I'm a fairly gentle and kind guy, but also very direct and blunt.
Anything that gets my brain fired up. Mathematics, programming, golf, gaming, weightlifting, rubiks cubing, physiotherapy/yoga/anatomy. Not necessarily an expert at all of this, but this is what I'm working on and enjoy working on. Also a big fan of cooking and even fairly competent! :)
The obvious suspects; LOTR, A song of ice and fire (Game of thrones), Harry Potter etc.
The art of learning - Josh Waitzkin , amazing biography from a man who became a champion both at Chess and Tai Chi. I'd recommend this one to just about anyone
Anything by Jo Nesbø, fantastic writing and plots all around.
List is too long to mention, will enjoy just about anything that has evidently been the subject of a lot of thought and efffort, not necessarily big budget.
Also too long of a list to exhaust. Started out enjoying primarily metal, proceeded to electronic, classical, hiphop/rap, rock in no particular order. If it is good, I will enjoy it at some point, most likely.
Big foodie; tacos, chili con carne, curry, italian, stir fry, soups, steaks. I can make most things really quite well, although i do tend to cook the practical ones more frequently.
