Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
“Man is least himself when he speaks in his own person. Give him a
mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
I like that one, though I'm not sure what Oscar Wilde would think
about the veneer of Facebook profiles and online dating
self-summaries. Take it as you will, then. I love my life. I'm
extremely lucky to have it, but worked my ass off at the same time
to get here. I'm a doctor in an ER. My job is wild, difficult, and
often deals in life-and-death. Performing the job is, itself, a
disease that can only be cured by whiskey. But I am really good at
it, which tends to balance the scales.
If it helps, I'm an ENFP. I like to learn, and to continually
adapt. All of our upsides are also our downfalls, so it doesn't
make much sense to pitch my qualities here, though metaphors and
situations might be better. If I'm a drink, I'm a stiff rye; not
for everyone, but the only thing for some. If we were stranded in
the Alaskan wilderness, being chased by bears or wolves, you would
be at least 50% sure I'd somehow get us both to safety.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Devoting a lot of time to muay thai. Eventually I'd like to have
some fights under my belt. When not training, I also run, play
football, tennis, ski, work out.
I'm thinking about a second career or another degree.
The first time I went to MIT's OpenCourseWare website I had a
knowledge-gasm. I spend a lot of time there.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Improvising. If I could be a professional MacGyver, I'd be at
Writing long letters and personal emails. That probably doesn't
sound like the most masculine self-endorsement, admittedly, but I
think I can write a letter that would make you want to rent a
safety deposit box.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People's expectations based on appearance, and what they end up
thinking after the fact. The European sovereign debt crisis. Time
travel. The best fried chicken in the city. My first great
invention. Ideas for a novel.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to be the best-performing offspring in my family. Now I'm
the lousy, good-for-nothing brother of a Food Network chef.
