What Type Of Magic User Would You Be?

In the world Eric goes to, there are multiple types of magic users, each with their own way of doing things. And there's a lot of them. More than we originally think there are, that's for sure. So, if you could choose to be any one of them, which would it be?

For me, it would probably be magician. I would probably do better with a more structured environment that a stable education provides. With mundane things I can get a bit creative, but I just don't have a head for experimentation and trial and error and the like. It would probably go badly if I tried. So yeah, a good formal education to be a magician would be best for me I think.

This question got me thinking!

I think I would like to be a wizard. I like the idea of using arcane magic, and I don't think wizards have to do any kind of sacrifices - I wouldn't be able to handle that! Also, I don't mind studying and practicing daily spells in order to improve. Good question!

I think I would like the magic of a healer. Of course, as a nurse that appeals to me the most. How great that would be to be able to heal someone by just touching them, to be able to look inside the body. My favorite healing was when Eric healed the wounded eye, he was able to look inside and create a mirror image.

I think my special power would be mind reading and control, although do enough NLP training, and that's close to possible in real life.

I agree with need structure and education for myself too. That's why I would probably be a magician. Even when I cook, I need detailed instructions... I figure magic would be very much the same thing

In Eric's world I would definitely be a wizard. Think of it, the travel, being your own boss, free to work as you please. Although, I can see an upside for the magicians, but I don't think that's really my style.

I don't know if this is a 'magical' position or not, but I would love to be an Oracle :)

The idea of going to school to be a magician is foreign but interesting to me, as a modern woman. I would probably like to have spells that I could cast on my mother-in-law when she starts telling me all the things I'm doing wrong..... the cast would do nothing harmful, just make it so no one can hear her!

Although as a story teller I may improvise, when it comes to food prep I am a very good cook, but I usually follow a recipie. I do not have the talent of a chef. So depending on the amount of magical talent I have, I would be one or the other. Even if I had the talent for my own spells, I would still want to study at T the academy to learn the efficient spells.

The overall concept of recipes for spells is kind of intriguing.

I think I would be a wizard because I have a hard time getting into schools. lol. I probably wouldn't try to do anything serious though, just dabbling to make life easier.

I want to be a wizard as well. I'm not so good in school so improvising would do me good. Plus, its more unique that way. I'd probably just need a really good teacher/master.
