- You have no desire to run up your phone bill talking to psychics (unless gathering research for a skeptical investigation!)
- You share a sense of wonder in the universe, find the pursuit of science exciting and rewarding and see little need for melding fact with fancy (except in the realm of fiction and the imagination!)

- You are interested in being involved with an organization that is doing something important.
