Would You Rather Be an Architect or an Interior Designer?

i love to design rooms and make them feel like completely different places so that would probably be my preference. i think that being an architect could be fun but there's so much science and math that i'd be afraid that if a measurement was off the whole project would go bust.

To me they are two different questions. Which is cooler? and Which would you rather be. I think an Architect is cooler, but I'd rather be a interior designer.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.. so I kind of have to pick that one :P I currently work with interior designers though.

I would want to be an interior designer -- it's closer to graphic design, which is what I'm studying :-)

I'd love to be an architect. Interior design is becoming so DIY nowdays that it seems like anyone can do it, so it's losing it's "coolness" factor as a profession.
