I tried to post excerpts from an interesting article yesterday, but apparently the post was too long, because Blogger ate it. I really want to get it up here, so I'll retype it later and divide it up into 2 or 3 parts.

I just took an online career quiz that I found through this blog, and thought the results were worth remembering (for me, that is):

My "interest color" is blue: "People with blue Interests like job responsibilities and occupations that involve creative, humanistic, thoughtful, and quiet types of activities. Blue Interests include abstracting, theorizing, designing, writing, reflecting, and originating, which often lead to work in editing, teaching, composing, inventing, mediating, clergy, and writing."

My "usual style" is yellow (are those fightin' words?): "People with yellow styles perform their job responsibilities in a manner that is orderly and planned to meet a known schedule. They prefer to work where things get done with a minimum of interpretation and unexpected change. People with a yellow style tend to be orderly, cautious, structured, loyal, systematic, solitary, methodical, and organized, and usually thrive in a research-oriented, predictable, established, controlled, measurable, orderly environment. You will want to choose a work environment or career path in which your style is welcomed and produces results."

And finally, here is their list of careers that they feel would interest me (bold ones are the ones I can agree with):
Animator; Child Care Worker; Chiropractor; City Planner; Comedian; Consultant; Corporate Lawyer (eeeuuugh!); Cosmetologist; Digital Artist; Editor; Fashion Designer(I actually studied this in college for a while); Florist; Hospice Nurse; Interior Designer; Inventor; Journalist; Landscape Architect; Librarian; Media Planner; Mediator; Nurse; Office Manager; Optometrist(I've worked for an optician); Paralegal; Philosopher(does anyone really make a living doing this?); Photographer; Physician Assistant; Product Designer; Public Relations; Secretary; Set Designer; Small Business Owner; Teacher; Theologian; Training Specialist; Trial Lawyer (eeeuuugh, again!); Web Art Director; Web Editor; Website Designer; Writer.

Notice the proliferation of bold print--now do you know why I can't decide what I want to be when I grow up?
