    The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true. -Sagan

    This is how these always come out for me. If you are someone whose career advice tends along the lines of studying/pursuing what's more economical, that's fine and actually what I ended up doing; but then if in the same breath you recommend taking career quiz like this for guidance, please just stop. This annoyed me throughout my entire coming of age. Or maybe I wasn't doing the tests right; dunno.

    These are a few of the personal strengths that you bring to the job.

    You are a highly altruistic and compassionate person who is dedicated to helping and serving other people. You are deeply motivated to make other people's lives better and happier. You are excellent at cooperating with others, sensing their needs, and being of service to those around you.

    You are imaginative and forward-thinking, and talented at envisioning the future. You do not mind venturing into unknown territory and are enthusiastic about change and innovation. You are excellent at thinking abstractly, coming up with new ideas, and using your creativity to solve complex problems.

    You are good at balancing structure and flexibility. You know how to plan ahead and set goals, while still being open to opportunities that arise in the moment. You tend to persist in your work unless something important distracts you, in which case you can easily switch gears. Although you like to stay organized and on-track when possible, you are comfortable with a certain level of uncertainty and are ready to adapt when circumstances change.

    I feel you. The tests are surface level. There is a difference between enjoying something, finding something interesting, and being able to do something every day without wanting to blow your brains out.

    The creator.

    Meh, I hate getting dirty and hurting my knees to install something for someone's home. I hate the fact I could drill into myself accidentally. Get more splinters than intended.

    I loved the theory in chemistry more than the practical lab applications (although knowing the president of the chemistry association at my college was pretty cool, she was friendly and quite attractive and her awkward voice made her so enjoyable to be with.)


    I never managed a business nor took any business classes so the other answers flew over my head.


    So you could simply narrow the test to:

    1) do you want to create pretty things to show off to people?
    2) do you want to squint real hard at pieces of paper while sitting on a possibly comfy chair for 8 hours a day?
    3) do you want to bend over and have physical health issues fun making stuff that's kind of good for people?
    4) do you want to be selfishly motivated and make sure everyone in the room agrees with you?
    5) do you want to lie to people so you can earn a decent living?
    6) do you want to stress and agonize and hope for funding from the government so your idea can be possibly tested?

    I think it's fairly obvious people will choose 1 more than the others.

    A Look at Your Key Strengths

    These are a few of the personal strengths that you bring to the job.

    You are imaginative and forward-thinking, and talented at envisioning the future. You do not mind venturing into unknown territory and are enthusiastic about change and innovation. You are excellent at thinking abstractly, coming up with new ideas, and using your creativity to solve complex problems.

    You are equally good at working with others, and working on your own. You can engage with other people to accomplish team projects effectively, but you are also able to motivate yourself to work independently. Because you can be productive in both an independent mode and a social mode, you are able to adapt well to a variety of work environments and activities.

    You are good at coping with the stress levels of a typical job and are unlikely to become anxious, depressed, or upset due to the demands of your work. You are generally resilient and able to bounce back from stressful situations. While a highly stressful job may not suit you, you are well equipped to cope with the emotional demands of most positions.
