Color Career Counselor

Jeanee at Dirty Laundry posted about this quiz from careerpath.com. I thought it's interestingm and the result it gave me seems pretty accurate in my situation. Looks like I am on the right career path. Here is my result; what is yours? :)

These original types place a high value on aesthetic qualities and have a great need for self-expression.

Fields of interest are art, drama, music, and writing or places where they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas.

That was a fun quiz. By some coincidence, my report was exactly the same. That did make me a little doubtful about this tool I must say. Ha ha!

Thanks for sharing.

that was weird, mine couldn't have been any more wrong! I'm the complete opposite to an organizer!

OK, now I've read the comments above I wonder if there's anything other than creative or organizer! I came out as the same as you but in reverse: Organizer first and Creator second... which I thought summed me up pretty well. Anyway, have posted it on my blog too and linked back to you... thanks it was fun! Going to have a go at the other colour quiz via Dirty Laundry!

I had the same result! I think it is accurate, I am creative, but organized.
