    Default you know youre a DJ when....

    youre reminded of mixing while you try to keep the speedo exactly on the sped limit (beatmatching. think of the pedal as the pitch fader, the needle as deck b and the speed limit as deck a)

    post your own

    You know you're a DJ when you're thinking of tracks to beatmatch to the ticking of the clock when you can't sleep.

    I'm guilty of this one.

    You know you're a dj when you start doing eq sweeps on your car stereo to add dramatic effects and builds to the songs on the radio.

    When you can guess a song by the first bar of its intro (even if it's just a drum beat).
