If you're not my friend, I still insult you, only now I mean it. I'm fun to be around, I can be wacky and I'm usually funny, but you WILL be insulted. And for the love of god don't open yourself up to debate, I will argue with you. So in short I'm the guy at the party chirping everyone but having a great time with everyone, friendly and outgoing and such. Also loaded.
Holy shit, you just described me. I'd describe myself as the resident lawyer, because counselor suggests that I give more caring advice. I'm more of the "Do this, because I'm right." school of thought. I'm also...hmmm, this is complex. A back-up hub? The support system for the hub? I'm not usually the hub of a group, but I tend to be the right-hand man. Hubs come up with ideas, I implement them and wrangle people into them. I'm also the resident encourager - "Take another drink!" "Go skydiving!". People have tried to make me into the resident landfill, but I've perfected the art of aggressively not caring.
I feel sorry for the people who describe themselves as one of the orbiters. I've been fortunate enough to have tight groups of friends in high school and college. In both cases, the solar system model is mostly inaccurate, it's more of a constellation. We have a lot of smart, funny, motivated people, and it's made life much more bearable than when I was subscribing to the solar system plan.
If I were a Viking god, I don't think I would fall for that.
But if I were a Viking, that's exactly what I would do.
How can you study geometry and not believe in a God?
A God of perfect points and planes,
Surrounded by arch-angels and right angles
