The best paying trainee position does not necessarily equate to the highest paying job in the future. Avoid being pigeon holed in your training, and remember that the right training and experience is far more valuable than a short term gain in remuneration which, will be relatively minor in the grand scheme of things.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.
