I found this neat Color Career Counselor on a ( turtle soup ) a blog I stumbled across the other day. I love quizzes - no matter what they are on - so of course, I took it. Sounds about right. I HATE repetitive activites. It's why I didn't do so well in school until college. All that repetitive homework. UGH. I'm not so sure I'd make a good Physicist though.
You should try it. Let me know if you think it was accurate with where you're at/where you'd like to be.
