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?

All men are frauds. The only difference between them is that some admit it. I myself deny it.

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.

And take them? I use them!

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