Pure. Simply because it comes a lot more naturally to me than anything applied.

Applied. I like application to real life and the methods are usually not too hard to understand. And
Probability (not stats) it just clicks with me and its super useful.

Pure is too abstract and Im unmotivated when I was studying it, I could never grasp group/rings and number theory properly without doing many steps of thinking.

I don't like stats because I find it incredibly boring, although I did find the application interesting and undoubtedly useful esp in linear modelling, I am not good at it.
