I prefer biology.  I guess that because it relates most directly to living organisms.
Chemistry and physics are generally about things that we don't see, at least not directly. But all you have to do is look out your window to see what biology is all about.

You can also put me squarely in the biology camp.  The other two involved WAY too much math to make me really have a huge interest in them.  In addition, I really love animals, so studying biology and understanding animals better was a good fit for me.

Personal preferences definitely enter into deciding which is "interesting."  Biology intrigues many people because they are affected by their own genetic makeups and are interested in animals and plants. When people look around them, biological elements are salient.  However, chemistry is also very interesting as is physics to those to whom it appeals.  Chemical advances affect people in many ways: medicine, cleaners, fabrics, cosmetics, etc. Physics has an impact on people, too,  especially in day-to-day activities such as driving and flying in jets, or when one goes boating.  Simply put, the more educated one is in a field of science, one is usually more interested in it.

I am most interested in biology-- the study of living things. I am fascinated by individual organism's adaptations to surviving in their habitats. I am also fond of making connections between various phyla. I like the scientific method of investigation to solve problems, by constructing hypotheses, investigating with controlled experiments, analyzing data and coming up with conclusions in biology. I enjoy learning about the connections living things have to one another and how important biodiversity is to our ultimate survival.

Personally, I was better with biology an physics than chemistry.  While I enjoy chemistry, it requires a lot of math.  Biology can be a little boring depending on the teacher.  Physics seems to be a lot of memorization and analysis.  Chemistry is probably the most fun simply because of the type of experiments one gets to participate in during class.  However, I always seemed to struggle in chemistry class because I was not good at that particular type of mathematics.
