Do you prefer to study the night sky or see what makes computers work? Rather mix chemicals together and see the results, or study about different kinds of rocks and learn what they're made of?

Whats your favorite science?

It's not necessarily that I love physics over all other sciences, but I seem to be a natural at it by comparison. According to the teachers I've had and work I've done, at least. Physics classwork was always easy compared to other kinds, and even when it seemed overly complicated at first, it made perfect sense with some basic explanation or clarifications. I guess there's a certain practicality to it that other sciences don't immediately have. Except maybe computer science, but I'm not "officially" educated in it to make a proper comparison.

Psychoanalysis. Sigmund Freud is my favorite intellectual - certainly my favorite psychologist. Other than that I really like the logician Ludwig Wittgenstein (especially his early work).

I suppose that counts. Our Intro to Psych professor always called it "the science of science." Though from what I understand, if you want to lean more toward the science side (B.S. degree or such) rather than the social side (B.A.), you'd be better off taking chemistry classes than counseling-related classes.

Well since you're putting astronomy into this list, clearly I HAVE to pick it :P

 

I have quite a love for this subject (if most people couldn't tell from that Astronomy topic I made a while back) and clearly it is the one subject I'm most fascinated in. I'm not entirely sure why, but I've always been so fascinated about what's out there in the universe.

 

So yeah, astronomy is my obvious pick lol

I'm a biochem major who's currently starting med school, so the answer should be obvious. I love all biology really, but especially molecular biology (how proteins interact, their 3D structure and function/regulation), gene regulation and DNA structure, and evolution (both on a broader scale like phylogeny and on the molecular level). Most of the stuff's on a scale where chemistry is relevant and necessary, but it's hardly pure chem, hence why I went with biochem.

After biology, I'd probably go with astronomy, which has always held my interest since I was super young. Geology (especially as related to both volcanoes and studies of the far past, geologic time and all) is also super interesting. I've been debating starting a thread on some of these topics, but I didn't think there'd be enough interest.

Actually, I have a MSc degree in psychology. Currently enrolled for a BA in philosophy, too. ...German universities - most of them - are marginalizing the importance of psychoanalysis though, sadly.

Ah right, you're from there. I know you said before, but I completely forgot.

 

Yeah, the field isn't exactly growing in the US either. At least, last I heard when I was in class. Actual extended problem solving is mostly being put aside for quick-fix meds, thus pharmacy is growing at the expense of practical mental and physical care disciplines.

I took AP Biology last semester, it was a lot of fun and really interesting. Although- it was pretty challenging. It convinced me to major in biology in college.

geology based on whats around my computer room

 

though not stratigraphy, i'm kind of awful at stratigraphy, can't even name the geologic eras in order if you asked me to.

Linguistics. I like understanding what people say and why they say it.

Most natural sciences tends to tickle my interest bone, such as biology, chemistry, physics, geology, and astronomy (which is often considered a subset of physics, I think).  What doesn't really interest me are many of the social sciences, such as psychology, sociology, humanities, and nearly anything in college that ends in the word "studies".  However, some social sciences that do interest me are history, anthropology, archaeology, pedagogy, and maybe to a limited extent: political science.  Many areas are considered sciences, but I think a lot of it (but probably not all of it) can be separated into either natural sciences or social sciences.

Well,since starting in September I'm off to study Physics, clearly my favourite is Geograph, right?
No, it's physics. Astronomy used to interest me lot, but from what I see it's one of those sciences which requires a lot of learning, observation, and not a lot of calculations. With a decent mathematical ability, and a hatred for memorisation, I have trouble with plain astronomy, and also biology. That's not to say I have no interest in those areas, but I could never formally study them.
That being said, Astrophysics is one of my favouritem parts of physics, so...

And, I am pretty sure astronomy is counted as a subset of physics, but I would not say a lack of knowledge here says anything about physics knowledge, just like capital cities is not really anything to do with learning geography. Seriously (getting into an unrelated rant here), it does annoy me when people ask, "what's the capital city of whatever country", and then try to use the fact that you studied geography of a couple years as an excuse for why you should know that. Just had to get that out there.

Anyway, it's physics.

I like computer science because if I were admin here I could use it to code a "dislike" button so I could dislike TS's post
