Deb’s House Concerts
I enjoy taking tests that can only have positive results. Who wouldn’t? Hmmm. I suppose some people don’t want to be bothered. But, I think it’s fun.
What Colors Do You Most Enjoy Viewing?
Don’t think of the colors you like to wear. Think of what you like to see. Which colors feel right to you when you’re looking at them?
Color Career Counselor
I’ve done this test before. But, I don’t remember what answers I picked. I just did it again, just for the fun of it.
Where Am I Right Now?
I don’t mean “Where am I in my career?” I mean “Where am I physically?” I’m sitting on a sun porch in the early morning. It’s almost 7:30am. The house next door blocks the direct rays of the morning sun, but it’s bright out today. I’m in a recliner, with my feet up. And, I’m looking out into the back yard where the sun is shining on the grass, and my big dog is alternately lounging and racing towards things he finds interesting.
Why Am I Here?
I had an exhausting weekend. As it turned out, Saturday began for me about 4:00am, after 5 or 6 hours sleep. And, Sunday began after Saturday never ended. I only slept about 45 minutes before my day began on Sunday. This was not due to any physical problem keeping me awake. And, it was not my preference. By 5:30pm Sunday, I was home again and in my bed. By 6:30pm Sunday, I was gone.
Deep Sleep and Coming Back to Life
How tired was I? I was so tired, I fell asleep while talking on the phone after I lay down last night. Then, I slept hard for four hours until I was awakened by dogs barking (my dogs I’d left in the back yard!). I let the dogs in, and then went back to sleep, and I slept hard until 5:30am when I heard barking again. By that time, I’d been sleeping for eleven hours. That seemed like a good start towards recovering from being awake for more than twenty-four hours. So, I stayed up.
School Teachers and Romance
At 5:53am, I called a friend who teaches middle school kids. I thought she’d be on her way out the door to school. Ooops! Her clock was set for 6:00am, but she was cool about it. She thanked me for waking her. Then, she proceeded to tell me about her new love interest. I think she’s found ‘the one’, because the call lasted for 57 minutes! 🙂
I Enjoy Taking Little Tests That Can Only Have Positive Results
Okay, back to that color test. After the phone call, I turned on the computer and did my usual email check and scan of web sites. On one of the sites, I clicked the button for “What Color Do You Like?”
I Probably Should Have Majored In Psychology
I really enjoy things that help people understand themselves and others. I think it’s so cool that we’re all so different and so similar (a repeating theme for me!).
Self-Discovery and ‘Aha!’ Moments
I thinks it’s pretty amazing and wonderful that there are so many individual differences in people that there can be thousands of different needs in the word, and jobs people can do to fill those needs, and there are people who want to do those things. Maybe I should be a career counselor. I really enjoy the process of discovery. And, I also enjoy being present for the moment when others have that ‘aha!’ moment.
What About the Color Career Counselor?
I took it again just now, just for fun. I don’t remember what the results were in the past. I think I probably selected similar colors, for the most part, but with a few differences.
Is This A Paid Advertisement for the Color Career Counselor??? No!No!No!
They probably should pay me for advertising for them! 😉 But this really is a free post. I just like little personality and self-discovery tests. And, this one is fun and easy to take.
What My Color Preferences Say About Me
Today, the results were right on target … in a general sort of way! 😉 I don’t agree with every single word it says. But, I agree generally.
Here’s what they said about me:
Best Occupational Category
You’re a CREATOR
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.
You’re a SOCIAL MANAGER
Fields of interest are instructing, helping, nurturing, care giving and instructing-especially young people. They discuss and consider feelings in order to solve problems, lead, direct, persuade, guide, organize and enlighten others.
[UPDATE: I took it a few hours later. It still said CREATOR is my number one place. But, it changed my second label. The second fits, too.]
2nd Best Occupational Category
You’re a RESEARCHER
Independent, Self-Motivated, Reserved, Introspective, Analytical, and Curious
These investigative types gather information, analyze and interpret data, and inquire to uncover new facts. They have a strong scientific orientation, enjoy academic or research environments and prefer self-reliant jobs. Dislikes are group projects, selling, and repetitive activities.
Maybe They’ll Correctly Assess Your Best Career Options, Too
Maybe they’ll be on target for you, too. 🙂 The test is really fun and easy. Just remember, it’s not about the colors you like to wear, your car color, or how you’ve decorated your house.
Which Color Do You Like Most? Least?
Just look at each group of colors and select a color based on what they ask. “Which color do you like MOST?” and, “Which color do you like LEAST?” And, at the end, they’ll have you rank an entire page of colors, from the ones you like most to the ones you like least.
Sit and Stare for a Moment
With each page, I just sat and looked at the colors. I tried to push away thoughts like, “What do I like best?” and “What is usually my favorite color?” and “Do I really like that one better than that one?” I just looked and picked. I tried to just let it be a gut feeling kind of decision process. Hmmm. I guess it worked! 😉
