I'm introverted, cautious, intentional, calculated; adventurous, compassionate, spontaneous, and creative. I'm extremely critical of the forces and institutions that shape society, while recognizing my position as benefiting from many of them. I'm inquisitive and have a drive to really understand how everything fits together - and then equally how to fuck it all up.
In contrast to grappling with abstract questions at a societal level, I also greatly enjoy playing with ideas and concepts contained in a closed system. I have a great love of games, primarily of the video and board varieties. I feel a compulsion to understand exactly how the mechanics work and will commit a quite ridiculous amount of time to really studying a game and how everything works together. This is true in a broader sense as well; while my knowledge base isn't terrible wide - it's almost embarrassingly deep in the few things I take interest it.
Oh, and I'm an INTP for folks that like MBTI. (Typology is another topic I find fascinating)
