Your Scientific score is not just about doing actual science, but also about how much you ask “Why?”. If you have a high Scientific score, you probably find it hard to take things at face value, and will do best in an environment where increasing understanding, in any area or topic, is important.

Some examples of how this might play out in real life:

  • When you are asked (or told) to do something, you probably ask “why”? To the other person this can seem like you are questioning their authority, but actually you really just need to know there is a reason before you act
  • In an academic or work setting, many of your most creative contributions will be because you noticed some phenomenon – and thought you had better work out why it was happening
  • Your choice of clubs or leisure activity probably involves increasing your own knowledge and the opportunity to contribute to the knowledge of others, e.g. Wildlife Trust, Astronomy Club etc

If your Scientific score is low, you are more likely to be able to take things on face value and take action on trust. You won’t want endless explanations about why something has to happen, just “tell me and let me get on with it…”

Those with a high scientific score may enjoy:

  • Astronomy
  • Cooking – it’s a lot like chemistry!
  • Collecting fossils
