Satellite Head - Trying on Technology

When it comes to technology, each of us has our own style. Some people have to have the newest items as soon as they come out, while others will wait until the price drops considerably. Then there are those who don’t even realize when something new comes out.

Each of these different types of people correlates to a distinct technology style. Not only does this style show how you tend to make choices, but it reveals things about you as an individual.

So what is your technology style, and what does it say about you?

Gotta Have it Now

Do you geek out over gadgets? When the latest and greatest gadget comes out, are you one of the first in line to purchase it? Are you one the one who raves about your technology to your friends and family?

If so, you are an early adopter. You delight in trying new things and learning about new technologies.

What it Says About You

You aren’t afraid to take risks and try new things. You enjoy testing new items to find their limitations, and often you are creative about how and where you apply technology in your life. You can be impulsive when it comes to buying technology.

Let’s Wait it Out

Do you tend to watch new technology from afar, waiting until it’s been on the market for a while before you purchase?

If so, you are a watcher. You like to wait and make sure a product is well tested, and / or budget-able before you buy.

What it Says About You

You are level headed, and avoid impulse buys. While you enjoy the fun of new technology, you know that the market is always changing, and ideas don’t always last. Instead, you wait until items are thoroughly tested and are finally affordable. You tend to be budget conscious.

Technology, What Technology?

Do you only adopt new technology after everyone else has? Are you often the last to know about new technology?

If so, you are a late adopter. You tend to prefer your old standby that you knew how to use, compared to a new-fangled item with too many buttons and options that leaves your head spinning.

What it Says About You

You are either uninterested in technology, or are afraid of it. You may be resistant to change, or closed to new ideas. You may have a “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality.

Hopefully your technology style gives you some insight into why you are the way you are with your technology.
