anyone ever taken these ? and I don't mean online. but say at a career placement office/with a career counselor. Do you think they were accurate? Did you take them into account when choosing your next job and how so? what were the names of the tests?

I had to take one for a careers class during school.

I thought it was somewhat accurate. I wouldn't rely on in though, and I plan on doing something else instead of my suggested career (which was something to do with computers).

Every single one I've taken has said I should be an architect. While I have my degree in Chemical Engineering, I actually would like to eventually get another degree in Architecture.

Yes.

And take them? I use them!

They can be useful but they are very much made for limited ranges of application.
