Miss Tate Was Right.

I found “>this over at Denny’s place. Although my undergraduate major was not English (psychology was) and my graduate degree (before law school) was in psychobiology, these results reminded me of the time when I was a freshman in high school and had taken a battery of apptitude tests. Miss Tate, my counselor, said “Jim, you can be anything you want to be, … except an engineer”. I don’t know that I could have been anything I wanted, but she was sure as hell right about the engineering thing.

I still can’t mentally fold those damned boxes, and calculus made my hair scream with pain, damned near gave me an ulcer, and buckled my knees..

You scored as English. You should be an English major! Your passion lies in writing and expressing yourself creatively, and you hate it when you are inhibited from doing so. Pursue that interest of yours!

  4. English as well. There was not a choice for History Major, or I am sure I would have scored that. I was an English minor as an undergrad.

    Thank God you and I are here to protect the world from the Engineers!

    Pretty accurate actually (I’m a SW engineer). I just wish they had an ‘astronaut’ category. :-( BTW – Their HTML sucks…
