Finally! A career test that really understands me ...

It's What Should You Be When You Grow Up?, on testq.com, and here is the very item where it revealed its wisdom to me:

If your vacuum broke, you’d:

Take it apart
Buy a new one
Stop vacuuming

(The correct answer is, of course, the third. The other two items are there to check whether you’re paying attention.)

This site offers a tonne of “tests” like this one. Although I can’t speak for their reliability, validity, face validity, freedom from spelling mistakes—or any other measures of test quality for that matter I would say that they might have the benefit of making a client’s mental juices flow. Come to think of it the term “mental juices” might be a little dated itself but you know what I mean, right?
