My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To be totally honest, online dating scares me a little. That's probably associated with the fact that I don't know how to summarize myself with the right balance of pride and humility, not to mention humor and sincerity and whatever else is supposed to go into it. But here goes...

How bad could I be? I'm a neuroscientist (taking a temporary jaunt into policy, but a scientist at heart). I lived in Paris for a while. I love ridiculous action movies (my good friend says it's because I secretly wanted to be a spy... Alas, I am a terrible liar and this would never make it for a moment in the clandestine services). I collect old books and antique baseball paraphernalia. My favorite color is teal, and if you don't know what that is, our relationship will never work, because you have obviously never played with crayons pre-2003 (I'm willing to give a little, here, but if you don't like crayons, there's something more seriously wrong than a lack of familiarity with the complex color wheel; if you were too young to play with crayons in 2003, I'm too old for you). Politically, I lean left - quite far to the left. Let me say that again in another way, in case it wasn't perfectly clear: I AM VERY, VERY LIBERAL. Socially and fiscally. That won't be changing soon. My favorite game is trivial pursuit. Or Balderdash. It's so hard to choose! Travel is essential to my life, even though I haven't done as much of it as I'd like. I love my family and my friends; they are my anchor, and they mean the world to me. So yes, I am smart, sweet, and funny. I think that makes me a good person to get to know.

There's more, but I think it's best to stop there. Thanks for making it to the end.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to live up to my reputation.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
... lots of things. Like badminton. And crossword puzzles. And rotating objects in visual space.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My laugh. I've been told I have the laugh of a person at least twice my size.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Goodness gracious.
Books: Too many to count. Last conquest, "Mr. Penumbra's 24hr Bookstore". Slowly making my way through "Democracy in America", but aren't we all?

Movies: Likewise. I love movies, sometimes even bad ones.

Music: This changes with my mood.

Food: FRUIT. Love fruit. Nearly all kinds of fruit. Except honeydew melon. Can't stand honeydew. And why is it EVERYWHERE? It's like there's some massive conspiracy by the honeydew lobby to monopolize fruit plates across the nation.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, my friends, my sanity, my library card, my bathtub, and the oxford comma. It might not hurt to have my contacts, too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science. Thought. Law. Interpersonal/societal dynamics. Aesthetics. I also occasionally like to think about what major male celebrities and members of government would look like dressed as women. It helps relax me before presentations. Props to Jared Leto for surpassing expectations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... Somewhere. Hopefully.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an unnatural aversion to umbrella usage. (Seattlelites understand)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... You're funny, silly, and interesting and don't mind if I'm the same. Please, please don't bother if you're not ready for a long-term relationship. I'm not looking for a quick fix.
