Confident, intellectual, outgoing and forward. I have a thing for minority politics (usually of the ethnic sort) and languages. I love history and politics generally though-- the more contentious the better.
I would say I am very very curious. I have a constant desire to learn new things and illuminate those aspects of life/history/whatever that I don't entirely understand. If something comes up that I don't know the answer to, I have to immediately figure it out-- thank Gd for smartphones!
Diffusing tense situations with humour, and generally making people laugh.

Food: Good lord... basically all food. I'm despise mushrooms and mustard, and am not a huge olive fan, but other than that I'm flexible. I love Indian food, vindaoloos are a favourite-- the spicier the better. Also kebab, I cannot resist good kebab and it is a serious addiction.
My phone (yes, I am sadly one of those people)
