You are highly addicted to caffeineWell, a lot of people are addicted to caffeine and it doesn’t really make you a techie. But it is a good thing to start with because all the techies are caffeine addicts (at least most of them are). So whether you are working or not working, on your computer or off your computer, on the phone or off the phone, you always have a coffee mug in your hand.
The only physical thing you get to do is Geo-caching
A techie doesn’t really care whether he is getting any physical workout or not. All he cares about how his fingers are getting exercised over the keyboard. If the only outdoor thing for you is Geo-caching and no other workouts are the part of your life, you might well be a techie. A piece of advice though; some physical exercise other than geo-caching might actually be helpful.
You have multiple email addresses
Most people can’t even manage one email address properly. However, you are so skilled that you are able to efficiently manage five to six email addresses. Managing multiple email addresses requires some skills and not everyone can do it. It takes a lot of doing. But for a techie that you are, it is a simple thing. Well, if you have multiple email addresses, you are quite likely a techie.
