I am probably asking a weird question most people haven't heard about. Or at least amongst my classmates and circle of acquaintances.

Has anyone heard about RIASEC? Or the RIASEC test? I took that and came up with this :

Your Score


Realistic FACTOR = 12
Investigative FACTOR = 20
Artistic FACTOR = 16
Social FACTOR = 4
Enterprising FACTOR = 10
Conventional FACTOR = 7

Your primary personality: Investigative

Investigative personalities like work activities that have to do with ideas and thinking more than with physical activity. They like to search for facts and figure out problems mentally rather than to persuade or lead people.

Your secondary personality: Artistic

Artistic personalities like work activities that deal with the artistic side of things, such as forms, designs, and patterns. They like self-expression in their work. They prefer settings where work can be done without following a clear set of rules.

Any recommendations or career options? Is this even accurate in the first place?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

You would be a pretty wild private investigator But it's the first time I've heard of it.

Spoiler for My results from the test:

I hadn't heard of it.... but I have to say I wouldn't put too much stock in it (and I'd be wary of any company that used it for hiring )

I might think more of it if the allowed answers were a bigger range and the questions didn't raise more questions. Half the questions lacked enough information to form a quick or easy answer.

More questionable is that it scored me Primary=artistic and secondary=social. Seriously offbase analysis ... considering most of my life has been happily engaged in science and engineering. The big problem with the questions are -- I would mark "like" for activities that involved solving problems. I like to solve problems, its why I do science and engineering. The test skewed "problem solving" off into occupational areas I have zero interest in (social work, movie production, etc).

Lets see.
Spoiler for Test Results:
As you can see it labeled me as both Conventional and Artistic. Going by their description I'm apparently some kind of crazy "very normal" person that both hates and likes rules. From what I can tell this must have been written by someone who spent too much time watching the Discovery channel and AnimalPlanet. All the questions seem to be very broad stroke and narrow minded. As far as I'm concerned the test is random drivel.

Funny that a number of career guidance books are written with this inside. Maybe I should stick to reading the Economics / Finance and Science sections after all.

Claymore has 26 episodes, no second series.
Sometimes anime series when based on manga series have an open ending with which they try and persuade the reader to continue reading the manga (cause the anime ended but the manga still continues, they persuade you to read on in the comics what happens next).
Some receive an adjusted ending which is not in the manga, but for a series as Claymore the manga continues where as the anime has ended.
More or less that way of making anime makes me think it is nothing more but a long, long, long commercial to buy the manga

Statistics question:

Why does the sign test omit tied scores?

First chapter of probability : because tied scores do not dictate any outcomes. Since the sign test is used to determine yes/no occurences only (for any basic statistical method for that matter), it omits tied scores.

To calculate tied scores, use multi-value logic (like fuzzy) instead of probabilistic logic. Tied scores are considered multi-value as there is more than one truth/lie value. On the other hand, it might not work since tied scores could also mean zero value - there is neither true nor false in the definition.

Question : Does importing pneumatic nailguns count as arms trafficking?

Okay, so, I am studying Japanese and French in my spare time for my own edification, but I'm thinking I might pick up a third one. What I'm wondering is if anyone has recommendations for languages that sound pleasing.

Keep in mind that I already have Latin firmly in hand, and having studied German have no wish to delve into it to that extent. I know some Spanish, but pursuing it to fluency is up for consideration.

So what else can people recommend to me?

Mandarin. English may be slowly dominating but you'd be surprised how many Chinese you'll find in the most unexpected of places.

For a similar reason, learning Spanish to fluency would be worth the effort. It's in widespread use.

Also, if you have a girlfriend, I recommend it for dirty talk.

Well, I find that there's an inherent beauty in the way languages are constructed, and I suppose it is a reaffirming thing to see that despite our many conflicts, human beings can cooperate so extensively as to create so many functional solutions to the problem of communication.

So I'm hearing Spanish and Mandarin. Any other recommendations? Remember that I'm mainly looking to hear about languages that you find pleasing to listen to. Practicality is certainly a bonus, but first and foremost I want something that feels and sounds good coming off the tongue.

Their main page says they'll be closing in a week's time, which sucks because I've been using the site for a long time.

The manga sites are being discussed in the manga subforum in a sticky thread if you want more information about events surrounding the various scanlation sites. I suspect this new stance from manga companies will only succeed if they provide better synchronization of english translation releases than they have. Otherwise, people will simply continue to scanlate and release via other internet protocols -- people want to read a manga within a reasonable time from its japanese release, not years later. People don't want to invest in a manga series only to have a jackass company like T*ky*p*p drop it into limbo with no explanation (e.g. ARIA, T. Moon Phase). One of the worst things in Japanese culture is to be considered unreliable, so certain US/western manga distributors should be on notice that this new game only works if they perform.

I don't want to be biased, but considering you have some Spanish and French in there, I think you should complete the circle and study Italian. Idk about me but many people I know love to hear it and always ask me to speak Italian even though they don't understand it for some reason.
