About This Quiz

People often define themselves by their jobs. A lowly job can make one feel worthless. A well respected job can make you feel important. At the same time, it's possible to take tremendous pride in small jobs, and it is often the people who can do that who do best at the big jobs. There is a story about President Richard Nixon visiting NASA. As he was saying hello to everyone, he shook the hand of a man in a NASA uniform and asked him what he did. The man replied that he put men on the moon. He then walked away to do his job. When Nixon asked an aide what the man did, he was told the man was a janitor and just as essential to the operation as anyone there.

Jobs are about patterns, of course. Routines dominate every job. Being the sort of person who can handle those routines is essential to being a good fit in any profession. One needn't look any further for these signs than one's own life. The routines of your everyday life are enough to understand who you are and where your aptitudes lie. Tell us about your morning routine and we will deduce which unusual job is right for you.
