More about me:
- Patient: I am very very very patient with things.
- Independent: I like to be independent as much as possible. If something can be done without getting help from others, I will do it on my own.
- Task-oriented: I am good at completing specific tasks given to me, however I am not good at guessing the requirement.
- Quantifying: I like quantified things, such as rankings, scores, points.
Tell me how you feel about them.
- Joke: I like to joke about things and sometimes people take my jokes too seriously and I get into troubles.
- Contradictory perspectives: I like to consider things from different stands(perspectives of people from different backgrounds), even if some of them are contradictory to mine.
- Perfection, forever: I like things that are perfect or work forever, without the need to amend them. e.g. date format as 29/Apr/2014AD.
- Own principles: I follow principles that I could justify by myself, and expect others to follow them as well.
- Protect the weak: I find it natural to help the weaker party or side, regardless of the situation.
- Challenge: I like to try things that I’m not good at as a challenge.
- Commitment: I don’t like to be committed to something.
- Happy: I am almost always happy.
- Special / Different: I am almost always the special / different one in any occasions and settings.
Help me do better at these.
- Ontological arrogance: I demonstrate ontological arrogance, according to someone who talked to me.
- Myopic: I am not good at getting the bigger picture or thinking of long-term goals.
- Over-promise, under-deliver: I have a tendency to give a promise that sounds great and later procrastinate and deliver something less impressive or miss the targeted deadline.
- Pretend to be good: I find it hard to admit that I am not good at something even though I know it.
- What I want: I don’t know what I want, that’s why I keep delaying the decision.
- I am interesting enough for you to read until this part of the page 🙂
- I call myself 16x engineer for personal branding. I also own the 16x.engineer domain.
- I suggested CSS fixes to stackoverflow and phabricator.
- I got myself a granted patent (US9984148B2) on visualization when interning at IBM.
- My handle, paradite is a portmanteu of paradise and parasite. Depending on your personality and mood, you may read it as different words.
Drivers and Motivations
- I am driven by curiosity and self-expression.
- In 2022, I left my high-paying software engineer job to pursue startup.
- I want to understand how tech companies are able to make so much money (business side of things), and how much value I can create on my own (instead of being a part of a big corporation).
- I want to build my own products and share my ideas with the world.
“paradite is a mashup of paradise and parasite”. use the word “portmanteu” instead of “mashup”.it suits better what you are trying to convey
Well that would fit nicely into https://paradite.com/vocabulary/ !
it’s portmanteau though
