Silicon-Valley superstar/rockstar/billionaire Vinod Khosla (his brother is a professor at Stanford, I believe) has provided an infusion of Venture Capital to an interesting and very different career-oriented website called Pymetrics; which actually provides some very interesting interactive tests to evaluate skills, traits, talents, etc.

I learned that I have a high degree of skepticism, am very undeterred by my own mistakes, and am rarely side-railed by distractions.  Here is my profile:;.

Vinod Khosla often has his finger on the pulse of exciting new frontiers, and I have been fortunate to make multiple placements at his portfolio companies.  This particular venture strikes me as being possibly lucrative, definitely fun for the user, and also foreward-thinking.  The idea of using neuro-science and tests of cognitive ability/traits to assess job potentials is quite worthwhile.

Still, I find it a little strange that Egon-Zehnder Search Firm seems to think I am a match for their "Seasonal Analyst" position.  Honestly, I don't analyze seasons, so this seems to be a mismatch. Nonetheless, very interesting.
