If you could take a genetic test to discover what things you’d be best at, would you want to take it or just find out for yourself over time?

- Whatever I think
Sure. I’d try that. Why not? It would be helpful before college.
Hm, I think I might want to take that test. But, if it told me something I didn’t want to hear, I would insist the test was inaccurate, irrelevant, and stupid. And a conspiracy against conservatives.
Yeah I would probably take it… especially early in life… it would definitely help before college. But what if one is not good at ANYTHING???!!!
Surely someone would have to be good at something Lucy. You’d sure hope so anyway. It could prove to be pretty embarrassing if someone wasn’t.
I think you’d have to be a turnip to find that you weren’t good at ANYTHING!! And even turnips are good for stewing!
I would take that test, yes… especially, as the conversation seems to be going, in the early years. But I would insist (now, looking back, and taking the temp of the current social trends) that it took place during the early high school years.
That would be early enough to give you a good start on a career, but late enough that you had a childhood, in case there are insane parents out there who took the test results and ‘ran’ with them.
And it would also allow you to be old enough to look at the results and say, “Nuclear Physicist??? Are you KIDDING ME???” and go on to achieve your dream of being the best Rodeo Clown the West has ever seen.
I like Laura’s answer!
Sure I would love to take it.
Oh, I fogot to ask. This IS FREE under the new Health Care Bill right?
Everything’s free under the new health care bill. Unless you have a job. Then you pay double.
I don’t know if I’d take it. Sure, genetics plays a big part in what we can accomplish, but your mind is an even bigger part. A positive attitude and self determination can push you farther than you ever thought possible. I think Laura makes a good point that even though you may be great at something, if you don’t love it and it makes you happy there’s no point in doing it.
I think you will find our where you good in yourself. Especially now these day, that parents are focussed on their children and stimulate them to do what they like and be best in. form myself, I definitely would had want to have a test like that. It would encourage me to be confident in what I am good in, I think.
