Well, your family, friends & near ones have to just bear with you... here are some side effects of being
You tend to be polite, humble & complacent, although you may act with ego certain times, probably because the social situation dictates, you know that you are insignificant in this vast universe, just a tiny spec of dust on this pale blue dot & you may go out of existence anytime
You keep networking with people who are exactly similar to you.
One of your worst nightmares is loosing all your data, so you take back up of your backup.. Ufff it has to stop at some level.
You tend to imagine living with your imaginary girlfriend.
Your family keeps asking you to loose weight, you just throw all such suggestions out of window, & you are happy to be on the couch.
You tend to keep away from people who are in leadership roles, probably fear that they may control you.
You strive for perfection, making lives of other miserable sometimes, sometimes developing OCD's - Obsessive Compulsive disorder.
You tend to dislike discussing about facts & figures, you like to brainstorm on bigger ideas, solve bigger problems.
