So my daughter took a test at school to see what job she would be good at...
December 4, 2012 at 10:37 AM
She got the most random jobs ever, this is a child that is in all honors classes, taking algebra 2 in 9th grade, and in marchjng band and theater on top of that. She already has her college picked out because they have the best marine biology program. The jobs this test said would be good for her are, taxidermist (I don't see that going well since she can't even squish a bug lol), black smith (wtf!? Someone needs to update this test) ships crewmen (???) and an animal breeder. My smart ass kid says "well I guess I don't need college I'll just breed animals and then taxidermey them on the ship I'm a crewman on while black smithing stands for them"
I wonder how a test like that works I never took one in school that I remember.

    That's great. My daughter took that test. Her results were that she would be a good politician ( a kid who is so shy she can't open her mouth in front of strangers), a typist (way to push them towards college) and a garbage collector (severe OCD and a garbage collector... well I guess we can put to rest that test ever helping anyone.

    Those tests combine self-reported personality traits with self-reported interests.

    I got religious leader and stewardess, actress, writer, and some other artsy stuff.

    While the actual occupations they come up with are dated, they actually do a decent job of taking into account your interests and putting them into a tangible occupation.

    Ultimately, I am a sales exec at a marketing company- lol.
