    I'd be thrilled if my results made a difference to a project, but I'd probably think I'd accomplished little. So, I'd feel fine.

    Design, maintain and supervise the installation of telecommunications systems
    I'd be quite happy, if a bit burdened by the amount of work alone. I'd rather not work for a huge ISP that has dozens of technicians working on small parts just like me.

    Estimate the amount of timber in a forest, plan for logging with the foresters and participate in reforestation.
    Being outside a lot, doing manual work, too.. I'd be afraid of making an accident with the chainsaw, but at least my job had felt real and I'd be satisfied.

    Composing songs for your band, arranging gigs to bars and nightclubs and playing an instrument
    The pressure from trying to be appealing to multiple people would be very wearing, but I'd be thrilled from performing well, supposing I could do it.

    Teaching theory in a driving school, giving driving lessons and administrating driving tests for them
    I'd rather teach another subject, I'd do this less than half-hearted. I'd be glad from overseeing the whole process of their learning, so I'd be content, if bit meh.

    Designing statistical data collection, analysis, interpretation and publishing the results
    If I got to find new statistical phenomena to examine, and I could make my own research plans, I'd be absolutely thrilled. If it's making the same chart over and over again, I'd be depressed.

    Helping people maintain, restore and develop their movement and functional ability as a physiotherapist
    I wouldn't be in this kind of work in the first place, and if I were, I'd just bite my teeth to get over the dullness, and having to be "therapeutic, understanding and nice" and all

    Evaluating and planning for filming locations and timetables, overseeing set construction, and hiring extras
    This would be frigging awesome! Okay there's a lot of detailed planning involved, but It'd be okay, I'd see it before my eyes how my work influences everything. I'd be excited.

    Well geographical data is boring, but collecting data about a rocket test firing would be hot or developing a new engine concept for cars

    Design, maintain and supervise the installation of telecommunications systems
    This special branch of Computer and Electronics never got much of my attention

    Estimate the amount of timber in a forest, plan for logging with the foresters and participate in reforestation.
    Would be cool, I'ld feel that I did something good

    Composing songs for your band, arranging gigs to bars and nightclubs and playing an instrument
    Would be easy, as my musical style would be prolly Schranz or some other evil german techno consisting of only 3 notes per song

    Teaching theory in a driving school, giving driving lessons and administrating driving tests for them
    Again as a german guy it would be hell for the people I teach, due to my pedantic nature Fun for me ? Maybe for a week

    Designing statistical data collection, analysis, interpretation and publishing the results
    One has to do that at least once in his life and that's when one does his PhD. Other than that I'ld like a ship, 50 loyal marine soldiers, 10 geeky scientists and 1 chef and an unchartered piece of island

    Helping people maintain, restore and develop their movement and functional ability as a physiotherapist
    I imagine, given my medical skills, this would end like Mary Shellys Frankenstein

    Evaluating and planning for filming locations and timetables, overseeing set construction, and hiring extras
    Again, not so thrilling, but worth an experience for maybe 1 or 2 weeks. I'ld rather act myself tho.

    Measuring, editing and visualizing geographical data as a Surveying Technician

    I would love it. I love geography and using my visual abilities.

    Design, maintain and supervise the installation of telecommunications systems

    Sounds boring, but tolerable.

    Estimate the amount of timber in a forest, plan for logging with the foresters and participate in reforestation.

    I'd really like it, especially the outdoors part.

    Composing songs for your band, arranging gigs to bars and nightclubs and playing an instrument

    Bad, I'm not good with instruments, also I don't think I could compose songs that easily.

    Teaching theory in a driving school, giving driving lessons and administrating driving tests for them

    Bad, I don't like to shout at people, and I wouldn't love the danger.

    Designing statistical data collection, analysis, interpretation and publishing the results

    Sounds fine, as long as I had freedom (i.e. I wasn't forced to be at the office every day). If I had to sit in a cubicle doing it for 8 hours, I'd feel like I'm going to die.

    Helping people maintain, restore and develop their movement and functional ability as a physiotherapist

    If I could do it, It'd be great. I don't think I have the skills, though.

    Evaluating and planning for filming locations and timetables, overseeing set construction, and hiring extras

    Sounds weird, I wouldn't love to interact with movie stars, but better than many other jobs. However, I'm sure that it would be extremely stressful.

    Even skilled jobs can be learned if one has the ability and believes he/she would enjoy the job. Everybody has to start from scratch at some time. So it's less of a matter of initial skill I'm asking, but more of the job's suitability for different personalities after the job has been learned.

    It's interesting to know how easy / hard it would be for any of you to learn some skill, given the expectation of working with it, and how much those work settings described would motivate you towards learning.

    It's the expectation of how one would feel in a job that motivates or discourages people, in addition to ability, practical possibility and other stuff.

    I always wanted to become a doctor of Medicine as a child. Read like a million books about it when I was young. Never knew how I ended up with mechanical engineering.

    I am convinced, had I done it the other way around, namely to read alot of books about engineering when I was young, I would have become a doctor

    Like I wanted to kill myself

    Design, maintain and supervise the installation of telecommunications systems
    Pretty pumped to see what I designed in action, and to see how the stuff actually works. I also like big-picture planning and supervising.

    Estimate the amount of timber in a forest, plan for logging with the foresters and participate in reforestation.
    Drained...doesn't sound very interesting.

    Composing songs for your band, arranging gigs to bars and nightclubs and playing an instrument
    Embarrassed at how horribly I did =(

    Teaching theory in a driving school, giving driving lessons and administrating driving tests for them
    Driving theory? what? At any rate sounds pretty lame...I wouldn't mind it for a day though, since there'd be tons of people to talk to.

    Designing statistical data collection, analysis, interpretation and publishing the results
    Designing the data collection and analyzing it sounds pretty fun. Actually making the tables and publishing it would suck. I'd be down though.

    Helping people maintain, restore and develop their movement and functional ability as a physiotherapist
    Awkward, bored, and tired.

    Evaluating and planning for filming locations and timetables, overseeing set construction, and hiring extras
    Since it's only a 1 day thing, it'd be pretty cool to see how that stuff works. I wouldn't like it much though.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Omg, finding new areas in the world would be most extreme, awesome situation ever possible to imagine in my life. Finding mental and intellectual areas come only second noticing that all the areas in the world have been found, more or less..

    Ohhh, there is more. Bring it on.

    Measuring, editing and visualizing geographical data as a Surveying Technician
    That could be interesting.

    Design, maintain and supervise the installation of telecommunications systems
    I would only do the supervising part of the job.

    Estimate the amount of timber in a forest, plan for logging with the foresters and participate in reforestation.
    Cool.

    Composing songs for your band, arranging gigs to bars and nightclubs and playing an instrument
    No, not really

    Teaching theory in a driving school, giving driving lessons and administrating driving tests for them
    They would never pass their test (speed limits are only a guide )

    Designing statistical data collection, analysis, interpretation and publishing the results
    Boring.

    Helping people maintain, restore and develop their movement and functional ability as a physiotherapist
    Not rewarding enough.

    Evaluating and planning for filming locations and timetables, overseeing set construction, and hiring extras
    I could do this.
