I'm dying to know how you answered the questions so that you got 'Vending Machine Servicer' at number 10.

You and me both....

Having looked at the questions, I've a feeling it's because you said you'd like to work with food and drink and you like to know how machines work...

Or Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner at number 6.

Sorry, but . . .

. . . I'm still worn out from responding to ladykatyjane's list, I'm not doing it again for you.

I will however comment that the job of a carpet cleaner is probably a lot harder when you're cleaning up after Klingons who like to party hearty. Even if you DO have one of those handy little stain-zapper tools.

I'm also wondering what Klingons would have in their vending machines . . .

Dead gagh.

Re: Sorry, but . . .

Except for the Klingon analog of Japan, which has vending machines that dispense all 51 types of fresh gagh.

Re: Sorry, but . . .

It's rather amusing when the mint gagh and the bloodwine gagh get to fighting in one of those.

This reminds me of taking a personality/career test in one of my college classes. The careers it recommended were all real careers (writer, scientist, librarian, clergyman, etc.) the jobs that were 'not suited for you' were all things like cashier, food service worker, etc. Didn't matter what personality category you fell into, they were all like that. Opposite personality types weren't told to try careers that their opposites were poorly suited for. I was told to the best careers for me were University Professor, Librarian, and Clergyman and to avoid Bus Driver, Cashier, and Food Service Worker. People with the opposite personality were told to go into Marketing & Advertising, Public Relations, etc.

Well, my top 10 for this test are:
1. Historian
2. Archivist
3. Computer Programmer
4. Computer Trainer
5. Computer Engineer
6. Multimedia Developer
7. Anthropologist
8. Professor
9. Business Systems Analyst
10. Writer

Not sure why Archivist is #2 but Librarian doesn't appear anywhere in my top 40.

Your list looks eerily similar to mine, only I didn't get potter. I wouldn't have minded that one, I actually really enjoy throwing clay around on a wheel...

I'm surprised they would even LIST vending machine servicer...

These can change over time -- back when I was in education at university (a year and a half ago), I had four different forms of teacher in my top five. Now that I've graduated and decided I don't want to be a teacher, I don't get it until #22.

But I have four forms of writing in my top ten (if you count "sign maker" as a form of writing). "Writer" comes in at #6.

Does this mean I'm the next KRAD???

I dunno, I think you should aspire to something worthwhile.... ;)
