The Dewey Color System® is now the world's most accurate career testing instrument.
This report based on your personality traits indicates your two most enjoyable day-day-day occupation skills. It’s a summary of the full report, the Color Leadership Evaluation 5.0.

“Studies indicate workplace enjoyment is the key to success. So as you read, consider only “Was I mostly having fun at work?” Disregard your present and past employer’s environment.

Interesting. I based my answers on the on screen colors than then the what I normal of those colors being. Magenta and gold are way off. Anyway, Part 1 is near total bull. None of the first careers are ones I would or could do. Part 2 is a long more on the money. It vague enough that you will see yourself in the results, not specific enough to have any real meaning.

Interesting. I worked as a graphic artist and photographer prior to getting into law enforcement. I have a double major in Spanish and history. I like to research things. I teach in our Academy. The test results are kind of spooky!
