realistic 12, investigative 15.

I didn't get a social score, I guess that means I'm well suited for a degree in applied sociopathy?

Investigative Total: 5

INVESTIGATIVE people prefer to think rather than to act, to organize and understand rather than to persuade. They are not apt to be too "people oriented".

Career fields suitable for this personality: Science Mathematics Meteorology Medicine Pharmacology Architecture

Artistic Total: 6

ARTISTIC people value self-expression and relations with others through artistic expression. They dislike structure, prefer tasks involving personal or physical skills, and are more prone to expression of emotion than others. They are like investigative people but are more interested in the cultural-aesthetic than the scientific.

Career fields suitable for this personality: Art/Graphic Design Fashion Design Music Performer Writing/Editing Radio

Social Total: 10

SOCIAL people seem to satisfy their needs in teaching or helping situation. In contrast to investigative and realistic people, social type are drawn more to seek close interpersonal relationships and are less apt to engage in intellectual or extensive physical activity.

... Assuming that a higher score means they think you're more suited to that role... HAHAHA! Nooooooo.

I don't particularly enjoy client facing work as compared to being off in the corner tinkering with something. It makes the day go past, and as long as the challenges they present are in themselves interesting I can do it happily enough. But I don't get off just on being social and I don't think I have many close relationships with anyone.

There's this self disclosure thing a lot of people do where they tell you about their lives and you're just left sitting there with nothing to say. There's nothing to do with the information - it's just there. "Someone close to me died" You feel a twinge of sympathy and make the appropriate Sad Face, but it's very much a 'and you're telling me why?' thing.

If I'm social, and aren't just jollying someone along, it tends to be as a means to an end - even if the end favours them - "Just the facts please Ma'am." kind of thing.

As a side topic:

How do you rate interest? Is it just that thing that consistently gives you more positive emotions than anything else?

If that's the case how many of us should just be Legend of Zelda scholars? :p

Plot twist: I'm totally not social. All those jobs would drive me nuts. Also I clicked everything but like 4 things in the "I can" section. I feel like most people can do 90%+ of the stuff there.

Also apparently I'm not artistic. MY DREAMS!!!

For a while I was considering social work, but the hours you have to put in to get the basic license is beyond ridiculous.

Librarian I wouldn't mind. At least people can't yell at you because they don't know how to search for things.

Librarian would actually be okay, especially if it was a backroom deal.
