I've bolded the ones I've done in the past and the ones I think I have a decent chance of doing in the future, and italicized the ones that, although I don't think I will actually do them, I think I would likely enjoy.

I think I'm probably in the right field.

I get the feeling it doesn't really know about technical fields that aren't engineering :) Otherwise, I'd feel obligated to be slightly insulted; I mean, I probably wouldn't mind being an agricultural research scientist, but who wants to be an agricultural engineer? And how did nothing at all like teaching make the list? Bah.

The job I actually hold (high school teacher) is #25 on the list. And #40 is something called "Genetic Counselor," which I can only guess at. Is it like "based on your genes, your baby is likely to be ugly"?

I think it's interesting that it pegs me as doing ESL and stuff. It never asked me if I know or have any interest in learning a foreign language. And I don't.
I just took it. Working with kids ahoy!
