I would like to know whether I am not providing enough real-life examples in this essay. In short, is it spot-on and does it answer the question prompt appropriately?

Anybody who is intellectually curious likes to experience Intellectual engagement. The friendly arguments, difficult questions countered by informed answers and eureka moments are my educational heaven. Intellectual discovery follows intellectual engagement as mind frontiers open up in the process of listening to others.

I always enjoyed discussions from an early age. My father would go with me as he went to relax and discuss topics such as politics with his age mates. I would occasionally chip in as I was an avid reader of newspapers and watched the news often. I enjoyed listening to them as they used proverbs to defend their stances. That really impressed upon me about the pleasure of social discussions.

I would like to explore the vast fields of Physics, Mathematics and computer technology. I have loved hacking away on my computer making programs to solve problems or do specific tasks ever since I was a little kid and I would like to go the next level and explore the theory and dynamics behind it all because I am aiming for a career in the Computer Industry. I have heavily researched on Bowdoin's excellent undergraduate programs and majors which promise to take a holistic approach to education and offer me a platform to a wonderful intellectual journey which I am really excited on embarking. From the recommendations and advice of myriad College Confidential forum members, I know I will be right at home at Bowdoin College if admitted.

You repeat the word "intellectual" twice in here; try replacing one with an another similar word.

I think that you need to review a little bit more sequence of tenses in your 2nd pargraph.

Apart from that, your essay seems good; and I feel like you do provide enough real-life examples!
