GRAY SKITTERY
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who tends to bounce around from job to job, friend to friend, and activity to activity, never spending too much time or energy doing any one thing. Family and friends have no idea how many contradictory thoughts are going through your head at one time. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time flipping through mail order catalogs hoping to buy either a remote controlled ceiling fan or a how-to book on home decorating. Be on the lookout for telephone calls from former employers. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter D, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 225566. Your preferred shopping venue is mail order catalogs. Your special symbol is the question mark (?).


Is this You?

As a Gray Skittery, you are ambivalent, indecisive, and uncertain. You are in a constant struggle between the forces of demand and supply, production and consumption, good and evil... and you're losing the battle. You have trouble making decisions and choosing from among the seemingly infinite number of options that you perpetually face. Your shopping experiences are inevitably confusing.


This isn't me! What am I?
DIAMOND-WATER PARADOX

Creating WEALTH

Wealth -- what is it and how do you get it? Perhaps one of those home business franchises that sell cleaning products, housewares, or perfume can be your source of financial independence. And, as evidenced by those late-night infomercials, the always lucrative area of real estate investment is almost certain to turn you into a gadzillionaire by next Thursday. Or perhaps tinkering in the financial markets with penny stocks, gold futures, or silver options is more your cup of tea. (My personal favorite is the Darling Donna's Chimney Sweep outfit that gives you the opportunity for a meaningful career in the high-profile field of chimney maintenance products.) The question for today is: Are any of these get-rich-quick schemes better than buying a lottery ticket?
