A: My intensity and passion are distinguishing features. Some may find it overwhelming, but even those that do are better able to understand that it’s a part of my personality and is usually a great feature because it is contagious and fosters a force thirst for life in those I meet.
A: I’m naturally inclined to do everything I do to the best of my abilities. I feel that giving anything less is pointless. But I’m not upset if I’m not the best.
A: In addition to researching and educating myself I’m an avid soccer player, alpine skier, and outdoorsman. The latter being a slightly less passionate activity, but anything to do outdoors is cool with me. Also, I love food and eating is something that excites me.
A: I’m a geek. So education and educating myself about an ever-expanding array of topics is the greatest pleasurable activity. The neurosciences are my absolute favorite. I’m obsessed with the brain and anything and everything related.
A: I think the single most important truth by which I try to guide my life is something a great professor emphasized daily in his classroom: “Don’t sweat the small stuff, and it’s all small stuff”. He would add that only then can one manage the “big stuff” that life inevitably throws your way. It’s an ethos that has shaped my personality development positively, I believe.
A: As many people do, I find it difficult to take compliments...however, I’m very much self-actualized and have a greater than normal understanding of the best version of myself when compared to the population at large. I’m self-confident and have a greatly resilient self esteem. But I’m still susceptible to Self-depreciation, usually when responding to a compliment though.
A: I would most likely talk a lot about my family, in particular my eldest nephew with whom I bonded more deeply than the other Nieces and nephew, only because it was necessary. Also my education and career have been an important focus up to this point in my life, and an integral factor in my sense of accomplishment, so I’m sure that would weave its way in and out.
A: I don’t have either. I was fortunate to develop physiologically the way I am today. Thus far no working out has been necessary. Thankfully, I was an elite gymnast for 14 years growing up. I worked out 40-50 hours a week at my toughest training times. I don’t want to work out anymore. Lol
A: I have a complex personality. I never intend to make someone feel bad. I’m always trying to help people. And I have an unwavering hope that people are generally good natured.
A: I have a natural ability to sense what people want and know how to make them happy.
A: Although I can be neurotic, (I’m well aware of it having studied the human mind for the better part of my life) I’d never expect someone to be comfortable because of the idiosyncratic behaviors I display and would hope that they can politely bring to my attention such an occurrence. I will always accept constructive feedback and change my behavior accordingly.
A: My inner monologue is absolutely hilarious. I crack myself up.
A: My family is realistically the only thing that I can honestly list here. Oh yea and well prepared food. I love food.
