I have held my tongue and almost let it slip last night in the chat room. The next time a newbie logs into the chat room wanting to know about joining the appraisal profession, I am going to raise my brutally honest answers to the next level. They almost invariably answer all the experienced appraisers questions with "I love a challenge!" What, do they tell people this the correct answer for any question regarding employment? From now on, I am going to answer that remark with, "If you love a challenge, what happened to all your success at your last job? If you failed at that, you will never make it as an appraiser!"
