One thing I learned long ago is that you're never too old to realize your dreams!

Interesting test. I'm a creator/organiser which I think is quite a good summary. I'm physically creative in my hobbies such as the fashion doll and doll house restoration and sewing. I've created my own website and I'm a dancer.

In terms of my current work I'm mentally creative in that I have to take unorthodox approaches to situations and come up with new ways of doing things. Once I have my strategy in mind, I then set up processes to implement it. I'm changing the way criminal justice is delivered in our area.

Interestingly I was a careers adviser for many years so am very familiar with career tests and this one is quite good.

My first was CREATOR and the second was SOCIAL ORGANIZER. I think they were pretty accurate! I love tests like these. I have a book called the COLOR CODE that is a personality profile and it describes the personalities as RED, BLUE, WHITE, YELLOW it's really cool. I have always wondered though what personality type is the most likely to want to take a personality profile quiz??

Mine was spot on... DOER, which included a whole bunch of engineering jobs and I was like NO way. This is way off all kinds of hardcore jobs, then second to last DANCER! BAMMMM spot on spooky test! I was a championship irish dancer!!!

My second was a Researcher which is totally me. I swear I could read an encyclopedia every night before bed!

Wow -- that's pretty spot on. Creator as the best category, and second is organizer. Guess both match my job as a web developer (design and build websites, but balance out doing graphics work with actual hard coding the scripts to make the site work as a whole)...

Second Linda's statement -- think everyone in the forum is first and foremost a Creator. I mean, look at all the works of art everyone has posted in the gallery! :)

When I was in school I was torn between wanting to become an astronomer or a novelist.

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up! I've tried quite a few things, but there's so much more! Then again, grow up? Why?

this was very accurate

It said creator and social manager for my careers based on colors. I am a photographer and am currently in school working towards my ph.d in psychology! I want to teach psychology and counsel military families. Pretty accurate I would say!

Well, I took the test then had my daughter take it. It was spot on for me but not even close for my daughter :hmm:

When my husband gets home I'm going to ask him to take it...can't wait to see what it says for him :D

I'm a Creator/Persuader ... that pretty well sums me up! Like Sandy, I still haven't figured out what I want to be when I grow up.

Nice to have company, Kathie!

Well, you all got my curiosity going and I found the link to this test. Let me tell you... it said that my best occupational category is that I'm an organizer; second, that I'm a doer! Nothing about creativity at all. I'd make a good IRS agent? They've got to be kidding! Me? Ah, I don't think so. Careful, conservative nature? I don't know who they're referring to, but that sure aint me! Stupid test! Doer? ... if any of this is true, why haven't I finished my Garfield yet???

That's pretty funny, actually. Thanks, I needed a laugh! I just keep reminding myself that the whole idea of building a dollhouse is the BUILDING A DOLLHOUSE part of it -- not the putting it on a shelf 'cause it's done part!

I agree. The finished houses aren't fun for me any more. They're just sitting collecting dust. I'm not one to play with them when they're finished. Might as well move them to a museum.
