Differentiating Amongst STEM Interests

STEM = science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Did you know that there's a free, on-line instrument that attempts to measure the levels of interest in some fields in this category of occupations? To give you an idea of what kind of results you can obtain here's what I got:
Mathematics4.70
Engineering3.91
Physical Sciences2.83
Information Technology2.75
Life Sciences1.60
At this stage of my life nothing here came as a surprise. As usual, though, it was interesting to see it in black-and-white and, having it in this form makes it all easier to question too.

The main shortcoming that was apparent to me in the instrument was the absence of items relating to the social sciences.
