-open-minded (or at least I try)
-talented ;) (but much more in the world of things than the world of people)
-indecisive. it gets bad sometimes. No, I don't have a particular restaurant in mind.
-different/ too unique. I kind of feel like if the world is full of red, yellow, and blue people, I'm orange. It's not that my qualities don't exist elsewhere, it's just that my combination of them doesn't seem to be very common.
-determined, not all the time.
-I'm pretty even-keeled. I'm not often super passionate or obsessive, nor am I super chill.
-Things I've been at various points in my life: a perfectionist; that quiet girl; someone who appreciates hard work. Don't get me wrong, applying yourself is pretty good. But (and this is close to universal) I'm pretty happy not staying up til 2 am all the time doing homework.
I like big picture discussions and talking about things abstractly, but I also can really appreciate details. I like being serious but also being silly. I'm not nerdy, but I think I'm similar to people who are. I increasingly like conceptualizing the world as a lot of people who are all in it together rather than a lot of isolated individuals (from that you can guess that I'm not a republican). I take an aerial class (see photos) and I Irish dance once a week. Occasionally I do random craft projects.
Categorical personality descriptions:
-Myers Briggs: INTJ (introvert, theoretical, thinking more than feeling, tendency to categorize and orient) http://typelogic.com/intj.html I am not super into this. I think the basic descriptions are pretty helpful, but the complex interpretations that go with it get out of hand.
-Elements: earth, but sometimes fire pokes through (see: red hair)
-True Colors: green and gold (liking science and order, and simultaneously breaking and following the rules) (this is from middle school, but whatever. it's still true)
books: historical/cultural fiction, of an intermediate literary level - I want it to be engaging and easy to read, but also thought provoking. Examples are The Last Samurai [it's not about samurai], The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao, The God of Small Things, Shantaram, The Cheese Monkeys and the sequel, the authors Margaret Atwood and Haruki Murakami.
movies: indie but not artsy - different, but not for the sake of being different, nor overly emotional (just like me!). The Fall is my favorite (movie, incidentally it's also my favorite season).
shows: comedy/sitcom, sometimes food network
music: alternative - containing a lot of energy, musical talent/creativity, beauty, ability to create a mood I like, catchiness (pick several). Top bands include the Shins, the Strokes, and Phoenix.
food: ethnic, with a lot of vegetables!
truth and understanding
a shoulder to cry on
Also sorry if I don't message you back. Relationship-worthy pairs of people are pretty rare, I think.
