She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

Sociophobic? You mean like social phobia? Yes, of course. You, earlier:

Its not so much my fav movies but rather movies that sum up aspects of my personality.

The Princess Bride is an accurate representation of the kind of humor I find funny.

The Princess Bride and Stardust are the kind of adventure/romances I seek.

A Dog's Purpose stresses the love I have for dogs and how I view dogs as a big part of the family.

The Truman Show because existentialism is a fundamental philosophy I live by.

And Kill Bill because strong, female leads are 100% desirable.

You list films that best describe your personality

The films do not have to be your favourites at all

From the lists so far we have some very intersting characters indeed

So from this post we can say that this individual likes

being alone for very long periods of time

is generally more logical than emotional

although prone to some paranoia and anxiety

doesnt think life makes much sense in the grand scheme of things

but finds a strange kind of comfort in that so just accepts it without question

but you will have to ask him if you want to be absolutely certain of any of this

In no particular order:

Contact
The man from Earth
The Quiet Earth
Cast Away
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb


Okay, I think I see the theme here. :(

My movies basically sum up my political views, the importance I hold on freedom of expression, religious views, skepticism, early drug problems, and irreverence.

I hadn't thought of Castaway, but it fits me too. Contact was the first one that came to mind. :)

Contact
Castaway
The Arrival
National Lampoon's Vacation
Fletch Lives

Those comedies help illustrate my " :teef: " qualities.

The Wizard of Oz.

I could be any of those characters therein, including the witches.
