1. Writer (100%) I'm a very good writer and often times like to write, but I'd never want to do it as a job.
2. Mental health counselor (86%) Counseling is something I've felt drawn to for a long time, so this is pretty fitting.
3. Psychologist (86%) I think psychology is interesting, but I don't really want to specialize in it for a living.
4. Technical writer (79%) Meh.
5. College professor (76%) Never. I'm a patient person, but when it comes to teaching, I'm very short-tempered.
6. Editor (76%) Meh.
7. Advertising manager (74%) I've actually thought about a career in marketing/advertising, but I'm not sure if I'd ever actually do it.
8. Chefs and head cooks (74%) I love to cook, but I don't think I'm technical enough for it.
9. Curriculum developer (74%) Meh.
10. Meeting and convention planner (74%) Meh.
11. Physical therapist (74%) I suppose it's something I might be able to be good at.

1. Editor
2. Library Assistant
3. Teacher and Instructor
4. Urban Planner
5. Writer
6. Advertising Sales Agent
7. Bookkeeping, Accounting, and Auditing Clerk
8. Broadcast Technician
9. Insurance Claims and Policy Processing Clerk
10. Interpreter and Translator

Of these jobs, I would consider the following, in order of preference:

1. Writer
2. Interpreter and Translator
3. Editor
4. Teacher and Instructor (limited to TEFL or ESL)
5. (maybe) Library Assistant

The rest I would not even consider, and most would actually be nightmarish (namely anything with Sales or Clerk or Clerical in the title).

What was my last job? Interpreter and Translator (with a healthy dose of Clerical and a smidgen of firing M-16s)

Other than that I have never done anything on this list (except volunteering as a Teacher and Instructor for a couple of weeks). Most of my other jobs involved manual labor.

What do I do now? Retired for all practical purposes. I do want to pursue writing to some degree, though making money at it would be an added perk rather than a desired goal.

3.Medical Scientist
4.Oral and maxillofacial surgeon (what the heck is maxillofacial!?)
5. Editor
6. Lawyer
7. College Prof.
8. Physician assistant
9.Physical scientist
10. CEO (lol)

4. Public Relations Specialist
5. School Administrator
6. Teachers and Instructors
7. Advertising Manager
8. Interpreter and translator
9. Social Science and Research Assistants
10. Bookkeeping, accounting, auditing clerk

I am a Mental Health Counselor by profession, so I'm slightly impressed. None of the other top 10 are things I would ever consider, although I am very good at clerical/organization/systems work - it's just not something I enjoy doing in the long term.

1 Writer
2 College Professor
3 Editor
4 Psychologist
5 Speech Language Pathologist
6 Advertising Manager
7 Curator
8 Curriculum developer
9 Engineer
10 Financial Advisor

I've actually considered being all of these except for language-speech pathologist and curriculum developer

also lowest ones were
200 Geoscientist except for hydrologists and geographers
199 Forester
198 Zoologist or wildlife biologist
197 Farm, ranch or any agricultural manager
196 conservation scientist
195 coach or scout
194 construction manager

I guess the quiz guessed that I'm not so big on the "great outdoors"

My results were kinda freaky accurate in the sense that they matched up with areas I'm either currently involved in or I've thought about pursuing.

1. Editor -- I wanted to be an editor for a very, very long time, and I haven't ruled it out yet.
2. Advertising manager -- I just got hired as marketing coordinator for a logistics company, so this is basically the same thing.
3. College professor -- have considered this as well.
4. Writer -- already am a writer, and am looking to get some poetry published soon.
5. Financial advisor -- lol, this one, not so much...
6. Software engineer -- I almost minored in computer science in college because I love coding. So this is realistic.
7. Technical writer -- I'm more into creative writing, but sure.
8. Actuary -- this was my planned career when I first began college as a math major.
9. Advertising sales agent -- again, very similar to my current career, but I'm less into sales and more into advertising/marketing.
10. Human resources manager -- wouldn't mind this.

Maybe this quiz is only accurate for people like me whose dreams and life aspirations are all over the freakin' place. Hahaha.
