Are you a standards geek?

Are you a standards geek?

9 signs that you, or your friends, may be standards geeks. How many can you relate to?

1. Your friends have heard you say way too many times: “did you know there is a standard for that?!”
2. You find yourself speaking in numbers.  
3. People look at you oddly, when unable to resist, you ask what standards they are using.
4. You believe the world would be a much better place if everyone used standards. 
5. You have a million ideas for new standards that you are convinced the world needs. 
6. You know what TC stands for, and can distinguish between a CD and a DIS.  
7. You get excited by news that a new edition of ISO 9001 is coming up. 
8. You feel the urge to explain the importance of standards to anyone that stares at you with vacant eyes when you say you work with standards.  
9. You actually have a favourite standard. 

If you are a standards geek and are proud of it, please help us add more examples to this list!
