Greetings and salutations!  I figured I'd go about writing one of these up since I'm probably the one about whom the least is known.

(Part of the format shamelessly stolen from LeRev's page Very Happy )

Name: Zane "Zeerahks" O'Connelley
Age: 18
Date of Birth: 18/06/1990
Birthplace: Minneapolis, MN
Sex: Male
Gender: Masculine
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Relationship status: Single
Current location: Morris, MN
Attending college: University of Minnesota, Morris
Political Ideology: Anarcho-primitivism (if I had to pick one)

Interests (in rough order of significance and/or topic): Martial Arts, Swordfighting, swordmaking, military tactics and strategy, personal and group combat, Computer Programming, Computer Graphics, building computers, Anarcho-primitivism, fantasy/"hard sci-fi" fiction, reading, (occasional) writing, hiking, camping, canoeing, parkour, urban exploration, psychology, philosophy.

Hobbies: Aikido, video games, reading (sci-fi/fan, military manual, sun tzu, miyamoto musashi, etc), boffers

A bit more about me:

Hi, I'm Zane.  You can call me Zane, Z, Zeerahks, or anything else.  I go by many names, both in real life and online.  I answer to all of them, and they are all me (that is, I don't give a name any particular significance.  It is simply a label by which to distinguish me from all the other guys out there).

I joined the commune by way of STW (which is true of the majority of us, I believe).  I joined STW by stumbing on it (something that takes up most of my Internet time Very Happy ) and deciding that it was of enough interest to me to warrant involvement.  I initially joined the commune because I wanted to have a place to crash during my travels.

Since then, my intent has changed a bit.  I've come to realize that our society, through our authority figures, pushes us from birth on the desired path by telling us that we can make a difference in the world and that by following the "correct" path our lives will have a meaning.  However, the huge majority of the people who follow that path end up not having any meaning in their lives.

So, I decided, rather than telling myself that my life would have a meaning, but then never achieving it, that I would simply accept that I would not seek to make a difference, not seek to have meaning in my life.  That I would, rather than pursuing a goal, simply live.  And that is why I'm a part of all this.

You won't find any pictures of me on here for a couple reasons.  The first is that I'm not fond of putting images of myself online.  I prefer meeting people in person (see next paragraph for a few reasons).  The second reason is simply that I don't think that any photo of me is very good.  To me, photos are 2D representations of 4D people, and as such simply can't convey the volume of information they should.

A few reasons why I prefer meeting people in person is that I am incredibly good at remembering faces (even if I'll forget names), and if I've ever met you, I'll generally remember you (no guarantees after 10+ years have gone by).  Also, after spending some time with people, I can generally pick them out of a crowd simply by how they walk and carry themselves.

For being an anarchist, I don't own a single article of solid black clothing.  I don't define myself by what I wear, although I understand those who do.  I am simply content with knowing who I am.  Everyone else can go to hell for all I care.

Anyway, if you've read this far (I'm impressed if you have!), you now know a bit more about me.  If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask: I am (usually) quite open about anything.

Oh, another bit of important info about me:

I'm an IN(T/F)P on the Myers-Briggs rating (~60% T, ~40% F).

Ehh....you really don't have to read that whole page...I certainly haven't.

Here are the two variants that I am:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Architect_(Role_Variant)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healer_(Role_Variant)

I've found that while I do have INFP (healer) traits, I'm mostly an INTP (architect).  I've attached the description.

If you're interested in finding your type, here's a link to a small quiz:

http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

----

Architects are introspective, pragmatic, informative, and attentive. The scientific systemization of all knowledge, or Architectonics, is highly developed in Architects, who are intensely curious and see the world as something to be understood. Their primary interest is to determine how things are structured, built, or configured. Architects are designers of theoretical systems and new technologies. Rearranging the environment to fit their design is a distant goal of Architects.

Of all the role variants, Architects are the most logically and verbally precise. In casual conversations, they may be tempted to point out errors the other speaker makes, with the simple goal of maintaining clarity within the exchange. In serious discussions, Architects' abilities to detect distinctions, inconsistencies, contradictions, and frame arguments gives them an enormous advantage. In debates, Architects can sometimes be devastating, or alienate themselves from the group with overly logical arguments.

Of all the role variants, Architects have the greatest ability to analyze the world in depth.[citation needed] They prefer to quietly work alone and they may shut other people out if they are focused on analysis. This, coupled with the fact that Architects are usually shy, makes it difficult for other individuals to get to know them. In social exchanges, Architects are more interested in informing others about what they have learned than they are interested in directing the actions of others.

Credentials or other forms of traditional authority do not impress Architects. Instead, logically coherent statements are the only things that seem to persuade them. Architects highly value intelligence, and can be impatient with people with less ability than they have. Architects often perceive themselves as being one of the few individuals capable of defining the ends a society must achieve and will often strive to find the most efficient means to accomplish their ends. This perspective can make Architects seem arrogant to others.

OK...so it's been a while; probably about time to update the information here.

I've changed a lot in the last couple of years; mostly just continuing to grow up.

I've learned that one of my greatest passions is learning and teaching martial arts; my life project/goal/thing is to start the first self-sufficient martial arts academy in the United States.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to realize that goal, but I'll be damned if I don't try.

I've also learned that I can't spend my life sitting behind a desk for 40 hours a week.  I can do it in small doses, but more than a couple months and I start going crazy.  This is part of the reason I'm still very enthused about the commune project.

Anyway, that's all I've got for now.
