Yes, I’ve once again found myself wandering around the BBC webpage, reading articles and I came across the “What kind of thinker are you?” quiz. Supposedly it tells you the kind of things you think about and what kind career would suit that kind of thinking. And we all know how good careers tests, quizzes and predictions are – what the heck, lets take it!
Here’s my results:
You are a Naturalist Thinker
Like to understand the natural world, and the living beings that inhabit it
have an aptitude for communicating with animals
You try to understand patterns of life and natural forces
Like other Naturalist thinkers, Leonardo longed to spend time in the countryside. He spent hours watching birds to understand how they flew.
Other Naturalist thinkers include
Charles Darwin, Jane Goodall, Johnny Morris, David Attenborough
Careers which suit Naturalist thinkers include
Biologist, Meteorologist, Forester, Farmer, Astronomer, Alternative therapist
You are an Existential Thinker
Like to spend time thinking about philosophical issues such as “What is the meaning of life?”
Try to see beyond the ‘here and now’, and understand deeper meanings
consider moral and ethical implications of problems as well as practical solutions
Like existential thinkers, Leonardo questioned man’s role in the universe. Many of his paintings explored the relationship between man and God.
Other Existential Thinkers include
The Buddha, Gandhi, Plato, Socrates, Martin Luther King
Careers which suit Existential Thinkers include
Philosopher, Religious leader, Head of state, Artist, Writer
The top one being the most prominent.
Yes, I clearly think – a lot!
The career bit – actually suits me – well apart from the religious leader and alternative therapist, since I don’t believe in either of those (also is religious leader really a career?). Well Head of State – I have some great ideas but man – politics is just not a good place to be right now. But on the whole pretty accurate to what I’d go for. I’m impressed – okay not that impressed – since this is based on what you think about, and people tend to think about what they like doing – well it’s going to be at least 50% accurate.
So, although it gives accurate results – it really isn’t rocket science is it?
As for the rest, I’d switch the two around for that – I spend much more time thinking about morals!
Did you take this test? What were your results?
