Describe Yourself In a Sentence

Pretty much the title of the thread.

If you could describe yourself (truthfully and wholeheartedly) in a sentence, how would you?
And I don't mean the kind of stuff you're into, or random trivia about you. I mean the person you really are, the real you.

How would you describe yourself?

Like race, class, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, optimistic, pessimistic, marital status, occupation, talents. Things like that?

I'm guessing they mean this sort of format-

"A man who prides himself on honesty, loyalty, & righteousness, who always puts family first & would give you the shirt off his back."

Not that there's any of those on this site.

You do end up pleasing CyberCubed, but I don't think that was the intention

I'm a way bigger dick on here than in real life. I'd never talk to someone that way in real life, but mainly because I just wouldn't associate with that big of a fool.

I guess the most truthful response is what first comes to mind so without a lot of editing. I like to ask questions, look for the best in people, balance logic and emotion, take risks but don't always think of the consequences because I can over think.

Eh... no idea. I'm introverted, like games, football, heavy metal, have trouble fitting in, not very social, etc. Want more?

I'd never use those things to describe/define myself in one sentence... they're not the reason(s) why I turned out the way I did.

A bubbly person who prefers to stay to herself a lot but doesn't mind the occasional social interaction when it comes up.

Hmm, that's a tough one. I'm- complicated. I'd describe myself as someone who is frank, honest, sometimes temperamental and opinionated, but generally easy-going with a mostly optimistic outlook, who tries to see all sides of an issue, and tries to get along with everyone.

Not bad. I can relate to that.

Tough to focus on one area, but the one constant these days seems to be below.

Mis understood personality, who everyone likes to dogpile on and insult directly as some kind of new internet sport.....and then go on to preach peace and prosperity and understanding .

My time on the modern internet is eroding that part of me sadly.

Something along those lines, yeah.

I thought it would be interesting seeing how we each see ourselves and how many would answer truthfully compared to how many would only say good things.

Interesting descriptions so far.


As for me here's mine:
An insecure and self-hating dude who has serious social issues, screws things up a lot, and who can't do the right thing, despite his best efforts.

I don't think there's a way to describe yourself (positively or negatively) without coming off as self important.
