    Agreed.

    It's kind of like when I take personality type tests... I already know what it will say, both good and bad. The surprises came aplenty when I didn't know myself... Now, I kinda think I got it all down.

    It will go something like:

    you are good at being a unicorn, a listener, a gatherer of glitter.

    you are bad at being a bricklayer, a mechanic, or a teacher.

    Cze Cze, did your friend's aptitude test truly point out her aptitudes or did it do what mine did, which IMO, was more of a feel-good confidence booster where thresholds were deliberately set low so people don't get their panties in a twist over not being able to do certain things well? If it was a feel-good one, it's counterproductive since it can easily put people into careers they won't excel at, considering others within this field and competitive edge.

    In other words, did she score low and average on most categories?

    I admit I'd be curious but I don't have even close to the money to take this.

    booooo no reviews yet :P

    Jenaphor, my friend highly recommended it with like glowing reviews and really encouraged me to take it. Didn't realize the price till I looked at the website. I'm guessing it didn't say she was good at everything...since she went the fine arts/artisan route. I did find 1 review about the test from a journalist and he did say it will tell you what you *aren't* good at and it reconfirmed his career choice (almost to the letter). And if he were younger/in a different phase it would have been reassuring/given direction.

    In answer to your question Jag, I guess this test can tell you about hidden or underestimated aptitudes and prioritize your strengths. So you may think you are good at "art" but the test shows that you are actually best at moving physical objects around with your mind which lends itself to more careers than just the arts. Or something...

    Bah, I just wanna take the test. In this economy maybe they'll have a fire sale or sumthin. :P

    THe website is online but the test is administered over a couple days in person. I guess it's kinda like an IQ test in that they are testing your aptitudes.

    I realize that this is a pretty old thread, but I would definitely say "yes" to taking the J-O'C test, most especially if you are having trouble deciding on what to study or are contemplating a career change. While the MBTI and similar tests are good at describing your personality, telling you "how" you probably like to do things, and identifying careers people with your personality type succeed in, it is only one piece of the puzzle. The "what" to do piece also goes to innate abilities that you are comfortable doing (or that your body/mind "wants" to do). Finally, I would add that the more things you think you might want to do or could do, the more you need the J-O'C. I took it when many of life's doors had already closed for me (this happens, despite what a lot of feel-good advisers like to tell you), and wish I had taken it as a much younger man.
