I'm trying to appreciate more of what moments have to offer. Still, I like to keep an eye on the future, indulging in over-analyzing ... & chocolate (& digressions). On the road of life, spotting potholes doesn't detract from the journey, it just makes it smoother! As does communication, and I'm big on that. If you aren't you may very well think I'm selfish. ...I could not possibly comment.
Generally, my INTJ personality type fits me, ...except when it doesn't, such as when my idealism shows me to be impractical. Honestly, my spiritual side is more a source of existential comfort than everyday confidence. Philosophical Taoism also resonates. I'm an idea-driven, "work smart, not hard" type who seeks more originality than he manages, and evinces a mix of Gen X & Y. I'm quite metaphorical, so a female Joe Friday wanting "just the facts" from me may feel like a hamster in a wheel going nowhere ...carrying a badge!
I'm quite interested in politics, and always up for a spirited exchange about issues of the day. I place a premium on freedom - uncertainty scares me but I won't chain the entrepreneurs among us, nor equate political limits with indifference. I value empathy and especially complexity, but something I really miss about the 90s was the weaker focus on "values", which more room for self-definition. On a lighter note, I enjoy taking in art exhibits, visiting history museums, and trying different restaurants. I've tried lots of different types of cuisines since moving here. Another preferred pastime is playing lots of different games: board, cards, video, & even table varieties, though I'm not that good at the last one. I love gadgets, but collect pens. I'm not a sports fan, ...except volleyball with my cat.
