    I was wondering if anyone here would know of a job that would be perfect for someone like me. I'm a bit lost in life right now, and not sure what I want to do. I also know a lot of jobs get lost under the radar.

    The reason I post this here is because I think freelance work (or maybe forming my own business, who knows) is 'for me'. You guys have experience so I think you're best to give advice.

    I'll list some things and if you could suggest something that'd be swell. I'm doing my own research at the same time to help myself.

    - I'm (very) independent
    - Adventurous (Like, explorer adventurous - want to travel)
    - Very good at analysing and giving meaning to data/text
    - I want to learn everything I possibly can, don't want to be doing the same task everyday (that's maddening)
    - Don't particularly care about pay
    - I'm great at graphic and web design
    - Super creative
    - Love planning things, love generating ideas

    Buuuut...
    - I'm not very stable
    - Make really rash decisions
    - Want to do my own thing
    - Don't want to be told what to do

    Unfortunately I don't think I'd like to be a doctor, lots of death in that profession.

    And I don't like the legal system enough to be a part of it. But thanks for your input.

    Take a personality test ( http://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test ) and then look at the jobs it says you are suited for. Tends to be pretty accurate.

    Wow! That is accurate, it guessed pretty much everything about me including the profession I want to go into. OP definitely should try it.
