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). The quizzes are usually the basis for the tests and the tests are usually the basis for final exams; by holding on to all of them your son can actually learn from his mistakes, save time, and make life easier (a win-win).
