would look like this:

"By the numbers, Scott has five college degrees, speaks three languages, and has visited forty countries. He has climbed mountains in Nepal, treated earthquake victims in Haiti, and starred in a Mongolian music video. He is qualified as a medical doctor in both the United States and Ireland. His past paid jobs include primary school teacher, medical researcher, philosopher, and public relations work for a cabal of mad scientists trying to take over the world.

And my self-summary based on the second game would look like this:

"By the numbers, Scott has been arrested twice and spent several years in psychiatric hospitals. He has stabbed innocent people, slapped babies, and slept with other women while in a committed relationship with his girlfriend. He has just wasted nearly an hour of his life coming up with an online profile."

I'm pretty happy that the first paragraph is mostly less misleading than the second.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Every so often I'll get a call or an email from a friend sounding very concerned about a bump on their arm or a splitting headache or the like.

I'll listen very carefully as the problem starts sounding more and more dire, and finally I'll interrupt "You know, you really should talk to a doctor."

"But," they object, "you are a doctor!!"

"Oh," I say. "Right." Then I start to panic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making illuminated manuscripts, at least compared to the average resident of the Detroit metropolitan area.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite fiction books are by Umberto Eco, Salman Rushdie, Douglas Adams, J.R.R Tolkien, Aldous Huxley, Terry Pratchett, S.M. Stirling, Jacqueline Carey, Kim Stanley Robinson, Yukio Mishima, and far too many other good people to name. My favorite nonfiction books are by Douglas Hofstadter, Eliezer Yudkowsky, Bertrand Russell, and Abdul Alhazred.

My favorite movies, shows, music, and foods are whichever ones I can finish fastest so I can get back to the books.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Quiet. I hate loud noises and loud places and especially loud people. I'm easily startled and easily distracted and don't have normal people's noise habituation response. That means no bars, no clubs, and none of those parties with boom boxes and fifty people trying to speak at once.

2. Quorn. Back when I considered it a reasonable idea to become a vegetarian despite hating most fruits and vegetables, I survived by eating Quorn instead of food. It tastes almost as good, but it doesn't have any of that pesky fat or cholesterol or baryonic matter. I stopped being a vegetarian a couple of years ago, but Quorn still holds a special place in my heart and in my refrigerator.

3. Quests. I used to go on vacations, but those were boring so I switched to quests. Once I went on a quest to discover the West Pole and ended up in Slea Head, the westernmost point in Europe. Another time I decided to go old-school and went on a quest for the Holy Grail. I ended up in Glastonbury, England, where the Holy Grail is believed to rest at the bottom of a local well. They charged three pound sixty pence admission. It was kind of disappointing.

4. Quixotism. It's a good word, and I love the Don Quixote story. One of my goals in teaching myself Spanish is to be able to read it in the original. Until then, I content myself with listening to the soundtrack from "Man of La Mancha" a lot.

5. Quire. This is how I spelled "choir" up until the sixth grade, which incidentally is also the last time I was in an actual choir, and I'm keeping it to stick to the "q" theme. It's been a long time since sixth grade, but I still sing. A lot. Sometimes karaoke, sometimes in the shower, and sometimes I just break into song when the opportunity presents itself.

6. Qualia. I did philosophy in college and have a special interest in philosophy of mind. One time I sorta might have maybe as a joke created a philosophy role-playing game with a campaign where David Chalmers leads the armies of humanity against a plague of zombies. It kind of went viral on the Internet and snowballed until somehow the actual David Chalmers found out and said some very nice things about it. So on the one hand, one of the world's leading philosophers is aware of my existence; on the other, it's in the most embarrassing possible way.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Philosophy, politics, how to design a perfect language, travel opportunities, the books I'm reading, the books I want to write, the future, whether things have been supported by double-blind randomized studies with p < .05 and if not why not, ships, shoes, sealing wax, cabbages, kings, psychology, constructed worlds, what to write in online profiles, history, alternate history, education, why the human brain has such bizarre failure modes, effective altruism, utilitarianism, whether or not to use the Oxford comma when coming to the end of a paragraph-sized list of things one spends a lot of time thinking about, and the fundamental purpose and order of the Universe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sleeping. Why, what do you do at night?

Which isn't to say I don't keep myself amused. I'm trying to learn lucid dreaming, the practice of staying conscious through dreams and controlling them. I've had limited success and am running through a series of experiments. I've already established I can compose poetry in dreams, which means that left-brain systematic thinking isn't completely turned off, but I'm waiting for a good opportunity to test whether I can also solve math problems.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am polyamorous. I'm already dating a couple of people.

So you should message me if you're okay with that.

Or if you're not okay with that, but want to see if the healing power of love can save me from a life of sin.

Or if you're not necessarily interested in a relationship, but you want to cuddle, or discuss philosophy, or discuss philosophy while cuddling. I am so serious about this.

Or if you can come up with more sets of words in which all five vowels can be plugged into a single spot and the word remains meaningful (for example: "pat", "pet", "pit", "pot", "put")

Or if you don't describe yourself as "down-to-earth". Of all the places in the Universe you could be, Earth is literally the least interesting!
