    Has anyone taken this?

    My friend took it (costs $600-$800!!! crazy!) and she highly recommends it.

    It sounds like fun, if you're rich and bored.

    @_@ $800 bucks for a test?

    If it adds to your resume I can see how this is an investment.

    Dude, WTF. I'd love to do it, just for the experience. Sounds fun. But you have to make multiple appointments, probably fly or drive to one of the centers each of the times, and pay $700.

    How many people, practically, have the means to do that?

    I sure as fuck don't.

    I don't think it will help you on a resume, unless maybe you want to work at a testing center. It's supposed to tell you what you are or will be good at - as opposed to what you want to do. And that's the reason I wanted to hear from people who've actually taken the test - while it is pricey and it takes a few days to do but it's been around for over 10 years so someone's gotta be taking it.

    So more answers! I wanna hear from someone who took this!

    I've never taken an aptitude test of any kind, I do not know my aptitude at all. though if it wasn't 800 I'd considered taking this test, mostly because i'm totally lost about the future and what I want from it.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    As a teenager, my parents forced me to take a massive aptitude test (can't remember the name of it) which was highly touted back then. What came of it was that I scored over 90% on all categories. Useless since it supposedly meant that I could do anything which isn't true at all. So for years, this has made me kind of cynical about aptitude tests in general.

    I've taken aptitude tests before, but not that one. I don't get it, though. Once you reach a certain age with adequate life experience, shouldn't you already know what your abilities are?
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    I don't need a test to tell me what I already know about myself.
    600-800 bucks is a rip off.
