I noticed that they separated out careers that don't really separate out.

Yeah, I'm not too enamored of their classifications or their questions, really.

Mine were pretty much what you'd expect: professor, lawyer, politican, historian, etc. The ones I liked best were comedian (A), archivist (A), insurance claims adjustor (A), casting director (A), video game developer (C) and special effects technician (C).
