More about me:

The Good

  • 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.

The Good/Bad

  • 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. time 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.

The Bad

  • 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.

The Interesting

  • I am interesting enough for you to read until this part of the page 🙂
  • I got an E grade for General Paper (GP, a subject for comprehension and essay writing) during high school prelim exam for having “disturbing thoughts” against the elderly in my essay, but eventually I got an A for the A Levels GP, during which I argued why economic progress is more important than human rights.
  • 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.


  1. “paradite is a mashup of paradise and parasite”. use the word “portmanteu” instead of “mashup”.it suits better what you are trying to convey
