I would describe myself as having many facets and I tend to balance and complement the personalities of others. This certainly doesn't mean that I don't have opinions of my own nor that I won't speak up- it simply means that I am more empathetic than most.
While that may sound confusing it leads to events where I can get excited listening to someone passionately describe why metallic blue nail polish is better than gold, detailing their fascination with their work on protein conformational states (even though this is exciting anyway), or emphatically stating whatever it may be that is interesting to them. I like hearing what people find exciting or interesting; I love seeing what motivates them.
I am laid-back and can find the humor in any situation so getting along with people isn't very difficult for me. My sense of humor can be unusual but it generally ranges from witty and sarcastic to goofy and ridiculous- though it takes me a little bit to find the humor that works with each person.
