Nationally, 54% of adults share the same category as you. This reflects the majority of people and is the biggest of the three categories (compared with 22% of adults who are ‘science fans’ and 25% ‘science sceptics’).
Science is something that you have a generally positive attitude about and consider to be important but it is also likely to be just one of your interests.
‘Interested, but…’ people pursue science-related activities from time to time, particularly with children, but their passions generally lie elsewhere. They tended to do all right in science at school, and may have even taken one or two sciences post-16 but generally pursued other subjects. Demographically, a wide range of people fall into this category, which tends to be broadly representative of the population.
Although you may not consider yourself to be ‘keen’ about science, some of your hobbies – such as cooking, gardening or DIY – are likely to be related to science or engineering. Generally, you probably regard yourself as ‘okay’ at science but you probably don’t think that other people would describe you as a ‘science person’.
