I did a little career matchmaker quiz based on interests and here is what I got (top 10):

1.Biological Tech

2.Stationary Engineer

3.Heating, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration Tech

4.Race Car Mechanic

5.Appliance Repairer

6.Aircraft Mechanic

7.Diesel Mechanic

8.Automobile Mechanic

9.Small Engine Mechanic

10.Motorcycle Mechanic

Number 1 was very close to my former career. Though I'd like to think of myself more of a thinker and not JUST a tech.

What is with all the mechanic stuff? I guess it must be because I really enjoyed learning how the equipment I worked with as a scientist worked. In fact there was one high tech machine I was kind of "in charge of". If it ever broke or if anyone had problems or needed a lesson on how to use it, I'd drop everything and come running. I really enjoyed getting to know the ins and outs of the machine. Kind of the same reason I like biology. I'm intrigued about how living systems work.

Anyway, I doubt I'd cut it as a mechanic! Though an aircraft or race car mechanic sounds kind of interesting.

Well, it certainly is an amazing list of career ideas even if they aren't something you want to pursue. I should try this sort of evaluation and see what would result.
