[[/folder]]

[[folder:This Troper dislikes the following things]]
* WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma and its {{Subtrope}}s: RougeAnglesOfSatin, NoPunctuationPeriod and HowDoIUsedTense.
* {{Obstructive Bureaucrat}}s.
* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory (excessive symbolism counts, too).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tropes that that guy, desdendelle, thinks he's an example of]]
* [[UsefulNotes/{{Agnosticism}} Agnostic]]: of the 'weak agnostic atheist' variation. It basically means the following:
# I don't know whether God(s) exist, or not.
# I tend to think[[note]] and assume, due to my philosophy[[/note]] that no such being exists.
# I think that it is possible to know whether God(s) exist, unless it's proven otherwise.
* [[CharacterAlignment Alignment Tropes]]: TrueNeutral with heavy shades of LawfulGood.
* AltumVidetur: Oh so very much. Also with English, since it isn't my mother tongue.
* BileFascination: That's why I became [[WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum PPCer]] and continue to read badfic.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Kind of given, since my moral code is an odd mix of Stoicism, Kantian imperatives, and Cartesian epistemology. Despite my LawfulGood tendencies.
* {{Bookworm}}: Yep! Gimme those books, gimme!
* BrilliantButLazy: I am gifted (135+ IQ), but incredibly lazy.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: I can't drink more than half a pint of Guinness, and Saké makes me tipsy.
* CaptainObvious: Obviously (and annoyingly, to my RL friends) enough.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: I kinda tend to miss the obvious sometimes.
* {{Crossplayer}}: I have more female avatars than male ones. My favourite Warframe is [[Characters/WarframeTenno Banshee]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Who isn't?
* EncyclopaedicKnowledge: Due to {{Bookworm}}ness.
* FoodTropes:
** BrainFreeze: Happens often.
** [[ComfortFood Comfort Drink]]: Good Earl Grey tea.
** [[DoesNotLikeSpam Does Not Like Coriander]]: Or parsley.
** DrinkOrder: Tea. To the point where it became a running gag among my friends.
** EverythingsBetterWithBacon
* GlassesPull: {{Subverted|Trope}}. I sometimes take my glasses off before (or after) I speak, but it has no meaning whatsoever.
* GoodCannotComprehendEvil: Sort of; I really can't understand what motivates people to be malicious (insert standard "too many premises" disclaimer here).
* GrammarPolice: I'm a stickler for correct [=SPaG=].
* [[HatesEveryoneEqually Hates Every Organised Religion Equally]]: More or less.
* HonestyIsTheBestPolicy: I fully believe in this.
* HypeAversion: [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Ponies]].
* IconicItem: A [[Series/DoctorWho Tenth Doctor-ish]] BadassLongcoat.
* {{Nerd}}
** GeekPhysiques: Of the thin, muscle-less variety.
** ProudToBeANerd: Because I am what am and I don't plan on changing because others don't understand that.
* NinjaEditor: If I spot a typo in my posts, I usually go back and fix it as soon as I see it.
* NonActionGuy: And how. Reading is better than doing stuff!
* NotAMorningPerson: Earliest I'll wake up naturally is circa 1100 hours, and while I do have to wake up early sometimes because army, I still hate it.
%%* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Subverted in the past; while I was a high-school student, I wasn't really ordinary (philosophising, ho!).
* SawStarWarsTwentySevenTimes: I have a tendency to recycle books, movies and the like.
* SophisticatedAsHell: Even more evident when I speak Hebrew.
* TheEnneagram: A Four. Apparently.
* ThePhilosopher: Cartesian Stoicism FTW!
* TheSouthpaw: Mostly.
* TheStoic: Literally.
** NotSoStoic: But not perfectly.
* TheQuietOne: Until the ice breaks, that is, and sometimes even after that; if I have nothing to say I will shut up.
* [[AdjustingYourGlasses Type 2/type 3 Glasses Adjuster.]]
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Something British, people assure me.
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: Another bad habit I'm trying to get rid of.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Take my word on it. People tend to think that I'm ten years older than my true age, probably because of the goatee and coat.
