Social and investigative "might suit my my interests and preferences". True: I'd like to work in projects (later on as project leader) in the field of psychology/research/engineering.

Artistic, Conventional and Social.

Well, I supose that's ok because art jobs would be my "dream job" (unfortunately only that!), and I like conventional "office" jobs because they're a very easy way to earn my payment. ;)

Not so sure about social jobs, though I do like to help people, I don't see myself doing it as a profession.

Artistic
Your results suggest that Artistic type work might suit your interests and preferences.
Artistic types are interested in creativity and art, preferring freedom and independence to following rules and procedures. Self-expression is very important to Artistic types and they may prefer to work alone. Typical roles for Artistic types include artist, singer, designer, photographer, musician, writer and actor.

Enterprising
Your results suggest that Enterprising type work might suit your interests and preferences.
Enterprising types like persuading and influencing people as well as controlling, managing and selling to them. They like to take a lead and are often quite motivated and ambitious but may be impatient and can find rules and detail frustrating. They tend to favour roles such as salesperson, manager, estate agent, supervisor, lawyer, advertising or marketing executive and often like positions that have status and prestige.

Journalist seems to slide nicely between both those types. :)

Considering my job is a mish-mash of marketing, design and teaching, I'd say I'm in the perfect job! :tmb:

This brief questionnaire can't tell you exactly what you should do. It only suggests work areas to think about that may match the way you like to work but it can't tell you whether you have the skills and qualifications for these jobs.

To take things further you should consult your local careers service or your local library. Use the right-hand navigation bars at the top of this page to find links to other careers sites.

Not very surprising.

I think you forgot to properly read the results... Those six are mentioned as all possible outcomes. Your actual scores are down below.

Unless of course you do really seem to like every possible job in the world. :p

i can't seem to see any other results :confused:

EDIT: it's rated artistic and investigate highest - which is good because i either want to be a animal cop investigator or doing something arty.
The rest were lower rated.
