Career Testing

I recently took one of those tests that supposedly helps you find your dream career, or at least points you in the right direction. My results were interesting. According to this test, I'm a precisionist, resistant to change, and prefer tasks over people. I'm compliant. This was a little disappointing. I had hoped that my results would be a bit more colorful! I've settled at the fact that the precisionist is true, but resistant to change, false. No more than three things are still the same as they were for me a year ago. Everything else has changed, and dramatically. This change excites me, because I've been offered the chance to start over, which is not a privilege afforded to everyone.
Back to the results, do I prefer tasks over people? It depends on the task, and it depends on the people. Some people I can't help but prefer over any task, no matter how exciting. Can I combine them so I'm accomplishing a task with people?
I am happy to mention that nearly every job that has fallen into the "dream" category was on the list of potential career matches. This included Criminal Investigator, Writer, Buyer/Purchaser, Interior Designer, and Architect! From here, it's working hard to get where I want to be, so I'm constantly thinking, writing, and working toward doing something I consider an interesting and worthwhile career. Ah, the twenties. So much to figure out and so little time!
