About This Quiz

Being an overachiever is used a lot as an insult when kids are growing up, as if it's something to be ashamed of. Trying hard wasn't cool. Wanting to get good grades and get along with your teacher wasn't cool. So what was cool? Slacking off, not doing homework, skipping class or talking through class, etc. But that was never your style. You didn't care if you were "cool" and you wore your overachiever badge proudly.

Of course, though, there are those who don't, those who hide behind a blasé attitude to fit in, even though they're dying for that A. Then there are those who unsubscribe from overachieving altogether and either become average, or dare it be said, an underachiever. Whichever path you chose in life, there is a scale of achievement. It's not the classic grading scale you remember from school, or the corporate ladder so often used to measure success, but a simple, 1-10 scale to tell how much of an overachiever you really are. If you get all of your assignments and everything on your to-do list completed very early, you might be at an 8. But if you do all of that plus get a head start on the next day's work, well, you might be off the charts! So how much of an achiever are you on a scale of 1-10? Take this quiz to find out!
