Yo folks. So, here's the deal.
Right now I'm a very sad panda because I had a lengthy introduction/self-description typed up (wanted you guys to type me) and had it in the preview window, then in my caffeine-induced absentminded rush I SHUT DOWN THE COMPUTER WITHOUT HITTING SUBMIT. Hence the title of this thread. So I'm going to write a brand-spanking-new biased self-descriptive rant which will hopefully benefit from the first which has most regrettably passed away.
To start, I'm a 1st-year college student (I'm sitting in comp security foundations class right now) who was first majoring in Computer Security, but then switched to Game Design because that shit seemed boring. I've been wanting to design games since I was but a youngling. When I got my first computer at age 10 my parents could hardly pry me away from the thing. I've been a tech nerd ever since. I quickly started half-finishing text adventures, RPG's, and proof-of-concept type games. Right now I'm working on a satirical online world for the game Neverwinter Nights (it has a toolset for you to make your own stuff). I also like philosophy, psychology, roleplaying, and technology. I like talking about that sort of thing, but most people don't get it or just aren't interested.
Socially, most of my friends would say I'm pretty outgoing, but I'd say otherwise. I can be a social animal for a few days, then I need a day or two of zoning out to defrag my brain. When I'm in zone-out mode, I can't seem to think and I can't kick myself back into go-getter mode, either. I hate that I can't be full of energy all the time, and avoid social contact whilst defragging. Being in unfamiliar situations or around people I want to impress is apt to engage me. In these cases I act according to sort of an idealized self-image. Until I need to recharge again I'm smart, funny, crazy, and daring.
Most people would say I'm pretty negative, and I can see where they're coming from. But most of my negativity isn't emo moping but rather comes in the form of pitch-black humor. My INTP friend said I have the darkest sense of humor of anyone he's ever met (and INTP humor is pretty dark!). I am a definite realist and I know that the world can be a cold, impersonal place but I don't usually let it drag me down.
I graduated valedictorian (1st in class) in high school, and I'm relatively smart (120-130 IQ?) but it was mostly out of habit. My school had low standards and getting the high marks wasn't very stressful, so I just rolled with it. I was a lazy bastard, really. I would whip up assignments just before class started, cram for tests, and cheat where I had to. Given I was pretty laid back about the whole thing, it was pretty funny to watch the other top-of-class "smart kids" work their asses off to keep up with me and start rumors about how I was going to get a B- in such-and-such class.
Yes, I'm laid back about it, but I DO set high standards for myself. I like to be smart. I like to be funny. I like to be successful. I like to be the best. If I can't be any of these, I don't freak out, but I won't enjoy myself or hold much pride in what I do (for example, I work at a department store and it's not exactly something I excel at. I don't like my job and consequently am pretty unmotivated). I have GOALS, but they're vague and I work toward them on an unconscious level. I like to LEAD, but I don't like people to know it. It's a guilty pleasure. If a leader needs to volunteer for a group project, I'll wait 5 seconds to make sure no one else is gung-ho about doing it, then mock-hesitantly say, "I guess I'll do it." I like projects to move according to my vision, and if someone is doing a bad job of leading I'd end up arguing with them and pointing them in my direction anyway. This only goes for my subjects of interest. I wouldn't try to lead a project at work because I don't find retail interesting.
I have a very short attention span. I have trouble concentrating. I tire of activities quickly. But I'm an expert multi-tasker provided I'm feeling energetic.
I figure that's enough to form a guess. If I posted this in the wrong place, you have any questions before you form a guess, or want me to know I'm an arrogant bastard for expecting you to sift through a mountain of text to type someone who just walked through the door, don't hesitate.
