My self-summary
In short...

"Gentleman by day, Philosopher by night, Pervert by choice, Rebel by fate"

Otherwise...

Hard-of-hearing INFJ dad of two with an entrepreneurial streak. Designer, Marketer, Artist, Philomath, Hopeless Romantic, Petrolhead, Fitness Fanatic and Foodie. Lover of Metaphysics, MBTI, Tattoos, Steampunk, Bohemian Fashion and all things Apple 

Words to describe me: Introspective, Introverted, Intuitive, Shy, Quiet, Passionate, Horny, Strong, Thoughtful, Energetic, Playful, Insatiable, Witty, Ethereal, Spiritual, Deep, Complex, Sensitive, Tactile, Emotional, Creative, Artistic, Reliable, Clumsy, Contemplative, Naive, Loyal, Empathetic, Sensitive, Romantic, Salacious, Rebellious, Determined, Focused (unless in a procrastinating phase), Enigmatic...

If you are into MBTI and personality theory I'm also an Enneagram 4w5, Tritype 459 and have an instinctual variant of sx/so/sp. I know, I know... Sounds gibberish but it can be really interesting. It's enabled me to understand myself and others much better.
What I’m doing with my life
Working full time as a graphic designer. Looking after kids and into fitness in my spare time. Trying to simplify my life, and eventually would like to be able to be self sufficient and live off the grid... Cottage living in the remote highlands or valleys of Scotland sounds like a good long term plan. But with the ability to travel frequently.
I’m really good at
Giving *hugs*, Being there for people, Listening, Supporting, Helping and inspiring others, Working with kids, Creative endeavours, Wordplay, Procrastinating, Business planning, Foreplay, Sports (apart from football). Note: I'm really bad at traipsing round clothes shops, DIY and being hungry (you wouldn't like me when I'm hungry).
The first things people usually notice about me
Quiet and restrained with a warm/kind smile. I'm often away with the fairies (In deep contemplation). Although some people might think me cold and aloof at first glance but that belies my true nature.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books...
Don't read nearly enough as I'd like to but enjoy anything that covers the topics of Metaphysics, the Nature of Reality, Spiritualism, Consciousness, Life/Death and Personality types. Trying to get back into reading fiction as I've not done this for years... Also like reading Khalil Gibran, Rumi, Paulo Coehlo, Nietzsche and quotes from ancient philosophers on life, love, inspiration etc.

Movies...
Movies that explore the nature of reality, time travel and humanity: Pi, Primer, Pan's Labryinth, Jacob's Ladder, A Waking Life, I Heart Hukabees, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Vanilla Sky, Good Will Hunting, Knowing, Donnie Darko, Solaris, Memento, Crash, Triangle, The Fountain, Being John Malkovich, Twelve Monkeys, Children of Men, Butterfly Effect, All the Superman movies, Austin Powers and Beyond The Rabbit Hole. I'm also a sucker for romantic movies such as PS I Love You, Crazy Stupid Love, Change Up, Love Actually, Scent of A Woman, Time Traveller's Wife, The Lake House and Her

Shows...
Don't watch TV that often but when I do it's stuff like Top Gear, QI (Quite Interesting), Horizon (and BBC4 Documentaries), Not Going Out, Only Fools & Horses and The Outer Limits.

Music...
My all-time favourite has to be Lighthouse Family. Also enjoy Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Burt Bacharach, Barry White, Jack Johnson and Keane. Most music from the 60s and Motown get the thumbs up too.

Food...
Probably Indian/Thai although I like most cuisines. Love experimenting at home with food (use it as an opportunity to test my creative and photography skills). I'm also a recovering chocoholic and have an insatiable weakness for Ben & Jerry's Ice-Cream... Particularly Karamel Sutra.
The six things I could never do without
My Kids, Hope, INFJ friends, Apple , Chocolate and Ice-Cream.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My kids, Why do I become romantically attached far too easily? Love, Sex, Hugs, Cuddles, Spooning, Snugglefucks, Food, Parmos, Lamb Biryanis and Keema Naans, Curry pizzas, Time, The future, Simplifying life, Training, Metaphysics, Philosophy, Is reality all in the mind? Is solipsism viable? Do Boltzmann brains exist? Death, DMT, Where DO kids get all their energy from? Why are women from Venus and men from Mars? Why do women take EONS to text back? Relationships, Finding people who 'get' me, Flirting, Double Entendres, Innuendo, Synchronicities, Feelings, Heartache, Righting injustices, Business ideas, Consciousness, *sigh*, Why can't people just be honest and participate in open communication? Why are sensors so obsessed with alcohol, money and holidays? Peppa Pig, The Egg by Andy Weir, The Inner Sanctum, Master Daddy's Den of Iniquity, The Solace of (Ni)sanity, Why do certain hairs on my ear and eyebrow grow faster than the rest? And why are they the white hairs?! Why can I only think of the best comeback lines EVER half an hour after the event? What tattoo I should get? God, Quantum Physics, Boobs, brbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbr, Nnnrrrggghhhh, emigrating to New Zealand, World cruises, Why can I only seem to do ALL or NOTHING, and NOTHING in between? Threesomes? Foursomes? Algebraic sums? Doggy style. Where DID that Erotic Dots book get to? Spongebob Squarepants, *waves hands rainbow style* I-M-A-G-I-N-A-T-I-O-N, FREEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOM, s-s-s--sstuttutterr-r-ring, Why are all the cute, funny, sexy, single INFJ gals an ocean away? Or close by but feel an ocean away? The ebb and flow of hope and despair? Hitting refresh, Why do I always lose odd socks? How can I get rid of brain chatter? How much are sensory deprivation tanks? Am I really sx/so, or just all sx/sx/sx? Why do I have to be an Intuitive Island in a Sea of Sensors? Which is worst... being alone, or being lonely?
On a typical Friday night I am
Home alone. Usually training, working, reading, cooking, browsing the Internet, on Facebook (in a few MBTI groups usually), thinking up a new business project or watching a movie. Or simply just procrastinating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
*I'm weird when you really get to know me. I may be quiet and reserved on the surface but that's only because I spend 95% of my time listening to the maelstrom within my mind and trying to interpret, decode and filter all the bangs, wolf whistles, woowooowoowoos, wwwwaaawawawas and binkbinkbinkbinkbinks that seem to be going on. If I didn't filter what was there and it came out completely unedited then chances I'd be put into a straightjacket and whisked away to the nuthouse in less than five minutes. *brbrbrbrbrbrbrbr..... weeeeeeeeee, schlurrrp* *boing* *shuts up*

*I had my first kiss and date at the age of 28 (yes, I was a 28 year old virgin) which resulted in my one relationship of eight years.
