What sort of career would suit my personality?
I just did one of those online profilers, and it told me I'm a Support Driver [Supporter Driver (SD) Supporter Drivers are persistent and inquisitive people who are also determined, assertive, logical, direct, deliberate, probing, factual and sometimes defiant. They apply a comprehensive and thorough approach to the analysis and evaluation of problems without becoming emotional. The management style of this person is based on logic, facts and structure. They lead others by knowledge and not by persuasion. They seek a challenging but secure environment where they can achieve independently or with a small highly skilled team. They are best suited to jobs where thorough and objective study/analysis is required. Duties should include organisation and planning.] Apart from that, I'm currently studying at university (Chemistry, with minors in international studies, engineering/physics and arts/liberal arts/humanities). I think I'm looking for examples of specific roles, something to look forward to beyond the whole graduate recruit/research assistant/lab monkey thing. If you're actually employed in a relevant industry, tell me a little about what you do, how you feel about the work, and how good the pay is. Thankyou so much.
