Picking up from Gianni's thread "The Doctor is IN", where certain "habits" were assumed to be linked to the person's star sign...
I thought I'd run a quick poll about astrology signs - just curious whether traits typically associated with a horoscope sign do come up with some sort of pattern among translators.
But quick polls can have a max of 8 answers, and the signs are 12. So here's a minipoll-thread insteadicon_smile.gif

I'd ask you to state your star sign in the subject title, so that manual counting will be easier to handle.
Considering that tech and non-tech translators possibly have different traits, the subject title should also say "tech" or "non-tech".
(ok, I realize tech/non-tech is pretty vague, but just to keep it simple...)

Feel free to add of course any comment about specific traits in your post.

I'd also like to stress that this comes just out of light-hearted curiosity, and should be treated as such!icon_smile.gif

Scorpio - mostly non-tech Feb 6, 2006

Recently I was asked what's my sign and when I said "the notorious one", I just got the "ah, Scorpio, then" response.

Any bad experiences with Scorpios, anyone?icon_smile.gif

Depending on your definition of tech, this may tilt to 70/30 or 40/60....
