I am Master's engineering student from Germany who often writes too much text in his profiles.
Likes/Does: Cooking, traveling, (cooking while traveling is one of the great luxuries that airbnb offers!), music & movies, biking, new things (like ideas), old things (like some habits), introspection, being too specific.
Can: speak english and get along with people quite well.
Airbnb tells me to write about my favourite books, movies, shows, music, food... but I don't like writing resumes and I don't think these things really describe a person that well. For the purpose of leaving a good impression, talking to people is usually much easier. : )
