Everybody is struggling with something, try not to be a dick...
Welcome. If you'd like to learn more about me, please read my journal.
I admire preciseness, refinement, a fastidious love of cleanliness, hygiene and good order,
conventionality and an aristocratic attitude of reserve. I tend to be usually observant,
shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, practical supporters of the status quo,
and tend toward conservatism in all aspects of my life. On the surface I can seem to be
emotionally cold, but this goes deeper, for my habit of suppressing my natural kindness
may in the end cause it to atrophy, with the result that I shrink from committing myself
to friendships. This is a flaw that I find myself currently fighting against.
But the outward lack of feeling sometimes conceals too much on my emotions, to which I am
sometimes afraid of giving way because I do not trust others, nor do I sometimes have
confidence in myself and my judgments. This is because I am conscious of certain shortcomings
in myself of worldliness, of practicality, of sophistication and of outgoingness.
So, I bring the art of self concealment to a high pitch, hiding my apprehensiveness about
me and my often considerable sympathy with other people under a mantle of matter-of-factness
and undemonstrative, quiet reserve. I contain still waters that run deep. Yet in my unassuming,
outwardly cheerful and agreeable fashion, I can be sensible, discreet, well spoken, wise
and witty, with a good understanding of other people's problems which I can tackle with a
practicality not always evident in my own personal relationships.
I find myself always intellectually inquiring, methodical and logical, studious and teachable.
I combine mental ingenuity with the ability to produce a clear analysis of the most complicated
problems. I tend to have an excellent eye for detail but sometimes I may be so meticulous
that I neglect larger issues.
Language I especially use correctly, clearly, consciously and formally, as grammarians and
etymologists rather than for literary interests, yet I also contain a good memory for apt
quotations. I often need the stimulus of practical problems to be solved rather than the
mere routine or working to set specifications that need no thought.
My faults are the extremes of my virtues. Fastidious reticence and modesty become
old-maidishness and persnicketiness; balanced criticism becomes carping and nagging;
concern for detail becomes overspecialization. I sometimes am liable to indecision in
wider issues and this can become chronic, turning molehills of minor difficulties into
Himalayas of crisis. My prudence can sometimes become guile and my carefulness, turned
in on myself, can produce me to become a worrier and a hypochondriac.
My greatest strength lies in my practicality, sharp mind and attention to detail.
When merged with my willingness to serve, I can become essential helpmates. I can be picky -- so what?
Poor grammar and spelling is a turn off. Please, take pride in your
intelligence and take the time to speak and write correctly.
Whether you like it or not, people will judge you by it.
To be honest, I love most genres of music; be it Soul or Classical, Electronic or Industrial,
Folk or Pop. I do like some Country, but that is one genre that I can't really get into,
and I've tried to like it.
