Picking a career path

So I came across this Career-Color Analysis on another blog and thought "why not?"

I have those moments...days...weeks...when I wonder what am I supposed to be doing?
....what else could I be doing?
...what else would I be good at?

Somehow I'm not surprised at the answers and others...well let's just say I made comments below on some of their "suggestions". (See bold words/phrases - those are my comments)





*     *     *
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 (me? accounting? haha. They obviously have never looked at my check book), detail, and accuracy. They often enjoy mathematics and data management activities such as accounting and investment management. (who are they talking about?) Persistence and patience allows them to do detailed paperwork, operate office machines, write business reports, and make charts and graphs.

ORGANIZER CAREERS
Suggested careers are Administrator, Secretary, Printer, Paralegal, Building Inspector, Bank Cashier, Private Secretary, Statistician, Operations Manager, Financial Analyst, Bookkeeper, Medical Records Technician, Developer of Business or Computer Systems, Clerical Worker, Proofreader, Accountant, Administrative Assistant, Banker, Certified Public Accountant, Credit Manager, Store Salesperson, Actuary, Dental Assistant, Business Education Teacher, Food Service Manager, IRS Agent, Budget Analyst, and Underwriter. (Most of these I just laughed at)

ORGANIZER WORKPLACES
Your very careful, conscientious, conservative nature gives others the confidence to trust you with handling money and material possessions. Structured organizations that have well-ordered chains of command work best for you.

Suggested Organizer workplaces are large corporations, business offices, financial lending institutions, banks, insurance companies, accounting firms, and quality control and inspection departments.


2nd 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.

So this is what I get for taking a Career-Color test. Because I like blues and greens I apparently should become a CPA or IRS agent. LMAO!! And we thought the economy took a nose dive before!!
