The Birkman Test
I have a Physics degree, and I just dropped out of my Accounting class at community college. The professor recommended The Birkman Test to me as a way of figuring out what I want to do (or can do) with my life.

Has anyone taken it?
Has anyone heard anything about it?

I would take it just for shits and giggles, but it costs $475.

Any feedback is welcome.

I play CityVille, and I need you as my neighbor!
I need a job too, so that I can play CityVille less.

Go to your local unemployment office (not sure what they call it in the states). They'll give you a similar test for free. At least here in Canada they do. Can't hurt to try.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

RE: The Birkman Test
Tests like that seem like complete BS to me...it sounds similar to a test that the Air Force gives called the ASVAB. It is an aptitude test to find out what your interests are and applies them to jobs relating to those interests.

RE: The Birkman Test
My intuition tells me that it's bullshit, but if I find $475 lying on the street somewhere then I might give it a try.

I took a career test at an unemployment office a couple of years ago. Finance or art. I'm about as creative as a poptart, and I just quit accounting, so the validity of that particular test doesn't hold true for me.

I say that I'm as social as a poptart too.
They are nonsensical expressions, but I've been saying that since the first season of South Park.
