Top Signs You Might Be The Office Geek

Written by on July 16, 2020

If you love spreadsheets, own highlighters in three colours or get enjoyment from labelling things, you might be the office geek.

Researchers polled 2,000 office staff and found half consider themselves to be someone who takes pride in their geek status at work.

Other indicators include loving a pen that writes well, having a Pinterest board dedicated to stationery and owning a desk tidy.

Getting the hump when other staff use your desk is a sign too, along with never chewing your pens and possessing blue, black AND red pens.

Commissioned by Lyreco, the research found that 84 per cent of self-confessed office geeks are even proud to be the office geek.
