Oracle Riddles: What's The Point?

I am frequently asked for directions. Sometimes I am not the best to ask and will just be a waste of your time and energy. Other times I am sought exclusively. I try to lead a balanced life. But, hey, I am not perfect. What exactly am I?

Well, I was looking for b*tree index because of my "balanced" clue. Oracle implements "balanced b*tree" indexes for what we refer to naturally as b*tree indexes in Oracle. But, the classical definition of a balanced b*tree index is that all leaf nodes are on the same "level" at any moment. Technically, a bitmapped index is also implemented by a balanced b-tree given this definition. Actually, what index implementation in Oracle doesn't use the balanced b*tree implementation? The distinction is simply the way the data is stored in the index, not the structure. So, I'll accept "index" as the correct answer :)
