Do you know yourself clearly? Do you want to know more about other people's personality? Look at the subjects you want to study in university.

If it's arts and sciences, you will probably be a teacher or researcher. Business administration means you want to make money. How about social sciences and medicine? Then you may want to serve society. If your choice is law, you will probably become a lawyer.

Your subjects can represent more than your interests and future career. They reveal your personality.

But sometimes people choose their subjects according to their status in society. In secondary school, most parents want their children to study science rather than the arts. In ancient China, arts subjects were more popular because arts teachers had a higher status in society. Nowadays, top students prefer medicine and law. Besides a good future and high salary, doctors and lawyers are respected by society. But beware, a person's choice of subjects does not always reveal his true character.
