My self-summary
Hello there, I'm Paul. For those of you who will know what I'm talking about, I'm an INFJ.

I'm the kind of guy that is too nice for his own good. I find myself constantly looking out for others. I'm an intelligent person who likes thinking deeply about a variety of subjects. I like to have fun in moderation too.

I have a thirst for knowledge and can usually be found soaking information up like a sponge to be regurgitated later, usually at pub quizes. Passions in this regard are music, movies, the natural world and 'weird stuff'.

I really enjoy getting to know people and what makes them tick. I have a somewhat healthy interest in psychology. It's probably something I should pursue as a career as I have been told that I'm that good at it.

Passion and intensity are hallmarks of me.

Some quickfire and random stuff about me:
I speak in proper English in texts.
I try to maintain a positive mental attitude
I don't swear unless i'm really angry
I'm fairly useless at sports
I listen to Radio 2
I'm fascinated by Cats, Ancient Egypt, Space and Astronomy
I own a telescope
What I’m doing with my life
Last year was a year of great change for me. I bought a house, got some tenants and now I have two cats keeping me entertained. My life has become considerably easier.

On the other hand, ingress has taken over my life. I can often be found wandering around city centres at night, planning trips to other towns to hunt uniques a going to heavy resistance areas to cause chaos. In the space of six months, the city has turned from blue to green. I had a lot to do with that ;)
I’m really good at
Listening to people and understanding where they are coming from
Leaving cups of coffee to get cold because i'm so engrossed in something
Staying active far longer than everyone else
Being too honest for my own good sometimes
Writing about stuff that interests me
Looking up at the stars in wonder and amazement
Walking everywhere (hint: Ingress)
Pub quizes - I'm a mind of useless information
The first things people usually notice about me
When I'm happy it would probably be my verve. As you get closer then it would be my eyes. If you engaged in conversation with me it would be that I can be an intensely passionate person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies would be Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, High Fidelity, The Usual Suspects and alike, films that make me think. I do like popcorn action flicks too but I'm not too keen on horror movies.

TV shows would be the funnies; Have I got News for You, Mock the Week, 8 out of 10 Cats, QI. I'm a big fan of Friends and Big Bang Theory. I also enjoy David Attenborough's documentaries.

Music wise I have a wide taste range, I can usually find something I like in every music genre. It's mostly rock and soul based. Not too keen on the whole hip hop genre.

Current top five favourite songs:
Moody Blues - Nights in White Satin
Marvin Gaye - Let's Get it On
Verve - Lucky Man
Muse - Bliss
Stevie Wonder - Superstition

If you really, really, really want to check out my music taste, then you can look @ http://www.last.fm/user/Draconius

I do like Italian food, but I hate mushrooms so it's a love/hate relationship!!
Six things I could never do without
My friends and family
My interests and passions
Good company
A morning cup of coffee
Music filling my life
My phone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The people that are close to me, I can be a bit of a worrier.
The world, nature and how we as humans don't live in balance with it.
Space, the vastness and the amazing things we have discovered.
What we as a society could accomplish if we actually put our differences aside and worked together.
The past, the future and my path in life.
Finding information and researching subjects to write about.
Small, obscure facts which would make QI proud.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about somewhere with a decent jukebox encouraging random people to play jukebox games.
Wanna play? Send me message then with five songs that fit into the theme of cats ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm actually quite shy
You should message me if
If you like a guy who's intelligent, passionate, thoughtful and sweet. If you just fancy me is always a bonus too. I'm interested in people so if you think we'll get along then drop me a mail! Also, if I've looked at your profile and favourited you then there's a good chance that I like you and I'm just shy or waiting to see if you put more answers to questions. Don't let that put you off though!

You should also message me if you want me to be your phone a friend during a quiz. I'm good at that :P
The two of us
