    I agree with your choices when it comes down to it but wish I could somehow have a dentist nearby (after a few years there is a good chance we'd develop dental problems).

    I see you asked the same question here:

    -warrior/tactician, defensive purposes.
    -theologian, Preacher for Church, and educator of the Word.
    -educator, is knowledgeable in certain areas. educates children.
    -hunter, Can get meat on the table without raining ammo like Rambo :-p
    -farmer, Can grow food efficiently
    -doctor. Can hopefully keep the ill alive and treat the wounded.
    -handyman, can maintain what we have, and build what we need.


    -body-builder, likely has a dependancy on drugs, making him a threat and unreliable.

    A doctor would have basic knowledge though

    Now that's an interesting question. Based on what kind of SHTF there's 2 options basically. Either you bug-in/out (both cases you eventually are staying on a secured location) or you are constantly on the move. The 'team' i chose is slightly favored towards being on the move. I think even with a very secured BOL one might eventually be forced to move out (looters overwhelming or climate changes/radiation zones (for example)) and you can end up being on the move for quite a long time. Having a good balanced group is essential then, since you can't maintain a large group on the move. Finding a suited vehicle and then keeping it moving would be an ideal situation, in the worst case you have a long walk ahead..

    Made the list and added some comments between the ()

    Wich i'd like around me:
    5)warrior/tactician/policeman/military (combined warrior with police and added some army dude. either one of them will be fine for protection. combined with decent tactical and survival training this is a must have. they also can provide weapons wich aren't as common over here compared to the USA)
    8)hunter (being expectedly on the move, i chose hunter over farmer. with no place yet to start over and grow your own food, it would be better to have an experienced hunter/tracker to get a meal going on for the group)
    11)auto mechanic (the first 5 years i expect gas to be somewhat available and cars and parts will be widely spread so keeping a car up and running should be doable with the right technician, i expect to be on the move for a while)
    17)doctor (i'm assuming most doctors have a basic idea how to handle dental problems aswell so the doctor gets in and the dentist can be fed to the zombies)
    24)handyman - knows plumbing/welding/carpentry/electricity (duh, a handyman is usually a very skilled and versatile member of the group, used to fix anything with anything.)

    Definately not with me:
    2)body builder (muscle isn't usefull when the brain doesn't know what to do with it )
    6)theologian (god no...)
    13)lawyer (no more law has the advantage that there's no more lawyer either)
    15)businessman (i prefer someone who actually has some skills instead of being good at talking)
    22)weatherman (i can look outside to see what kind of weather it is)

    Yes, it is a good question for those who want to think the problem as they say. I also recognized your name.

    I will only take my family and eventually good friends with me, regarding less what their occupation is or was and what their skils are. It will be a challenge to develop as much as kills as possible. To have a handyman will definitely be my number one if I had a choice . Further I like people who can live from the land (hunting, fishing, farming) and medical person. But if not, we will do it with the people we have.

    The list is really a black and white thing. For example a farmer in Spain is also a very good weatherman. They know exactly how the local climate works. So the best thing is to have people with multiple skills.

    In my situation I will have some older people as well. So someone with medical skills would be nice to have in the group. I don't want to exclude people by occupation.

    I agree with with [MENTION=2684]FincaInSpanje[/MENTION] the list does not actually presents anyone's reality.

    Most men and some women in our group have either combat experience, had combat training, or at least experience using fire-arms or other weapons.
    Preacher has farming, butchering, hunting and fire-arm experience.
    Carpenter handyman has combat experience and is very knowledgeable.
    pre-school teacher can cook, butcher and is currently learning fire-arms and archery.
    Business man expirienced in fire-arms and has advanced medical skill.
    Builder has combat experience and knowledgeable in communications

    All in all we actually have the skills i put on my want-list and more.
    We aim to have everyone learn basic skills, and learn defensive/offensive skills.

    I think my choises would be made on character instead of occupation. I don't want any hotheads in my group (shouting/fighting all the time), no nervous breakdowns (crying all the time), no religious fanatics (praying and preaching all the time), and I would probably think of some more in time.

    The composition of my group would depent on the kind of shtf (a flood is different from a foreign occupation, or a virus) and how many people are left. If possible I would prefer to stay in one place, and then you'll need a farmer, if you are on the run for 5 years, you don't need a farmer at all (supposing he/she had no other qualities at all) Supposing you are occupied by a foreign nation, a translater might be of great importance.
