If you can get past the fact that I'm libertarian, the next thing you should know is that I am in an open/polyamorous/non-monogamous relationship with carnymancer who I consider to be my life partner.
If you're cool with those two things, we can move on to the more esoteric crap.
For a quick and dirty idea of who and how I am, my MBTI is INTJ, but those who know me say I'm a very extraverted introvert. I tend to be loud, abrasive, and excitable, feeling no qualms about showing both excitement and disdain or disapproval.
The primary value I have for myself and others is honesty. I will always tell you the truth, even if it's something you don't want to hear. I figure that way, when I say something nice, you never have to wonder if I'm telling the truth or not. It's crucial for me to be able to trust that people are honest with me, also. I have no tolerance for guessing-games or passive-aggressive tendencies.
I am not a nice person. Nice people tell you what you want to hear and make sure you always feel good. I am, however, kind and caring. Caring people want you to be happy, and that sometimes means giving you hard choices and telling you when you've done something wrong.
The last thing for me, I suppose, is that I love to learn. Right now I am picking up skills (sewing, graphic design, web design, photography), but I also enjoy learning about ideas (I particularly enjoy philosophy, law, technology, and history). I primarily like to learn things through talking and discussing ideas with other people. Some people call this debate or arguing. I call it robust information exchange. ^_^
I will also take this chance to make a random list of things I'm interested in:
fantasy—I used to write it and it is still the most common fiction genre I read.
I am a nerdy woman who spends way more time on reddit than she probably should.
Avatar, the last airbender and legend of korra are some of my favorite shows
When I have time, I enjoy playing video games, particularly RPGs
I have been slowly learning to make medieval costume. I enjoy cosplay when I can.
Book: All you need to know is that I have two 6' bookshelves, each filled completely with books. Asking me to choose favorites is like asking me to choose a favorite child.
Movie: How to Train Your Dragon. Yeah; I said it.
Show: My favorite series of all time is Elfen Lied. Points if you know what that is.
Music: Incubus is my favorite band, but I have eclectic music tastes ranging from folk to dubstep.
Food: I will eat steak any time, anywhere.
1. The internet
5. A hair tie
6. Vibram Five Fingers
Aside from that, I tend to think a lot about the world and my place in it, libertarianism, Sartre, what I am writing that week, and how to do my job more effectively.
If you don't think you get to be a dick to me because I checked "casual sex." Hint: you don't.
