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.

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.
