My self-summary
Every time I've done one of those Myers-Briggs personality tests I come out with the opposite of how my friends would describe me. I think this says more than the test results. I think it says that I don't want to be in a box, and I work to make my weaknesses strengths. You may think it says I don't know myself. It's ok, you can't be right all the time. Having said that, I think I'm an ENTJ. When I wrote "having said that," I thought of Curb.

Also, I've never shot my hunting buddy in the face. I don't even hunt. I don't even own A gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting used to working in a law firm after years of working in a wood shop. Planning and executing home improvement projects. Researching land to buy in far away places. Being outside. Listening to podcasts. Walking the dog. Schmoozing at cocktail parties.
I’m really good at
Building things that won't fall apart
The first things people usually notice about me
I generally greet people with an approachable and kind disposition

Also, I generally don't make up facts to support unending ground wars in the Middle East for the purpose of profiting my former company and oil baron cronies
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Netflix or HBOGO (the wire, orange is the new black, curb, walking dead, arrested development, etc)
Non-fiction (New Yorker, biographies)
Podcasts (this American life, radio lab, wait wait, the moth)
Old School music (Dylan, Marley, Pearl Jam, Allman Brothers, Talking Heads, Beatles)
New Scool music (Buke and Gase, Bonobo, Emancipator, anything once)
Sports (baseball, soccer, Giants, UConn)
Eating out (sushi, Thai, good Mexican, etc)
Eating in (pasta, big breakfast, sandwiches)
News (NPR, Maddow, NY Times)
Fiction (not a ton recently...Cormac McCarthy, Hemingway)
Movies (Coen brothers, Godfathers, Waking Ned Devine, Inglorious Bastards, Spinal Tap)
Comedy (Daily Show, Colbert, Louis CK, Jim Gaffigan)
The six things I could never do without
I kind of hate this question because I'm a minimalist at heart. But for now, I'll say

NPR
Beer
Tools
Art
Music
A good pen (and paper)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to use the law for the good of others
Projects
How technology could end voter ID laws
Places to go
Where should I buy land
Carbon capture
How to do any given task more efficiently
What people will look back on in 50 years and say 'WTF were they thinking?'
The next great business idea/invention
What would happen if Mr. Smith went to Washington today?
On a typical Friday night I am
Since I hit my 30s Friday night has had a mellower feel. I'm often a bit wiped from a long week and have learned that a well-rested Saturday morning without a hangover is pretty good. So drinks and dinner, a movie, or even a show is great, but usually I'm not in for a "I hear the birds chirping and I'm still up" rager. Usually.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes get Hall and Oates songs stuck in my head.
You should message me if
Hey, don't let me tell you what you should do. It's your life...live it!

Also, there's no need to message me if you plan on being a weak President who I can manipulate into doing my bidding...some guys are into that, but not me
