Too many people are mismatched with their jobs -- they have little chance of succeeding much less being happy. We've all seen this ~ the wallflower or socially awkward geek thrust into a sales job on the floor that requires them to go after customers aggressively ~ and they're deer in the headlights unlikely to last the day, while somewhere else a born extrovert feels trapped in a lonely quiet office but stays because of the benefit package. A lot of misery, incompetence, welfare & unemployment could be saved by seriously working on job matching instead of costly job training of people who don't have the personality, social skills or psychological makeup to succeed in those jobs no matter how well the training goes in terms of grades/tests
