The Seemingly Satisfied Underachiever


The Seemingly Satisfied Underachiever puts in the same modicum of effort as the Sincere Slacker but has no problem with this less-than-stellar result. After all, it's just school, right?

Homayoun's Tip: I encourage students to keep all tests and quizzes (especially the ones with scores that were lower than ideal).
