I can be laid back, but usually only do it well with friends or better. I can be serious or intense (including about being laid back). I like the beauty of a good solution or approach, almost as much as purity in a person's approach to life, a well-executed piece of art or music, or a lovely figure or face.
I am studying math and economics, which is very empirical and often well-defined, but am intrigued by the intersection of value-systems, psychology, philosophy, and religions, which can be anything but.
I try to be sincere and say what I mean: finding flattery a waste of time yet have nothing against saying a word to acknowledge the good I see.
Like many people, I'm a work-in-progress. I'm not perfect, I don't know everything (and you can quote me on that).
I am, in some ways, an apparent contradiction, yet one quite at peace with myself, looking for a partner to join me in my war against that general class of indeterminate objects called obstacles, that they may be better overcome... Most of all, to overcome that great burden that is the solitude, the longing for the one who might let themselves be considered, in reciprocity, that special someone.
