the types of people in a group project - (concept inspired by beth r.)

October 6, 2020


The Organizer - this student is known as a teacher's pet, in some cases. But the name is self explanatory. This student knows their classmates inside and out and knows their respective strengths and weaknesses. They assign usually assign the smaller tasks to their groupmates and reserve the larger, more daunting tasks for themselves.

The Slacker - the groupmate that has no clue as to what the project is, and asks the teacher the most basic of questions that were answered at the beginning of the class period, and just basically spends a lot of time on their phone scrolling through Instagram and whatnot.

The Perfectionist - this student is nice enough..except when things don't go their way. They will get stressed at the most miniscule of things, such as the font of the slides being wrong, the pictures not being organized well enough, etc. They are a force to be reckoned with. It's best not to get in their way. 

The Chatterbox - this person talks a lot, obviously, albeit not about the project a hand, but rather whatever pops into their head. They are usually pretty nice, but their voice can get to be pretty annoying after awhile. 

The Quiet Kid - now this person isn't quiet under all circumstances, but when thrust into a situation in which they are forced to talk to people, they clam up. Usually, they will participate if their opinion is asked to be given, and do the work they've been tasked. 

"That" Kid - the one that everyone knows sniffed Sharpies in kindergarten. 

The Memeologist - the one person who scours the internet for memes about whatever subject we're learning about in class, (for example: dank Hamilton memes). That person, unfortunately, is me.

    okay, weird/ugly/mismatched fonts (i'm lookin' at you, arial!) and non-aesthetic presentations really annoy me, so i'm definitely more the perfectionist than the organizer... but i also talk wayyy too much.
    i guess nobody ever fits into one category. kinda like how everyone would be divergent in this world.

    hahaha this is amazing, just found this. i'm the organizer and the perfectionist, sorry to anyone who's been in a project w/me. i'm trying to be better. generally, i am not a fan of group projects, even though they can be fun w/friends. or they can turn into nightmares when all your friends are talented and opinionated and headstrong...
    anyway, great piece, isa

    Great Piece! I think of myself as a mix of the perfectionist, quiet one, and organizer. I usually have to do "group projects" on my own though.

    Sadly, I'm the Organizer, but that's only because other people don't want to do it!! I would be the Quiet Kid...
