Mordheim & such beasties would be more the realm of those with artistic/poetical/romantic natures
That's an interesting and probably mostly correct view, DeafNala! Never thought of it that way...

I'm a TaeKwon-Do Black Belt and instructor so I ticked Life Science: Biology, Ecology, etc. and Physical Science: Physics, Astronomy, Chemistry, etc.

I have to say that confused me a little my dear WBK Smile

Martial Arts = sports
Physics, chemistry = not sports

but either way you look at it, the study of martial arts is not related to physical science.
A lot of Tae Kwon-Do is based on the principles of Newtonian Physics. It has sport elements (sparring competitions and such) but that is only a very small part of what it’s teachings and principles include. It is a relatively new martial art (it was first named in the 1950s) that has elements of an ancient, traditional Korean style as well as some of the effective things from Japanese and Chinese martial art styles. It is not a “fixed” style that is kept exactly the way it has always been taught for hundreds of year just “because that’s how it’s always been taught” – it is tested, developed and adjusted by constant (scientific) observation/experience.

So I ticked physical sciences because I have an interest in that area that has been increased by being involved in Tae Kwon-Do. I “unticked” it because it wasn’t made clear when I made my choices that the poll was about university/college study, rather than what we are currently involved in.

I felt the question above the pole implied a single area of study
If you wanted a single answer, why tick the "yes" radio button for the Multiple Choice option when setting up the poll?

That was uncalled-for and I'm somewhat offended by it to be honest No

Yeah, sometimes my sense of humor is a bit to sharp silent apologies.
Fact is, I think your accomplishments in Tae Kwon-Do are impressive in themselves and there is not need to relate them to other fields.
Being a Black Belt anything is stand alone awesome.

Not in Portugal, it's not. A small child (I know several who have) can get a black-belt in karate after 3 years of an hour a week. I know someone in England who had to do 6 hours week for years to achieve anything at all.

The junior syllabus to get to Cadet Black Belt (in TKD) is less demanding than the adult one (obviously, for physical development reasons!) but not all martial arts schools are as rigorous in their standards as they should be.

I see, but they were in a class with adults who were progressing at the same level. But personally, I just don't trust their teacher. He has a certificate on his wall that's the same as the ones he prints out and gives to his students, and he cut the time until my friends next upgrade test for making a Bombeiro cry (a Bombeiro is a Portuguese-fireman, they are regarded as something like the Thunderbirds only they drive Unimogs and run more people over than are killed by fires. In short, they are exceptionally tough and unpaid).
