He’s well spoken, intensely curious, and wickedly intelligent,
Well thank you for that the intelligent part is a little too much but thanks. I’m always curious when it comes to new things. It may take me a while to get really interested but when I do…
indicating that he’s well educated, if not formally, then through life experience.
My formal education well let’s say I really did not finish anything. I started my first year of university and dropped out half way through because it did not interest me. I had build my own microprocessor system the year before and was forced to learn the basics of electricity all over again. That did not last very long.
The next year I started Computer science and was appalled by the level of education. I even had to correct the math teacher twice the first lesson he gave. The IBM assembler classes where interesting at first but after a while they got boring too. I wrote a program to sort with binary trees in IBM370 assembler and the teacher did not even know what I was doing. From that moment on I felt that nobody in any teacher capacity could teach me anything new so I quit.
Everything from then on is self taught. Once I dig into a subject I can spend hours on end reading and analyzing stuff.
Contrary to popular belief (i.e. the DAFFCON scale), @Daffy is fairly patient, and slow to anger, but when he reaches his limit, he tends to go nuclear.
Yep I really be patient when it comes to explaining things to people that don’t know about a certain subject.
He’s got little tolerance for laziness or deceit, and even less for excuses - he believes that if you have the capability to do something right, then doing anything less is unacceptable.
Yes when I get to know someone and they have a certain position and work to do I expect them to do it well or not at all. I have zero tolerance for people that claim to know something and then spout nonsense on that subject.
Family, by blood or otherwise, is of utmost importance,
Well I love my grandkids but sometimes they can be very exhausting I really wish I had their energy sometimes.
and he is, at heart, quite kind.
Yes I try to learn and keep learning. I really don’t understand why not everybody is doing that. I see a lot of people asking the same questions over and over again and still not be able to understand the subject matter or even grasp the basics. Oh well it is probably me that does not understand.
You like to help people and have a passion for it. You don’t let the truth stand un-noticed but you don’t like the drama that may come with it.
Well if I see someone that needs help and I can provide it why should I refuse it?
Yes sometimes the drama is too much and I try to ignore it.
You come from a well to do family and you have some conservative and some liberal values.
Now this is really not correct I have to struggle sometimes. I should really find a subject that could help me with that and bite myself into it.
You work in a technical capacity and are very good at what you do to the point it is annoying to your superiors that are not even close to your abilities.
If they are annoyed with me that I know more than they I will not stay in that employment long. If they recognize my talents and use that then they are worthy of my praise else not so much.
Socially you are very laid back and easy to engage though you do not waste time nonsense. You have a good sense of humor and can crack a jock with the best but time management is important to you and fun time has a place.
I always try to get to the point I only live once and really I have no time for nonsense.
Loyalty is a quality you have even when people don’t know it.
Now this is surprising. How did you find out this?
