George hasn't completed a profile. Should we look for some other people?

Strange questions that humans have not yet found an answer for!
As stated before, the gender of a person is determined by chromosomes randomly before birth. This is the basis of biological gender, which gives people the usual feelings, desires, and attributes associated with their gender (males tend to be more aggressive because of higher levels of testosterone while women enjoy bonding with others more because of higher levels of a neurotransmitter known as oxytocin). So biology mostly determines the physical and mental attributes associated with gender. However, environment probably also plays a role. I think people's perception of their gender is modified by the way others see them, relating to the concept of "the looking glass self." Maybe for example, men who excel at sports and can easily attract females will see themselves as very masculine while more shy men might have a lesser feeling of being masculine, but this is only a slight modification of their actual gender. I don't think very many people can be convinced that they are of the opposite gender from their interactions with other people, it doesn't seem likely to me. Also, some people might have hormonal imbalances which cause them to act differently for their gender. I think gender is a conglomerate of multiple factors, but is mostly determined by genetics. But you never know!

What is the Perfect Person?
One of the main points of perfection is completion and I don't think it's possible for people to be complete, and subsequently perfect, on their own because humans were meant to connect with one another and form groups. Moving forward from this, I think the more people as a whole can commune together as a single unit, the more perfect we become. Individual people are like individual pixels making up a digital picture, which become complete when they come together to form a unified picture.

Are there any teens on this site?
I think if you are genuinely interested in knowledge and mental growth than you will unconsciously attract people and situations that complement your personality and temperament. However, in the event that someone really doesn't have many "outlets" for their mind or people to share their ideas with, they can look forward to attending college where people tend to attract others like themselves and then if you really are an intellectual, you will likely meet other like minded people.

Are there any teens on this site?
I'm 18 and I was originally attracted to this website after watching a category of TED videos called "Smart Laughs" on Netflix. I greatly enjoyed it and valued the witty humor while at the same time learning something new. To respond to your question: What is it that you hope to accomplish by coming to such a site? I would say it's to grow my mind by listening to smart people sharing their knowledge, creative insights, and point of view. I'm hoping to get my mind in "motion," which means occupying my head with REAL world problems and not insignificant teenage drama. I believe that many teenagers have a greater mental and creative capacity than that which they are given credit for and I think that to channel this into something fairly useless in the long run (social networking) is a huge waste of human potential. TED is basically an inspiration to go into the world and invent some ingenious ideas of my own :)
