a career assessment

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

This morning I decided it would be a fun idea to take a career assessment test to see if I'm really headed in the right direction with my chosen field/schooling.  Here are the results:

My Interests:
People with Blue interests like activities that allow them to be creative. This can be through more traditional visual arts, writing or musical pursuits although not limited to these. The creativity is often expressed in thinking of new ideas or strategies that can have a broad range of applications. Blue interests often like thinking about the future and planning for long term benefits. Hobbies include: performing or listening to music, attending theater, story telling, journaling, decorative arts, painting. Career choice often are: Editor, Journalist, Teacher, Strategic Planner, Consultant, Performing Arts, Marketing, Communications, Research and Development.

My Style:
People with Yellow strengths are good at managing details and creating sophisticated processes that allow them to get complex work done. Once a game plan has been put in place, it is implemented. Their decisions are based on facts and carefully reasoned. When working with other people, they are fair and democratic and always can be counted on to deliver what they commit to.
That fit me to a TEE.  I am extremely interested in all things that force me to use my creativity.  I also need structure and checklists.  I am a big checklist person.
and then it told me that I should be a:
special agent
criminal investigator
i'm sorry, what?
I was thinking more along the lines of illustrator, fashion designer, floral designer.. Do I look like the kind of girl who should become a special agent?...
...Didn't think so. Nice try, career builder.
