I like this thread! This seems fun!

I think I come off to people as more mild and laid back, so people who know me are surprised pretty much without exception when they find out that I love super super spicy food (my go-to snack is pepper jack nachos with ghost pepper salsa).

People probably don't know (well, this isn't a trait, but an uncommon occurrence) but in kindergarten, I went to a school, then I went to another school, but because of my birthday I had to redo kindergarten, and then I went back to my other school, but skipped first grade and went to second grade, and then after a couple years I transferred back to the other school, a year ahead of everyone I knew.

:D

Also I placed top 3 in Girls Nationals (for chess) at some point in my life.

I did not know this. Huh. Well, we all have our personal beliefs. 

Wait, I need to know. Do you guys put toothpaste on the toothbrush before or after wetting it?

I hate and fear confrontation even though I can give talks and presentations in front of large crowds on the fly.

Especially at school, I tend to dress just a touch above what most people would consider casual.  A lot of long skirts, tucked in shirts and blouses, and boots.  I've never worn shorts or sweats or pajamas to school, and I think I wore a t-shirt once.  And almost everything I wear is more cool toned and dark.  So the time I turned up in a Marine Corps t-shirt and a light colored button down over it for warmth threw a few folks for a loop, since it was so unlike almost everything I'd worn to school before.

I'm also very good at managing people and taking the lead, even though I intensely dislike it.  I'm just very good at faking it until the situation is over.

Those are the only things I can think off, I'm a bit of an open book.

I feel that! I usually dress a little more formal as well (also usually monochrome blue, my favorite color, but that's besides the point) and my friends were shocked when one day I walked in with sweats on and even to this day the rare days I wear them at least one person comments on it.

I actually also A little bit like bookworm have skipped a grade. I also came within the top 15 on the national history bowl on the same thread as the last few I almost always wear a button up and dress pants

Yoooo saaaame

This is a fairly recent thing i’ve learned about myself. I absolutely hate all kinds of confrontation. Like, say it’s me and one other coworker in the place i work. They go outside to take a quick break, and then things get busy. I should simply open the door and be like “hey, we got some orders to do” and everything would be fine. but that feels too confrontational so instead i make rationalizations and just handle the rush by myself. I just hate telling people what to do. Trying to get better at this though. 

Also same with the public speaking thing, never been an issue. Like, to me, being on stage with a microphone is a position of power. I can say literally anything i want, and that information will go directly into your brains. That’s powerful.

Both. Well, I wet the toothbrush, put on toothpaste, then wet it again. I'm weird like that.

Why am I suddenly blanking on what I do- after I remember I will come back with an answer.

You... should wet your toothbrush.

KIMCHI IS UNBEATABLE.

Wait that's so awesome... If you like code and stuff, you should read The Woman All Spies Fear. It's really good. Also, Enigma Game. Still. I could never...

I wear blazers. Everywhere. A fun, casual 4th of July Party? Let me show up in a blazer. Blazers are simply unbearable.

This is a really, really long response, and I am doing this instead of working. Which I should be doing. Which I am not. Ah, the hole that is the Shard.

I'm really good at RipStik-ing. Well, I can't do tricks, but I can bend down and pick up a stone while riding. Also my brother @Spencer Nightshade and I can light-lance(grab hands) and pivot around each other.

I also loath confrontation.

Additionally, I'm extremely knowledgeable in the realm of trivia.  I tend the know a little bit about everything. Jeopardy is my game.

Ooh, I thought of another!  I can be somewhat laconic, so when people see me in my chaotic element of being a very enthusiastic nerd, it's a surprise.

I spend an idiotic amount of time obsessing over what to post. For example, a few posts ago I spent at least a full minute deciding which emoji to use. Then it niggled at the back of my mind for ten minutes until I went back and edited it. This and my unpractised English is why I sound a little robotic sometimes, especially in my AMA <_<

HAHA I think that happens to us all some time. Also, your English sounds great. You have better grammar and punctuation then... most people I know.
And they grew up speaking English.

It's actually hilarious. I wonder why?

That happens to a lot of us probably. Definitely happens to me. And, like Symph said, you actually sound much better than a lot of the people I know, and I know I've never noticed any robotism. ^_^

Also @SymphonianBookworm I wet my toothbrush first, like normal people do :ph34r:

My standard wardrobe is grey semi-formal pants similar to regular khakis, and a polo shirt, so I fit in the above-average dress category. I'm pretty even-keeled so most people are surprised to find out that at age 22 I broke my first bone (my pinky) by trying to do a breakdance windmill on grass (bad idea, don't try it. You need a nice smooth and slippery surface to do that kind of spin well).

I may write no, but I did not start until I was 13 and it was an accident.

I was also the person who read history textbooks for fun during breaks in school.
