You have now pressed the "About Me" button to know more about who I am.
Philosophically, the highest truth about who I am, may be said in a very short
Nothing more, nothing less than simply: I am. I exist.
while this is in fact a surprisingly high and deep philosophical
truth, it was probably neither what you were expecting, nor what you
wanted. So to accommodate your expectations, in the following, I
will share with you some 'worldly' facts about me and try to offer
you a quick 'taste' of my personality.
Well, let us start off
with some basicsâ€¦
Background and Facts about Soren
Sex: I am a man.
- Land of origin: I am a Viking from
Northern Europe - the same country as the existentialist author
Soren Kierkegaard and master storyteller Hans Christian
Andersen. The place where Shakespeare's play 'Hamlet' takes
place: The Kingdom of Denmark.
- Names and implied character: My name
Soren is quite common in Denmark. I'm not too fond of the
meaning of my name because Soren (Severin in Latin) means
'serious' and 'severe' which to me isn't very attractive.
Neither is it very descriptive of my character.
- Education and 'pro-titles': I have a
background in economy and organizational theory (an MBA). This
choice was made a loooong time ago when 'that was what you were
expected to do' â€“ meet society's expectations and follow the
perceived job opportunities and the money.
- Professions and interests: I have a
'work' background as an employee in various companies but
working for someone else, meeting someone else's goals and being
told what to do was not satisfying for me. I ended up with a
series of questions about my identity and purpose of life.
Naturally being interested in existential questions about life
and our place within it, I dived into areas of personal
Well so far so good. The formal stuff aside, we may talk a little
more about ...
My Personality Trait: Fun Loving Adventurer
If you know the personality system, the Enneagram, it will mean
something to you when I say that I have an ego of the type 7. If you
don't know the Enneagram, then let me tell you a bit about what
characterizes ego-type 7 and therefore me:
First of all I am
a fun loving adventurer. I am highly curious and love new ideas and
experiences. This love of 'the new' makes me quite visionary and I
play with lots of possibilities and concepts ... plus I daydream
about all the lovely things that I think the future holds. I tend to
start lots and lots of projects because I love to switch focus and
don't want to be bored. Having fun is important to me.
so far, this sounds pretty nice, doesn't it? But there is a
backside: there are simply not enough hours in the day to do all the
projects, and sometimes when I start new projects it's simply
because I'm running away from old, 'boring' ones that I can't be
bothered to finish - as you may imagine, this is not always very
practical. This is a constant challenge for me.
Soren, the Calm Consciousness Raiser
- By nature I am very socially acute, I very easily pick
up how people are, what they want, and what I must do to help
- I have a very calming and soothing effect on people â€“ my
warm and accepting presence elevate people's self esteem and
simply gives them peace. Also, the relatively high level of
consciousness that is now his everyday state of being makes me
highly intuitive; plus, my state of consciousness seems to rub
off on the people I come in contact with. This is especially
useful in my work as a coach and a guide in consciousness - it
makes my work so much easier. If you like, you can check out my
growing English website at
- For many years I travelled extensively all over the
world, but after having been through a powerful process of
personal development and discovered the endless possibilities of
consciousness, my love of new experiences tends towards inner
experiences rather than outside ones.
Even before getting
to know the Enneagram, I discovered that the antidote to my
ego's frenetic search for what's new is to immerse myself deeply
in one or few subject at a time.
Consequently, I have
come to love researching and being nerdy. I can sit for hours on
end in my comfortable, well-worn armchair and explore higher
levels of consciousness while researching some topic that has
caught my interest. I have even taught myself to type while
being in these mental states and the 'Notes from Life Itself to
You' [LINK] are one of the things I create this way.
- I have written and published a number of books, both
fiction (novels) and non-fiction in both English and
Danish. (Most of my novels in Danish have yet to be
translated into English).
The Birth of Quotescoop.com
Loving to play with lots of projects and having a deep
philosophical view on life I thought 'why not try and do an
Internet site?' And since quotes are one of the ways that deep
truth can be stated quickly and with a smile, and since jokes
and other short funny stuff is a love I have, I though, hey,
But I wanted to share
my fun with as many other people as possible, so I wanted
YOU to be able to provide input as well. This was very
important to me.
Also, I wanted to do a better job
than ALL of my competitors. I wanted to present my quotes
and stuff in a way that's UNIQUE. Not simply easily
accessible, but also sorted in ways that you absolutely do
not se anywhere else ... Ways that are not only very
entertaining but which also reflect my own philosophical
take on life, the universe and everything! In time you
will see what I mean. :-)
