***As of August 2013, I am residing in the US again for the foreseeable future.***
I have had a profile on OkC intermittently since late 07. It has yielded me a bunch of good friends and one romantic relationship that ended amiably when I was getting ready to leave the country. Not a bad for a website which pretends to be run by tiny robots.
Most of the previous incarnations of my profile have been expressions of the poetic principle drilled into me in 7th grade English, "Show, don't tell." However, I am starting to suspect that my fellow OkCers value candor in this section above creativity. So, here it goes.
I have lived in many places in the US and on both coasts of Africa.
I cook reasonably well. I would like to think this is because I am patient and resourceful. However, I have some good cookbooks, which might be the real reason.
I am an ethical person. I do what I can best justify. That's very important to me.
The relatively homogeneous structure of these lines bothers me, but I'll learn to live with it.
OkCupid used to make you sum yourself up in three adjectives, for the benefit of those users too impatient to read an entire profile. For the record, I am intuitive, discerning, and analytical.
being an INTP
This is not low or self-deprecating standard. It is good to round out your rough edges. Indeed I have invested in that process. However, I have also done everything I can to work with what comes naturally to me.
In no particular order:
- the light that hits the room
- control and experimental groups
- how to explain my job to people
- how the subjective experience of cognition would differ for us and other entities that I can metaphorically endow with some form of intelligence, like insect swarms and chess pieces. The bishop thinks the board looks like a diamond to you too, by the way.
Also, why is the artistic merit of a song inversely proportional to the euphoria produced by dancing to it at a club?
On an atypical Friday night, I am at World of Beer or out of town. World of Beer would not be my idea of a good date, too loud.
On a Friday night of still greater rarity, I am down by International Plaza having dinner. This would make a more reasonable date destination than World of Beer, but only as a last resort.
"Without your wounds where would your power be? It is your melancholy that makes your low voice tremble into the hearts of men and women. The very angels themselves cannot persuade the wretched and blundering children on earth as can one human being broken on the wheels of living. In Love’s service, only wounded soldiers can serve.” - Thornton Wilder
When I speak Toposa, I pick up a slight lisp. You don't speak Toposa, so you will not notice.
I am not into being silly. I sometimes end up being silly anyway.
I refer to cities by their airport code. More people should do this.
you picked kissing in a tent in the woods over kissing in Paris when you answered that match question. Make no mistake, I have been to Paris and it is great, but life in a tent comes along with the career choices I have made. We could still kiss in Paris anyway. People have been known to do that.
