My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What pretty colors are these!
Such lovely shades of blue.
Tell us how you pick such hue?

Hey now, Mr. Artist!
Don't need the gritty details
Or your circumstances, please.
Blood red is quite too moody!
But this green looks like foxtails
And this teal, like gentle seas.

Don't cry, Mr. Artist,
You'll make the colors run
And these crisp lines are oh so nice
With such a pretty twist!

Mr. Artist, on my pillow,
Tell me secrets of your thoughts!
No, not that one,
It hurts too much to know.
Tell me something nice and clean,
As feelings aren't much fun.

Please, Mr. Artist, please don't shout!
We're trying to decide
What your piece is all about.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As a Ph. D. student studying artificial intelligence, I design and program intelligent agents. These are computer programs that operate in some environment, have goals, and make decisions. I have to juggle knowledge in linguistics, computer science, math, and philosophy (this part is sometimes the most intriguing - perhaps I just enjoy the general volubility of philosophers over computer scientists).

I am on a quest for something, although I'm not sure exactly what it is or where I'll find it. It's a little bit of that racing, terrifying, hummingbird heartbeat upon peering over a cliff with no railings; a little of walking in an abandoned parking lot where the orange streetlamps shine twice in rippling, rainbow-slick puddles and the pitch black gently envelops you, perceptive enough not to ruin that moment by asking why you're there; a little bit of a lonely night in a bar where the din of glasses and silverware make it seem more crowded than it is, and the floorboards hold longer conversations than the introspective patrons; and finally (to escape that hackneyed tendency to attribute nostalgia to the night), a little bit of eating lunch next to a quiet lake, watching fish and life swim by.

I've gathered a few pieces, but I'm not there yet. Maybe you can help! And maybe I can help you find what you're looking for along the way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Weaving words, crocheting colors, and maneuvering around endless black holes as I engage in deeply dangerous (or dangerously deep?) introspection.

Surviving alone in the Amazon rainforest.

Making a mean cup of Turkish coffee.

Cleaning my stove after forgetting about said Turkish coffee.

Playing the piano. Although I'm only just good enough to put it here.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People describe me as professorial, regal, quaint, down to earth, and "a lovable prick".

Some people say I'm adorable, others that I am intimidating. I haven't quite figured that out but I have been erring on the side of modesty to try to avoid the latter.

People say I sound smart.

I once had a boss that said he appreciated my sense of humor, but I don't remember saying anything funny while I worked there.

First impressions are kind of dull - if you get to know me, I'm subtly sentimental and circumspectly conceited, nostalgic for things I’ve never experienced, and prone to long periods of nondeterministic thought processes with a window as my stage and the setting sun as my limelight.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to write about new people I meet. Example:

This girl seemed to lack some of the adventure I saw in the picture of her - in the highlights of her eyes and the textured bandanna that let only a few strands roam free about her countenance. Too many years had weighed on her now - too many years of departed friends, and of holding on to whatever she has just long enough to make her escape into the uncertain fate of a music-maker.

She spoke with a hesitation to feel, except when describing the old copper banisters in the library where she pieced together her ticket out of here, and with a dull gentleness that seemed to come from a desire not to offend with her rather unoffending thoughts. As her face scrunched up while recounting her younger life I wasn't sure if she was about to laugh or cry.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interesting.

You want to talk about dreams, doubts, fears, or thoughts.

Or colors. I can tell you way more about colors than you ever thought there was to know. Like how brown is only perceived according to its context.
