Can Your Favorite Colors Reveal Your Career?

This quiz says so.

It's hard to know what to make of many of the career assessments out there. I leave accuracy up to the pros and largely measure based on brevity and interest. In those regards, here's a good one:

The Color Career Counselor, offered by Careerbuilder's CareerPath.com, quizzes you several times on your favorite colors and then analyzes your personality.

From Careerpath.com:

The Color Career Counselor is the world's first nonlanguage test to define occupational interests. It uses color preference to determine successful career paths. The test is based on the multi-patented Dewey Color System, which is the world's only scientifically validated color-based personality test - published in the North American Journal of Psychology.

I took the quiz yesterday and—while I'm fairly certain I changed my "favorite" more than once—it was surprisingly accurate.

It told me I'm a "creator" type. Apparently I need to express myself—often—and I value aesthetics, imagination and learning. (It also says I am impulsive and emotional, but much of those traits have been trained out of me. I think.)

As for my ideal occupations—Reporter makes the list! (As does editor; so boss, you better watch out.)
