Colin would be a great toymaker, or if he could make a living doing origami he's be great at that too!

I think my son would enjoy a factory line job (if there was a quiet one).  He thrives on sameness and repetition, rules.  Now if the line broke down for repairs, watch out!

 A lego building builder (say that 5 times really fast!) Would need to be one where he moved at his own pace without others telling him how to do it and touching it or starring at him while he built.

My son might be the guy to repair the broken line. He's very interested in the way things work, but a little too distracted for actual repairs right now--I'll give him a couple if years:)

The job I just left. My son is amazing at puzzles and basically I put components into circuit boards solder them in. Lol.

I already know what he's going to be: a computer guru.

Today he wiped our X-Box 360 clean so that he could take the data, put it on a memory stick, plug it into a computer, download a game on it from the computer, load it back into the X-Box 360 and play the game.

He has an IQ of 142, and I swear, he is always doing something that floors me.
