My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
On whichever personality test you prefer, I’m in the category with the subtext: “Is deeply skeptical of personality type indicators from a rational perspective, but if you wouldn’t mind staying up until two in the morning sentimentally talking about personality type indicators he would kind of like that.” I swear I get this result every time.

My life is a gradual slope from “Dear Lord experiences are terrifying and people are weird” to “You know, this isn’t so bad and actually kind of exciting, want to hang out later?” The steady stream of great people beating good sense into me has been pretty helpful for this.

I have lots of different groups of friends who have in completely different perspectives on life. When they unwittingly find themselves in the same room, it’s like watching a conversation from my own head.

I have a few intensely valuable and recent experiences that are what make this profile read how it does, and I’m sure the same is true for you. I would probably enjoy talking about these things with you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Medium term, I work on creative projects with a bunch of talented people who span the whole artistic-to-mathematical spectrum, and so far I’ve made a living off this.

Long term, I'm trying to learn as many valuable pieces of wisdom and practical skills as I can, to figure out why the world doesn’t function so well and to find ways to make it work a little better. This is best achieved with appropriately spaced-out pilgrimages to places and communities nowhere near a city, and also with lots of books and local discussion groups.

Short term, I recently quit my job where I worked on a huge video game (one your aunt has heard of), to start a business and work on a much smaller one that people will like for reasons that are non-terrible.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Caring about things that are hard to care about, relating in some way with every kind of person, and internally questioning the merits of my unspirituality and irreligiosity.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If you take a gander on the right side of this profile, you'll see a blandly printed "Atheism." This is a fairly recent innovation for me, and a big one. Up until not too long ago it would have read "Christianity," and this switch has been the most important thing to happen to me, probably in my entire life. I've been lucky to find true the saying, "If you let go of the rope you might find solid ground inches beneath your feet." Goodness, hope, and community haven't left me yet, and if nothing else I get the chance to relate to one more kind of person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Finding somewhere quiet to be to balance out the week's noise.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have the time or the crayons to explain.
