[INTP]Been surfing here for about a year, consuming information to sate my curiosity about human nature after an anima attack ripped it wide open. She was a pretty blonde, so it was ok. Decided it was finally time to register.
I'm 33 and have a PhD in Chemical Engineering. A fascination with gargantuan stainless steel production plants led to my education, but as my intuition for technical matters has shaped how I perceive the world, I've grown much more interested in applying my skills in fuzzier subjects. I get paid to predict the future of the energy and manufacturing industries, and have a growing interest in making people flourish in my workplace. I blame the blonde girl. My longer term itch is to provide people kick-ass secure jobs that defy the social norms for expectation - especially people who have been left thinking they aren't smart enough, skilled enough, or good enough to have one.
Hobbies include music, tracking my car, managing an online game dev team, role playing, fiction writing, reading (95% non fiction), and the stimulating parts of my work.
I'm also a rapid cycling bipolar, which is well managed after 10 years of work at it. I'm always willing to lend support if you or somebody you love is struggling.[/INTP]
