You Know You’re A Graphic Designer When… (Version 1.5 [Greek letter])

Never uses type larger than 10 points or a point size that people can actually read
You’ve almost rear-ended the car in front of you because you were analyzing a font on a billboard.
You get pissed when a free Photoshop brush you download is less than 1000px in size.
You can use keyboard shortcuts at light speed, blindfolded, but you can’t type a paragraph of text without staring at the keyboard.
You consider meals interruptions.
You’ve learned your lesson and stopped using the word “final” in any file name when saving.
You clean your keyboard more often than you wash your car.
You’ve intentionally given up trying to explain your projects to non-designers.
You see CMYK and RGB like Neo sees the Matrix.
You’d rather organize your desktop than your sock drawer.
When you look at Album art all you see are grunge Photoshop Brushes. (Then you see the album art a couple minutes later)
You’ve actually $paid for a font.
You’ve totally slaughtered a great design concept because the client thinks he/she knows best. (everyone thinks they are a designer)
You’ve kept a ragged concert ticket just so you could scan it.
You bookmark a resource more often than you have a fun night out on the town.
You can’t go to a restaurant without secretly critiquing the menu design.
You have an amazingly huge font collection, and an amazingly short temper.
If you had a penny for every mouse click, you would have been a trillionaire 3 years ago.

Just found those at The HowDesign Forums. Well, one of the links in that thread points to one of my blog posts, so I thought I’d link to it. Why not?
