  • Something to tell the world!

    My name is Marinus I'm Dutch and I haven't been here in a while. I like to learn more about cultures instead of language. For now Dutch and English are fine. I really like to align my life with personal development. Message me if you want to get to know more.

  • My proudest accomplishments

    Always being able to find a solution, whatever it takes.

  • My interests in other cultures

    I like to broaden my perspective on all things related to our human experience.

  • I'm an expert at...

    thinking about life questions and figuring out how I myself, people and the world function the way they do.

  • Living abroad for one year

    I lived in Belgium for 4 years.

  • 10 years from now

    A life coach with his own practice and an advanced personal development practitioner.

    This was the plan, however I discovered that my talents are better suited for something else instead. I still have to figure out what exactly.

  • Something uncommon about me

    I'm a weirdo who likes to talk about a lot of things, even disturbing things which isn't most people's cup of tea.

    For someone who isn't social I do have great friendships with people I can trust.

  • A personal challenge

    I honestly have trouble with opening up to people emotionally. I'm often perceived as a robot with no feelings, but on the contrary I do feel those very deeply. To me this is a real challenge, because people have difficulties reading me. This often leads to acting in a way that people perceive as selfish while I never have bad intentions against anyone. For the people who know about MBTI my type would be INTJ.

  • I wish people knew more about...

    That I have a lot of value to offer friendship & relationship. This world is all about the appearance, the first impression and conforming to the society in a way that is desirable for the majority. I'm not that kind of person, my fruits aren't directly for the picking, instead they take a bit longer to become ripe.

  • Childhood pleasures

    My childhood was quite good. I loved to create fantasy adventures with my friends outside in forests, making headquarters in trees and fighting each other like knights. Whenever I was alone, which was mostly the case, I played a lot with LEGO. Hours and hours were spent on creating my own narratives, buildings, etc.

  • My opinion on human nature

    I look at people like a scientist. People are animals and because of that have impulses and tendencies that are out of our conscious control. Often I get the impressions that we believe to be better than other creatures which I don't agree with. My wish for humanity is that we all become more aware as a global entity.

  • I always enjoy talking about...

    Humans, psychology, philosophies, existence, films, fantasy, hypothetical situation, mental frameworks, etc.
