As far as personality goes, my type is ISTJ which means I am not your typical girl, as I have the personality type typical for many CEOs (I graduated from Wharton with a triple concentration). While technically an introvert, I love taking calculated risks (think poker, investing, etc). I am very driven, extremely competitive, detailed-oriented, type-A, and logical (versus 75% of women are emotional). I excel at almost everything I do through hard work, and I am a no-drama girl. Yes, I'm intense but I also know how to kick back, relax and enjoy life. I love being around high energy people, as long as I have some down time to myself every once in awhile. I am also the first born of four siblings, and I have many personality traits typical of first born children. I am very happy and confident with who I am.
What this means for you... most guys think I am awesome. I consider myself low-maintenance, well rounded, with a high self esteem and very easy-going. I love to travel and I have never lived anywhere for more than four years (to include Europe, New Jersey, the dirty south, NYC, and now California!), but try to take the best of each place with me. To answer an often asked question, I have been in SF for 3 years now, but maybe San Francisco will be the first place to break that trend as I do love it here!
I played several team sports through high school (softball primarily), did competitive swing dancing in college, and my latest adventures are running half marathons, trail 10K races, surfing, and I recently took a beginner kite boarding lesson. I have been sky diving twice and loved it. I also love music and used to play the trumpet in a nationally-ranked jazz band, something which I'd love to get back into some day. I love almost all foods (except super spicy... it burns!), enjoy checking out new restaurants, shows, etc because I believe variety is the spice of life. I love wine country, swing dancing, hiking, bowling, shooting pool, poker, and laser tag among many many more things!
With regards to politics, I am basically a libertarian (fiscally conservative and socially liberal) and I believe in small government. Beyond establishing a political frame work, I don't spend much time worrying about politics or things which are outside my control. I consider these views always open to discussion and change, but probably wouldn't work well with someone adamantly on either political extreme.
