I treat people how they deserve to be treated. Show me that you deserve respect. I'm not saying that I'm a dick to you off the bat. Everyone gets respect until you show that you don't deserve it.
I'm a nerd. Though I have appropriate social skills, am hygienic, and try and dress myself well. I have my lazy days in a tye-dye and crappy jeans, but that only for around the house.
I am very level-headed. There are extremely few reasons to get upset at any situation, it just clouds judgement. I have a few strong convictions on some subjects, and that is the only time that someone would see me angry. I do hate willful ignorance, when someone isn't willing to better themselves due to laziness.
I can also be summed up pretty well by saying that life is too short to be bashful. Go for what you want.
Two good quotes, appropriate because of the site:
"I'm not like most girls." -most girls
"I'm not like most guys." - most guys
