I wasn't always this way though! There was a time when I was part of a gang of bikers notorious in the neighborhood. Then I turned 8 and my parents sent me off to a boarding school (I recently heard in the US it means you were some kind of a problem child? I wasn't - that part came later ;) ). I read for my engineering degree at prestigious university and then went on to read for my Master's degree on a scholarship in one of the top US universities.
Over this journey, I've spent time in classrooms, on the stage organizing events, in jungles hiking, in meeting rooms discussing strategy and some wondeful times hanging out with friends and family. I've been lost in a bear infested jungle and learnt more from that incident that I have from most classes in school. I've survived for a week on 12 Euros and loved doing it.... I guess for the rest of the stories you'll have to get to know me :)
I am adventurous, loving, and a dreamer.
I happened to look at my personality as "deduced" by OKCupid and I think it's pretty inaccurate, probably skewed because of the questions I've chosen to answer so I wouldn't go by that too much.
I love my work! It's not THE EXACT thing I'd be doing if I could do anything in the world, but it's exciting, enjoyable (I love both my work and the people I work with) and I'm growing intellectually and professionally so I feel quite blessed. I'm pretty competitive and love to strive to get better at what I do.
I love going out with friends, going out hiking, rafting, travelling and just hanging out. I grew up in the Himalayan foothills and love the mountains and nature. When it's raining (when is it not ;) ?) I play tennis indoors, swim, watch a movie with friends or hit the gym.
Perceiving. I'm a really good listener and once you know me you'll love the way I can sense things about you ;)
Ideas: I love ideas - being an INTP I love playing with ideas, moving and juxtaposing them around in my head to come up with something new.
Designing: Interfaces - comes with the job.
