(this is his dominant personality type)



(he also shows elements of this type)


38 | Washington, District of Columbia

An old soul who enjoys new adventures (Or: An academic with aesthetics and a Catholic with a cosmopolitan streak)

He sees the big picture and can easily take the broad, long view of almost any topic. And he also has an adventurous side.

He enjoys new ideas and novel experiences which he wants to share with an enthusiastic partner.

He particularly enjoys people who like to play with abstract theories and ideas, provide insights, search for symbolic meanings in life and relationships and have a broad interest in the world.

A few excerpts from his personality test:

  • I am able to solve problems without letting emotion get in the way
  • My friends would say I am very curious
  • I like to get to know my friends' deepest needs and feelings

in his own words...

II ended up as a geopolitical risk consultant by way of performing in a production of a Cole Porter musical ("Anything Goes".) Since then, on the professional side I've picked up an MA in foreign affairs, and MS in strategic intelligence (prompted by nothing more than it sounded interesting.) Driven and diligent are defining features and I a strong, grounded partner is ideal (think John and Abigail Adams) In counterpoint to this, I find time to sing tenor on Sundays and to learn piano (the latter prompted by a desire to be musically self-sufficient). My bookshelves (and the stacks of books that do not fit on these overburdened shelves) attest to varied interests (e.g. International relations theory sits next to Sondheim.) Imbibing knowledge as I do, I can, at times, be pensive and I need someone who can understand that me needing space doesn't mean I care any less (and I understand my partner's need for same). In other words, fair warning, I'm an eclectic academic who doesn't fit neatly into this, or any, era (although I'll take Tiffany-style lamps and American arts-and-crafts residential architecture over Swedish modern any day.) However, I'm not a homebody by any means. That said, my idea of an evening out is not consistent with my peers - I'll take cocktails, a good dinner, and an evening at the theater or symphony rather than clubbing (a night club, in my book, should have waiters and an orchestra, or at least a jazz combo.) There's no cure like travel - and given the hours I work (albeit happily) I've learned that vacations are a necessary restorative. but I'll save my money for something sumptuous and urbane. Dreams? Get around to writing my novel, being the next Walter Lippmann (but I'll settle for Walter Winchell), and writing the lyrics for a Broadway musical. Looking ahead I see life as a tapestry, the complexity of unexpected intersections between ideas; unforeseen inspirations from people and places; and a depth of emotions to color it all.

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
