About This Quiz

People keep asking you from a pretty early age what you want to do with your life. What do you want to be when you grow up? What classes are you going to take in school? What's your major? Does anyone have the right answer to any of those questions? Not usually. It's a process! You don't know if you like something until you try it and you don't know if you're going to be good at anything until you find out for yourself. Some of us are just cut out for different kinds of jobs. Our brains work this way but not that way so this job is a good fit and that job isn't. Your brain is always leading you in fun, new directions. So do you think yours is heading more towards the FBI or towards being a fighter pilot?

Both an FBI agent and a fighter pilot can be fast-paced exciting jobs but there are some definite differences too. Is your brain ultra-high speed excitement? Or is it slow and methodical problem-solving? Are you in the clouds at breakneck speeds or on the ground observing every possible detail? How about we figure it out right here and now? Take the quiz and see!
