I like: art deco, music that has an identifiable tune which also involves very little screaming, people who can actually debate like adults despite having their own view politely challenged, ideas you did not get from some expert somewhere, rational thought, empathy, a belief that you can create positive change in the world and a willingness to try, cats, singing, dancing, acting, (and seeing others do those things well), impressionist paintings, women who love to bicycle.
My life has not been a normal one. I have done classical singing (two national professional choir tours, sang with choirs multiple times at Carnegie Hall...), appeared on Sex and the City, worked as a bike messenger in NYC (wrote for the zine, raced in the alleycats), I play bicycle polo, I was in a crazy artists collective in NYC, I helped create and design a park here in Tucson, I owned a store on 4th Ave for a few years (Peace Works, I got 38 bike racks installed for the avenue while I had the store, yes I have a hippy side but I shower daily), I got a US patent (and lost money), I am an autodidact and presented this paper at an academic symposium and a conference (http://theroadtopeace.blogspot.ca/) and last month presented another paper at the APLS conference...but I have no Bachelors and have never taken any classes related to either paper. I just enjoy trying to solve interesting questions, and for me interesting means solving them can help make the world a better place to live. I am part of the evolutionary psychology community, bonus points if you appreciate the field.
