You Want To Do What?!

Still wondering what you should be if when you grow up?
Well, you could always take the quiz. No, pages of question to confound and perplex you. Just pick your favourite square.

As for me :

You Should Be a Politician

Confident, assertive, and dedicated - you know what you want in life and how to get it.
Stubborn and opinionated, you can stand your ground... even if it's unpopular.
And while you have strong views, you never overwhelm people with your opinions.
A true charmer, you subtly influence people into seeing things your way.

You do best when you:

- Work according to your own rules
- Can change the world with what you do

You would also be a good lawyer or talk show host.

Oh dear...
Frankly, I don't think its me.
Then again, some might argue, that my career choice might show otherwise.

Update: I'm really interested in other people's results. Let me know. Also, since I initially had a lot of trouble choosing, I went back and redid the test, picking my other choice. Apparently if this 'legal' thing' doesn't work out for me, I could also try social work. Which, given the whole write-up for that one, feels like a better fit.

Actually, that could explain a lot. Since I really do seem to be trying to combine both parts in my work at the moment. What can I say? I just gotta be me...

H/T to Think Like A Woman. Act Like A Man for the link

Nope, ain't me babe, it ain't me you're lookin' for babe. Don't mind me, that song just popped up in my mind... :)

So, I too did it twice. Said I should be an artist or a doctor. Well, #1, I can't draw, #2, I don't like blood, guts, gore, snotty noses, whiny kids, etc., so I definitely couldn't be a doctor. Unless I was a psychologist ... I suppose I could do that, except my answer for most of the whiners is "get over yourself".....

Although, I love to drink wine, so maybe I could be an artist - drinking might bring out the creative side in me. Next time I drink a bottle (or 6) I'll try something artistic!

Gee, your kids must really love you! ;-)

Well, here's what it told me! Like you, going back to see what my second choice says......brb
You Should Be a Mechanic

You are logical, calm, and detail oriented.
You're rational when things are chaotic, and for you, reason always prevails.
And while you are guided by logic, you aren't a slave to it.
You're flexible when it counts. You are always open to being wrong.

You do best when you:

- Work with your hands
- Can use tools, machines, or equipment

You would also be a good architect or carpenter.

This will crack you up...too bad they don't let you start as a general! d
You Should Be in the Military

You are driven, focused, and an extremely hard worker.
And while you can be ruthless in getting what you want, you also have a compassionate side.
You are able to balance your own desires with the needs of others.
You'll do almost anything to get the job done, but you're not willing to step on anyone's toes.

You do best when you:

- Are working with others
- Are in a fast paced environment

You would also be a good CEO or school principal.

MMC said...

That's hilaroius, d.
So tell me, which one are you really? I mean, which do you think fits you best?

MMC said...

PS Oh yeah, you as the school principal and me as the politician...

Did I ever mention that I had been (past tense) seriously considering running for the school board?

unka said...

Mine said Doctor. This stuff is like horrible scopes, ambigous enough to fit anybody. Written to make you feel good about yourself!

doorkeeper said...

Gee, M, I didn't think either was particularly me!!
Hard worker?? At getting out of work, maybe--oh, and at internet games! focused?? What were we talking about? ummm.....
and as for logical and calm????
(fell off my chair.) was fun, anyway. d

You are practical, sharp, and very intuitive.
Optimistic and energetic, you are a problem solver who doesn't get discouraged easily.
You are also quite compassionate and caring. You make people feel hopeful.
You're highly adaptable and capable. You do well with almost any curve ball life throws at you.

You do best when you:

- Are always learning new subjects
- Use your knowledge to solve problems

You would also be a good therapist or detective.

WOW! My favourite books are detective ones - got started with Nancy Drew and Judy Bolton. As for therapist ... not too far off, I teach and very often ...

Was surprised with the result hmm

Anytime EB.
And it's nice to see you back here by the way. It's been a while, too long, in fact.

BTW about the anonymous thing, another friend recently noted that if she signs in as "nickname", then she can just put in whatever name (as in her own) that she wants.
