i spend much time on looking into things that grab my interest. i like to create theories to be proved or disproved. psychology and the concept of the mind interest me immensely, and i am currently trying to research how layered thinking may work. i usually put even important things aside when i see that i can work on an idea or a breakthrough in one of my interests.
i like to be creative; i spend much time drawing, modeling, designing and writing. i usually get a "rush" of passion that i exploit to create something directly from my imagination. whenever i do this, i seem to get motivated by what i have created to keep going; but even if not motivated, i am inclined to finish off the piece for the sake of finishing it off.
whenever i'm not at home, i spend time socializing with other people. i study software development at at university, where i also work in the student bar. i am usually outgoing; i have many acquaintances, but few friends. i have a very high standard of whom i would consider a friend; because to me, a friend is a person you can share your thoughts with and create something extraordinary. whenever i spend time with a friend, it's not unlikely our ping-pong discussions lead us to a conclusion of a theory about something that has recently surfaced in the news or in other, deeper contexts. after prolonged exposure to people, however, i need to be alone.
i really like technology, learning about inner workings and subtle mechanics, and i love to tinker with new gadgets. whenever i get a hold of a new device, i take a look at the potential of its functions before creating my own (not necessarily legit) ways of exploiting it to make it do what i want it to do. whenever i see a system of things, i can't help but try to analyze how it works and if there would be ways you could use/exploit it to an advantage. for the systems i create, i spend much time on improving them. this goes for my art as well.
i travel a lot. i get despondent if i stay at home for prolonged periods of time. i need to go, to move, wander; to see how things change, and get inspired by said changes. once every 1 or 2 years, whenever i save up enough money, i go someplace new i haven't been before for a prolonged time. when i do this, i travel alone; because the way that i travel involves risks that i would not put on people. i might have a slight idea or overview of where i'm going, but never more than that. i keep every option free to divert from the given road and go somewhere new and exciting. to this date, i have seen the pacific from both sides, i have gone spelunking in the siberian no man's land and been surrounded by deserts and salt flats while still having seen what most of europe looks like.

i excel at languages, even when i'm not particularly interested in them. i can quickly decipher body language and other ways of creating semantics that other people may not pick up. i'm attentive to how people react and usually adapt my reaction to theirs. i can always relate to someone, and sometimes it seems i have an aura of charisma about myself. i have been accused of using NLP before i ever heard of the term. i rarely empathize with people, because my moral and ethics are pretty much non-existent. to me, something unlawful may be justified by the way it is done, by who it was done to or by who did it. i sometimes get into a state of zen-like trance where i don't notice things around me. people often view me as a sort of monk or trickster, depending on which side they see of me.
