It's a frustrating balancing act between persuasion and honesty on a profile. I'm trying to be honest here, so please forgive me if I fall back to humor to blunt my edges. It's sort of my go-to when I'm uncomfortable. On the bright side, I'm REALLY good at humor.
Aside from being a joker, I see myself as principled and empathic. Balancing those two things isn't always easy. It seems as if the two things would go hand in hand, but there are plenty of situations where doing what's ethical feels cruel, and doing what feels correct would do a great deal of damage to others.
I'm a very curious person. I constantly seek truth, and when truth cannot be found (which is pretty much always), I settle for facts. Thanks to this curiosity, and thanks to years of hanging out with really nerdy friends, I have a great deal of knowledge that I love to share.
