Color Career Counselor

Here's something just for fun...

I took the Color Career Counselor test after reading about it in USA Today.  It was shockingly accurate for my first and second career options.  My results are below.  If you take the test, let me know if it was as accurate for you.

I'm a creator (an English teacher) and an organizer (um, hello, I have four kids! One has to be organized for that!). Heh.

I finally did this! It has been starred in my google reader forever.

AGAIN it says I should be an accountant or a financial analyst. I have been getting the same results (accountant) since I was in high school.
