I'm the guy my friends ask favors of because I almost never say no.
I'm kind of stuck in the western 'burbs, at the moment, but I do make it into the city very frequently, and I'll be moving back in a few months.
As an INTP, I guess I'm more of a thinker more than a doer. My job affords me the opportunity to be a little experimental and involves a lot of thought as well as occasional flare-ups of total insanity, so it suits me well. I can toil away in the lab and be the hero when something breaks.
I can be a bit of an idealist. Thinking things are more like I wish they were than they actually are. Thinking people are more often than not generally driven by the want to do something good.
My philosophy as of late: Listen. Engage. Coexist.
Listen to what someone has to say. Engage them in conversation. Find common-ground. We're all way more alike than we are different. Then use that new-found understanding and respect to coexist.
