Disingenuous Studying- Flora Lenon

by amateurflaneur

There exists a social phenomenon found amongst university students: the extreme exaggeration of the amount of work they have done.

It works both ways: they have done ‘soooo much’, or ‘literally nothing’.

Both are lies.

The former is to convince themselves that they are not doomed to fail. And the latter is to either deceive their fellow classmates into a false sense of security or to ‘show off’ about their own inability to concentrate on the task at hand. All discussion of quantity of ‘work done’ must be avoided at all costs; it is dull and never even close the truth.

N.B. Girls also do this with relation to quantity of food consumed.
