Bearings - Size of the angle

I know that N ane E is 90º between each other but what is S and ESE? Apparently it's 67º30', I don't understand it, please help me!

Having a circle with the locations for each of the 8 main directions is an important place to start.
With North at the top of the circle, could you say for sure whether ESE looks like it's above or below the SE direction?  That'd be something important to share so that I know how to help you out.  
Also at what bearing would the SE direction be located: greater than 180º or less than 180º?  Remember there will be 360 full degrees around the circle and you're correct in that the values get bigger going clockwise around the circle.  I'll check back a little later to see how you answer.
