I think about 90% of all users here would agree that writing self-summaries is hard. Especially when they are the first thing you are going to get to know about a person here, apart from their picture.
As self-perception and outside perception often vary wildly, I will only give quotes by good friends of mine:
You are one of the least superficial people I have ever met.
Sometimes you can be a real know-it-all. Problem is, most of the time you are right.
No! Don't look at me like that! I can see that you know what I am thinking!
It is so easy to laugh with you.
You are so easy to be around, it makes me uncomfortable.
I just love spending time with you, you understand me so completely.
What I’m doing with my life
I think it is interesting that most people answer this question with their occupation... I hate the idea that my job defines my life. Personal growth, openness, acceptance and happiness are far more important than where I get my money from. But for whomever is interested:
Jobwise I have no idea where my life is headed. I finish my PhD now, but who knows what comes next? Central bank? Professional gamer? Author?
I’m really good at
Writing, singing, grammar, games, thinking, understanding
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, my eyes, my hair, my positive attitude
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I very seldomly read nowadays, as I read a lot of work-related papers. But I read a lot up until a few years ago, mostly classics, fantasy and science books.
So many movies, so little time... I could start listing all the amazing mindfuck-movies out there, but I won't :-)
I watch more TV shows than movies, and if you like a series, I have probably seen it. Except mad men. And downton abbey.
Concerning music I basically like some songs in every genre... I have playlists for pop, rock, metal, etc... but I think my true musical passion is EDM, especially deep house and chill out stuff.
The six things I could never do without
My SO, my PC, my friends, internet, Coke-Zero, toothbrush
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Society, relationships, and people in general. As I am a person as well, I therefore also think about myself :-) In particular what really makes me who I am, and what society and nurture have made me think that I am and should be.
Also: Why this particular variable isn't significant although it would be really intuitive if it were.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing boardgames with friends, playing games over the internet, having some drinks with friends, watching series.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have trichotillomany.
You should message me if
You want good company and do not shy away from private questions or a guy who wants to understand who you are.
Or as someone else put it:
I hate small talk. I want to talk about atoms, death, aliens, sex, magic, intellect, the meaning of life, faraway galaxies, music that makes you feel different, memories, the lies you have told, you flaws, your favorite scents, your childhood, what keeps you up at night, your insecurities and fears. I like people with depth, who speak with emotion from a twisted mind. I don't want to know "what's up".
