Your Favorite Colors Say Something About Career Choices?

According to BellaSugar, your favorite colors might not suit your skin tone, but CareerBuilder says if you follow the colors you're drawn to they'll tell you something about your career choices. They've launched the Color Career Counselor, a free online color-based personality test based on the Dewey Color System. The colors you like and dislike say something about the challenges you favor and those you avoid, therefore indicating career compatibility.

I'm pretty skeptical about the claims that color preferences can be interpreted to discover which careers are most suitable — and am even more suspicious because they ask your current occupation before generating answers — but my results were certainly interesting. See what my color test told me when you

.

According to the Color Career Counselor, my best occupational category is "Creator." The fields of interest happen to include "writing or places where they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas," and suggested occupations include writer and editor. The second best occupational category that came up was something that doesn't appeal to me at all — it suggested fields of interest like care-giving and instructing young people, which hasn't ever been my forte.

What do you think of this color career counseling idea? If you take the test (it takes two minutes) I'd love to hear about your own results in the comments!

My test results are really off the mark. I am a very organized person but I absolutely despise anything involving math. You couldn't pay me to deal with large sums of data for hours on end...I'd fall asleep or start doodling pictures all over it. I'm a slightly neurotic artist with the attention span of a goldfish for anything that lacks aesthetics or creative process.

I got creator/persuader. Those are definitely way off base, lol. I'm not a creative person, and all of the jobs they listed wouldn't work well for me at all. As for persuader... Yeah, that's no good either. Not accurate at all, IMO.

I got the ORGANIZER/PERSUADER combo too. The organizer was dead on but I wouldn't have guessed persuader. After reading it though, I can see how it might apply to me.

Creator/Organizer. That fits my current career and the career I'd like to go into. I'm still incredibly skeptical about how color choices affect your job outlook though.

I cannot make it work...no matter where or how often I click on one spot or another. What am I supposed to do? or am I not fit for any job?

My results could not have been more wrong. Maybe because I only picked the colors I liked based on how they looked on the screen.

This was 100 percent accurate for me. I'm an organizer/doer which is all you need to be when you are an engineer.

Sorry, I don't trust these kinds of tests. Like others have said, they're based on popular results during surveys (or at least I think so).
