  1. You find it difficult to explain things without PowerPoint.
  2. The Monday morning flight attendants know you better than your neighbors.
  3. You tried to raise a plant at home and it died.
  4. You constantly use words that don’t really exist.
  5. You regularly divulge sensitive client information with your family and friends.  Who cares?  They won’t understand you anyway.
  6. You write and send emails more efficiently on your blackberry rather than your laptop.
  7. Everything seems to fit into either a two by two matrix or a decision tree.
  8. You get heart palpitations when you lose your internet connection.
  9. When Dominos comes with your pizza order, you time and evaluate the “deliverable.”
  10. You consider yourself a subject matter expert after reading a two page article in Business Week.
