    My parents used to say to me as a child..
    I would make a very good spy as I could
    listen to two conversations at once and
    still observe what was going on around me
    too....lol!!!!!

    I scared them because I could see right
    through most people and even as a young
    one would make huge observations that
    many would miss....:)

    What job do you think you would be good
    at that you never pursued...

    I think i could have been a

    Spy

    Dancer

    Singer

    Private Detective (catch all them
    cheating husbands and wives at it) :)

    Matchmaker

    I chose to be:

    healer and witch which also takes great
    powers of perception!!

    My ex husband said I would have made
    a good porn star.......but I wouldnt want
    all those dirty old men leering at me

    yuk!!!

    How about ye guys

    Proof reader, I would advise writers not to repeat themselves so often.

    Hmm..interesting question Scorpie.

    I think I would make a great voice over actor. People have always told me I have a great "radio" voice. I've done a few radio commercials and the voice over for a television commercial, but I always thought it would be fun to do it exclusively for a living.

    I also think I'd make a great comedian, although I realize making my students and friends laugh and making a cold audience laugh are two entirely different things.

    I treasure my sense of humor.

    Anything with animals but my personality profile denotes me needing the status of high remuneration. So I am leaving my current job as a PA and going into HR with psychometric evaluation. The human animal facinates me too.

    My psychological profile tells me I am suited for jobs where a high degree of abstract reasoning and interpreation is required along with a continual variety of tasks. In other words my profession of the last twenty-five years, computer analyst and project manager, suits me perfectly.

    My degree qualification is commerce (accounting), but I lasted at that all of two years at that before changing careers in what was the early days of information technology. As soon as I changed, I knew it was the job for me.

    I guess I am lucky that I enjoy what I do very much, and getting paid well for it is a bonus.

    It's strange the things you discover about yourself when it's too late to do anything about it?

    I'm happy that I did what I did, have no regrets and would never consider going back to change anything, even saving the world from wars and poverty.

    It is NEVER too late.....
    It is NEVER too late.....
    It is NEVER too late.....

    Unless

    a) you want it to be?
    b) you think it is
    c) you are a defeatist

    My father's friend is a great testament to that
    84 years of age...shagging two women and he
    is living a far more adventurous life than in all
    the years he was married.....

    And I don't mind a drink. The world seems to look a lot better through the bottom of a beer glass. I'm told that's a Pisces trait for some reason.

    Ooooh I'm on the list? ::waits in anticipation::

    The 'It's never to late' that you refer to is moving forward SS.

    The going back to decide 'What job' would you have done refers to past life?

    It's time for you to decide what you are asking in relation to the original question?

    my parents always said I would have made a good nun. LOL... I was a VERY VERY religious little kid.

    I'll be honest though I have no idea what job I would really be good at which is why I think I struggle so much in college right now. The job I WANT to do (be a dentist) my grades don't qualify me for but everyone says I'll be 'settling' if I don't go to dental school....How is it settling if I can't get in I wonder?

    My dream job would be to go on adventures with my horse, then come home and write up photo essays about them that make people feel like they were right there with me. Either that, or just write about erotic adventures that I have in my mind, and forget the pics. :lol

    Looking at life through the bottom of a pint
    glass hey......yes very Neptunian....escapism :)

    Oh I see you are 29....wonder if you have been
    through your Saturn return yet....people tend to
    do strange things between the ages of 28 and 29
    that they can later on in life regret...

    Its often at time of taking stock and then
    subsequently making wrong decisions if not
    aware....

    Like marriage...changing careers...life path...etc

    So be careful of what you are doing at this time!!

    Erm...

    Its never too late to do what you may
    have wanted to do as a younger person...

    I went back to college in my 30s to retrain
    for something I could have done in my
    teens but didnt....

    Who knows I may be the oldest spy in
    Ireland......if I want to be

    lol

    I wouldn't have a clue if I've been through a Saturn return yet or how to tell.

    In the last couple of years I have applied for jobs that would be total career changes but didn't get them. I am always on the lookout for different careers and better pay (isn't everybody?). I also ask myself whether I'm doing enough or I could be achieving more. I was once told I'd get restless in my job every 7 years or so. But nothing's changed for 9 years.

    Marriage has never been on the horizon.

    So in all no major changes to life path in the near future. But I do believe that the only things in life you regret are the things you didn't do. So who knows?

    I've been told that my ruthless streak will make for a great corporate career. On the flip side I've been told that because of the fact that I can be very cold at times that I could probably fit the profile of a hitman (not so sure how I feel about that one).

    Personally, I just want to get wealthy and then spend the rest of my life racing cars for fun ... maybe do a stint in the French Foreign Legion....
