"You could take an aptitude test. Then we'd know what you're good at."

"Do you have any memories of telling others what to do?"

"I don't think so. I hadn't thought of taking a test... I guess I was wondering where help was needed and not what I'd be good at. What if what I'm good at isn't needed because there are lots of people already doing it who are better?"

"Then we'll know you're totally redundant. But what if you're good at something we need? You won't know either way unless you try."

"I should go do that as soon as we're done here then, thanks for the recommendation."

"What, I don't get to see the results? Let me know -- I'm curious"

Yuria keeps up her talk. She works with the 3D printers that keep everyone on the ship getting the things they need, and is currently designing tools for investigating the life on the planet.

Jane is fascinated by this, and wonders if she might be able to do something like that too. During lulls will ask computer "when and where might I take an aptitude test?"

They chat for quite some time.

There are several aptitude tests. Yuria offers to find the "Deepest One" for her. It will take some time to complete, but its essentially just a VR room that asks questions are receives answers.

She is confused about the meaning of "deepest" but will follow Yuria's suggestion, assuming she has more experience in knowing the value of these tests.

The test starts off by asking her some binary questions about if she'd prefer one option or a different one. As she's answering them, the screens in the room start playing a busy street in the background. After this plays for a while, it changes to a park with a wide open lawn and children on a playground in the background. Next is complete darkness.

The test starts digging into what she already knows. The first big surprise is that she is fluent in Arabic. And Greek. And she knows a lot of history. The test requests to switch into "qualifications mode"

*probably unsettled by large amounts of people, whether driving cars or playing on equipment*

Guess she didn't remember the history until she was asked about it?

*wonders what this qualifies her for*
