    Fabricating metal parts with programmable machinery
    Meh. Tired, okay-ish. If there's even a hint of creativity involved, I might like it.

    Making house calls to the elderly as a registered nurse
    I'd have a headache for having to put up with those people.

    Preparing meals from a large menu in a lunch restaurant
    Tired from heat and physical labor, happy for the variety of tastes created

    Building customized computers for game enthusiasts
    I'd be happy for having created awesome gaming rigs from new technology.

    Finding buyers and sellers for apartments as real estate broker
    Excited for the prestige of selling valuable property, unhappy for the hard sales I'd go for.

    Helping people to apply for unemployment aid and managing their applications
    Tired and sad, affected by people who feel beaten.

    Preparing lithographic printing plates in a design art shop
    Irritated for having had to concentrate so much on things I don't easily do well.

    Helping people on exercise techniques and sport equipment at a gym
    Happy, people are there to enjoy, and I get to tell how they do it with better results

    Fabricating metal parts with programmable machinery
    No thanks, programming is not for me, I'm not good at it or enjoy it.

    Making house calls to the elderly as a registered nurse
    Horrifying. Talking to strangers + old people + death = not for me.

    Preparing meals from a large menu in a lunch restaurant
    This could be fun, especially if I got to design my own meals instead of just following recipes.

    Building customized computers for game enthusiasts
    Meh, not my thing but it'd be ok I guess.

    Finding buyers and sellers for apartments as real estate broker
    I would hate the extroversion and I'd be bad at it.

    Helping people to apply for unemployment aid and managing their applications
    Not at all my thing.

    Preparing lithographic printing plates in a design art shop
    Not sure what this would entail so I guess it'd be ok.

    Helping people on exercise techniques and sport equipment at a gym
    Not for me, again with the strangers thing.

    There seems to be a lot of 'extroverted' options? I guess that's what society is like though....

    Fabricating metal parts with programmable machinery
    Fun! I could do that. Well, as long as it was...interesting.

    Making house calls to the elderly as a registered nurse
    Old people? I would probably be overly energized at the end of the day.

    Preparing meals from a large menu in a lunch restaurant
    I would be sick of food, but this sounds fun. I would be happy.

    Building customized computers for game enthusiasts
    I would be pretty happy, because I was able to find creative solutions.

    Finding buyers and sellers for apartments as real estate broker
    It depends on how difficult the people are. I could do that.

    Helping people to apply for unemployment aid and managing their applications
    I would be annoyed.

    Preparing lithographic printing plates in a design art shop
    Eh. I don't think I would enjoy that for eight hours.

    Helping people on exercise techniques and sport equipment at a gym
    I would be bored doing that. Not so happy.

    8 hour day.

    Fabricating metal parts with programmable machinery
    Wouldn't mind to much, don't mind getting my hands dirty.

    Making house calls to the elderly as a registered nurse
    I wouldn't mind doing this, old people are cool and often forgotten about. They tell some excellent life stories.

    Preparing meals from a large menu in a lunch restaurant
    I can't cook so No.

    Building customized computers for game enthusiasts
    Not my cup of tea.

    Finding buyers and sellers for apartments as real estate broker
    Boring

    Helping people to apply for unemployment aid and managing their applications
    Yes, trying to get a job in that field at the moment.

    Preparing lithographic printing plates in a design art shop
    Repetitive and boring

    Helping people on exercise techniques and sport equipment at a gym
    Boring


    This has been fun, thanks.

    Thank you. I guess there's a lot of relation between personality and job people enjoy. One of the best personality tests I made was related to finding out suitability to a job. It didn't ask questions like these though, but normal personality test sort of questions.

    8 hour day.

    Fabricating metal parts with programmable machinery
    I'd find the programmable part interesting; the fabrication, less so.

    Making house calls to the elderly as a registered nurse
    I'd enjoy it. For many elderly, loneliness is much more agonizing than any physical ailment.

    Preparing meals from a large menu in a lunch restaurant
    Eh. I don't buy into the notion of 'baking' the essence of one's personality into the character of their cuisine.

    Building customized computers for game enthusiasts
    Awesome.

    Finding buyers and sellers for apartments as real estate broker
    Interesting. I'd enjoy reconciling consumer desire with the practicalities of what was available/affordable.

    Helping people to apply for unemployment aid and managing their applications
    Tedious.

    Preparing lithographic printing plates in a design art shop
    Uninspiring.

    Helping people on exercise techniques and sport equipment at a gym
    Enjoyable. Physical fitness is an important part of life.

    I don't like factories but I'd be ok with this, I'd probably be just tired and a little alienated in the marxist sense...

    Making house calls to the elderly as a registered nurse
    Really, I wouldn't last 8 hours making phone calls, whatever the reason is...

    Preparing meals from a large menu in a lunch restaurant
    Cool! I'd feel great with this. Useful work, tangible result. If I knew how to cook, that is.

    Building customized computers for game enthusiasts
    SuperCool! Mine! I'm actually searching for something like this.

    Finding buyers and sellers for apartments as real estate broker
    I think I've already crystal-cleared that I don't want to bother with people in my job, and I would feel like vomited shit if I had to do it on the damn phone...

    Helping people to apply for unemployment aid and managing their applications
    This seems ok though... maybe because there's a point to it and I'm not just calling random people like in the other jobs... I'd feel drained for the social interaction but satisfied because it would be worth it.

    Preparing lithographic printing plates in a design art shop
    I'm really not the artist type... feeling very out of place and incompetent...

    Helping people on exercise techniques and sport equipment at a gym
    Sux. Maybe even worse than the phone. Wouldn't last a min. Gr8 b4d feelings of embarassment & inadequacy.

    Really? I tried to make the options presentable of occupations in the western world. I think 3 of them can be quite introverted, 4 extroverted and one ambivalent.
