What is Iiridayn?

Michael Clark


Michael Clark is an experienced LAMP (PHP) software engineer. Hobbies include security, fantasy, anime, and games. He plans to continue in school to get a Doctorate in Information Science.



Iiridayn is a programmer and social gamer - not a lone wolf. I use Iiridayn as my identity on the Internet primarily when I wish to interact with others.

Other Accounts

Ged Crimsonclaw

Ged - originally named from "A Wizard of Earthsea" - is a large, scaly, black (off-green), fire breathing dragon. When I play as Ged, I fight to win. Ged was my first online identity, used for an AckMUD, "Shades of Evil".

Other Accounts


Yevuard - name taken from same series as Ged - is a scientist and magic researcher. He is older and wiser than Ged, his brother. I use Yevuard more for scholarly persuits and draconic interests.

Collections/curation accounts



I like to joke that I "fail" personality tests, as I often don't show strong leanings in any given direction. Still, I have observed a few trends which might be helpful in anticipating future behavior.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assesment (popular) usually pegs me as INTP. Of note, the only category I score strongly in is Introversion; the others I "fail" to demonstrate strong leanings and may fall either way. The Hartman Personality Profile was the first I recall "failing" (around 9-10 years old) - my score landed me almost dead center, on the Blue/White side - I think favoring Blue. I've been told by at least two people that they see me as clearly Red. Tests taken 3 Nov 2014 put me as INFP and White.

The Big Five seem to be moderately well recieved, so I'll estimate scores for each:

Very high.
Slightly high - I am dutiful, loyal, and precise in work and commitments, but am not great with scheduling or tidyness.
Very low.
Debatably high. I don't get along with everyone. I often let ideals trump personalities.
Neuroticism/Emotional Stability
Moderately low.

Some useful notes for anticipating my actions:


Most of my interests appear to focus around Information science.


Since I am between jobs while working with a sleep doctor I suppose most of my time qualifies as hobbies lately.
