What I Learned About Myself

By completing these assignments I learned that most of the occupations I would like to do kept showing up. They were all a good match for what I want. I also learned that I'm an extravert, but I didn't think I was because sometimes I am more of an intravert. I also learned that I am mostly conventional.
