I'm intuitive, not emotional, and come across a bit cold at first. But I'm actually very warm, sensitive, empathetic, and have a high tolerance for all sorts of people and behaviors.
I want to laugh at inappropriate social situations and I always laugh at the parts in movies that no one laughs at.
After reading bell hooks' All About Love and becoming a person of faith, I know love is the answer to personal and greater social problems.
I love music and aleatoric sounds. When I first went to Japan, I made field recordings of the sakura song--cherry blossom tune that plays when the lights are green for pedestrians to cross--street sounds, and random conversations in bars.
I enjoy all food related activities from picking tomatoes and beets at farmers markets to chopping up animal parts, savouring the sound of food frying, and eating.
