I found this quiz on Deborah Marcus' Secular Homeschooling
My score was 33 which apparently means that I am:
Getting there. You generate a respectable amount of resentment, but the animosity you and your brilliant brood inspire is purely localized.
The quiz is extremely funny, do it just for the fun of the questions.
However, this brings me to a topic near and dear to my heart, the concept of the overachiever.
I wish I knew why people who do well are considered overachievers. I've been accused of being one my entire life, as has my husband. So called, "overachievers", are by and large people who do their best at everything they do. The average person apparently can't stand this so they came up with a slur to try to make it sound as if people who achieve are somehow psychologically unsound. it drives me crazy, totally and utterly crazy.
There is nothing wrong with mediocrity, but please, accept that you want to be mediocre and enjoy it. Let those of us who like to do everything to the best of our abilities also just enjoy it. We don't create slurs for the mediocre or underachievers, so please let us be.
