DO you wish you where assigned a job? (read description)

Posted by: o0jeannie0o

Would you rather live in a world where after high school you where assigned a job based on personality and aptitude test, assuming you would have to stay with this job or jail ( maybe an option of retest). Everyone would be paid the same.

  • I would prefer having my job assigned based on my skills

  • I prefer trial and error of my job if it means my freedom to choose.

  • It's not a perfect world. Productivity would decrease.

  • Obviously, a lot of this depends as to how accurate the test is, whether it really would work. As I can't even begin to imagine a test that good, I have to pick this one, even though the idea of getting jobs based on your merits sounds good (employers consider people that they resemble more to be better than employees that look different to them, regardless of skill sometimes.)

  • Assign yourself a job commie...

  • A right to choose is what makes the world go round. We are given free will as much as possible and I believe a career is something one should be greatly interested in so as to achieve their own happiness and possibly contribute back to society/ aiding humankind's advance. If even such things are predetermined I do believe most people will not be productive in their jobs and also there will be many instances of bias because somethings simply cannot be judged.

I'd go for yes if it seemed remotely possible that the test would actually work. As it is though, I doubt it could accurately send you to your ideal job. So I'm going to have to say no to that. Change the circumstances to the test actually being extremely accurate, and I'd pick Yes.

I think the test wouldn't consider your happiness.

It would quickly be class based. You are poor, here is a broom...
