Make an appointment with your school's GUIDANCE Counsel to find out if your school provides testing in selecting a vocation. There are several instruments from which to choose such as the Strong Interest Survey and another one called the Campbell Interest & Skill Survey. Both of these devises have good validity data and have assisted thousands of adolescents and young adults in making career choices.

Good luck with finding a major that brings you great joy.
