Personality wise. Classic INTJ - so that is either good or bad depending on your perspective. But it means I am very driven and value self-discipline. I am also very introverted - probably a bad thing and not very good at subtle nuances. I usually say the wrong thing or make terrible social observations. Therefore, I prefer directness. I tend to form strong relationships with a few people rather than have lots of friends. I try not to take myself too seriously unless I have to. Been described as eccentric. I do my utmost to help anyone in my inner circle if they have problems, and quite protective. I have a strong code and stick to it. Oh! I am Lawful Neutral.
I also realise law students in general have a stereotype. I do not live up to the stereotype at all and take equal amusement at those trying so hard to meet it. Superficial people generally annoy me but I seem to be able to connect with a number of people. Or am blissfully unaware that I failed to make such a connection. Either way, I won't penalise you for spelling something wrong. As much as I appreciate good spelling etc people make mistakes and at the end of the day. Its the meaning behind the words that are important.
Science! I like sciency type things and would be very interested to meet people who would like to talk to me about such things (as a lay person). I have an interest in most things - although my mathematics falls rather short of permitting a complete discussion. Nonetheless, I do enjoy concepts, principles and ideas. Astronomy fascinates me and do enjoy zoology, palaeontology, geology, and other 'Earth Sciences'. But, I am not trained in these things and its more a passing interest than an active pursuit.
Classics! Well, I have an honours degree in Classics with particular focus on the Post- Roman Roman period. In particular Ostrogoths. If this term is new to you; don't worry - its one of those obscure things I like to look at. I think, like all people who study classics, this naturally leads to a wide range of sociological, literary, historical interests that go beyond the period (stuff I won't address for fear of making this too long). I do have a particular interest in the historical aspect of Roman history. However, you can generally capture my interest immediately with anything classics related.
That might all seem a little stuffy (I have a tendency to downplay those interests). I do have a soft spot for crosswords, board games, and other puzzle type activities. Mythology, RPG, fantasy type stuff is awesome. In that vein, also video games tend to interest me. Something with a good story appeals. Slightly surgically sewn to the internet. I usually use it while working or not so much working. I enjoy eating out and all the smaller pleasantries of life. I also enjoy pleasantly wandering around the hills of Christchurch. No doubt there is more to me, but I think this is a good starting point.
After they have processed that information (for better or worse). I will assume they take stock of first impressions. I am quiet and reserved, and probably quite unassuming. I tend to be a little awkward around people and it takes me some time to find my voice - so to speak. I usually lose this over the longer term, and if the meeting is important I can turn on my more assertive side. So social context plays a role. I think I tend to dress smartly, and probably have some air of professionalism. I do try.
So, it comes down to movies. I like those Ghost movies, Fantasy, Comedies, Sci Fi - usually something with a fantastical tinge. I don't have favourite movies per se, but I know what I like. Oh do like Hot Fuzz, Shaun of Dead, and End of the World. Being from NZ: The Hobbit, Lotr (I think its a little compulsory here). Anything historical gets my interest too....
TV shows are a little more memorable. Star Trek, Firefly, GoT (yeah), Futurama, Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Red Dwarf, Monty Python, Blackadder, I Claudius....
Not sure I will fill out the next 4 categories mainly because they would be frightfully dull.
