Did you answer True to 10 or more of the above? Congratulations! You have what it takes to be a jetsetting, playboy globetrotter! Grab that passport and fanny pack and head for the skies. Globetrotters get along well with OPB listeners, Banana Republic salespeople, and Francophiles. They are hated by flight attendants, and tend to be very good at basketball. Globetrotters who bring back presents have many friends. Stingy globetrotters are lonely and have hepatitis.
