    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates
    I'd be just okay, my help is being sought as an expert and the pay is good. I'd be happy.

    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education
    Thrilled, I could see the pupils learn new stuff, help them expand their minds. I'd handle the class well, too. On the top of my world!

    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy
    I'd be very concentrated, a bit tense perhaps, for having to be involved with such big ideas. I'd be pressured to learn on my free time.

    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research to the marketing strategy
    I'd like making money for my company, but I'd have to make an appealing message and fine-tune it over and over again so It'd be most satisfying. Terrible, really.

    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences
    Why not, I'd like the prestige of being presentable, unsure how well I'd do though, I'd be stressed from performing sub-par, if the expectations are very high. I'd be a bit stressed though excited too.

    Developing the use of land in a city, evaluating building projects and granting construction permits
    More relaxing. I'd have to research a lot of info about pedestrian movement, traffic, etc, but in the end, I'd like it. I'd be calm at the end of the day.

    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students
    The independence of it all might seem good for the start, but I'd be bored from the lack of human contact. Without input, I'd start to suspect the quality of the work, too.

    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers
    Lot of detailed work, I'd be thrilled at the idea of making human-like opponents and giving thrills for the gamers. I'd be somewhat tired but content after a day.

    8 hour day.

    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates

    I'd probably let my family die of starvation before I did this.

    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education

    Does it have to be natural science?

    I 'spose theoretical physics wouldn't be so bad. Any science that raises serious epistemological or metaphysical questions would be great.

    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy

    I have no idea what this is, but I like strategy.

    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research for the marketing strategy

    Unless it's marketing strategy. Kill me now.

    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences

    Am I allowed to give honest evaluations? Were the company virtuous, I could do this job without complaint.

    Developing the use of land in a city, evaluating building projects and granting construction permits

    If I were the primary visionary/planner, then I'd enjoy this job. Otherwise, it'd just be a paycheck.

    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students

    I'd like the autonomy, but... acting? The subject would bore me to tears.

    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers

    If I don't become a philosophy professor, this is what I'd want to do. The philosophy and mathematics that goes into this is mind-boggling. Writing computer programs that are isomorphisms of the mind? Nergasm.

    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates
    This would be so cool.

    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education
    No, but i would like to be taught it.

    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy
    No, i only like taking computers apart so see where everything goes.

    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research to the marketing strategy
    Although i have never tried it, it could be interesting.

    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences
    No.

    Developing the use of land in a city, evaluating building projects and granting construction permits
    I could do parts of this job. When bored, hand it over.

    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students
    I would be interested in this if working with an xNTJ.

    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers
    Boring.

    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates
    This I could actually imagine doing.

    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education
    Science is so not my thing.

    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy
    Yawn.

    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research to the marketing strategy
    I don't think so.

    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences
    Nah. Sounds pretty boring.

    Developing the use of land in a city, evaluating building projects and granting construction permits
    I'd love that!

    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students
    Excellent!

    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers
    Whoa. Cool. I'd give it a go.

    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates
    I would probably like this pretty well. It would get a little frustrating when my advice for preventing future trouble was ignored (as it would be), but overall I'd like it.

    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education
    I would *really* like this. Science, teaching, and actually being able to change the curriculum to optimize learning and thinking (as opposed to "teaching to the test" - which is why I don't actually go into teaching). Most likely fun (except for dealing with parents).

    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy
    This is somewhat what I do now (except that my opinion is mostly ignored). Developing systems and strategy - definite yes. Dealing with all of the red tape and ass-covering crap that's endemic in the industry? Yuck.

    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research to the marketing strategy
    No way. I find "marketing" something that society would be better off without. One of the worst things about modern society - and I'm not *that* big a hypocrite (plus, I'd hate it ).

    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences
    See marketing question. Yuck.

    Developing the use of land in a city, evaluating building projects and granting construction permits
    I think I'd like this, especially the large-scale land use development strategy (less so in the granting permits part).

    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students
    Ehhhnh. Nothing special about this for me. Acting itself might be fun, but the research and textbook-writing sounds pretty dull.

    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers In a lot of ways, game programming is what I *wish* I'd done instead of going into biology. I've a friend who did that, and his job seems much more fulfilling than mine - although the hours and stress in this field *suck*. But as far as interest and enjoyment, I'd like this (but probably on a non-FPS genre ).

    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates Pretty excellent! Excited.. Reading up on stuff.
    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education I think I would feel pretty good after this. Bringing this kind of job home with me would stress me out though.
    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy Incompetent, stressed. Tired.
    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research to the marketing strategy Pretty good, a bit stressed.
    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences Great! Energized. Especially after I got the hang of it.
    Developing the use of land in a city, evaluating building projects and granting construction permits Okay.. possibly a little bit bored.
    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students Argh. Terribly bored. Frustrated with life. Not enough interaction there.
    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers Frustrated. Not enough of a perfectionist for that job. Wouldn't mind coordinating with the game testers but would hate the programming part.

    8 hour day.

    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates

    I had the option of going to med school after high school since my grades were good, but I refused because I couldn't see myself doing something like this. So, no, I wouldn't feel good.


    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education

    Sounds good, as long as it was well-paid, I would feel really good (here teaching is not well paid, if below university level).

    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy

    I'd like the first part, dislike the second. Strategy is too vague.

    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research to the marketing strategy

    Extremely bad. I hate marketing and think it's absolutely useless. I'd feel like I'm wasting my life.

    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences

    Similar to the above, I would feel horrible.

    Developing the use of land in a city, evaluating building projects and granting construction permits

    This sounds really good, especially if I knew the city very well, I could interact with the population, with the architects and engineers from the city...yes, this would be ideal.


    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students

    Ohoho, no way I could do this.

    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers[/QUOTE]

    Programming would bore me, I think. I could do it if I had a lot of flexibility, but as a rule of thumb I'd prefer jobs that allowed me to interact with people and be outdoors.

    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates
    Not so great, I don't think I could stand listening to people complaining about getting screwed over on the job. I'd be counting the minutes until 8 hrs was up.

    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education
    Grade school? No thanks, the kids don't actually want to be in class. Frustrated at deaf ears. Higher education? I'd love it, I really enjoy explaining things coherently, everybody tells me I'm great at it. Fulfilled, like I've done something good, and done it well.

    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy
    I'd rather drop a server on my head.

    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research to the marketing strategy
    Could I just sell my soul directly to the Devil? I think he'd give me a better price. I'd feel cheap and used.

    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences
    See above.

    American cities need more character and less efficiency, IMO
    Accomplished, satisfied, happy that others might appreciate my work.

    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students
    Dramatic effect can't be taught, I'd be wasting my time .: Boreddd.

    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers
    I'd rather speak Klingon than 0110010001. I wouldn't make it through 8 hrs, so I can't answer the question.

    Preventing, diagnosing and treating work-related illness and writing medical certificates

    I like med stuff and diagnosing, if it was really routine, then might get bored.


    Teaching natural sciences in a private school and developing the best practices in education

    Could be quite fun. I like teaching, I'm not always a fan of teaching high school students though. So that might be a problem.


    Developing ICT systems in the organization and participating in the creation of strategy

    I just read what an ICT system is . Could be fun and challenging.


    Planning for marketing campaigns and applying marketing research to the marketing strategy

    I love marketing. So would be up for this.


    Evaluating and developing the company image, writing press releases and organizing press conferences

    Yep, as long as I got to tell the truth most of the time.


    Developing the use of land in a city, evaluating building projects and granting construction permits

    More planning. Don't mind it if there is creative designing and solutions involved.


    Researching the history and methods of acting and writing a textbook for drama students

    I'd be quite interested in this. Maybe not good at it though.


    Programming the game AI of a first person shooter and coordinating with the game testers

    I think AI would be a pretty interesting area to plan and program.
