There are some spirits that simply can’t be tamed, some souls too creative to be confined to the same routine day after day. If this sounds familiar, then take this quiz to find out if you’re just not made for a 9-to-5 office job, or if actually no one is made for a 9-to-5 office job.
Do you feel best when you’re free to move around as much as you want?

b. Like all people, I prefer the freedom of mobility.
Is the option to spend time outside important to you?
a. Perhaps I just have a unique relationship to nature, but like a flower on a mountaintop, I need sunshine and fresh air in order to flourish.
b. This is important for all humans.
Would you appreciate a schedule that allows you to make yourself a nice lunch at home, pick your kids up from school, and feasibly get eight hours of sleep?
a. In fact, these things do sound good to me. There must be something in my DNA that separates me from all these working stiffs.
b. Everyone should have this.
Do you want to speak your mind without fearing retribution or stifling of your perspective from unexamined workplace hierarchies?
a. Sorry average American, but that’s a yes from me.
b. Yeah, okay, I think we’re done here.

Mostly B’s: No one is made for a 9-to-5 office job! In fact, no one is “made” to work at all! Marvelous.
