Career aptitude tests are another form of interest surveys. They were either handed out at the guidance counselor's office or taken as a school wide test. The idea was that these questionnaires would help guide your future and offer advice on what career path would suit you best.
Out of all the types of surveys, this is one of the few where the results are fashioned for the individual taking the survey. Whether it is a career or romance the one thing you should do when taking these tests is be honest. Since the only one you'd be trying to fool is yourself.
