I'm an introvert geek, and I define myself not so much by my social
life and personality traits, but by my intellectual interests -
which are mainly mathematics and some forms of science and
technology. When I'm not working or self-learning, I mostly play
I also have some fairly strong ethical and moral positions. I
believe that there is right and wrong, good and evil. I believe
that people should be good and do the right things, and I try my
best to apply it personally. I can get angry when people don't.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a mathematician by training (and by heart), having a Master's Degree in mathematics from the Weizmann Institute of Science. I'm currently working on promoting digital currency technologies.
I’m really good at
Taking tests. Challenging myself to prove my knowledge and
abilities is something I find more fun than stressful, so I don't
suffer from any debilitating anxiety.
The first things people usually notice about me
That depends on the person, obviously. I suspect that very often,
people first think I'm a normal, reasonably nice guy; then they
find out I'm weird (I prefer "quite unlike any other person they've
ever met"); once they get to know me, they realize I can be an
interesting and dependable companion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My preferred form of entertainment is video games. My favorite
genres of games are RPGs and strategy games, such as Final Fantasy
VI and Master of Orion.
Books: I mostly read technical reference books, the details of
which I will not bore you with. As far as fiction goes, I enjoyed
The Dark Elf Trilogy.
Movies: I don't watch movies much, while I do watch some and like
some, I can't think of anyone deserving a mention here.
Shows: There are many good shows, some examples are The Simpsons,
Babylon 5, Cold Case, Scrubs, Everwood.
Music: The best music is found in video games. Anything composed by
Nobuo Uematsu is a gem. Alec Holowka is another great
Food: I like food! Anything goes - meat, fish, pastries, dairy...
These days I eat less than before, in an attempt to lose some
The six things I could never do without
"Never" is such a strong word, and striking a balance between
accuracy and uniqueness is difficult. Take the following list with
a grain of salt.
My family, my computer, pen&paper, cats, good food, and my own
physical & mental health.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Replace "about" with a period.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I often analyze everyday notions to see if they make sense
mathematically. For example, "The most private thing I'm willing to
admit", taken to mean a value at which the privateness function
obtains its maximum over the set of things I'm willing to admit, is
only guaranteed to have a meaningful answer if this set is finite.
In the infinite case, we are better off thinking in terms of
obtaining the supremum up to a small threshold.

you're a good person interested in a relationship with an
intellectual type who will do his best not to let you down.
