50 Graphic Designer Stereotypes

Got this from lamefork. I’m going to bold things I feel apply are true to summarize if the stereotype applies to myself, plus some additional opinion from my point of view.

1. They are very weird people. (very. how on earth would you think creative if you're just mainstream, like any other human in this planet yo?)
2. There are billions of them in the world, like colors on the screen of your computer. (kind of true, but creative ones? i don't think so.)
3. They will analyse conversations in layers.
4. You will spend the day assembling furniture from IKEA.
5. They drink and eat all kinds of weird shit just because they like the packaging. (cause that's the first reason we bought it anyway.)
6. They hate each other. (???????no we respect each other. but yea if they copy then DIE DIE DIE.)
7. You’ll come out the last out of the movies because you have to see the full list of credits. (this is so true and it's kind of annoying when my friends or bae is rushing out quickly because bitch i need to see the credits!)
8. They can’t change a light bulb without making a sketch. (lol what kind of stereotypes is this!!!!)
9. They fuck up all the tables with their cutters. (because dis true imma make it large text.)
10. They rather study the paisley pattern on your outfit than listen to what you have to say. (cause nothing is more interesting than someone's T-shirt design, am i right)
11. They will fill your house with magazines and whatever is out there that has drawings.
12. You never know if it is really an original or a copy.
13. They make collages with your photos. (not all designers like collages :/ more like VSCOCAM)
14. They do not know how to add and subtract, they just understand letters.
15. They idolize people who nobody knows and speak of them as if they were his colleagues.
16. They take pictures almost daily and all are cut in weird shapes.
17. They ask your opinion about everything but they do whatever they want.
18. Everything is left justified, right or center unless they arrive late.
19. They hate Comic Sans with the same passion they love Helvetica.
20. They use iPhone for everything, because everyone has one.
21. You can not decorate the house without consulting them.
22. They steal street signs.
23. Always seem to have their hands painted with something.
24. They buy dolls unfinished for them to paint.
25. Everything becomes something other than what it really is: cards as tickets, cards as …
26. When arguing, you will be nicknamed like the OSX spinning wheel (not affectionately)
27. Do not know how to dress without consulting the Pantone book.
28. They hate Excel. (deeply.)
29. They read comics. (and mangas, too!)
30. They want to save the world only with a poster. (lol)
31. You will spend the day brainstorming.
32. On vacation they will take you to countries that you do not know exist and have no beach.
33. Museums are their second home.
34. They know more positions than the Kamasutra.
35. They can’t go to a restaurant without secretly critiquing the menu design. (its like... if you dont have a good design for your menu design then BYE)
36. They listen to music you have never heard of.
37. They can´t cook a normal dish, they always have to experiment with new ingredients.
38. They read rare books: stories of children, Semiotics …
39. When you are going to tell them something, everyone has read it in their facebook and twitter.
40. They owned iPods before you knew they existed.
41. The orgasm they remember is when they heard that Adobe was acquiring Macromedia.
42. They have their own shops just for them and there are the most expensive in the city.
43. They want to spend all the money in the Apple Store. (for me:Google PlaY sTORE :C)
44. You will never understand their gifts.
45. They see ordinary objects and laugh.
46. You wake up in the middle of the night hearim them screaming “When is the deadline?”
47. They see CMYK and RGB like Neo sees the Matrix.
48. They dream of the day nobody will make a single change to their designs.
49. They rather pay for a font than for a special birthday gift.
50. They are always sleepy because they work 24/7. (needless to say this; everyone is tired 24/7, but exceptionally VERY tired for the designers. Because even though you're not working in front of computer, you're still brainstorming.)

This is just for fun, like lamefork says on his blog, this stereotypes does not apply to anyone. So, no hatin'.
