    An interesting survey – hard to choose one answer for some questions as more apply – I think science is to inspire, improve the world and try to answer questions about it.

    Interesting idea. Rather linear, often many answers appropriate, with different degrees of interest. Would be better to score multiple items and then list say top three by degree of applicability. Appreciate that would complicate the dialogue. For me its to find answers, change the world and create wonder and interest.

    I agree that it was sometimes hard to choose a single answer.

    Wow. Thanks for this quiz. I got “developer scientist”
    I’m the type of person that likes to take already existing things and put them together into something that is helpful, convenient, efficient, etc. No use starting from scratch when all of the research or products are out there, just need to make them easily accessible for others. And no need to wait on others to do something when I can research about it myself and get it done. I’m excited to find out more about this field. Thanks again ^_^

    Thank you for making this test that reassures my aspiration and passion to become a developer/investigator scientist, in fact I am just a uni first-year student studying Biomed but I hope I can persist in and work my way to becoming this kind of scientist one day in the future.
