Got this from Shih Ying's blog. I did the 'test' twice, and got the same result both times.

You Should Get a PhD in Liberal Arts (like political science, literature, or philosophy)

You're a great thinker and a true philosopher.
You'd make a talented professor or writer.

These were the questions, followed by my answers (out of a multiple choice of six answers) in the first and second cases.

Q: What's your ideal internship?
A1: Working for a cause you feel strongly about
A2: Helping a professor do research

Q: Of these, what's your best subject in school?
A1: English
A2: English

Q: When it comes to work, you'd like:
A1: To spend more time thinking than working
A2: Helping people

Q: In class, you tend to be the one who:
A1: Has a different spin on ideas
A2: Has a different spin on ideas

Q: In your opinion, college is a time to:
A1: Discover something you're really interested in
A2: Experiment and express yourself

Q: You could never study something that:
A1: Had you sitting behind a desk all day
A2: Had you sitting behind a desk all day

I suppose it's due to my rather radical nature where school and studies are concerned. Indeed, I believe I would love philosophy, but when it comes to career, English Literature is still much closer to my heart.

If I had changed my best subject to Biology (which is my second best subject; my highest marks always come from English), and kept the others fairly same (i.e. either A1 or A2 answers), it would have resulted in a 'Doctor of Medicine.' Well, well... not far off the mark indeed!
