I would be affirmative to stand with the first view that students should consider only their talents and interests when choosing a field of study. This view aligns optimally with my own experience in choice of major.

I didn’t have any interests or specific skills before entering the college. In the first year of college, Majoring in Chemistry and Material Engineering doesn’t trigger me a lot. The major which is selected based on my entering-college score. In the next year, I transferred to Computer Science because of my preference and imagination about the future. This movement made me realize that I didn’t want to study on Chemistry or Physical relevantly or do similar work in the future. The decision I made is such a milestone for me. The one which inspired me to find out what I’m truly interested in and want to put passion into.

In the conclusion, I think the most important thing is following my own heart to make the decision and pursue what I want. In addition, doing what I want could engender lots of passions, which could foster me to be a better and better person. Without passions, even though there is a high-paid job, it is really hard to do anything and do well. Furthermore, even though there are few available jobs in our field of study, I think be a person who can’t be supplanted  by any else could twist this dilemma.   

 This is why I stand for the first view.
