WHich subject reading/homework do you enjoy doing? Do you like research, running experiments, analyzing data, working closely with others, working by yourself? Do you prefer working with your hands or your brains--or both? Are you easily bored--do you need new experiences or new info to stay focused/interested/excited? Do you like creating new things, new ideas, meeting new people? Do you love any of the arts--and do you have art talent? When someone's injured or sick, are you the one who rushes in to help? Do you like organizing complex efforts? Do you like or dislike telling others what to do?

I'm a jack of all trades type who prefers to deal with information rather than people or things, prefers a changing environment, prefers to work as part of a group effort but do my actual work mostly alone and not have a lot of meetings, don't enjoy telling people what to do--in fact dislike hierarchy, somewhat creative but not enough to make a living in the arts, not enough stamina and not social enough to stand in front of a class all day, don't enjoy a high-stress environment, kinda squeamish about blood and stuff. Technical writing and editing worked for me. Analyze yourself.
