What Type of Student Are You?
Sep 10, 2013
c's get degrees
You toil for hours on end completing an assignment only to have it ruined by someone who claims it to be an accident you...
Smile and pull out a backup copy.
Brush it off, it was your own fault for not backing up your work.
Throw a fit and get back to work, that faster you get back to it the faster you finish.
Hurls a barrage of obscene words in every language you can and can't think of at the idiot, and make him do it for you.
Punch a wall, assuaging your rage, only to find your throbbing hand won't allow you to finish your work.
An exam is coming up, you prepare by...
Isolate yourself, place yourself in "the zone", studying ahead of time.
Formulating a study group where you actually study.
Formulating a study group which ends up being another social outing.
Leave studying for the geeks, figure out which one to copy off of.
What?! We have an exam, time to hit the books.
Getting buzzed before a final is...
It might relax me a bit and take away the test anxiety.
Save the alcohol for after the exam.
There's always a first time for everything.
Out of the question.
You go to the library because...
It's a nice place to kill time before my next class.
All the smart people study in the library, so that's where I should be.
Studying in my room isn't an option. I work better in the library.
The library is nice and cool, gotta love the a/c.
Where's the library?
When you go to class you take...
Paper for notes, text to parallel the lecture, pens and pencils for notetaking, highlighters for emphasis, and whatever other materials you think you may need (tape recorder, calculator, organizer, etc).
Paper for notes, the first writing utensil you see in your room, and the laptop your parents bought for you to play minesweeper in case the lecture ends up boring.
Paper for notes, the required texts, pens and pencils for notetaking and other required materials.
The text, everything else you assume someone will lend you.
You take your sidekick, your iPod, and your "A game", there's a cute chick/guy in your class you want to hook-up with.
On a Friday night you find yourself...
Work can wait until Sunday night, it's the weekend!
At the local frathouse partying.
In your room double checking your lecture notes parallel the book's.
Going out again because Thursday partying just doesn't fill your weekly party quota.
Out with friends, after you've finished all your work.
During discussions, your find yourself...
You take your phone and text a friend in a different class about how stupid the discussion is.
Listening, noting, absorbing all the information you can between all the writing and listening you can't find the time to participate..
You don't go to discussion, you discussed what you wanted with the cute guy/girl at lecture the other day.
You listen, jot down key points, discuss, and think about the topic being discussed.
You drone in and out, thinking about the next party, but every so often saying something.
The most important part about school to you is...
Networking, finding and meeting the right people so you can have more options when the time calls for choices to be made (career-wise).
Educating yourself, school is there so you can learn about the major you pursue, if I do well in my studies careers and employment opportunities are bound to come my way.
Partying, school is the place to meet party people and get bucked.
Experiencing life, schooling is where I can live amongst the peers of my generation, whom I'll be sharing my experiences with and learning from those experiences.
Finding purpose, school is the ideal place to find things I love and don't, it is here where I'll find what I want to do, what I want to be, and who I am.
Which most closely decribes how you pick classes?
Taking the classes that are the least demanding, and will provide you with the free time to do other things.
Taking classes that are required to succeed in your major.
Taking classes your friends are taking.
Finding classes you need, checking the instructor's easiness rating on websites (i.e. www.ratemyproffessor.com, etc), the A is what you want afterall.
Taking classes that will stimulate you mentally, open new doors, and create more options for your future.
You find someone cheating on an exam you...
Report the person immediately on the spot.
Nothing, I hope my cheating isn't as obvious as his/hers.
Talk to others after the exam, thinking someone else will report the culprit.
Explain to the instructor after class about what you saw.
Shrug it off, karma is a bitch, he/she will pay later for it.
Someone asks to copy an assignment from you, your response is...
No, I copied it, but too many of the same responses might trigger suspicion from the grader.
No, however you tell him you'll walk him through it.
Sure, someday I'm going to be in a similar bind, he/she better pull through for me then.
No, I spent the time doing the assignment and it's his/her own fault for failing to commit.
Sure, I copied it, it'd be wrong if I didn't let you.
Someone asks to share the text because he/she forgot it, your reply is...
Yes, I already read the chapter.
Sure, I can just re-read the text later again.
No, you don't have a book as well.
No, and you make up some excuse as to why. They should've brought their book to begin with.
Yes, come here. It's something you need so you should come to me.
