How did you do?
- Mostly a’s
You’re destined to achieve great things. And play golf. And have your socks arranged carefully in colour order in your wardrobe.
Ideal job: Tax inspector.
- Mostly b’s
You’re practical, resourceful and normal (well, as normal as anyone can be who wants to work in agriculture!)
Ideal job: Farmer.
- Mostly c’s
Routine is a problem. Work is a problem. Drink is a problem.
Ideal job: Tramp.
