Excuse me, I'm responding to the ad for the Head of State job? Here's my resume, including past dictatorships and other leadership experience...

I once took an aptitude test and it told me "spy". I was a bit miffed. The second time I took it it said nothing at all was suitable, and the third time it said "astronaut". Yeesh! I gave up on the whole aptitude concept and went with computer programming.

"spy"! LOL!

I would have thought you'd be pleased with "astronaut," though.

I was pleased with the idea, but I knew there was no way I'd get into the program. It was like being told I'd be good at "Olympic gold medalist".

Fortunately, computers have suited me pretty well.

So, since you're suited to a whole big bunch of things, what's your next career? :-)

Why wouldn't you have gotten into the program?

(I have the same reaction when I've gotten "artist" as a career choice. I mean, I'm OK at some artistic pursuits, but these career things never seem to measure motivation, which I haven't enough of to make a living at being an artist. At least so far.)

I think I have given up on the notion of "career." The only work that I think I'd be happy doing full-time is working with animals, but I'm not physically able to do it full-time. I keep noodling on stuff like zoologist, animal behaviorist, dog-trainer, etc., though.

As for other things, I'm open to making money doing them, but I don't want to get locked into doing them full-time, the way a career would require. (Mostly I make money via editing, which is part of the reason I wound up with so many kinds of knowledge - by carefully reading books on all those things.)

I think most of us (editors, I mean) are information junkies. Editing per se has never bored me, because I am always learning something. Some manuscripts have certainly been dull, but the job never is.

X-actly.

Which is why one of my LJ interests is "collecting other people's hobbies." (That is, reading about them, but not actually doing them.)
