Who Wants Snake Oil?

Here’s an interesting quiz (taken when I should have been working). I like my results, although anyone familiar with my brief foray into sales as a ‘Diamond Dirt’ retailer in a mall kiosk at age twenty would know I certainly do not possess anything close to a gift of tongues:

“Excuse me, does this stuff work?”
Well, this plant’s not dead.” Gestures to the limp, scraggly bit of foliage submerged in the aqua-hued gelatinous goo.
“What does it do?”
“Lets you put your houseplants in a clear vase so you can see the colored gel the roots are stuck in.”
“Is it better than dirt?”
Once again eyes the plant that’s psychically screaming for an end to its tortured existence. “Probably not.”

You are The Magician

Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.

Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.

The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man – either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.

    So I happen to be The Hermit.Thanks man, finding out that I am a hermit really puts the bounce back in my step!….very fitting….

    I’m… Wheel… of…. FORTUNE!!!Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of intoxication with successThe Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.No arguments outta me!

    LOL, yeah, I thought you might recognize my awesome marketing style. 🙂

    Kate — I think I even got that awesome pitch from you when I asked if I could buy Masquerade. 😉 And, it wasn’t crap, so you should probably stop saying that.Sqt — Being Empress is nice, but now you’re going to have everyone coming to you with their problems, asking you to fix them, do some sort of mag…Oh, wait. I guess that’s me.Charles — Aww, come on. Live on the edge. Besides, death in the tarot only means change, possibly for the good. If it’s bad, though, don’t blame me.

  • Charles Gramlich

    I’m probably “death.” Maybe I better not try.

  • SQT

    I always get the Empress when I take this test. Hard to complain about that.

  • Kate S

    Apparently, I’m the Magician too. Find that a wee bit hard to believe.I sell about as well as you. My book marketing strategy:”What’s the title of your book so I can buy it.””Oh, no, please, really don’t bother – it’s crap.””But I want to.”Sigh… “I’ll give you one if you must. Don’t waste your money.”
