This study analyzed the distinctive categories used in describing oneself, self- introduction, written in English by the second-semester students of non-English Department, namely Agriculture in Indonesian. They are found to be categorized as 1) name; 2) hometown; 3) character and physical appearance; 4) preference (favourite food, beverages or activity); 5) age; and 6) academic information. From the data, there are three typical categories, namely, name, preferences, and hometown, which are mostly stated by the students. The students tended to mention their unseen aspects rather than their physical appearance, which are more important and easier to be noticed. Additionally, most of the students thought that mentioning a job as a student was not matter. Keywords: writing, self-introduction, non-English department students, unseen aspect
