People like to post a lot of pseudo-scientific shit here, so I figured I'd make a strengths and weakness thread.

I'm a specialist in the field of biology, psychology, and human geography. Though, I haven't finished all my classes.
I'm great at math.
I'm good at English.
I know quite a bit about some science shit in general.

I don't know jack shit about history, different types of animals, mythology, philosophy, and entertainment.

I'd like to learn about American history, world history, philosophy, engineering, business, art history, and mythology.

I'm amazing at math, very good at philosophy, quite good at mythology / theology, good at chemistry, alright at Chinese and Greek history, poor at American and World history, bad at biology, and awful at English.

I'm okay in most subjects. Language Arts comes really easy to me and require the least effort. Math is probably my worst. I can do it if I really put some effort but it can be intimidating sometimes and I end up losing myself.

I'm good at anything that requires memorization but shit when it comes to understanding equations/mechanics.

I'm very interested in calculus and physics. Have you taken any of those? What are those classes like in your opinion? Is Greek mythology worth it? Is philosophy worth it?

I used to be great at maths (I took a perfect 10 - maximum grade - at the highschool graduating exam) and overall in all the subjects I have studied in highschool (I used to be one of those "top students").

But after finishing higschool I've become a shut-in, and I kept being a NEET for 2 years. Eventually, my parents "suggested" I should go to university which led to me being a freshman right now.

However, it goes without saying that during those 2 years of being a shut in, my interests have drastically changed. I've become too lazy and ignorant to care about improving my knowledge and what not.

I know you're pointing to my thread motherfucker ; _ ;

Still, any subject that involves abstract thinking seems to sit well with me. Not maths, though, fuck maths. I can't focus on those numbers so I make the stupidest mistakes in math.

I'm very interested in calculus and physics. Have you taken any of those? What are those classes like in your opinion? Is Greek mythology worth it? Is philosophy worth it?

Calc is interesting because you get access to a lot of new "tools", as my calculus teacher described them, in learning about mathematics. I haven't taken a physics course for long enough to confidently tell you about it, but I will say that from the little college level physics I did take it is pretty unlike most other thing in math for me. It felt a lot more conceptual than the rest of math. I really enjoy calculus because it's another core part of mathematics, and physics seems alright. Whether or not simply taking Greek mythology or philosophy is worth it is up to you, but I wouldn't recommend majoring in anything along those lines if you want any sort of decent job.

I'm surprised you like calculus more than physics. It seems all the nerds in my high school are more hyped about taking physics. I plan to dual-major in biology and engineering and then dual-major again in engineering and physics. Philosophy and Greek mythology would just be classes I'd take at a community college over summer.

Well, it's more that I have more experience in Calc than physics. A LOT more. Maybe if I spent a lot more time taking physics I would like physics more. As for why most people favor physics, well physics gets jobs and calc doesn't. I would say go for it and take Philosophy over the summer, but for Greek mythology I think waiting a little bit to see what you feel of it is probably better. In any intro to philosophy course you will learn a lot about Greek mythology (though more so ancient Greece in general) because the philosophers of Athens were basically the grandfathers of all modern philosophy. So I'd see how I feel about what I pick up about Greek mythology from philosophy before making my decision, if I were you.

I'm good at anything that relates to my field (pharmacy), including biochemistry, pharmacology, pharmaceutics, physiology, and pharmacotherapy.

I also know quite a bit about history (mainly East Asian and Ancient Roman) and music, being a singer/pianist.

I'm pretty bad at anything math or physics related, except for statistics and probability. I don't know much about the social sciences (minus psychology and history), fine arts, finance, and business.
