(this is his dominant personality type)
(he also shows elements of this type)
The unexamined life is not worth living.
He is a tough-minded, independent thinker who likes to explore ideas or problems thoroughly. Yet he has a wild side and is not interested in maintaining routine social engagements either.
He gravitates to men and women who are intellectually exciting and like to discuss topics broadly and thoroughly.
He tends to like someone who is spontaneous, even mischievous, as well as a mate who can appreciate his rugged individualism and support of his drive to succeed.
A few excerpts from his personality test:
- I enjoy competitive conversations
- I am tough-minded
- When making a decision, I like to stick to the facts rather than be swayed by people's feelings
His 12 interests
in his own words...
Some people might say I live in my head, but I'm a writer and editor, and to do those things well that's where you have to spend a fair amount of time. I was very active when I was younger, a soccer player in high school and college, but blowing out my knee put a stop to that, although after it healed I played softball and learned to ski. Now my outdoor life consists of the occasional hunting trip and nature photography. I like movies, and I wrote and directed one in Germany last year. I'm a published novelist. I don't know if an ideal match exists, but it would have to be someone who's comfortable in her own skin and won't mistake the occasional privacy that writers need for aloofness or disinterest. I like cats but I'm allergic to them. I'm not really a dog person. I make due with the occasional visit from two neighborhood cats who drop by to hang out when I'm reading on the deck and stick around until something more interesting turns up, like a grasshopper. Please, if you're a 30 year old who lives more than a thousand miles away, don't send me winks or emails. The truth is that it's creepy, and it feels like the opening plot point of a movie on the Lifetime channel. I've gotten half a dozen now, and they don't get any less weird. I'm interested in meeting someone more or less my own age so we have a common frame of reference to draw on. If you can't remember where you were when Kennedy was shot or when Nixon resigned or when John Lennon stopped to sign an autograph for a head case in front of the Dakota, then I'm almost certainly too old for you. I'm a Myers-Briggs INTP, which should tell you a whole lot more about me than "I'm a Scorpio" if, as the Dude would say, you're not into the whole brevity thing.
