My self-summary
Myers-Briggs: INTJ - the Mastermind
Enneagram: 6w5 - the Loyalist (Defender subtype)

I'm an ambivert. I'll go to a party, but then end up spending the whole time with a tray full of pretzels and cheese waiting for someone to ask me to be the DD.
What I’m doing with my life
I write automated test software for a living. I could probably also use my skills to convince old people that the devil has taken over their computer, but that wouldn't be ethical.

Right now, I'm working on a trashy novel that's still somehow serious. Over 800 tasteless high schoolers call my debut work "a legend," but they're much less impressed when I'm not using pop culture jokes every third sentence.
I’m really good at
Discussing the ethics of inscrutable star gods. Describing things with totally opaque conceits. Writing trashy fanfiction.

I'm really bad at
Karaoke. Yo-yo-ing. Parking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I HAVE NO INSIDE VOICE

Six things I could never do without
Google - I, for one, look forward to our search engine overlords.
Space - There needs to be another retro sci-fi game, like the original Mass Effect but not awful.
Computers - At this point, I've replaced basically my entire toolset with my computer. I just need power tools with USB cords now.
Jams - I'm not sure where my writing would be without Rob Zombie.
Fiction - Obviously.
Internet - Setting aside the obvious, it's the easiest way to reach the people who really want to read your work.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is Velka behind everything in Dark Souls? Because it's just getting silly at this point.

Will I ever get around to finishing that video game backlog?

When will Kroger start stocking Vanilla Caramel Swirl again?
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually doing research on some obscure historical subject. Or, like, JoJo. Because for some reason, I'll need to know everything about the subject before I can finish the latest chapter of my novel. Did you know that it's believed King Arthur ruled the Welsh kingdom of Gwynedd?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's basically only one thing I won't admit, so instead, here's an example:
There's a terrible Latin Club joke that goes "Latin students never decline VI." It's pronounced "never decline sex," but it's talking about how Latin has no sixth declension. I do decline sex. While we're still talking about Italy, call me extra virgin olive oil.
You should message me if
You need advice. Somehow, I've become designated shrink for my online group. Actually, that's terrible advice. My advice is not to take my advice.

You feel a desperate urge to talk about Oswald of Northumbria.

You think you can sing in the car worse than me.
