About This Quiz

Joining the Army would be a good decision for a lot of people, as would making it a career. The opportunities are endless once you join the Army. You can be trained in pretty much any profession you want, and it also shows prospective employers down the road that you're hard working, industrious, loyal, and that you never give up. It also shows people that you love your country and are willing to fight for the principles that you believe in. Still, there are a lot of people that the Army simply isn't right for. Some of us might have what it takes to be a good soldier, but it just doesn't fit how we think or how we live our lives.

What it really comes down to is our personalities. Some of us just don't function well when dealing with strict rules and authority. Some of us don't like to push ourselves physically, while others live for it. Then there is the group situation: Do you feel most comfortable when you're part of a group working towards a common goal? Or do you totally hate that? Take this quiz and we'll tell you whether you're cut out to make a career out of the Army.
