-CRIMP stands for a make-believe malady called **compulsive-reactive information management purchasing**. +
- +
-Symptoms include: +
- +
-  * never being satisfied with your current system of information management;​ +
-  * continuously being on the look-out for something newer and better; +
-  * purchasing every new PIM program you learn about; +
-  * and secretly hoping you won’t find the perfect PIM, because then you’d have to stop looking for a better one. +

-So, when someone speaks of succumbing to his or her CRIMP, it means acknowledging that they’ve purchased another PIM program even though they really don’t think they need it.+
