In my spare time I like to go out and sit on cafés to either people-watch, read up on or play with techy things, or socialise with friends, colleagues or people from the tech scene in Copenhagen. I like to attend meet-ups and events for or by software developers. I don't find this monotonic because it's fun seeing familiar faces or meeting new people.
I'm pretty introverted, which can make it seem like I'm shy, but what it really means is that I need a little more time than most to build up enough trust to open up to other people.
One of my more pronounced traits is that I'm fairly analytical, in the sense that I try hard to understand what people say in the most positive possible way. I think that people are generally good, but can also be clumsy or say ambiguous or ungraceful things even though they mean well. So I try to mentally compensate. Communication is just hard, sometimes.
