I always find that it's tough to talk about and describe myself without being asked specific questions but it's part of the process: I can be very witty and playful. I'm mentally/intellectually/cerebrally oriented. I tend to love complexity (not to be confused with "drama"). Whether it's music, movies, humorous situations, or even people, I find that the more complex they are, then the more fascinated and interested I am. I guess I'd put it like this: If I hear a song and I get it right away, even if it's from my favorite band (TOOL), then chances are that I'll tire of it fairly quickly. But if it's complex, deep, and layered, and it takes me a while to figure it out, then I know that it will grab ahold of, challenge, and stimulate me, and I'll continue picking up nuances that I wasn't aware of initially. Consequently, it will have staying power and sustainability. The same could be said for a humorous situation or comedy. Was it an easily anticipated joke and/or a mildly funny situation? Or was it something that completely caught you off guard with it's depth, and became more and more humorous the more you thought about and analyzed it? Same with a movie. Could you predict the plot/outcome? Or were you completely outsmarted and surprised by the quality of the writing and the ending (think Sixth Sense/Fight Club/Usual Suspects). I tend to want to be challenged/enlightened/educated rather than just entertained. And the same applies with people. How much depth/substance is there? What type of adversity have they dealt with, and what is the resulting character that has been built (or more accurately, exposed) because of it? How self-aware are they, and how does that translate into how they interact with their surroundings and with other people? I love it when I meet people who possess the following phenomenon: The more I know, the less I know. What I mean by that is that the more I learn about them, the more I realize how little I know about them, because I realize that every bit of information learned is only like becoming aware of a tip of an iceberg where there is still a ton of stuff to learn and figure out about them. I love solving the human puzzle. I like people who possess spontaneity, without being reckless. People who have a playful maturity to them. People who possess a calculated/measured rebelliousness to them.
I'm also pretty skilled in the kitchen. I love to cook, feed other people, and of course, eat.
Want to see some young kids "cover the shit out of Tool's 46&2"? Check this out:
2. The gym/exercise
3. Access to a kitchen/cooking/eating
4. The mountains where I live
5. Internet/my laptop (we're on here, right?)
6. The NFL ............. (geek alert: Fantasy Football)
Took one of the personality tests on this site (INTP), and although it is consistent and accurate with other sources, I find that the site listed below is a much better site for personality analysis:
I played small college football, and still work out six days a week. Two relevant philosophies that I try to live by are:
- If you always do what you did when you were younger, you stay young longer…...
- I know where the Fountain of Youth is; It's in the gym, and it's on my plate.....
