Like if they are in something like Computer science, we are nicer to them than if they are in business.
Why do we do that? It's not like just because they studied computer science versus business they are better friends with us or the quality of the conversation we have with them is going down.
EVERYONE does that, including me (I try not to). I just found out someone I knew was doing computer science instead of accounting and I thought better of that person and our interactions just because of that.
It's not fair to other people who notice the different ways in which we treat people and feel bad.

Because most of the people who study computer science or engineering or economics or even law tend to be super judgmental and cocky about their own field of study. They think they're so much better and smarter than anyone else. Best example: I study liberal arts myself. And no, I won't apologize for it because I think liberal arts subjects are awesome and very important for our society. Western civilization was largely built on liberal arts. HOWEVER, I don't despise subjects like engineering or economics. I don't have anything against them. I can't remember EVER having hear any history or philosophy or French literature major saying something like "oh yeah, those engineering guys are really idiots". NEVER! Most of my liberal arts friends are interested not just in their own field but in other fields as well. For example I love my two majors but I'm also very interested in completely different fields like astronomy or chemistry.
And yet, I have listen to stupid hate comments from students of natural science subjects and tech-majors every week. I really don't know what's wrong with these people or why they're so bitter about us liberal arts folks.0
