My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in Portland for 12 years, my Myers-Briggs personality type is INTJ, and I am a force to be reckoned with.

I've answered too many questions here...and I don't believe in "match percentages" as probably 2/3 of us on this forum aren't buying anything. And at the same time we're overselling. It's just another example of how insane humans are!

Wouldn't life be so much easier if we were all honest with ourselves?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Big picture: I'm continually failing forward in order to achieve success in life. I am continually influencing people (for the good) and shedding trappings of mediocrity -- because my life's task is to live at a much higher level than I am right now.

Medium picture: For work I empower small business owners to be more productive, profitable, and to protect their most important asset: their businesses.

Small picture: I play the bass guitar/electric bass and have done so for 19 years. It is without question the greatest instrument invented ever because when it is played with skill it can bring an audience into a concert from off the street!

This was a fun performance. "Dead End Street" by The Kinks, with horns. I'm semi-conducting the horns:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Many things. This was said about me by my 2nd grade teacher in 1988: "...has so many interests and enjoys learning new things. I feel that it's difficult for him to organize these thoughts and get them down in writing. Sometimes the children can't follow a story that (I'm) telling (perhaps for the same reason).

Writing aside, not much has changed.
The first things people usually notice about me

It depends on the "audience". If the audience is engaged and interested then it's my eyes and kind face. If the audience is completely disinterested at first glance, then it's usually whatever the first thing is that puts them off.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This information is all too easy to get hung up on! I do have my own personal hifi guru, though...which is really cool.

Art is too subjective to go throwing out judgments based upon taste. I know I have excellent taste music. I've lived under a rock in terms of movies, but I don't care, and neither should anyone else. "It Takes A Thief" is one of my favorite TV shows. And I was -8 when it last aired in 1971.

I love this song, though:

Food is really important to me, largely because a complete primal lifestyle change in 2010 combined with a large amount of knowledge gained working in the food industry with a niche food company. All that needs to be said is for people to read the first chapter of "The Primal Blueprint" by Mark Sisson. I hate only one thing in life...wasting food.

FYI, most of the health problems that exist today are because of what people think is food, but isn't.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ketosis. A means of getting from Point A to Point B. Merino wool -- and now cedar hangers, learning the hard way. My job. My family. Clean sustenance -- including organic pu-erh tea. It's magical. And I need to buy more.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Tasks at hand. The socio-economic mutual gender independence paradigm shift America is in the middle of. Social media and the sexual empowerment of a woman's body...and how some men react to it in a fucked up manner. How much I should give up coffee...because 1) the coffee at work is crap and 2) I drink too much of it. Why people romanticize dating pre-internet...when let's face's always sucked for the over 30 crowd. Who the hell are these people who think they're "drama free"? Are they dead?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes I have a gig on Fridays. Most of the time I wind down from the work week. Sometimes I go out after work with coworkers and play enhanced table tennis. It just depends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a very strong right middle finger.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
First and foremost you are buying a relationship: the process of having the courage to let someone into your life as well as having the courage to allow someone else into your life.

You have the courage to take real risks (well beyond meeting a stranger for coffee at 2 p.m. on a Tuesday) and have the courage to go out with someone more than once, especially if you have a good time the first time around.

You have the courage to get out of your own way or at least recognize that it's a good idea to get out of your own way. I have to remind myself to do this every once in awhile, too.

Email is one of the most powerful tools used in business on a daily basis as of RIGHT NOW. That people find it "strange" as a dating tool are hung up on themselves. This is how it works in the REAL WORLD. I think a lot of great people are hung up on this but are also curious at the same time or are just in need of distractions.

Our time is too valuable to wasted on distractions. This is my call to action.
