because of this my about section will not satisfactorly represent me (I'm guessing most reading it will have a false general perception of me) this is partially why I answered so many questions, because those are direct and specific enough for me to know what to say/answer (although with time more of them become outdated as I change my mind about things, but I try to keep them updated). I've also noticed some of my personality section traits are way off what I perceive myself to be.
I'm since improving this section by: after reading other people' sections when I notice something that I identify in myself and add that with my opinion of myself regarding it.
I suppose I am calmer then most, at least on the outside.
I don't talk as much as most but not so much because I don't like talking, more because with most people they seem not to be interested enough in my talkings, and so I don't (I can talk to myself in my head if I want to talk for the sake of talking, I talk to others for them to listen, so if they don't want to listen, I see no point in talking).
I've been told I'm somewhat unsociable, but in my view I'm just less interested in most people then most people (I am more picky in whom to socialize with) and don't socialize just for good manners (also people probably get this impression because of the "not talking much" I already explained). But when I am with people with common interest in socializing and talking I can talk endlessly (I remember IE with one work colleague in cape town we ended up talking for hours afterwork, on the pavement in front of the restaurant into the night).
I'm also told I'm weirder and stranger then most, which I agree with in my lifestyle, but think more people would be more like me if they didn't abide so much to social-manners which most people seem to not want to abide by, but do anyway (for some reason).
I don't need to spend money to have a good time (one of my favorite songs is: "bear necessities") in fact spending money decreases the value of the bought because it cost money, and given I have to do things I don't like for that money, thus the activity includes the working activity I do for the money that payed for the activity. I also dislike going eating out and going out to noisy crowded bars and such. cafes are nice, but I prefer a park by far (when it's not too cold; or raining obviously).
I have an eclectic interest; open mind.
I like to think I like everything but at the moment I have my preferences.
I'm very free in my ethics; basically anything goes as long as no intended (or careless) physical harm is done to other humans or their property.
the only thing I fear is being tortured (physical, mental, or any other way I can't think of) by anyone or anything (so by a horrible disease or accident included).
I am bisexual, but I'm more attracted to women then men (I'd say about 20:1)
politically I identify myself most with the libertarian view in general. basically do as you like as long as you don't initiate force upon other humans or their property is fine by me. but when managing shared property/goods/resources I think it's best to (only) enforce rules that deal with "tragedy of the commons" situations.
I grew up till 9yo in amsterdam, then in Lagos, portugal till I finished highschool, then lived in capetown with my father to live with him and get to know him (we lost contact when I was a baby and only spend a couple of months together in my mid teens) then rented a room for the second half of my 1 and 1/2 year stay in CT, then lived and traveled in some EU countries for ~3 years, then attempted to study (jazz drummer) but gave up at the end of the 1st year for many reasons, and have since been just living and exploring and learning, no plan, just as long as I have my needs satisfied (which I also consider my purpose in life: to fulfill my needs (basically I just try to feel satisfied, content, comfortable, good, as much as possible, which I achieve by fulfilling my needs)
I'm trying/planning to move to the country, but the lack of security and decent internet connection (and money to spend on good security and decedent internet connection) has been keeping me off for a couple years already.
