it is so hard to define ourself：（
One can offer a broader definition. One might say for example:
"Hello. I am Han and I major in Chemical Engineering at the University of _________;
but my hobby is Chess and I also like to research ancient languages."
"Hello. My name is Han, and I have a degree in Journalism from _________ University
but I am also interested in Photography."
My difficulty was that I was also so "abstract" about this. I wanted to answer like this:
"Hello. I'm Bruce. I am Flesh and Spirit. I learn as much as I can about everything I can."
That may be genuine, but the idea with an introduction is to enlist the aid of all the people
we meet in our world. Goal and goal direction has the single purpose to tell people what you really want to do and what your current status is. It always refers to what you are doing.
If I had a part time job washing cars, I would tell that as my "part time job" but also
tell people that I dreamed of learning everything I can about philosophy. This is how people know of some way to help you. One of the great secrets of life, is that just about everything we get, comes from other people. Information, understanding, Knowledge: all of these come from people who do what they can to help us. That is how it works.
The commone convention is to define yourself by your employment, career, or your status as a student. For example, if you work as a hotel desk clerk, you will say:
I am Han and I am a receptionist. If you were an artist, you would say; "I am Han and I am an artist"
This is sometimes awkward for some people, who find this a limiting way of defining self.
The general feeling is that; "I might DO this, but it is not WHO or WHAT I am." Still, this is the common means of self-definition. Many here, for example, are college students. Thus, they might say; "I am Han, and I am a student. I major in Mathematics at the University of ________."
It depends on the circumstances and why I am introducing myself to that person.I am open,easy to talk to , a little adventurous and sometimes too talkative ;-)
