Let me start off with why I am here on OKC. I like meeting new people. I like to compare my psychological profile to my friends. I joke that this is my MMODS (Massively Multiplayer Online Dating Sim).
I'm going to clarify something too. I'm listed as looking for short term dating and casual sex partners. I'm not really into casual sex per se. I've found that I don't really enjoy sex with people that I don't like and care about. On the other hand, I don't have time or the inclination to have a serious girlfriend. I'd like a friend with benefits. Someone I can call up and say "let's have some kinky sex," "let's lounge around naked and read books all day," or "tonight, I think I'd rather just go dancing, love."
The concept of Jungian archetypes or personas intrigues me. If I had to embody mythological entities I'd say that I'm a trickster and a smith, like Loki and Hephaestus. At times these can be separate, or conjoined. Raven was the trickster that created the world. I also trick myself oft; when I think I am merely playing with someone I find that I might have been using the opportunity to teach. Creating mental qualities and enlightenment are as important to me as creating physical constructs.
Myers-Brigg isn't a particularly accurate model (in fact, what does it model?) of personality but it works well for fun. Its the scientist's nonpseudoscientific version of astrology. I'm an INTP, sometimes the I switches to E and the P to J depending on my mood.
I have ADHD.
I'm a botanist and an animal person. I like dogs, but prefer cats and own one. I keep bettas.
I originally went to college for Physics but switched to Biology (before I was diagnosed with ADHD I hit a wall trying to complete advanced mathematics courses). I still dabble in other scientific fields. I think of myself as a craftsman more than an artist but I love art greatly and dabble in it as well. In a sense they are the same thing.
I'm most at home in a secluded spot in the outdoors, but due to the lack of climate control and internet access... (Ever been to: sunken greek cities on the Mediterranean, the Nantahala river valley in the blue mountains, cloud forests in the Panamanian highlands?).
I'm hesitant to call myself a liberal - I'm more of an anticonservative. The truth is more that the normal values of society don't mean a thing to me. I'd call myself a secular transhumanist. I want to reach my potential and I want people to reach theirs. I don't think I'm truly living unless I'm exploring the limits of the human experience (minus things I find unethical).
Extra paragraph! The twisted grammar monkey in me has snapped and I refuse to use y'all or yous as the 2nd person plural pronoun. Why? Well, ye and you are the 2nd person plural pronouns. I'll be using thee and thou as the 2nd person singular pronouns. So if I message thee or thou dost message me first... that's why I'll be using thee and thou.
I am Hephaestus, Raven, and Sophia
