A Colour Guide to a Career

Have you seen this? This is the Color Career Counsellor! Apparently I'm a  {drum roll please}... Creator... which is a relief. I'm also:
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.
I think the thing that gave me greatest amusement is the type of workplace I'm suited to:
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.
... *sigh*. What's your career?

That was really cool! I am too a creator. Thank goodness! My second is a persuader. It is pretty much right on! Thanks for sharing!

Hrmmm. I fully expected it to say "conformist, reserved, unexpressive, stoic". Instead, I got this:

Nonconforming, Impulsive, Expressive, Romantic, Intuitive, Sensitive, and Emotional

So, either it tells everyone they are the same type (I got Creator with secondary Persuader traits too) or the same type of people are drawn to Lib's wonderful blog!

Good thing I'm currently working in Advertising / Web Design etc. :o)
