I think my favorite would be physics. Why? Because I'm not good at it... so it challenges me quite a bit. I like challenging things, especially when it comes to stuff I am required to do for some reason or another.

Other than that, I would have to say geology; and if you consider it a science like my school does, then psychology as well.

I chose linguistics and physics; both are absolutely fascinating to me (in very different ways, of course.)

I chose biology, but to be more specific I'd say microbiology.

I selected biology, psychology, and anthropology (i.e. neuroanthropology) as well as health/medicine, as I do intend to be a physician.

Why those first three? Academically speaking, my interests are primarily invested in neurophilosophy (my major); subjects that are relevant to both the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind are of the most concern to me - specifically, neuroethics.

I was very tempted to select linguistics, but I suppose that's more of something I'd like to explore/study rather than something I actually have [explored].

Definitely Astronomy. But more specifically astrophysics. I find the universe so incredibly interesting. Cosmos by Carl Sagan changed my life.

Earth science!
I don't feel like I want to explain why... just not in the mood.... mmmm.. so I won't. But Earth science is awesome, mkay.

Chemistry has always appealed to me; every facet of the subject is amazing and has no trouble hooking me.

Well, I couldn't pick one...

Chemistry-- I loved it in high school, so I took it again when I got to college, even though it had nothing to do with my major. Still loved it!

Computer science-- Took an intro class my freshman year of college, ADORED it and was weirdly good at it. Considered double majoring but then decided programming is way too detail oriented and repetitive and my ENFPness would override any ability to succeed.

Math-- I used to be a math major, so obviously I love math. But again, the repetition and details got to me.

Physics-- Incredibly interesting, and also math-based. Loooove.

Biology (neuroscience, genetics), cosmology, maths (the core to it all, really), linguistics and I would love to get into IT and understand technology more.
I like several, but astronomy, linguistics, and physics are my favourites.

I am also really interested in paleobiology, but that wasn't an option.
Sociology and genetics.

I have an interest in communication of people. And both of these are useful in that goal.
Biology, Chemistry and Physics. They just fascinate me.

Neuroscience is my favorite, but that was not listed. The human brain shares complexity with mother nature, only one is the master of the other.
