  1. Reading listicles.
  2. Worshipping at the altar of Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, etc.
  3. Reposting listicles with captions like "#growthhacking #futurist"
  4. Reading
  5. Unironically calling yourself a futurist. (if you are alive, you're a futurist - at least if you plan on being alive in the future)
  6. Succumbing to constant tech-hype (SELF DRIVING CARS GUYS).

You are not going to be Steve Jobs. I can already tell you that. Do you know why I'm so sure?

The Technology-as-a-Religion Zealot

The Tech Zealot would have been extremely religious in another life. Brought into a world where religion is rapidly losing relevance and stature, the Tech Zealot disdains God and those who blindly follow him.

Instead, the Tech Zealot believes in the future. Everything's better in the future because of AI. Artificial Intelligence is just around the corner guys! All inequality will soon be solved!

The term Machine Learning literally gives this person a hard on. They can't help it.
