career by colour

I found this quiz through the How About Orange blog. They reckon they can figure out what career you should be in just by a short quiz where you pick your most favourite and least favourite colours.

Well, I have my mother’s genes and LOVE filling out forms, quizes, questionnaires, so I clicked the link…

I am a CREATOR and PERSUADER apparently.

The first one feels about right…

Nonconforming, Impulsive, Expressive, Romantic, Intuitive, Sensitive, and Emotional

These original types place a high value on aesthetic qualities and have a great need for self-expression. They enjoy working independently, being creative, using their imagination, and constantly learning something new. Fields of interest are art, drama, music, and writing or places where they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas.

Explains why I like those interior design magazines so much. And the “emotional” is pretty much spot on too *wink*

I’m not so sure about the persuader part though…

Witty, Competitive, Sociable, Talkative, Ambitious, Argumentative, and Aggressive

These enterprising types sell, persuade, and lead others. Positions of leadership, power, and status are usually their ultimate goal. Persuasive people like to take financial and interpersonal risks and to participate in competitive activities. They enjoy working with others inside organizations to accomplish goals and achieve economic success.

Talkative? oui. Sociable? definitely. Witty? I like to think so.

But likes taking financial and interpersonal risks…? I don’t think so. Ask any of the people closest to me and they will be able to tell you how chicken I am whenever it comes to taking risks or confronting or persuading people.

So kinda there! Take the test here and tell me what you get 🙂
