All about ME!

I saw that Amanda at Bits & Pieces did this quiz (click on Color Career Counselor) to find out what her ideal career path would be based on colors, so I was curious what mine would be....Here are the results:

Best Occupational Category - You're a RESEARCHER

Keywords Independent, Self-Motivated, Reserved, Introspective, Analytical, and Curious

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.

RESEARCHER OCCUPATIONS - Suggested careers are College Professor, Physician, Psychologist, Pharmacist, Chemist, Marketing Research, Inventor, Sales Forecasting, Project Engineer, Dentist, Identifying Consumer Demand, Chiropractor, Dentist, Medical Technician, Optometrist, Research & Development Manager, Respiratory Therapist, Real Estate Appraiser, Chiropractor, Veterinarian, Geologist, Physicist, Science Teacher, Medical Technologist, and Author of Technical Books.

RESEARCHER WORKPLACES - Task-oriented careers where you can become absorbed in the job, be original and creative, and not conform to rigid company rules will work best for you. Unstructured organizations, for example, that allow you to sail your own ship are vital.
Suggested Researcher workplaces are universities and colleges, home office positions, medical facilities, computer-related industries, scientific foundations and think tanks, research firms, and design laboratories.


Second Best Occupational Category - You're an ORGANIZER

Keywords: Self-Control, Practical, Self-Contained, Orderly, Systematic, Precise, and Accurate

These conservative appearing, plotting-types enjoy organizing, data systems, accounting, detail, and accuracy. They often enjoy mathematics and data management activities such as accounting and investment management. Persistence and patience allows them to do detailed paperwork, operate office machines, write business reports, and make charts and graphs.


Hmmmmmmmm.

I don't agree with the first at all. Who knew that choosing such a pretty color (purple) would make me a researcher. I am not a big fan of researching stuff.

I am big on organization...some may say a little OCD, but I do not enjoy data systems or accounting/mathematics of data management activities AT ALL. I am not big on making charts or graphs either.

I don't know if I will ever figure out what I am supposed to be when I 'grow up'.

If you take the quiz, let me know if you agree with your outcome!

I should have gotten the organizer one for mine, that's me through and through!! But ditto on disliking math and data management. But maybe "lists" count as data management, and in that case I'm ALL over those!

Oh I love me some quizes! I got organizer! Hmmm...I don't know if I'm as organized as it says I am, I'm sure my fiance would disagree. haha ;)

Nikki said...

fun quiz!! I love organization too, but I also like graphs, if only I had the time and willpower to make them...:)

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

So, I need to find something I am good at AND LIKE! hmm, could be hard! :)

Alicia said...

Kristen said...

I love these kinds of tests. I will need to post my results on my page. I got "Creator" and secondary as being "Organizer." I pretty much agree with "Creator" because, haha, that's what I'm aiming for, so they got me right on that one!

I am very much an organizer myself, I wonder what I would get on the quiz. Thanks for sharing with us! :)
