When you compulsively start learning a new language just because you think the script looks cool. And you actually keep it up.

When your list of life goals includes a whole category just for all the languages you want to learn.

When you take a language class and realize that you know the language better than the teacher.

When you are interested in some simple poor immigrants, because you're interested in their language.

Guilty of these. I download resources and audiobooks for languages I'm not learning, and buy cheap second hand books in languages I can't read(yet).

...we have a winner.

Mine:

...when you refuse to read textbooks in your native language because it might interfere with your immersion process. (Guilty!)

...when you have so many language books you're not currently using that you use some of them to make sure the plants reach all the way up to the window from your really low table. (Also guilty.)

...when you have experimented with creating your own languages to understand your own sense of aesthetics better.
