My self-summary
I am an archetypal INTP. Together, the following five profiles comprehensively describe me:

I'm also a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).

Voluntaryist. Nemophilist. Pluviophile. Philogynist. Aesthete. Nature-lover. Night owl. Daydreamer. Cynic. Observer. Transhumanist. Psychological egoist. Moral skeptic.

OKC's Staff Robot regards me as super competitive, which I regard as super surprising. It also says I'm less giving and less compassionate than most. Well I've met Most People, and Most People are fucking liars. Otherwise, the Personality page is pretty spot on.

Attributes I value most in myself and any friend/partner: kindness, honesty and trustworthiness.
What I’m doing with my life
After going on a difficult journey of self-discovery, I've returned to university to study computer science. Hoping to find a career/vocation in which I wake up looking forward to the workday ahead...a feeling that I've yet to experience.
I’m really good at
- Asking questions
- Appreciating unique/weird ideas
- Alliteration
- Assonance
- Seeing the beauty & complexity in almost anything
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm 'different' from most people...more thoughtful, more intense, often more awkward.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
> Self-acceptance, self-awareness, self-compassion, self-belief & self-esteem

> Whether people who are poorer / dumber / uglier / crazier / lazier / more abused than I (i.e. the vast majority of humanity) find their existence more difficult than I find mine. If so, why do they have children and perpetuate the suffering?

> How much someone's face (especially if you see it moving for a few minutes) can tell you about their personality.

> How 'normal' people do or believe unreasonable things

> Efficiency
On a typical Friday night I am
Lying on bed or couch, recovering from the work week
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I spent half an hour contemplating the logical inconsistency of this question. What is the technical term for a question whereby stating a truthful answer immediately renders that answer untrue? I think it has something to do with fuzzy logic.
You should message me if
