    Name some normal jobs you believe would be perfectly capable of doing (talent and skill wise) but you think would make you miserable if you had to do it as a career.

    For me:
    Accountant (Sorry. Boring)
    Countryside farmer
    Scientist at the Blood bank (did that for work experience for a day... boring as)

    Tiler, painter.

    Perfectly capable of capably being perfect at both - but could never go back to doing it full time.

    A human cannon ball. But I don't want to get fired again.

    A masseur but I sometimes rub people the wrong way.

    Actually as a Chiropractic student I had a casual job giving massages to clients at a Chiropractor's practise.

    Firstly... I would never want to do that full time (too hard on the hands). Secondly as a young student, I got a bit taken advantage of by clients...

    Well just recently I was getting my back rubbed by an attractive physiotherapist.

    I was laying on the table with my face in that cut out section when all of a sudden she told me to roll onto my back!

    I said " I can't, you're gonna hit me with that spoon over there on the table lol."

    I guess it goes both ways... After doing the Blackmores half marathon you can get a free massage. You have a choice as to who gives you the massage. So I go and seek out the most attractive guys....

    I reckon a hotel room cleaner would be the pits for me. But I would get good at making beds and efficient at cleaning. :)

    Cashier... fun for 1 shift... but dunno long term. Suppose it would not be the most fun job.

    How did you get research scientist?

    My other degree is in science and I (kind of) free load on the research lab during my last year of uni. Perfectly capable of doing all the procedures, research papers etc. but not being able to see tangible results for years would do my head in. If you deal with animals, no holiday as they need to be fed everyday. I like practical science, not the research part.
