WHITE GULLIBON
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who watches a lot of television, because your television friends never lie to you. Family and friends use your kitchen to store lawn equipment. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time browsing about a thrift store seeking to buy either a packet of address labels large enough for addresses of both the sender and the recipient or a key chain with a built-in flashlight and panic button. Be on the lookout for door-to-door salesmen. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter B, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 793862. Your preferred shopping venue is television shopping channels. Your special symbol is the minus sign (-).


Is this You?

As a White Gullibon, you are extremely trusting but somewhat impressionable, seeing only the good in other people. You tend to be a bit naive in the wily ways of the marketplace and thus are often exploited by others, especially the Reg Aggressorine. Like it or not, you are the poster child for the phrase "let the buyer beware." You are empathetic to the plight of others, often to your own detriment.


This isn't me! What am I?

Packing Up For MIGRATION

The quiet, peaceful town of Shady Valley has always been a great place for a pedestrian to wander through the workings of the economy. I'm afraid, though, that it's about to end. I've been offered another job -- an opportunity to wander around the streets of the distant mecca of Shady Lane to search out the mysteries of plant pathology. In Shady Lane, the sidewalks are smoother, the crosswalks are better, and the pay is much more lucrative. However, in that Shady Lane is in another time zone and several states away, migration would be my last topic of the day. There's a lot to be gained from this potential relocation of my residence, but it's not without cost. While I ponder this decision, perhaps you can help out by considering the topic of migration.
