So, let's see here, a sweater for cousin Ed, a bowl for Aunt Tillie, and gift cards for the kids. Presents say a lot--including something about the gift giver.In the middle of the holiday shopping frenzy, we'll take a moment on the Sound of Ideas to look at our buying habits and what they reveal about our own personalities. Identifying the neurotic, primitive and psychotic shoppers...and a little retail therapy. Wednesday at 9 a.m.
