A: I finished all the homework for next week.
B: Don't be such a keener! You're making the rest of us look bad!
Keeners also exhibit chronic habits which make them easy to spot. A keener will have intense feelings of anxiety about an upcoming test 3 months in advance and then proceed to receive an A later. Keeners also have a calculator at all times in order to calculate their GPA at any given moment in order to reassure themselves that they will receive an A in the course. A keener also possesses the lightning reflexes of a black mamba in order to raise their hand at an astonishing speed to answer any question that the teacher may ask in order to demonstrate their mental prowess. But most important of all, a keener is one that is enthusiastic about learning more than anything else.
Me: Uhh...classes haven't even started yet and you and I both know you're going to ace this course, you're such a keener.
B: I know, she gets an A on every single test, and she freaks out when she doesn't.
Teacher: "Plain and simple, Jimmy. You can elude yourself with your supposed academic skills but we all know you're a keener."
Jimmy: "Aah, whatever. I was just gonna throw your lab books and test tube racks into a fire anyway.."
