I wouldn't put a ton of weight on the tests themselves, but seek out something that excites you and that you will be good at, where your "passion and talents collide" as some radio host says. If you hate accounting but like numbers maybe FP&A or Mergers & Acquisitions?

Sales?

Be sure to check what your moon crystals align to also, since you are using nonsense to make life decisions!
