My self-summary
I'm Italian, or at least so says my passport. Regardless, I don't watch nor care for football, I don't usually drink coffee, and I can be surprisingly quiet and calm. I've been told these are unusual traits, in an Italian.

I have never really lived in my home-town, as I started travelling from a young age. Actually, I have never lived for more than 4 years in the same city or country, and have no idea of what it is like, to be "rooted" in a place, to feel nostalgic about it..

I'm kinda introvert, and usually prefer to hang out with a small group of good friends rather than with a crowd of strangers. I sometimes try to push my boundaries, but I mostly fail. I love spending time by myself, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy doing stuff with other people too.

Mostly, I am naturally at peace with myself and others. In practice this means that I hardly ever get annoyed or angry, and that I naturally avoid any type of drama in my life. I am surprisingly honest, and quite shameless.

I try not to judge other people unless I have a clear idea of what their background is, and where they're coming from. Life and human behaviour are both complicated matters, and trying to simplify things as plain right/wrong, smart/stupid, cool/lame, etc, doesn't really simplify things. When you're with me, you can feel free to do anything you want, so long as it does not harm or harass others.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm on a PhD program in Robotics and Machine Learning at the University of Stuttgart. At the same time, I am following German courses at the VHS.
I’m really good at
Sleeping, poker, board and card games in general, ice-skating, looking as if I'm bored or annoyed when I'm not.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ear-ring, my very dark and impenetrable eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Purely fiction, either thrillers (dexter, the diceman), sci-fi (asimov) or fantasy (harry potter, game of thrones), just stories of weird people or events (Norwegian Wood). I also enjoy reading text-books about the subjects I work with.

Movies: As above, with the addition of cartoons and musicals of various sorts (JCS, The Book of Mormon, Wicked, Pippin, Hedwig and the angry inch, etc.. ).

Shows: British panel shows (QI, 8 out of 10 cats, big fat quiz of the year, etc..)

Music: Definitely not a music snob, I can live with anything. Kinda do like rock and indie rock a bit more. I do tend to listen more Daft Punk, Foo Fighters, the Shins than other stuff..
The six things I could never do without
A good novel.
A good text book.
My computer.
My backgammon board.
My running sneakers.
Ice skates.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cognitive biases.
Alternate realities.
Whether someone in the future will be thinking my same thought.
Whether someone in the past has thought my same thought.
Whether they will think or have thought of me as someone in their past or future who has thought their same thought.
How to win at everything.
Which parts of my personalities are just learned behaviour, which parts are built-in human nature, and which parts are truly "me".
Whether we have free will.
On a typical Friday night I am
By myself I enjoy browsing the internet, watching a movie (or some nice british panel shows), studying, reading, playing online poker, practicing my poor guitar skills, skyping and/or chatting with friends.

When I'm in a company I enjoy watching a movie, playine some board/card game, going out drinking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty shameless when it comes to saying embarassing/private things about myself, but I'm wiser than putting unnecessary things online.
