IT People Are A Breed Apart
Yep folks, it's official: techies are a breed apart. According to new research by Intermedia.NET, IT staff are twice as likely as other staff members to wear a heavy metal T-shirt and carry a Maglite and a Leatherman. They are also 34% more likely to wear a ponytail, 63% more likely to wear black jeans; and 32% less likely to wear clean clothes every day.
Our research provides an interesting insight into the life of IT people,” said Rurik Bradbury, VP marketing for Intermedia.NET. “Our large Microsoft Gold Certified team of engineers was comforted that IT people are twice as likely to wear Megadeth and similar t-shirts, and that black jeans and ponytails are still hot items. However, they were distraught to find that the cellphone belt clip has gone ‘mainstream’ and lost its identification with the IT subculture.
