About me in three words

For a long time I described myself as unparalleled, unpredictable and unassuming. I had filled all my online bios with just these three words. They still apply to me but I stopped using these adjectives for no clear reason.

Later I learned that using adjectives is a terrible way to describe oneself. While I think there is merit in “show, don’t tell” idea, adjectives are the only way I can express myself in minimal possible words.

Unparalleled, not because I am special but because I am unique. This spared me lot of “me too” comparisons.

I hate to fit into stereotypes. So I choose to be positively unpredictable.

Until such time I know everything, I better be unassuming.

Which three adjectives describe you?
