How Students Determine If They`re a “Math Person” or “Reading Person”
A student’s self-perception of what they are good at and how good they are at different types of tasks predicts their future scholastic performance and choices. For example, students who perceive themselves as good at math are more likely to engage in math class, earn good grades in math, and enroll in advanced math classes as they progress through their educational careers compared to students who doubt their math ability or aptitude.

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of California, Irvine, and Technical University Dortmund in Germany conducted a first of its kind study to directly chart changes in students’ use of dimensional comparisons (for example, “How good am I in Math compared with English?”) in self-evaluations of their math and verbal abilities (math and verbal self-concepts) from Grades 1 to 12.
