I'm pretty idealistic, and value empathy. Because of what I'm studying, I also have to be analytical and objective sometimes. In the past, I've wondered if the two are at odds with each other, and if I'll have to sacrifice one over the other. These days, I'm becoming more confident that I'll be able to join them in a meaningful career.
I guess at the end of the day, I'm looking for someone who also cares about the world and the people in it, who likes to talk about issues both large and small, and who likes to take time to get to know people for all their complexities.
我学习中文一年了。I'm proud to say I'm officially an advanced beginner!
More seriously, asking questions.

Edit: My own picture betrays me.
Coen Brothers. Films with subtitles. Comedies with likable characters. Documentaries that show you something new. Movies with interesting plots.
Rachmaninoff. Honestly, I listen to a wide range of music, and I'm not just saying that because I'm too lazy to think of something. I grew up in a musical environment, and it's a pretty important part of my life. If I'm in the car, I'll usually try to find the most obscure channel just to expose myself to something new.
Peanut butter. I know a lot of people feel strongly about food, and identify as foodies. I also enjoy trying new foods and experiencing different cultures. The whole foody culture can feel kind of elitist and superficial, though.
