In Nature’s Colors

My little sis recently posted a link to a “color career counselor” quiz that “uses color preference to determine successful career paths.” Hilariously, my results appear to be dead-on in how I’m characterized:

Best Occupational Category
You’re a CREATOR
Keywords: 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.

2nd Best Occupational Category
You’re a SOCIAL MANAGER
Keywords: Tactful, Cooperative, Generous, Understanding, Insightful, Friendly, and Cheerful

This very social type enjoys working in groups, sharing responsibilities, and being the center of attention. Fields of interest are instructing, helping, nurturing, care giving and instructing-especially young people. They discuss and consider feelings in order to solve problems, lead, direct, persuade, guide, organize and enlighten others.

It’s a bit eerie, though the skeptic in me wants to think it’s probably more coincidence than the “world’s most accurate career testing instrument” (which is the website’s pitch to get you to buy the full report of your colorology career path).

Despite my sister’s results lining up pretty close to her personality, Jerry took the test and somehow managed to get the EXACT OPPOSITE personality results of who he is. This test pegged him as an “organizer” and “doer” — someone who is systematic and good with machines and tools. (hahahaha, he’ll always be my philosopher Luddite!)

The whole quiz reminded me of this scene from A Mighty Wind:

Take the quiz and experience for yourself the POWER! of color in your career choice. Or something.
