We've put together some easy to recognise symptoms of NOT being a DJ so you can easily identify if you or any of your loved have come down with the DJing disease.
Look to the left of you. Now look to your right. Who is sitting there? Is it a friend? A colleague? Your pet cat? Your mother? Pretty standard, so why give these people a second thought?

We've put together some easy to recognise symptoms of not being a DJ so you can easily identify if you or any of your loved have come down with the DJing disease.
1 - Every year you don't get overly emotional when DJ Mag's Top 100 poll is released; furiously ranting about it being a popularity contest seems futile.
2 - When you go to a party you generally covort, dance and have fun. You will not find yourself standing, staring and analysing the DJ playing's every move, commenting on the mix.
3 - People do not roll there eyes when you mention your profession.
5 - You actually have a profession.
5 - You like music with words in it.
6 - You never describe yourself as "making a name for yourself," you've always had a name and it's probably Mohamed.
7 - When you go out, people don't clap behind you for pressing buttons.
8 - You're perfectly happy smiling for a photo
9 - You can beatmatch. Anyone can beatmatch.
10 - If someone asks you to pass the pen, you pass the pen, if someone asks you to close the door, you close the door - generally speaking, you take requests.
