I tried that test a few months back and liked it. It was quick an easy. I also recommend regularly trying a Myers-Briggs test or something similar, to help you define career direction.

Result...


Vijay, your true talent is in Science and Technology

You have a number of attributes that make you an excellent candidate for a science or technology-related career. Your ability to think in terms of facts, figures, and numbers combined with the ability to 'think outside of the box' help you find ways to improve just about anything.

You are constantly looking for the next big intellectual challenge, so seeking a career that can keep you stimulated is key. If you are NOT currently in a field that gives you the challenge that you need, it's likely that you're not living your life's purpose. Until you get yourself back on track, the life you dream of may never arrive.

What exactly does this 'dream job' look like? The answer lies in the combination of visions that you have for each of your 5-second lives. If you can find a way to creatively combine the various attributes of each of your dream lifetimes into one career in this lifetime, you'll be well on your way to fulfilling your heart's desire.

yes, that's (except for the name of course) exactly what I got.

I've written an application like this once. Created an answer from a set of lines in a database table based on a number of questions with about half the questions not being taken into account at all and the rest each leading to one line being pulled from the database

All answers of course came down to "contact our office nearest to you, we'll be happy to help you further"

The only reliable way to validate a personality test is to give it to some people, lock up the results unseen, evaluate the test subjects in writing 5 or 10 years later, and then compare the written predictions to the written assessments.

When it comes to career recommendations, I don't think this has ever been done.

Instead of wasting your time on a career IQ test, you should take the latest sex IQ test in Cosmopolitan magazine. You won't learn any more but you'll have much more fun.
