Excellent - I shall name my next sim-spawn 007 and raise him/her to be a spy.

I still wonder though how being an Economics major prepares you for a life as a secret agent.

Plus a degree in accounting is one of the preferred degrees for FBI and Secret Service agents.

I take it from that list that the skillset required for the Intelligence career is {Mechanical, Charisma, Creativity} then.

It's Logic ( 9 ), Mechanical ( 8 ), and Cleaning ( 8 ).

Funny, I don't remember James Bond cleaning up the pools of blood after the unfortunate encounters with the baddies.

You'd be surprised how much information can be gleaned through an examination of accounting. Remember, everything costs money to run, and thus it will show up on the books somewhere.

Very similar to Medical then.

I find this... somewhat unsatisfactory. Had I been constructing the careers, every career path would have had a different set of required skills. Similarly with the Uni majors (Maths/Physics, Economics/History, I'm looking at you.)

Think of the Intelligence career as more Mission: Impossible rather than 007. They may not have cleaned up after dead baddies, but it takes clean precision to make their googa-mawhaits and the whirly-magigs.

Jelenedra clearly has an expert's grasp of the technical nature of the occupation.   Grin

007 Jolrei has been born in my game.  He is currently investigating his crib.  Occasionally, his mum lets him investigate what it's like to have a diaper changed.  We are obviously well on our way to a successful career as a spy.
