Their result for The Dream Job Test ...

The Race Car Driver

You're 60% career-driven and 70% ambitious. In addition, you play 50% well with others, and you need a job that keeps you in the limelight 54% of the time!

You like the thought crossing the finish line alone, in front of the rest of the pack, but you also like the thought of other people watching. Sure, there's a pit crew, and sponsors, and a whole support team under you, but you're the one who gets all the glory.

It's lonely at the top, and it takes a lot of work to get there. You don't want a job with normal working hours... no, you'd devote your life to this if it pays off in the end.

Good luck with your future endeavors. Once you go forward, I suspect you're not the type to look back.

Prefer to observe the speed limits when you drive? Try one of these (slightly) more realistic options:

Television News Anchor, Massage Therapist, Dancer, Novelist, College Professor, Military Officer, Simultaneous translator (i.e. one who translates in person, at meetings and such).
