What Do You Take Me For?

Don't be overly mean. Don't be overly complimentary. For real. What do you take me for?
  1. A chill guy who could potentially get me into Soho House
    Suggested by   @a20something
  2. A hipster celebrity
    Not in a bad way though. I think it's hard to have a concrete opinion on someone you don't know anyway.
    Suggested by   @shadowman
  3. The type of guy at a bar I could have a drunkenly intelligent conversation with but you'd end it with a witty remark and then Irish goodbye away
    Suggested by   @michellejennifer
  4. Talented writer. Genuine person. Unique perspective. I wouldn't turn down the opportunity to get to know you better.
    Suggested by   @Charlie_Chester
  5. I don't really know. It's hard to really "know" people on social media, isn't it? I take you for a seemingly intelligent and funny person who has been fortunate in life but also wants to somehow use fame to accomplish something that contributes to improving humanity. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (Or, "the guy from The Office that wrote that children's book")
    Suggested by   @kate81
  6. A carbon-based lifeform.
    Suggested by   @listbot
  7. Someone who is genuinely liked by his own family and who reciprocates the feeling.
    Which, to me, says a lot.
    Suggested by   @jannychan
  8. Incredibly smart and talented but kinda haunted? Don't know why!! I'm sorry! I've always had that feeling! 🙃
    Had to delete this and suggest again cause had a HUGE spelling mistake (in my defense I'm tired and English it's not my first language)

  9. A creative, independent, individual who enjoys the work he does, and appreciates his true friend's because he knows their hard to come by.

    seems like someone who's written for snl in the past. will one day write a play (unless u already have and i just wasn't informed lol) ((also one more thing is great))

  11. Someone who always has a million things going on at once; extremely protective and caring for your family; thick-skinned about most things, but overly-sensitive about certain things you probably keep to yourself.
    Suggested by   @mallofamanda
  12. A wordsmith
    Before you say "obviously", let me explain that "I take you for" a wordsmith, but also someone who loves being a wordsmith and gets excited when being a wordsmith. If that makes any sense at all.

  14. The best goddamn banjo player this band has ever had!
    Suggested by   @Gola
  15. Creative and humble and very very private
    Saw you perform in person at the UCB in LA in June 2013. You are the type of person who really studies and analyzes jokes and your audience. Your ideas seem to come organically and you don't immediately show them off but rather develop them over time. You seemed extremely private and a little people-pleasing since I saw visible panic when a story didn't work. At the same time, you were a little cocky with some of the ideas that probably worked in the past

  19. A guy who inadvertently reminds me that the price we pay for mobility is distance. I get my updates on what is going on second hand. And not just you of course. I wonder if this has an immigrant connection: 1st generation lives where their parents settled, in the basement of the same house or in the same neighbourhood. TBC...
    Suggested by   @Alphonse
  20. ....2nd generation grows up in the same neighbourhood but then goes away to school or for other reasons, perhaps settling in that other place. 3rd generation is totally mobile, so by now people are all spread out. And for more recent immigrants, it probably happens in a generation less.
    Suggested by   @Alphonse
  21. Um, I feel like you've got thick skin and an elastic heart. No, I'm just kidding. I think of you as a writer who seems to genuinely care about others and someone who's always looking for something different and original to make (i.e. "The Book with No Pictures", the creation of li.st).
    Suggested by   @sebastianbiondi
  22. I never met you so this is just a random guess... please don't be offended if I'm completely off.
    A very inelegant, sarcastic man with a distinct sense of humor not everyone necessarily gets. Probably somewhat introverted and of few words. Has a handful of friends to which you are EXTREMELY loyal. Oh, and adores kids. Also has a heart of gold and an immense amount of love to give but still waiting to meet her... which is frustrating.

  31. [UPDATED TO ADD: I am embarrassed to post so many of these that are so kind about me! But that is probably a good sign not about me, but about people. I encourage everyone to try this open list!]
  32. Intelligent, punctual, analytical, and disarming. Someone who has a fleshed out opinion on everything from Oxford commas to Yeezy season. Has a complicated relationship with Canter's Challah.

    In a past era your phone number would likely be unlisted though.

    that has gotten good at not actively introverting all the time and surrounds himself by people that either identify with or just appreciate introverts.

  42. I fee like you probably know what you want. Like, if you were at a bar with friends and felt like going home, you wouldn't be peer pressured into staying. But if you wanted to stay until 3 am you'd be able to peer pressure everyone else to stay 'til 3 am. Ya know?
