About me

On Debate.org and Edeb8.com, I’m the user Tejretics. I’m a student in high school who’s interested in pursuing a career in either academia or policy analysis. I spend most of my free time reading interesting books, blogging, and listening to music. My MBTI type is INTJ-A (though I realize that MBTI, in general, has major deficiencies). As far as formal debate goes, I have a reasonable amount of experience in the World Schools and British Parliamentary formats.

== Beliefs ==
I’m a slightly left-of-center modern liberal, intersectional feminist, environmentalist, weak atheist, existentialist, moral realist, supervenience physicalist, and preference utilitarian. 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 -1.88 (economic), -5.74 (social).
My views on social, political, and economic issues are primarily influenced by philosophers (e.g., Peter Singer, Martha Nussbaum, bell hooks, Noam Chomsky, Michael Huemer, Katarzyna de Lazari-Radek, John Stuart Mill), economists (e.g., Paul Krugman, Alan Krueger, Greg Mankiw, Janet Yellen, Christina Romer, Scott Sumner, Tyler Cowen, Ben Bernanke, John Cochrane, Jason Furman, Alex Tabarrok, Daren Acemoglu), scholars of international relations (e.g., John Mearsheimer, Kenneth Waltz, Stephen Walt, Robert Gates, Philip Bobbit, Frank Harvey, Kenneth Pollack, Dennis Ross, Robert Kagan), biologists and human scientists (e.g., Jared Diamond, Yuval Harari, Richard Dawkins [although I’ve got very little respect for his role in New Atheism], Stephen Jay Gould), and bloggers (e.g., Julia Galef, Scott Alexander, Ozy Brennan, Luke Muehlhauser, Brian Tomasik, Katja Grace, Anonymous Mugwump, Random Critical Analysis, Sam Bowman, Ben Southwood, Matthew Yglesias, Ezra Klein).
