In grade nine or ten, in a class called Consumer Education, we all took a computerized aptitude test. About half of us, including me, were told we should pursue careers in air traffic control.
I’m terrible in crisis situations, so you should all be happy I didn’t take that computer’s advice.
And surely those programs must have improved by now.
Well, my 14-year-old daughter, known on this site as Silence, took her own computer aptitude test in health class yesterday. My tiny, book-loving daughter who most recently dreams of becoming a paediatrician. And what did the computer recommend?
A career in professional hunting and trapping.
Happy hunting, Silence.
