Color Career Test

Working nights for five weeks does a number on the circadian rhythm!!! What do you do when you wake up at 2:30 AM and cannot get back to sleep? Tonight, I studied a bit, watched part three of the excellent Masterpiece Classic presentation of "Emma", and surfed the web. I'm more prone to take online tests in the middle of the night! Anyway, have you read about the non-verbal personality test using colors?

It's called the Dewey Color Test. If you take it, answer the question asked. Don't pick your favorite color, pick the one you most prefer to look at...

This is a short test, but I think worked pretty well for me. As expected, the top two options have a bit of built-in conflict...

Best Occupational Category



Independent, Self-Motivated, Reserved, Introspective, Analytical, and Curious

e investigative types gather information, analyze and interpret data, and inquire to uncover new facts. They have a strong scientific orientation, enjoy academic or research environments and prefer self-reliant jobs. Dislikes are group projects, selling, and repetitive activities.

Task-oriented careers where you can become absorbed in the job, be original and creative, and not conform to rigid company rules will work best for you. Unstructured organizations, for example, that allow you to sail your own ship are vital.

Suggested Researcher workplaces are universities and colleges, home office positions, medical facilities, computer-related industries, scientific foundations and think tanks, research firms, and design laboratories.

2nd Best Occupational Category

You're a CREATOR


Nonconforming, Impulsive, Expressive, Romantic, Intuitive, Sensitive, and Emotional

These original types place a high value on aesthetic qualities and have a great need for self-expression. They enjoy working independently, being creative, using their imagination, and constantly learning something new. Fields of interest are art, drama, music, and writing or whether they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas.

I am a physician first and then a writer, and will probably end up in academics... go figure.
