Do I fit the role or does the role fit me?

I got a request for recruitment by email. And as usual the recruiter has determined that I fit a certain role very well. In this case and as always there are no consideration whether the role fits me. The recruiter asked me:

I believe that your profile matches the requirements for this role. And I´am contacting you to hear if this role is consistent with your background, and if so, are you interested to be presented to my client?

and my response:

It is indeed true that my profile matches this role. Also important to figure out is if the role matches me. (A thing recruiters seldom consider.) And in this case (as with a large number of similar requests over the years) it does not. Going from freelancing to being an employed gun for hire is not tempting at all.
