| Personality Typing |
I'm smitten with most forms of personality typing. Between a couple of them, you (hypothetically) can get a pretty good concept of a person. According to the Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator, I'm an INFP/ENFP, which I dispute on professional grounds. Astrologically, I'm a Cancer born in the Year of the Tiger. My blood type is O+. My Enneagram is Type 7. I am a Vata according to Dosha types.
| Food and Drink |
I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and most baked goods in general. I'm also very fond of coffee and tea, which I consume in fair quantities. If you make it through all this, you probably deserve a drink, on me.
| Smoking Habits (Or Lack Thereof) |
I used to judge people by their preferred brand of cigarettes. I came across a Canadian study in a sociology journal that provided positive correlation between cigarette brands and personality characteristics. It was fascinating, but was performed in the seventies, with Canadian brands. I would love to replicate the study once I figure out how it works. Apparently this is one of the few things people take away from the entire profile. I like pipe tobacco and shisha, and have fond memories of Parliament Lights.
| Miscellany |
I promised myself a tattoo for my 18th birthday and just recently got my first. It is the Aristotelian symbol for water; my siblings have earth, air, and fire. I walk around malls for hours. I am hoping to attend swing dancing classes again sometime soon. I'm a sucker for smooth jazz playing in cozy coffee shops. I actively seek opportunities to wear a tuxedo, and perform well-disguised James Bond impressions while doing so. I own a number of polyhedral dice. I wear other people's glasses. I collect digital typefaces. I am a Southpaw. I have an inflated opinion of most red-heads. I am fascinated with imperfections. I find altered states very curious. If the lyrics to a song are grammatically incorrect, I will sing them correctly.
Politically, I am a centrist; not out of nihilism or lack of education, but as a deliberate attempt to maintain balance and moderation. I am also a conservative transhumanist.
I am pensive, interested, and (I like to think) friendly...
