Changing majors might help, but then again, I have known several people who just wander about university going from major to major, because they never want to delve deeply into a subject. It is a good feeling have epiphany after epiphany in an introductory class, but then the hard work begins.
I kind of feel bad for some of my students. I come in with a big beard in my tie dye and they probably think I am going to be talking about some feel good hippie love philosophy and that I will grade super easy. Then I start talking about necessary and sufficient conditions, compatabilism, and Cartesian Dualism. Then they get their first papers back. I am actually fairly conservative when it comes to teaching. You have to get papers in on time, I grade on a curve, so your raw scores are not going to look very good, and we never have class outside; it is just too distracting.
