Career Color Test

Sitting here wondering what the hell I wanna do for a job/career... I came across this site careerpath.com. They have this color test to kind of match you with a general area for you to look into. I took the test twice...

Here are some results from my test:
Quote:
Your very careful, conscientious, conservative nature gives others the confidence to trust you with handling money and material possessions. Structured organizations that have well-ordered chains of command work best for you.
Quote:
These investigative types gather information, analyze and interpret data, and inquire to uncover new facts. They have a strong scientific orientation, enjoy academic or research environments and prefer self-reliant jobs. Dislikes are group projects, selling, and repetitive activities.
Quote:
These adventurous types prefer action-oriented, concrete problems rather than dealing with thought-provoking, ambiguous, abstract dilemmas. Fields of interest include mechanical, construction, and outdoor careers. They might also enjoy working with machines, tools, and equipment to repair or build something.
Some of the "careers" suggested:
Quote:
Suggested careers are Administrator, Secretary, Printer, Paralegal, Building Inspector, Bank Cashier, Private Secretary, Statistician, Operations Manager, Financial Analyst, Bookkeeper, Medical Records Technician, Developer of Business or Computer Systems, Clerical Worker, Proofreader, Accountant, Administrative Assistant, Banker, Certified Public Accountant, Credit Manager, Store Salesperson, Actuary, Dental Assistant, Business Education Teacher, Food Service Manager, IRS Agent, Budget Analyst, and Underwriter.
Ok... the first part kind of matches me... the part about hating repetitive activities is an exact match. But some of the careers they lists... like WTF? I can't see myself doing any of that. The building inspector sounds interesting... but most of it is like how does that match up?!

I thought this was kinda fun... but don't think I'm going to take it seriously.

Don't take advice from a test that doesn't know the difference between your and you're.

Degree being a key word. Also, is she an accountant? There is a difference between working in accounting and being an accountant.

Well the sad thing is... online colleges don't offer hardly anything aside from general studies. If I was even able to move down to the Phoenix area to attend a college, I'd still have to have a full time job to pay for everything, along with going to classes. Being where I'm at, I don't have access to any type of schooling(Gila Community is a joke).

I'd really like to get into the engineering/drafting segment... but math isn't one of my strong points. I don't think I'd mind working in an office, but I'd much prefer to be outdoors... so driving around and visiting job sites or customers would probably be a lot better. Sounds a lot like I'd fit into some kind of construction section... opinions?

Hey Az, have you ever thought about a career in Hucking Chickens at Aircraft Windshields?

I second what tiny said. One of my childhood dreams was to become a Forest Ranger.
But, lets see... Engineering and Outdoors? The Parks Service has an awesome program (I checked this out when I got out of drafting school) where you can work with the restoration of historic buildings and towns. When I got out of school, there was a sizable restoration project going on in Harpers Ferry WV. Some gorgeous country right there. Also, The Forestry Service is always looking at ways to prevent erosion....

Just something to ponder. Good luck Az. Go find yourself a sugar mama to put you through school!

Like a cop? Never really thought about that...

I had an uncle that worked for the US Forest Service for some 25 years. Might be something to look into.

Hell yes, Az, I would love that job. You want to be outside. The rangers around here are cops and they drive rubicons.
