Quiz: What’s Your Ideal Career?

What should you be when you grow up?

Do you know what you want to be when you grow up? If you’re like many of us, you probably know what you want to be sometimes… and you probably change your mind often. I find that not knowing what you want to be when you grow up is not just for the young – adults of all ages end up reconsidering their careers. There’s so many great options in this world that it’s hard to choose just one career.

When I was young, I never thought I would grow up to write personality quizzes on the internet. The commercial internet wasn’t even really a thing when I was a kid. I did enjoy non-fiction writing a lot, but I never thought it would actually be what I did. If you had asked me back then, I would have said something like lawyer or economist or mathematician. While all those are worthy professions, I’m having a lot more fun as a quiz writer and website coder. I am finally at the place where what I want to be when I grow up is actually what I am. Good thing too, because I’m all grown up 😉

Whether you know what you want to be when you grow up or not, taking What’s Your Ideal Career? may be useful for you. It will either point you in the right direction or validate the path you have already chosen. What’s Your Ideal Career? is a basic career aptitude test with a Blogthings twist. It will tell you your career personality type, as well as careers that you might be well suited for.

Please Take What’s Your Ideal Career?, and let me know what you get. Do you think your result is accurate? What do you want to be when you grow up? Was your career (or something similar to it) on the list?

What do you think?

    Your Career Type: Conventional

    You are orderly and good at following a set plan.
    Your talents lie in working with written records and numbers in a systematic, orderly way.

    You would make an excellent:
    Bank Teller – Bookkeeper – Court Clerk
    Mail Carrier – Post Office Clerk – Secretary
    Timekeeper – Title Examiner – Typist

    The worst career options for your are artistic careers, like comedian or dancer.

    (except i do enjoy some crafts, but yes)

    Your Career Type: Artistic

    You are expressive, original, and independent.
    Your talents lie in your artistic abilities: creative writing, drama, crafts, music, or art.

    You would make an excellent:

    Actor – Art Teacher – Book Editor
    Clothes Designer – Comedian – Composer
    Dancer – DJ – Graphic Designer
    Illustrator – Musician – Sculptor

    The worst career options for your are conventional careers, like bank teller or secretary.

    Original and independent describe me, and graphic designer seems like a cool job (especially with gaming for me), but I don’t care for the rest.

    I got Investigative. While none of the things I do for Blogthings (programming, writing, etc) are on that list, I think it fits. I do a lot of research in my daily activities 🙂
