Says the cheshire cat, "Mean what you say, and say what you mean."

It is absolutely crucial to me that my friends accept me as I am unconditionally and so I present an authentic self perception. That perception is not at all static; it is dynamic. I see myself as being in a constant state of becoming. It takes at least a lifetime. Nothing can be clear cut positive/negative. Everything contains the potentiation to be either; it is a matter of perception.

Anyway, I decided it would be best to be straight forward and disclose my supposed "defects," deemed by society as such, in order to encourage you to determine on your own whether or not these are rational, irrefutable reasons to outright reject someone. There is no right or wrong response.

I have adult Attention Deficit Disorder (I am the inattentive as opposed to the hyperactive type) and I have Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. Both keep me busy because I obsess over a new thing whenever I become distracted.

According to the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (M.B.T.I.), I am an INTJ (Introverted/Intuitive/Thinker/Judger). I think it is time that I retake the test because I am better able to identify aspects of myself than at the time I took the test. I am willing to bet, if I retook the test today, I would remain an introvert and fall between all of the functions, excluding extroversion/Introversion), as I am also highly sensitive and observant (making me a IXXX).

My Personality:
I am accepting, adorable, analytical, articulate, considerate, creative, cute, empathic, endearing, fair, free-spirited, genuine, girly, honest, impatient, impulsive, inquisitive, introspective, a linguaphile, logical, loving, meditative, mindful, nerdy, observant, open-minded, playful, perfectionistic, punny, sensitive, and well-read. I have my own sense of style and I swim against the mainstream.

Favorite Quotes:
"When we find no support among others for our deeply felt truths, we can either feel isolated and bitter, or celebrate the fact that our vision is strong enough even to survive the powerful human need for the approval of family, friends, or colleagues. If you are facing such a situation now, be aware of how you are choosing to view your 'aloneness' and take responsibility for the choice you have made." - Excerpted from The Osho Zen Tarot

"Be a light unto yourself." - Guatam Buddha
