"Remain about constant in your love of science" wasn't an option, so I went with "more and more" since if I really think about it I suppose it's been a slight increase. Certainly my honeymoon phase with physics is over -- it gets a lot less magical and exciting once you find out what "quantum" is really all about -- but I'm more and more certain of my choice of what to study.

perhaps a different perspective from someone who left traditional lab science?

love basic science and miss it so much that on bad days I have been known to break into tears. BUT. Every time I make plans to try and go back, a good friend asks me if I would really be going back to *bench science* or whether I'd be going back to a career of grant writing.

You need a choice that says your love for science oscillates through time.

To be completely honest I like science pretty much the same since I started grad school. What I have realized in the past few years is that I don't like science as much as a lot of other people and therefore am not willing to put the same time and sacrifice into it. I wish I could but I can't. I have too many other interests. Still, I am working as a scientist and I really enjoy it (though in industry, not academia)

I'm a grad student, AbD. But I realized I just really like fixing broken instruments, designing and building upgrades for insturmentation, and writing control software. The actual science being done means nothing to me. I have seriously considered becoming a mechanic from time to time. I took an aptitude test recently, the results of which strongly suggested I choose a career in Engineering. After 9 years in science. Oops?

As is frequently the case with me and quizes, can I take option e? "I love science just as much as when I started, but I am pretty fed up with my job"

I answered I hate science more and more. BECAUSE I am seeing what kind of a shitty bullshit gets passed as great science!
