    That's "aptitude", not attitude!

    I'm trying to take a series of six aptitude tests. I've done two so far ("Business" and "Clerical") and found out what I already know. When I take the Numerical and Mechanical, I bet I'll find out even more about what I DON'T know.

    Anyway, if you've taken an aptitude test, has it rung true to what you're really good at, or what you are doing with your life now?

    I took one - it told me I should be a counselor for drug addicts. No one even bothered to notice that with my personality I would have killed someone for being hard headed (I am a former addict) and not quitting. I would SUCK at that job.

    Now I am an Office Manager for a transit authority....

    I've taken many different tests over the years and most have been right on. They've said I should be a writer, teacher, public speaker, somewhere in communications, all along that line.

    Yes, I've taken a few aptitude tests (high school, college, business), which MOSTLY rang true. Of course, very few things completely assess who and what you are.
