I am a strange thing. A poet's heart with a scientist's spirit. An ambitious mind in a skinny body, from which it continuously tries to escape. I dream my life and live my dreams.
To be slightly more precise, I am a researcher in physics, currently at the PhD level, and hopefully soon post-doctoral. I am quite devoted to my research and try my best to achieve something that would be both interesting for myself, improving the perception I have of the world, and useful for others, maybe leading to developments in other fields. I really like these two aspects of science : the solitary day-to-day work which makes me learn a lot as well as discovering new things, and possible applications which can help society.
I am a relatively shy and lonely person. I usually prefer spending the evening alone working or having meaningful discussions with a few friends than partying. And I think life is too short to waste any opportunity to do something meaningful.
Apparently, my personality type is INFP-T. To be slightly more precise, according to two self-assessment tests (whose results should thus be taken with a grain of salt), my FFM personality traits are:
Openness to experience: 85%
I also enjoy listening to music (especially classical music, but I am open to virtually everything), reading or trying to write poetry, and running in Orsay or between the rocks of the Fontainebleau forest.
Music: I enjoy listening to all kinds of music, except maybe rap (although I reckon some rap songs are better than others.) I love classical music, especially Bach, Mozart, Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky, Tchaikovski, Debussy, Fauré, Milhaud and Bondeaux.
lot of time alone
something to think about
If you know some good trail-running competition near Paris and/or nice poetry in French or English.
If you know what "to exist" or "to be" really means and can explain it to me. (This is a question which has been bothering me for some time, but so far I could not find any satisfactory answer.)
