” I’m a multi disciplinary renaissance type of personality who identify myself as an “integral” person, meaning for example I like and think I’m good at multi-perspective thinking (for example to see things from others perspective than my own concerning demographics as age, gender, interests and so on).
The background that led to this includes a broad range of experiences/competences; from metaphysical, intuitive, creative stuff as art, design, music, interest in science, psychology, visionary thinking and philosophy to physical action event oriented stuff as in my teens driving motocross and nowadays a mountain-bike enthusiast (some of those adventure’s at Instagram @ulrikclaesson). :-)”
