lets go shopping

All you have to do is to take the quiz Barclaycard and researchers from the  University of Brunel have developed.

This will ask you to answer few questions and will place you in one of four ‘shopping tribes’.

Oh, and don’t believe the bubble saying ‘It takes 60 seconds to complete’! It takes 20 seconds; at least this is how long it took me and I did time it (sad, I know).


Did you do it? Now, to enter the competition for £60 to spend on Amazon (and you can win even if you are not a Screen Saver) leave a comment telling us what shopping tribe you belong to: this will take another 40 seconds!

Have you ever earned £60 in 60 seconds? Gosh, this is a pound a second?

This is your chance! I’ll select randomly the winner on Sunday, December 1st and announce her/him here.

What is my tribe?

I dislike shopping with passion! Always have done.

I don’t like going to shops, I have problem choosing stuff and if nothing shouts at me ‘buy me, I am yours’ within three seconds of entering a shop I am out. Empty-handed!

With one exception: bookshops. I could spend hours there, test-reading the books, inhaling the smell of paper and glue and forgetting about the world.

My deteriorating eyesight put a stop to this; I found Amazon. Now I can spend long on the web, looking for books and buying them with one click. Kindle in my book was the greatest invention since canned beer (pun intended).

Imagine my surprise to be told that I am a ‘high street pounder’. This means that I like shopping in ‘real’ shops, know the name of my local butcher and greengrocer, can be tempted by luxury items and while committed to my family, I still want to enjoy ‘me’ time.

Which is all true!

So I am left here wondering how a test of four question or so can tell me stuff about myself that I didn’t know. Then again, the University of Brunel has some really hot researchers :).

Have you done the quiz yet? What are you waiting for – use your chance to win £60 and achieve deeper self knowledge.
