Theoretical Physics VS Experimental Physics!!!!



Theoretical physicists develop "mathematical models that both agree with existing experiments and successfully predict future results", while experimentalists devise and perform experiments to test theoretical predictions and explore new phenomena. Although theory and experiment are developed separately, they are strongly dependent upon each other. Progress in physics frequently comes about when experimentalists make a discovery that existing theories cannot explain, or when new theories generate experimentally testable predictions, which inspire new experiments."

Given this information, it is tough to decide which end of physics would fit me better. I would probably take more of a theoretical view on this, because I like proving theories true through logical proofs. Which one would you be?
