You Know The Answer

posted in School on Jan 23, 2007

Maybe it’s just me, but I hate answering questions in class. I can’t stand it. There really has been one class that I’ve felt very comfortable answering all of the questions, and that’s 20th Century Music. Outside of that, I can’t think of a time I really wanted to do any work for the class or actively answer questions that are posed. And it’s no that I don’t know the answer. Most of the time I honestly do, or have enough of a idea that I can make a semi-intelligent answer, but I don’t really feel like it.

I know that I’ve pretty much always been like this, where I basically said to myself, “Screw answering questions, it’s easier just sitting here,” and I know that it came from back in grade school when I was super shy. Now, even though I say that I don’t care what people think, the phobia still exists in some shape or form and I do not answer questions.

Another thing is that I don’t like being wrong. It’s easier to let someone else answer and then compare what they say to what I was thinking to begin with. Let them take the fall. This is probably the worst mentality for…everything, but it’s what I’ve got.

Am I the only one who does this? I know some people love answering questions or bringing up things even if they’re wrong, but I loath it. Maybe it’s not my fault at all; maybe classes should be more interesting.
