My question is when passive voice is preferred over active voices and vice versa?
- I remember that I was taught that in scientific writings, passive voice was preferred over active voice. Is it correct?
If I want to describe several actions of mine, for example:
I did thing A. I did thing B. I did thing C. I did thing D. ...
If I keep using the active voice, will that make the description boring? That is why I thought juxtaposition of passive and active voice would make the description better:
I did thing A. Thing B was done by me. I did thing C. Thing D was done by me. ...
But a comment led me wonder whether juxtaposition of passive and active voice is good, or when it is good and when it isn't?
