This may have occurred to many, where one finds himself unsure as to whether he truly loves science or something else. I'm facing a duality of pure memorization-to-get-good-grades as opposed to true understanding. This bores me to such a level that description is impossible. The further I (academically) progress in science, the more often I notice that one does not need intelligence to do great, one needs only to memorize the whole book. Anyway, how did you figure out what you wanted to study? Why didn't you choose psychology? Surely you very much disliked some or most parts of a year/semester/area... Specific details would be VERY appreciated. A little information about myself: I love mathematics, and I self-study maths and read various types of books on my free time. I love understanding, and I despise rote learning and memorization (Biology, chemistry...-_-).. Thank you very much. Edit: The end of the semester is nearing, and thus why I have the opportunity to switch from pure sciences to anything I'd like, anything hopefully harder (ironically), or more interesting. I'd very much enjoy career suggestions, tips, or just why I'm plainly mistaken in doing this, haha.
