12 Tech Behaviors: What They Really Say About You

"I'm on a half-dozen or more social network sites every day."This says: You're determined and ambitious. You gain rewards by building a lifetime of valuable connections. On the troublesome side, however, you may spread yourself too thin.
Our behaviors essentially define who we are. How we choose to conduct ourselves when it comes to interacting with technology speaks volumes about who we are and where our priorities lie. Are you a classic early adopter or a technology Luddite? Are you constantly texting away on a tiny mobile gadget, or do you look to unplug as often as possible? Do you use technology as a way to connect with others, or as a shield to avoid real human interaction? To find out more about what these and many other tech traits communicate to others about who you really are, CIO Insight consulted with Melody Brooke, a Richardson, Texas-based licensed counselor to professionals. The author of the book "Oh Wow, This Changes Everything" (Changes Press/Available now), Brooke is also host of the radio program, Wake Up Call. We asked Brooke to come up with a dozen "tech behaviors," and interpret for us what they say about who we are - not only in our personal lives, but in our professional lives as well.
