How do you describe yourself?
It is a simple enough question. I wonder how easy it is to answer and what adjectives might be used, or are they nouns? Some people will associate themselves with their sex, color, religion, nationality or political views - while another might talk of their nature and personality. Are these things important to identify you, are they what make us an individual, or perhaps they are tags that we are constantly removing and adding as the circumstances dictate.
I have always found it interesting how people will be proud of something they have no control over, like their skin color - unless they use it as an adjective, meaning that they exhibit some set of common behaviors with a group - but that implies that all member of the group exhibit the same set of behaviors - which is probably not the case. We don't like being stereotyped, yet we stereotype ourselves every time we associate with a particular group based on what we consider common traits.
But, I guess we all identify ourselves with something and online we are able to identify without having to commit to it long term - we can pick and choose our identity on a daily basis where one day we support a movement against something, the next we are behaving in a contradictory manner, but because no one is really paying attention to us or we to ourselves, we don't feel the conflict.
I think that most of us will change which labels we tag ourselves with depending on the surroundings and pretty much everyone will associate themselves in what they see as positives for one reason or another.
I am ruthless, I am stubborn, I am aggressive and I always win.
Might not be great on a Tinder profile - so they just write "Lawyer", which probably does much better. In the interview for a job at a law firm however, perhaps that kind of what would in other cases be considered negative phrasing, would be suitable and expected. At least on TV.
Let's start dating.
What I thought would be interesting for a bit of discussion and promotion, is if we wrote our own "Hive-self" profile, kind of like a dating profile that is aimed to attract an audience to have a look at what you have to offer. I think 100 words or less is a good size and you can have a bit of fun if you want to. I will start following the best of them and see where it leads.
Hey, I'm @tarazkp and while a huge blockchain and crypto advocate, I spend most of my time in the behavioral aspects of the technology - especially around the concepts of investment, ownership and the Hive community - through this, I hope to add value and improve people's experience on and off the chain. You will find content from me daily, but make sure you're in a comfy chair with coffee in hand, as I do tend to write with a little length and if you take the time to comment, I will do my very best to reply. Thanks for stopping by!
That is exactly 100 words.
For task two, in reply to your own comment, I ask you to write the same kind of 100-word profile blurb for an account you admire and be sure to tag them in the text. It will be this comment that will get an upvote and a few ENGAGE tokens along with it.
Task three is easy, engage with those who make an attempt and check out the content of those you find interesting in some way. It doesn't matter if they are new or old, big or small - Engage. Leave a comment, have a laugh, get to know one another.
Who knows, perhaps you will attract and pick up some great new authors, perhaps you will get some great new followers. It is hard to know exactly what will come of it, but you have to participate and discover, there are plenty of fish in the sea.
