Body Type
Atheism and it’s important
English (Fluently), Hindi (Fluently), Other (Fluently), German (Somewhat), Arabic (Somewhat)
My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I fluctuate unpredictably between intro and extrovert. A few things I love are music (learning to play the classical guitar), reading, debating, food and trying different cuisines, meeting people from different parts of the globe and travelling, trekking, hitchhiking and the whole 'not-resisting-the-unknown...'

I grew up in the Middle East. Qatar to be precise. Been living in India for the last 9 years. Currently working as a techie for a large multinational in Bangalore.

According to Myers-Briggs I am an INTJ ( I am not sure how seriously to take a test based categorisation of personality, but if it serves as a data-point to someone reading this then so be it)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Maximizing my utility
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
numbers and remembering precise facts. I give people who bullshit a hard time :D

I have been told that I'm pretty good at chess and poker. I know i enjoy them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

And I'm going to throw in a fan-fiction here, namely Harry Potter and The Methods of Rationality, the characters are way cooler than those Rowling created (And Ron doesn't exist :D); Tell me if you think otherwise after reading it :


Movies in English-
Sawshank, Schindler's List, Scent Of A Woman, As Good As It Gets, American History X, Pulp fiction, Inglorious Basterds, Eternal sunshine of a spotless mind, Lincoln, Requiem for a dream, Annie Hall

Foreign movies-
Oslo August 31, Mephisto, Der Untergang, Das Leben Der Anderen , Pan's Labyrinth, Auf der anderen Seite, Life is beautiful

Indian movies-
Gangs of Wasseypur 2, Ship of Theseus, The Lunchbox, Dedh Ishqiya2 (This last one I like as a mindless fun movie with some beautiful urdu poetry and the fact that it pays tribute to a homo-erotic novel called 'lihaaf' written in the 1940s which was then deemed obscene by the courts)
But I really do wish as a country we made better movies, especially given the rich Indian literary heritage.

Shows- Boston Legal, The Wire, first three seasons of HOUSE, Yes Prime Minister, Coupling . Saw a lot of promise in true detective and breaking bad but did not like how the former ended and the latter i thought was a tad disappointing after the first season.

Music, too many and too varied.

Food- Indian, Arab, Italian
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from a certain amount of time i need to be alone; any six things that can put me in a state of flow: music, books, a good movie and/or some competitive sport generally does the trick.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Rationality and biases of the human mind, sciences in general, psychology, morality, politics, football.
You should message me if
