On First Impressions

Last updated Aug 2, 2022

Someone told me the other day about first impressions – “when you talk to someone new, do you go in knowing what you want them to leave with?”

Made me think more about how I present myself to the world. What do I share? What should I keep to myself?

I’m so scattered in my interests that I never know what to say when people ask me what I do or what I like. I’d much rather listen to what someone else is doing and just absorb.

I am:

  • an engineer
  • a community builder
  • a connector
  • an experience planner

I am interested in:

  • social impact
  • crypto
  • technology-enabled sustainability
  • psychology
  • what motivates people
  • social structures, social mobility, the ladders that people climb
  • structural inequality
  • education
  • culture and its impact on upbringing and beliefs
  • games and their impact on life performance
  • what success means

How do I refine this list into a clearer personal story or narrative?
