I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom. -Simone de Beauvoir

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

She enjoys new ideas and novel experiences which she wants to share with an enthusiastic partner.

She 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 her personality test:

  • I like to figure out how things work
  • I am intrigued by rules and patterns that govern systems
  • I vividly imagine both wonderful and horrible things happening to me

in her own words...

I'm a philosopher type looking for another philosopher type. I love animals and think seriously about our moral and legal obligations to them.* (See note at bottom.) I care deeply about how best to order society but loathe politics and nationalism. I do not see the tension between religion and science since religion does not deal in the material world while science is limited to it. I am deeply fascinated by questions regarding the limits of science as a theory of knowledge though I will never see how these are so often understood as arguments for religion. I do not see the necessary tension between social/moral/epistemological constructivism and essentialism though I do think hard essentialism is the more dangerous of the two extremes politically. I try every day to rid myself of the Christian notion of "guilt" ingrained in me by virtue of my having grown up in middle America. Beginning to shed this worthless and artificial emotion has been incredibly freeing for me and has afforded me the advantage of not having to catch personal feelings over things like office politics, snide remarks, passive aggressiveness and so on. The resilience I've developed in the place of this stupid metaphysical concept of "guilt" has been a great source of empowerment for me. *In so doing I have come to realize how crucial the animal question is in motivating our concepts of ourselves/humanity. Our misunderstanding of the human-animal relation hitherto has permitted horrible injustices whereby we judge Other races, genders, etc. as "animal-like" and so not worthy of human rights. This question of the human-animal relation has become so important to me that I have decided to devote my life and research to it, and am currently working on a research fellowship tackling animal rights from the phenomenological perspective.

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
