In His Own Words

About Him

NB: this profile belongs to an INTJ

I am a scientist; a certified professional smarty-pants. To borrow from Terry Pratchet, I infinitely prefer the company of those seeking the truth rather than those who think they have found it. Hopefully you find this intriguing rather than intimidating.

Some other stuff not in the pedestrian section below:
Favourite philosopher: Bertrand Russell
Favourite book: A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson
Favourite tv series: Rome
Favourite beverage: Birkenhead Honey Blonde Ale

About His Ideal Match

I imagine an ideal mate to have a reasonably high degree of independence both intellectually and financially, because such independence implies that personal honesty is not just a choice but an unconscious habit. Bonus points if you can recite Wheaton's First Law without googling it.

I will be hesitant to answer your message if:
- you don't like dogs.
- you cannot sit still for 5 minutes.
- you cannot face the world without help from an invisible man in the sky.
- you cannot face the world without first caking on the makeup.
- you cannot face the world without frequent hits of nicotine and/or alcohol.
- you think you need cosmetic surgery to be beautiful.
- the thought of switching your cellphone off for a whole day makes you anxious.
- you don't see what all the fuss is about with texting while driving.
- you think all motorcycle riders are hooligans.
- you don't like kilts and bagpipes.
- you think chess is boring.
- your About Me section consists of, or can be summed up with "down-to-earth", "outgoing", and "fun-loving".
- your poor spelling and grammar would disqualify you from enrolling at university.
- you don't know what the Dunning-Kruger effect is.

Friend: "But all these conditions will eliminate 99% of the dating pool!"
Me: "That, sir, is precisely my intention."
