There are stereotypes and really there is none. However, there are similarities and commonalities. There are no hard line classifications but we can still typify people. Let us try with those we go to school together with – our classmates. These can even be used relating to neighbours, workmates, etc.

The Serious Student

Let's start with the group which can be called the leading men or women. A classmate of this type is the one that other classmates can depend on to ask about lessons or what specific instructions the professor gave.

The Unconscious Jester

This classmate is very preoccupied with himself, he does not notice he has caught the amusement of the rest in the classroom. Sometimes, he plays jokes that turn out to appear like he just wants to appear clever, which peeve other classmates. The classmates just let the disgust pass.

The Whiner

The Imaginary Friend

The Imaginary Friend is actually a virtual / online / cyber citizen or netizen. This classmate is is just like a mirage, an illusion of a presence. He may be there in the classroom but it is like he is not there. Actually, wherever he goes, he is in the virtual / online / cyber world, the

internet. The classroom activities and group projects are like distant galaxies to him. His fingers and eyes, even the whole head is on his Android smartphone all the time leaving his classmates in a world full of confusion whether he actually is doing his task for the group project or not, especially that he is always with other Imaginary Friends in the virtual reality world.

There are classmates who are older. They may be second coursers or enter college late because of financial difficulties. Some of them may be working full-time or part-time.

The Veteran

They are just quiet at the sidelines and gets pissed off when other students always ask them what is the lesson, the assignment and even the answers to assignments.
