    Default I think I would have liked to be a.......

    For me it’s a dentist. I know, not too lofty but I think I would have been a good one. I just never believed I could get through the schooling. I’m not stupid but I never had the confidence building or ever realized that I could in fact get through the science and biology. I’m a new home builder and have been for just about my entire adult life. There were a few side tracks into sales and one good weekend in porn but other than that just a home builder. What about you?

    The only thing I was good at in school was art. Lucky for me, I went to a 4-year art college, and spent a career as a graphic design manager for a large corporation. I retired at age 55, and have a lot of hobbies. None have anything to do with art.

    ^^^ Yes but what would you have liked to be was the question

    Edit: if the OP don't mind, I would also add "who" since some peoples had it so much easier, which was easier for me than write what Hefner was lol

    An architect following in the footsteps of the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright, Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, IM Pei et al. Architects have to be able to use both the creative side of their brain and logic/calculator side of their brain. I could do the mechanical drawing; I just never had that "Artist's Eye". I love using Google Earth to go look at architecture all over the world, especially some of the great stuff in Europe - both from centuries ago and today's beyond modern stuff. That creativity just blows me away.
    Since I couldn't cut it in the school of Architecture as an architect, I moved sideways into Construction Management building things like chemical plants, refineries, oil shale, Syn fuels and power plants.

    Perhaps what I should’ve asked was what was or is your profession and what other profession would you have preferred or think you may have enjoyed doing or being

    Ok then, a magazine publisher like Hugh Hefner and have as much or more success
    Impossible to do today with internet, and a generation lacking testosterone but back in the days it would've been possible

    Supreme Court justice. The job is for life, you don't work all that much and you get to piss off liberals across the nation.
