    Shobia Career Quiz

    I like this one a lot. 25 questions. It's been very accurate for me and my friends. Don't be afraid to hit "maybe".

    This means you like hands-on work that involves using equipment and machines in an intelligent fashion.

    You probably want a job that combines using your hands and your mind like being an engineer or a technologist.
    i don't even know, but i am practical, and like solving complex problems and doing stuff with my hands...?

    i wanna do art, though.

    were the "building relationships" questions considered artistic? i remember it asking like two questions pertaining to art/creativity...

    and i agree that being analytical helps in art and creative stuff.

    I only saw 2 or so art related questions, and I disliked one of them.

    I think they just assume that an artist would dislike most everything.

    Maybe it's more concerned with what you don't like than what you do like.

    i pressed "like" on probably most of the machinery, talking-about-what-you-know, keeping-up-to-date, analyzing etc. whatever stuff, which probably skews towards practical instead of artistic on this test. now that i think about it, it's definitely a false dichotomy. i happen to like a lot of things, and i wanna do everything. it's true.

    it's just like... how do you build/make stuff for creative purposes or any purpose without understanding machinery or technology, or having an interest in the physical nature and chemistry of objects, environments and building? even if you're a painter, you don't simply think a painting into existence. do you even know how to mix a color? you need to know your tools.

    some of the things on my list do seem interesting to me, but i lack the background to really know what most of them are about.
