I work as a freelance translator, so I don't meet actual people during office hours and only have e-mail contact with my clients. I mostly like that. And not having colleagues means I usually have tons of social energy to spend when I'm not working. (Pants being optional is always a nice part of the job. My boss is very relaxed about that.)
I fit fairly well into the category "humanist". After the gymnasium I studied Latin, history of ideas and Greco-Roman history. I've always found the natural sciences really interesting as well, but my mind wraps itself around grammar more easily than mathematics and formulas and stuff.
One of my favorite things to do in life is ending up at parties where I only know one or to people. Preferably just the host/hostess so my connection doesn't have much time to talk to me anyway. I like the challenge of getting to know strangers.
