My self-summary
I'm Michiel, age 33, living in Soesterberg, a small village near Utrecht, in the middle of the country.

I have to say never like writing these kind of self-summaries. I always feel like a comic book villain monologuing about his master plan to take over the world (Ok, sure, I admit,I actually *am* planning on taking over the world. But what's that got to do with anything?).

Anyway, a self-summary. Let's see. I'm a nerd. I love science and technology, I studied math and physics, I love books, I like playing (board) games. I'm quite socially outgoing though. I won't go as far as to say I'm extroverted, but I do like meeting new people or going to parties.

What else? I'm stubborn, but very open-minded. I am interested in politics and philosophy, and like debating those. I always follow my own moral compass. I see traffic rules as polite suggestions. I love doing crazy things on occasion.

If you want to know more, feel free to ask. Like I said, I enjoy getting to know new people.

For other Dutchies:
I've written my profile in English because that's the language of the internet. I do of course speak Dutch, and if you send me a PM can you can use either language, or a combination thereof.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working as a technical specialist at a Dutch IT service provider. So basically I'm hired out to other companies to help with the kind of programming jobs that require math or physics skills. I've been doing this for 2 1/2 years now and so far I enjoy it a lot.

Recently I've been thinking about moving abroad for a while.
I’m really good at
Analytical thinking. I'm very good at looking at issues from all angles, mentally breaking down problems into smaller pieces, finding flaws in arguments, things like that.

Also: Listening. People often confide in me. I'm not quite sure why. Maybe I just look really trustworthy? Maybe I'm more shameless in asking personal questions? I don't know. I always try to understand people, and I'm not quick to judge, so that helps.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not quite sure. It used to be my very long hair, but I'm wearing that a lot shorter these days. Perhaps my eyes?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How artificial intelligence is going to change our society. Most people still consider this science fiction. But we already have self-driving cars, automatic translation, Siri... Not to mention 3D printers and instant wireless communication with anybody on the planet. We're already living in the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
... doing the same thing I do every night! Try to take over the world! :-)
