I am a woman born 1949 and my quest is to find a mindmate
to grow old together as a mutually devoted couple
in a relationship based upon the
egalitarian rational commitment paradigm
bonded by intrinsic commitment
as each other's safe haven and secure basis.

The purpose of this blog is to enable the right man
to recognize us as reciprocal mindmates and
to encourage him to contact me:

The entries directly concerning,
who could be my mindmate,
are mainly at the beginning.
If this is your predominant interest,
I suggest to read this blog in the same order
as it was written, following the numbers.

I am German, therefore my English is sometimes faulty.

Maybe you have stumbled upon this blog not as a potential match.
Please wait a short moment before zapping.

Do you know anybody, who could be my mindmate?
Your neighbour, brother, uncle, cousin, colleague, friend?
If so, please tell him to look at this blog.
While you have no reason to do this for me,
a stranger, maybe you can make someone happy, for whom you care.

Do you have your own webpage or blog,
which someone like my mindmate to be found probably reads?
If so, please mention my quest and add a link to this blog.

59. Wanted: a Label

Wanted: a Label

I perceive myself as a person, who is lucky to have a brain, where rationality is by far stronger than instinctivity.    Every group of people defining themselves by some special trait or interest comes up with a label.    But so far, I have not found any appropriate label for what I consider as a definition of my own core personality and identity.  

One group of childfree atheists are calling themselves 'selfish heathens', but even though this is meant to be irony, I perceive it as too pejorative.   
Then I thought to have found a well suitable label:  Cerebral.   Googling it, I found that it is unfortunately already occupied by those more intelligent than 99.7 % of the population.   

The best, that I can think of right now, is hypoinstinctive, because that word seems to have not yet been used by anybody for anything else, as it does not show up on google.    But as a label is incomplete, because it expresses low instinctivity, but does not include the higher rationality.  

So I could call myself rational-hypoinstinctive, but that is awkwardly long for a label.   

Any better suggestion for a good label welcome.
