About This Quiz

You know you would be a great federal agent. You have a mind like a steel trap and can figure out complex puzzles easily. You look great in a suit, but you often dress down, so that you can fit in with the people around you. 

Figuring out complex puzzles is a piece of cake for you. You were one of the top students in your class in high school and were terrific in college.

Now all you need to do is figure out whether you should be in the CIA or the FBI. Well, as soon as you get all your household chores done. The FBI focuses on investigating crimes on American soil and also working in counterintelligence, while the CIA is all about gathering, processing, and analyzing national security information from around the world.
