Signs you're a bohemian.

Are you a bohemian? You might not wear the flashy clothes and wear bracelets up to your elbows, but deep in your soul there might be a bohemian just waiting to be set free.

Below are nine classic traits of modern bohemians; check them out and I bet you'll discover that you're a bohemian too!

You hate following rules and being told what to do.

Bohemians are rebellious by nature and being bossed around really gets under their skin. Not only do they dislike being bossed around, but they don't like to be told how to dress and act by mainstream media. Do articles like "What Not to Wear in Your 40s" make you roll your eyes so hard that you can see your brain? Then you might be a bohemian.

You struggle with the 9 to 5 lifestyle.

Bohemians don't do well in the 9-5-ish lifestyle as they are entirely too wild and spontaneous for strict schedules, dress codes, and handbooks. This shouldn't suggest that a bohemian won't work a 9-5 job. Any responsible adult who cares about keeping a roof over their head will take a job, even if it does conflict a little with their lifestyle and personality. Cubicles make bohemians feel like a caged wild animal and when the urge to break free strikes, they might burst forth from the office without warning and never return.
