this is the question: did you choose your current profession because it suited your attributes or did you develop certain tendencies BECAUSE of your job?

I chose my profession because i felt i had a natural affinity for it.
I feel the best way to judge whether you're making a correct decision for yourself careerwise is to pursue something that you'd do anyway, as a hobby, even if you wouldn't be paid for it.
Perhaps you end up choosing something that is initially not as lucrative as other professions, but your drive and natural interest will keep you working at it while others tire and become disenfranchised in higher paying, but less rewarding jobs.
Ultimately you will perservere, because you're doing what you love to do and always getting better at it - financial success generally follows you when you choose a profession in this manner......enough rambling.....

Not too many grad students on this thread huh?
I am, you guessed it, a graduate student. I study Russian and Japanese cultural history. Right now I am writing about Nikolai Kasatkin, a missionary who founded Orthodox Christianity in Japan. A little weird for me, since my interest in religion is almost non-existant. He was just an incredible guy, so it makes for intersting writing and research. The good thing about my "job" ('cause I do receive a salary after all...it is very different from undergrad) is that I get to travel to Japan. The bad part is that I get to travel to Russia (just kidding, I love Russia...in doses).

I'm an undergrad at the University of Oregon, studying Finance. Maybe I'll do law school when I graduate. Then do something else after that, who knows what though.

Seems we have a good number of architects, architects-to-be, and a few architect wanna-bes here in head-fi

Undergrad: Marketing. In my senior year and about to finish. I have no clue what a marketing dude does. Probably because I haven't got any expeirience ... stupid job market is in a slump

Learnt programming at a higher technical college of engineering (kinda programming/business mix branch) for 6 years (i liked 4th grade so much, I did it twice <notice sarcasm please>) and am halfway through my civil year now. so basically I'm a programmer, maybe I'm kinda right in getting a little bit more into it again. My life has been only parties and (psychedelic) drugs for half a year now and I don't see that ending anytime soon right now. So I'm kind of a freelance philosopher and artist at the moment. I might get a real job in half a year, not sure yet (partying, getting to know people, you know... :P.) I might also get into "pro"-gaming again (fps/rts probably).

There seem to be tons of programmers and architects around here... kinda strange, isn't it?

I am a Mechanical Engineer.

Originally I work for the Navy designing missiles at the Naval Weapons Center in China Lake Ca. After ten years there I went to work for Northrop as a project manager. Highlights of my time there include working on the B-2 Bomber before it came out of the black. I also worked on a system that was in the SR-71 Blackbird.

I now manage a group of software developers for Siemens.
