Which do you consider yourself. Whether you make your judgement off of your work environment or whether you base it off of your success or lack of success in school, what do you consider yourself to be?

Personally I think I'm a slight under-achiever because I've always been book smart but the grades never are extremely high. Thoughts anyone? Discuss.

im quite the underachiever myself. I do amazing on all my tests but dont do enough assignments and also get lazy. I also don't prepare myself well. I didnt expect the essay to be the first part of the SAT and i didnt finish it. i was tired and couldnt get a controlling idea going

when i was little i was told by 5 teachers i was ******** (litterally) and now im an A and B student

i wasnt saposed to be getin any playing time for b ball cause my coach hates me for gettin a fight with him during football season and i didnt have a jump shot at the begining of season and now i have the best on the team

im not sure if that has anything to do with under or overacheiveing but whatever

I'm probabally the biggest under achiever on this board.

I got a 26 on my ACT...yet i flunked 2 required classes my last semester so i'm forced to take 2 plus one from the year before this summer.

I'm so lazy I won't even call up my teacher to find out why I got 0's on assignments I was excused from.

Not to mention I just got a new job...went for the first 3 days...and haven't been back in 10 days. Needless to say i'm a waste of human life.

Oh and to cap it off, I was a good baseball player, basketball player, and qb in football, yet I choose to quit all those sports before I was out of high school because of the commitment it took.

What up twiddler.

I'm probably an overachiever simply because I'm a slacker/procrastinator and I just seem to fall into things.

At the same time I'm probably an underachiver because I could be doing even greater things if I really applied myself.

I guess I need a girl who'll nag me on to greatness. lol

im decent at sports for my build, which is extremely thin and frail, so in that sense i overachieve
but in the same sense if i just worked out and put some effort into it i would more than likely be on a few teams at my school, so im quite the underachiever there

Depends on what you're talking about. I'm a gross over-achiever in work and in sports but I'm an underachiever (sometimes worse than others depending on if I actually want to try) in classes. I just hate homework... Like essays I'll do, but tedious little things are freaking ********. Don't give me homework in a class and I will get an A, make homework 50% of the grade and really boring, and I will do just enough to get a mediocre grade (ranging from D+ to B depending on my interest in the class)

Outside the classroom, I'm the guy who spends an extra hour at the track after everyone has gone home or spends an hour and a half in self-motivated working out at home.

IQ is a horrible system. It only measures learning potential and that doesn't account for potential with a lack of base skills, thus even a person with perfect learning potential would do atrociously if they lacked base skills.
