I am an academic studying rhetoric, the "art of character" (or, at least, persuasion). I am most interested in theories about how drama and evidence work. I am cynical and sarcastic, I'm not subtle, and I have a sharp wit, but it might be turning cheesier as I age.
I love new experiences and new ideas, but my blunt orientation can make it difficult for new people to get to know me. I most admire passion in others because passionate people seem to have the most to share. I love travel, and I love the outdoors (but don't get to venture out there that often).
VERY IMPORTANT: by arguing, I mean that I love the free exchange of ideas, especially as warranted claims, especially when they clash with each other, especially as a devil's advocate. I think the match questions sometimes make me appear rude when I say I like to argue. When people do not want to argue with me, I listen and stop.
I am philosophical, argumentative, and snarky.
