According to the Navy - Who I Am

I registered on the US Air Force and Navy websites to learn more about opportunities they offer.  Growing up, I said that if I ever went into the military I would join the Air Force...  But looking at their officer ranks, it's so similar to the Marines and Army.  Superficially, the Navy ranks look more chic.  (I'm so bad, I know ha ha.)  You know what, I think I'm slightly biased and influenced from an early age due to watching "Gilligan's Island" - such an awesome show!  Anyway, I took a quiz because, even in my age, I'm not sure where I'm headed.  This quiz seemed to capture me better than all those social whatever sites with personality quizzes.

Your Who I Am Results


You’re down with the team. You’ll do whatever it takes.
You’re into mellow. You like it when you have time to sort things out and figure out the best way to get it done.
You want to taste it, touch it, see it and experience it all. Now.
You have a brain and you use it. You read books without pictures in them. You want to go to school, get ahead and do it right.
There’s one person you can always count on — you. You do it best on your own. Nothing’s wrong with teams, they’re just not your thing.
You like living on the edge. Snowboarding. rollerblading and mountain biking… you’re down with extreme sports and anything that gives you a thrill.
No surprises. That’s what you’re about. You like knowing ahead of time what’s going to happen and what’s expected of you.
The people you work with are more than the people you work with — they’re your family.
