"Sarah, Sally & Sue buy a boat" - Taking an abilities test
My youngest daughter convinced me to take an interest and ability inventory recently. I think she wants me to come out of retirement and get a job. She thinks my new habit of talking to total strangers in grocery stores is pathetic and shows I need more human interaction on a daily basis. That, and she’s tired of me saying, “Nope, that’s not in my retirement budget,” when she wants to flit off to Tahiti for the weekend.
The interest inventory was easy and it wasn’t a surprise. After all, if I don’t know what I’m interested in at this point in my life, I haven’t paid attention to anything during my waking hours!
The ability profile assessment took a bit longer than the interest. It was an online test. Six areas. No calculators, dictionaries, or help from others. Timed. No cheating.
I began. The little countdown clock at the bottom of the computer screen started ticking.
