I'm coordinated enough to play musical instruments, but that's it.
    This might seem odd, but try FPS gaming. I've found that it really helps boost reflexes.

    I know this thread is old, but i'm reviving it.

    English- In elementary I sucked at reading so much that I had to have a tutor, but role playing on warrior cats sites gave me a reason to become better (I was 12 okay). Now reading is my life. In my current class I'm not that good at writing essays, but I do good on the discussions.

    Math- I hate it. It can be tolerable if I try and understand the concepts, but it's so boring and it goes by way too fast.

    Science- I love science. It can be difficult, but I'm willing to put in the extra effort to figure it out. It's kinda weird because I can actually enjoy math in physics, but I hate it in regular math classes. Maybe that's because the problems are simpler.

    History- It used to bore me because the teachers always gave us busy work, but I'm enjoying APUSH this year without busy work.

    I love my screenwriting class. I love analyzing films and writing stories. I don't plan on entering the filming field, but I think I can take what I learned and apply it to my own stories.
    I took film my sophomore year. I liked the film studies part, but didn't like actually filming it.

    I took an intro to agriculture class last year for some reason. It was the easiest class I have ever took, but it was so boring.
    Also took an outdoor and adventure class freshmen year. I was originally going to take web design, but that class got canceled. It was basically a PE class, but half the time we had a free day. I liked archery, but I sucked at it. I was surprisingly good at kayaking.

    The thing I hate most about school is how I have to put so much effort yet I only remember a few things from it. I wish I could study things on my own, but I don't have the self discipline for that.

    I suspect it is because you could see the purpose of the math, and relate it to something real.

    I have no intrinsic nor extrinsic motivation to learn in school, which makes all subjects difficult to learn now. Telling me to do something usually makes me less inclined to do it, since it makes what used to be an activity I enjoyed doing into an obligatory task... it ruins my own positive perceptions of that thing and replaces it with the idea of "work"... it's just not fun anymore. I may love Chemistry and enjoy learning it, but as soon as you tell me it's required I instantly hate Chemistry... I complained to my parents throughout Middle School that I wanted to learn everything by myself at home so I could feel motivated and accomplished by my efforts rather than feeling like I'm doing chores 24/7. Of course, when I do graduate to college this year I'll be much more focused and dedicated since I'll be more self-reliant and acting out of my own interest.


    BUTT.... I'll still answer the question the way you want it to be:


    Highschool-wise, my Easiest classes were Chem/AP Chem and Human Biology. Most difficult were Physics and Calculus.


    The thing both of my easiest classes had in common were:
    1. Grade based about 90% off Test grades.
    2. All Tests were weighted heavily.
    3. Human Biology's tests were mostly short answers with different possible perspectives one could take, and so as long as you backed up your answer with solid evidence and logical analysis, you'd be fine. I didn't even know most of the terms or theories but I could still make a plausible answer with faint glimpses of knowledge from days before I could piece together to form a solid argument. As for AP Chem... I just sorta knew how to do everything lol
    4. Both teachers were NTPs. :P

    That's probably right.

    I feel the most engaged when I'm learning and doing math, and now it is my major in college. It is English that has sometimes been the bane of my existence. I hate formal writing and being told what to write about, as these things require to be more focused on the structure of my writing and do not allow my thoughts to flow as freely. I either struggle to put my thoughts into words, or have to milk my brain for content just to meet certain criteria. It feels very forced. Similarly, it's like I'm dragging my feet whenever I have to pull some analysis out of my hat. Creative writing is a bit more enjoyable for me, although I wouldn't say I'm as naturally gifted at it as some people.

    Junior/High School:

    I liked math, science, and art classes the most. (math was my strongest on standardized tests, science second, english third, reading last)

    I was able to do well in all of my classes, but I disliked english/literature and history classes the most. And P.E. class made me really anxious; I was always good at the individual fitness-type aspects, but team sports 'scared' me, for lack of a better word.

    The english/literature dislike is kind of ironic, because I was always such an avid reader. But, I can't say I was naturally great at the way those classes were taught. (And I have never really liked poetry, lol)

    History has grown on me with age. Once out of school, I picked up some history books of my own accord to learn about a lot of that, and I enjoyed it. But in the school format I did not.

    -----------

    In college I liked my ecology and plant biology / general bio/genetics classes the most. I wasn't a fan of the anatomy and physiology side of things; though I did ok. It just didn't click with me the way ecology did. I did ok in chemistry, and I did well in college linear algebra and differential equations but I totally sucked at calc of several variables and college level physics. (only got a B's or C's due to the curve, otherwise I objectively failed miserably on the exams)

    Hate: Anything that has anything to do with reading and writing (especially writing), history, government, chemistry
    Like: Math (though I tended to not enjoy applied math like physics, etc.), biology, human related sciences

    Finally, a piece of evidence that does in fact prove that we are two separate entities and not the same person

    I'm the opposite--I liked reading/writing assignments more than math/science-related things.
