I was reading the about me page on an author of a poker strategy website and on one of the passages he describes himself as a pretty cool guy:
This is the page where you get to read a little more about me and subsequently find out that the guy behind such a sophisticated Texas Hold em website is actually really cool.
I looked up the meaning of cool and it seems like when it's used to describe a person, its meaning is negative. From OALD cool used with persons means:
- not friendly, interested or enthusiastic
- calm and confident in a way that lacks respect for other people, but makes people admire you as well as disapprove
So what does he mean when he describes himself as "cool"?
