Careers by Colors?

I was a little skeptical at first, but I appreciate and am captured by psychological theory of color, so I wanted to try it. I was just perusing the Internet (which if you haven't figured out yet, I do often and find a lot of interesting things, medical or not.) and I came to a career-oriented web page that has a link to CareerPath's Color Counselor. I'm also starting to look for a job, so I thought this would be appropriate to try and a good use of my time. Turns out my color choices match me with the career that I am heading towards! At least I'm on the right track, now I just need to get one when I graduate. Take a look at my results below:

Best Occupational Category
You're a CREATOR


Nonconforming, Impulsive, Expressive, Romantic, Intuitive, Sensitive, and Emotional

These original types place a high value on aesthetic qualities and have a great need for self-expression. They enjoy working independently, being creative, using their imagination, and constantly learning something new. Fields of interest are art, drama, music, and writing or places where they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas.

Suggested careers are Advertising Executive, Architect, Web Designer, Creative Director, Public Relations, Fine or Commercial Artist, Interior Decorator, Lawyer, Librarian, Musician, Reporter, Art Teacher, Broadcaster, Technical Writer, English Teacher, Architect, Photographer, Medical Illustrator, Corporate Trainer, Author, Editor, Landscape Architect, Exhibit Builder, and Package Designer.

Consider workplaces where you can create and improve beauty and aesthetic qualities. Unstructured, flexible organizations that allow self-expression work best with your free-spirited nature.

Suggested Creator workplaces are advertising, public relations, and interior decorating firms; artistic studios, theaters and concert halls; institutions that teach crafts, universities, music, and dance schools. Other workplaces to consider are art institutes, museums, libraries, and galleries.
