I'm a very social person. I typically go out and see friends four or
more times a week.

None of my friends with few exceptions know anything about what I
do. My parents do not understand my work. No significant other I've
had has understood my work. I don't discuss it with them.

Furthermore, most of the people I work with do not know anything about
my personal life.
