My Briggs-Meyer type is listed as INFP and/or INTP on every personality test I've ever taken.
I always root for the antihero.
I like making elliptical allusions to things that few people know about, often resulting in awkward silences. I'm still laughing inside.
I probably sing more often than I speak; I make no claims about the quality.
I am not sure if I know much about epistemology.
Chaos is a friend of mine.
I know too much for my own good.
I get entirely too much joy laughing at stupid and silly things.
I have left the doors of perception wide open.
I'd like to get to know you better.
Clearly I am a wild and crazy guy.
When I'm not doing any of that, I'm playing music or writing, or just generally trying to maintain a Zen-like laid-back attitude. Trying.
I'm pretty good at math. It is one of the few things in this world that I feel like I understand.
Published poets and novelists with well established careers have told me my writing is exceptional. I am not entirely sure I agree, but who am I to argue?
I am also pretty excellent at riffing over bad movies. I can throw a bad movie party like nobody else.
I am something of an amateur contortionist. I often find myself sitting in weird, uncomfortable looking positions without realizing it until someone points it out to me. I've built up a pretty good repertoire of tricks too.

Anything spicy. I also really like Italian and Chinese dishes. Though honestly, I love trying new things. I like variety.
TV: I don't watch it.
What the hell is wrong with politics these days. Seriously, it's the most fun I have getting angry.
Why the Universe seems to be fucking with us.
The great blackness above us, the quivering emptiness between us, and the interactions which hold us together.
Or, I'll be nursing a glass of red wine or Irish whiskey while listening to free-jazz.
