Analytical Sophisticate

Today I'm putting my own spin on this week's Spin Assignment: It's all about ME!

I do not remember when I started describing myself as an Analytical Sophisticate— but that is one of the phrases I use to describe myself simply. I have the tendency to make up small phrases that take on profound meaning to me when I look at it closer. Being that this phrase is only two words long one would think that the definition would be pretty straightforward. It couldn't be further from the truth.

Analytical
I consider myself to be quite analytical in nature. I like to see "how things work". In this way I am constantly trying to look at things differently. I pride myself in the fact that I can see the big picture as well as focus on the details in things. I tend to concentrate more on principles and concepts of processes rather than the facts or specifics of a certain thing.
Part of analysing is conveying what you analyze to others so they can analyze it as well. Being an educator I am trained in being able to teach those things I know to others. Being able to describe what you see to others is very important to me. I strive to be simple in my descriptions so that you are not lost in my words. I do not say what I say to impress you— though there are times I feel I am being a bit lofty.
Sophisticate
At first I took this term as more of being sophisticated than anything else. I feel that I have a class about me. I like to think that I am intelligent and can behave in that manner. I also feel that I am old fashioned and a bit of a romantic at heart.
Being that I tend to make up or misuse words— I felt that I should look up sophisticate just to make sure that I am using the term correctly. What I found added new dimension to the whole phrase.
I discovered that there is a second meaning to the word sophisticate— being worldly. I know that I like to be open minded and enjoy seeing how other people see things. I believe that I incorporate those things that normally would not be mainstream into the way I view the world. In this way I am very accepting of other cultures as well as other people's viewpoints.

I consider myself to be an analytical sophisticate. This is what I am and this is the essence of my being. A lot of what I do and say stems from this phrase, so simply put: "I am an Analytical Sophisticate".
