Declaring a major should be a well thought out decision. Unfortunately, 18-year-olds and decisions are not a match made. Most of us declared a major based on our interests rather than an actual career goal or stable financial future. We can’t blame ourselves–just the backward system that forces children to make adult decisions.

The only silver lining is that when someone tells you their major it’s a clear insight into their personality—it’s comparable to a zodiac sign in that it’s a jump-off point to make all kinds of assumptions about likes, dislikes, and character traits.

Here are some of my assumptions about taste in film:
