Aptitude Tests

QA177 QUESTION: How accurate is it to take an aptitude test to find out one’s talent?

ANSWER: It depends. If anyone accepts it because it comes out of a test, it is just almost like if someone tells you that you should do this and this, and even if it happens to be the right thing for you and it does not grow out of your own inner self-discovery, it will be rather meaningless.

So I do not suggest that this is a solution. If you have to be told of your talent rather than you know it, experience it, work at it, develop it, you’re still doing it compulsively rather than because of your selfhood, your self-discovery.
