Marguerite Krupp mentioned:

an abbess.

To which John Garison replied:

took one of those aptitude tests to tell me where I should
apply my liberal education. The result: I'd make a hell of a
preacher. As I asked the person administering said test,
yes, but what do you do if you lack faith? Fake it?

and then John teased her:
>Back to you, Mother Superior.

In 1974 (yup, "74"), I took several of career-aptitude
tests, including the MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indictor). I
repeated that test 10 years later on a weekend retreat built
around it, and got the same result. In 1990, I took it
again as part of our pre-marital counseling. Same result.
I'm an ENFP. I'm WAY HIGH on the Extrovert scale, which
anybody I know can tell you. So, it's definitely built into
me to answer those questions the same way throughout my
We all do everyday!

I just finished chairing on a major mountain biking event to raise money for
cancer research. Had to learn about mountain bikes, figure out what made
bikers tick, design flyers, brochures, and organize a lot of people into a
team, plan milestones, follow up, and evaluate results. Lots of great
lessons in motivation, audience analysis, and management styles. It was way
cool-despite the second degree sunburn!
