    Great results. Ironically, Sageofsixthpaths, the functions listed for you are the ones I got a degree for. It might be that I'm in the wrong field of work.. I still have to figure things out.
    Your profile fits with your current degree though. I've also been told that I fit in chemistry-related jobs because I have great attention to detail.

    I'm quite surprised from the varied results!

    Oh my, I didn't think anyone would have the same results as I did! Nicely done!
    Well, in any case, it's just a test.. It doesn't necessarily give professional and/or correct advice. There's no information on the correctness of this test.

    Because a test goes against your expectations, it isn't very good? Odd science.

    No but when a test goes directly against anything I know of myself and anything any other test of its type claims to know of me then it's quite probably not very good.

    That's slightly better science, no?
