Skills Evaluations
I'm sure you've done various aptitude tests, but have you ever completed a skills evaluation test? I took every aptitude test I could find and then found the Ball Aptitude Test which was the most accurate and definitive resource I've ever found. It takes about four hours on each of two days and the results take about two weeks to compile. You'll be amply rewarded by the discovery of what you are born to do with your life.
Ball Aptitude
DiSC®, the original research validated DiSC Personality Test behavioral assessment captures  strengths, provides clear guidance as to how to improve, and allows one to realize how others see them. An eye-opening experience, to say the least!
