I’m a student in high school who’s interested in economics (development economics in particular) and econometrics. I spend most of my free time reading interesting books, studying from random textbooks I find interesting, taking online courses, blogging, and listening to music. My MBTI type is INTJ-A (though I realize that MBTI, in general, has major deficiencies).
As far as personal beliefs go, I’m a modern liberal with some libertarian tendencies; in general, I’m pretty left-wing on social issues and relatively centrist on economic issues. I’m also a preference utilitarian, intersectional feminist, weak atheist, existentialist, moral realist, and physicalist. My ideal government structure is liberal democracy with independent, unelected central banks. I’m strongly in favor of animal rights and the consideration of the interests of nonhuman animals—both wildlife and captive animals—in policymaking. I also place a lot of value in epistemic humility, even if I fail to live up to it sometimes. My political compass coordinates are -1.13 (economic), -6.15 (social).
