Color Career Counselor

I'll be taking career counseling tests until I die. Does that indicate a career path?

At, your color tastes are analyzed by: My results:
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.

Suggested careers are Advertising Executive, Architect, Web Designer, Creative Director, Public Relations, Fine or Commercial Artist, Interior Decorator, Lawyer, Librarian, Musician, Reporter, Art Teacher, Broadcaster, Technical Writer, English Teacher, Architect, Photographer, Medical Illustrator, Corporate Trainer, Author, Editor, Landscape Architect, Exhibit Builder, and Package Designer.

Consider workplaces where you can create and improve beauty and aesthetic qualities. Unstructured, flexible organizations that allow self-expression work best with your free-spirited nature.

Suggested Creator workplaces are advertising, public relations, and interior decorating firms; artistic studios, theaters and concert halls; institutions that teach crafts, universities, music, and dance schools. Other workplaces to consider are art institutes, museums, libraries, and galleries.

2nd Best Occupational Category
Keywords: Witty, Competitive, Sociable, Talkative, Ambitious, Argumentative, and Aggressive

These enterprising types sell, persuade, and lead others. Positions of leadership, power, and status are usually their ultimate goal. Persuasive people like to take financial and interpersonal risks and to participate in competitive activities. They enjoy working with others inside organizations to accomplish goals and achieve economic success.

And then the Color Career Indicator 4.0 lists my "most fun careers." I would have to purchase the full report. Some of the ones they do disclose make sense, others confuse me...

Among the logical are Education Administrator, Middleschool Teacher, Office Manager, Administrative Assistant, Social Worker, Academic/Vocational Counselor, and Interior Designer.

Surprising but true are Firefighter, Coach, Truck Driver, Financial Manager, and Carpenter.

And then the you've-got-to-be-kidding-me ones are Customer Service Rep (sounds like a downer), EMT (getting panicky thinking about it), Stock Broker (hello, Wallstreet), and Retail Salesperson (*gagging on memories*).

What I've learned from this is that there are still a million different jobs and any one of them could be great or horrible and someone just needs to tell me what to do (for free). Keep making stuff until people start buying it, you say? Awesome, thanks.
