About This Quiz

Whether you are avidly in touch with parts of your past life, or you are simply wondering how you managed to make ends meet back then, we have developed a reverse-career-counseling quiz that will tell you all you need to know. After you share your personality traits, your work ethic and your on-the-job experiences with us, we'll pair you with the job that helped make you who you are. Without even realizing it, your past-life jobs have helped shape the worker you are today! 

For the purpose of this quiz, we are not going to target any specific era to find out which job you held. Instead, we are going to ask you all about your day, how you feel about your boss and how you would handle things if you were in charge. Once you tell us how you feel, we'll pick up on the past life job that has lent its experiences to your current title. 

You could have been a cowboy driving the steer home through the driving snow, or you could have been a banker with a stiff upper lip. When we tally up your answers, we'll know how you paid the piper in your past life! Are you ready to find out?
