I enjoy exploring things that are not tied with each other together.

I want to express that I like taking things that are completely different from the first glance and finding abstract laws for explaining them in general. Maybe from the standpoint that's completely different from the one widely used presently.

This sentence is in the context of explaining my personality to an acquaintance. So it's better off making it more informal.

    What's an "equenty"? – Catija Apr 26 '16 at 15:22
  • If you have a specific concern with this question, we can help you with that but we are not here for proofreading or to write content for you. Is your sentence understandable, yes... is it written correctly, not really... could it be written better, certainly... but there are dozens of ways to rewrite this sentence and it depends on your personal writing style. – Catija Apr 26 '16 at 15:27

    @Catija I think this is a request for an expression, not proof-reading. I know it's worded as a "is this is correct?" type question, but there's quite a bit of explanation of what he is trying to express, and it's not easy to find an expression like that in a dictionary. – ColleenV parted ways Apr 26 '16 at 16:05

    @Catija When it comes to word and phrase requests, there isn't one right answer, but there are good subjective questions that are on-topic. There are plenty of highly rated questions in the phrase-request tag with 5 or more answers. Just because there are a lot of answers folks could suggest doesn't mean this is an unanswerable question. – ColleenV parted ways Apr 26 '16 at 16:52

    Acquaintances? These are generally people you know but are not particularly close friends with. – Catija Apr 27 '16 at 14:53

"I enjoy exploring things that are seemingly disparate in nature."

I think this captures the essence of what you want, but I would follow it up with examples.

"I enjoy exploring things that are seemingly disparate in nature. Such as chemistry and French cooking."

  • Disparate was my best answer after thinking for about 500ms, too. – CynicallyNaive Apr 26 '16 at 18:34

I enjoy exploring things that are not tied with each other together.

This sentence might be improved by rephrasing it as StoneyB has in his comment:

"I enjoy exploring the links between things that don't seem to be related." -StoneyB


I enjoy finding hidden connections in unexpected places.
