I wrote the following in what I would guess is the order of importance for people wanting to know me. I've expressed a few moral and political stances, but I don't require people to agree with me on everything I write.
I'm introverted, reserved and often described as 'quiet'. I tend to prefer talking to people I know in small groups than being in large crowds of people I don't know.
I find most things interesting. I'd rather have a conversation about stamps or trains than listen to idle gossip about who is sleeping with whom. I do have a blind spot for sports though, which tends to make my eyes glaze over.
I'm more likely to enjoy a positive conversation about what someone loves, than a conversation about what (or who) someone hates.
I'd rather have a conversation with someone I disagree with but who has a good/interesting argument for why they believe what they do, than have a conversation with someone who shares my beliefs but without having ever thought about why they believe what they believe.
My Myers-Briggs Personality Type is INTJ.
I have a simple morality based on valuing happiness, thus I consider all people are equally valuable in moral terms because we all have equal capacity for happiness, as well as for suffering.
I'm entirely opposed to pointless suffering, by which I mean any suffering that does not serve any purpose. I don't think anyone should be caused or allowed to suffer purely and solely for the purposes of retribution.
Sometimes we (regrettably and hopefully not often) do need to behave in a way that causes someone to suffer, but only if we have very good reasons to do so.

My politics is (in theory) reducible down to the preservation of liberty; the state's purpose is to help us live together in such a way that we can all live in (so far as is possible) according to our own goals, beliefs and values.

I don't believe in any form of deity, nor in anything supernatural, but I don't think people can be assumed to be stupid if they do believe in such things. That being said, my opinion of obvious superstition is not favourable.
In most ways, I'm your pretty standard secular atheist, but I'm not technically a materialist... more on that at my website
