Take this crazy accurate career test

I “borrowed” this from my friend, Dayner, because it’s uber cool! You have to take this Careerbuilder.com test, it is so accurate. I have no idea how they do this with colors.

    It’s interesting because we all feel it tagged us correctly. Is it one of those things that would feel right no matter what was selelcted for us?. ie if I was said to be a researcher, would I be able to find a connection to myself? I have often wondered about that with star signs too…

      My husband also took it, and interestingly, it said he was a good match for a career he’s wanted to pursue, but never has. He’s a nurse and nowhere on there was anything remotely close to that career.

      It’s very interesting, I think you could be happy doing different things. For example, I am a creative person, I know that and have for a long time. As long as I’m in a position where I am allowed to think outside the box, be creative, implement new things, I am happy. I don’t have to be designing or writing, I just need to be allowed to be creative. Make sense?

    Interesting results….. Are you ON for trying this again next week? I’m wondering if my choices will change if it’s sunny instead of rainy, whatever….

      Yes, what day are we going to take it? I was wondering the same thing. I sort of looked at it as “if I was decorating, what colors would I like/hate.” That probably won’t change too much by next week, but we’ll see. There are so many selections, I can’t imagine it would be exactly the same order, etc.
