Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Doh. How should I start this? I suppose the shortest possible
summary only needs 4 letters. INTP. But that's rather broad, and
doesn't really account for all the variation falling under that
category. It may also be pretty cryptic to most people.
Perhaps, then, I should try to describe some of the roles I can
recognize in myself.
I'm a goof. I don't take life or myself too seriously. I make fun
of serious topics. Sometimes I engage in absurd or
pseudo-philosophical discussions, debates and conversations.
I'm a vegan, because I love animals, and do not think that it is my
place to impose my will on any living creature, especially in a way
that restricts their freedom in any way. This includes humans as
well, but that's where it gets murky. At times, my respect for
personal freedom means that I have to allow others to violate the
freedom of others. It is not quite as simple as that, and I'd love
to discuss it, but this is not the place to get into all the
hypothetical moral ambiguities :)
I am a geek. I love all kinds of games. Computer games, roleplaying
games, tactical board games. And to a lesser degree, card games and
I'm into zen. I do not subscribe to any single school of thought,
including faith, science, education or humanism. Existence is much
more complicated than that. There is a lot of overlapping, and as
such, all categories are desperate attempts at simplifying the
universe. I do not see the need though, and will thus try to avoid
categorizing anything. At the very least, I try to emphasize that
trying to describe the universe with words is like trying to take
from a cloud with a spoon.
I am a lover, and not specifically in a romantic sense. Perhaps
even less so. I believe that in harming others we also harm
ourselves. Therefore, I try to respect everything and everyone,
even if it is hard. I try to negotiate differences. In general, I
try to leave the world in a better state than it was when I was
born. At least in my own modest surroundings.
I'm also not quite as beardy as these photos from 2010 would
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm discovering myself and the universe, just like I have been for
the last 15 years or so. Before that, I was just a basic boring
blockhead without a single original thought (unless being an
overall geeky outcast counts). We don't reminisce on that period of
my life with warmth.
If you want specifics, I've recently started my Creative Writing
studies in the open university, and I'll be starting my
year this fall.
Other than that, I'm just geeking around, mostly playing computer
games but also looking for excuses to hang out with my wonderful
friends, or doing something animal rights related. The latter
usually in combination with the former.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
getting misunderstood and failing at sarcasm. Truly, they're real
talents. I am also good at reading people, listening, and giving
advice. Being a true INTP, I can see through deception and facades
fairly easily and don't particularly like people who engage in

I look younger than I am. Or so I'm told. I appear shy and
reserved, and usually I am with new people. But the second things
people notice are my gentle spirit and keen insight.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm not much of a reader, sadly. I can't concentrate for on text
for long periods of time. I'm the type that learns by listening,
Movies... A really complicated thing, really. At first, I found
myself explaining the reasons for each individual movie I like, but
that's not what this is about, is it. I like a lot of different
things depending on my mood. Usually the movie just has to be
honest to itself, whatever that means. If you want to compare
notes, hit me with a message ;)
Shows. Okay, this is easier. Galactica, Babylon 5, Deadwood, Rome,
Six Feet Under, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, 70s Show, 3rd Rock
from the Sun, Monty Python, tralala. And so forth.
Music. My taste in music leans towards black metal, but I also
enjoy good ambient, psy/goa trance, movie soundtracks... Anything
that takes time to digest. I generally have to find my own meaning
for a piece of music. That means that I have to listen to it enough
(without getting bored!) to find it, and usually find that lyrics
only serve to annoy me.
Food. Being vegan doesn't really restrict the types of foods I can
eat. If anything, it has broadened my horizons far beyond the
traditional Finnish potato/rice/pasta+meat kind of cooking. I'm
still learning, and loving it. Baking can be fun too, and best when

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
5. Zen (listing it is kind of strange, since I don't know what it
is, and suspect that it isn't anything at all, really, other than a
way of existing and it happens naturally)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have to pick just one thing? Or a dozen? Perhaps, to put it
broadly, I spend a lot of time thinking about the inner workings of
the universe, or the human equation in particular.

If you like long talks about nothing in particular, or anything at
all. I do not warm up to formalities, but would much rather get
straight down to business. So, suggest a topic, or even better,
make an assertion. Starting out with something goofy is a good way
to catch my attention. Being all-around awesome is the best way of
keeping it ;)
