The paraphrase represents my identity as an artist, a designer, and an engineer, whichs translates into an imaginative, intransigent, and introspective individual. For what it's worth, that aligns perfectly with 'INTP'. It is interesting how close I fit that description. Unabashedly, who I am is greatly defined by what I do: I am a designer. My personality and passion are inextricably connected to my profession. There is no on-off switch.
As an extrovertible introvert, I prefer to observe, then act accordingly, or not at all. I don't judge: I don't care enough. I am more than willing to help others in need, but nothing of humanity will leave me shocked or saddened.
I am very passionate towards a few things. You will find out as you read further.
Ok. I'll tell you one: MUSIC. I'll periodically post songs that I like:
The New Division - Shadows + Gemini albums
I have faults....
I was born and raised in south jersey where "only the strong survive, then eventually leave", ha.
I seek moments that evoke a combination of anxiety, fear, and euphoria. That doesn't mean bdsm; it means I continually accept instances where I'm pushed outside of my comfort zone. I hope to find a equal who can do that for me.
I co-teach two courses in structures for architecture grads and undergrads at CAL.
I do contract work. At the moment, I work with an architect in Oakland on two projects: one is in San Pablo; the other is in Mt Shasta.
If you didn't deduce from the info above my background is in compsci, architecture, and structural engineering from Lehigh university and Cal.
I am looking for highly cerebral books on the human psyche and interaction coupled with a philosophical undertone. Now, this hybrid genre may not exist, ha, but I'm in pursuit. I need to venture out and diversify from my inundation of design and engineering literature. If you know of any, please share.

The obvious: water, sunlight, and food
All the aforementioned can be, and most often is, coalesced into one paradoxical mindset regarding my existence in the design industry: to differentiate, optimize, and develop a niche, yet continually adapt, evolve, and maintain general awareness to avoid being lost in specialization.
The inventions, designs, and technological breakthroughs presented in TEDTalks, and how I can reach that level in my profession.
A small portion of my mind focuses on the inevitable...
I rarely use the website version of Okc, so I was amazed that my extra info - personality bar chart - damn-near depicts me as the anti-christ to women in dating. Damn Okc's unfounded judgement of me. Ladies, it is not true.
you have athletic, fit, or jacked to describe your physique. It is obvious that personality, intelligence, and commonalities are the more salient qualities to any meaningful relationship, but that combination should evince a desire for perfection in all areas that are of interest to you. What is of more interest then your own body?
