    I'm currently in Year 13 and people STILL label me with the quiet card. I've changed dramatically over the last year or so and although I used to be really quiet and pretty shy, I'm now really talkative in most situations and my confidence is the highest it's ever been.

    Yet on my report it still says things like '...is a quiet, reserved member of the class' and if a teacher makes a comment about the quiet people or whatever, I still seem to be judged as that? I went on a trip yesterday and did nothing but talk and have a laugh with the others and the teacher on the minibus, yet the teacher still made a comment about me and another girl being the quiet ones! It's like this label is just attached to me. I swear I would literally have to stand on the table during class and strip whilst screaming songs to even begin to not be seen as 'quiet'.

    This is another reason why I can't wait for uni, because I can finally get rid of this annoying label and people can actually see me for who I am.

    Does anyone else have this problem? Not necessarily with a 'quiet' label, but with anything?

    to be honest even if you were quiet i wouldnt let it bother you wat people may say about it, as they say "better to be quiet and thought a fool than be loud and proved a fool" cut yourself some slack

    This.

    If it bothers you that much, then maybe don't act as quiet? Then you won't get labelled like that. But just don't go into gobby overload and think before you speak, no one likes someone who constantly goes on or says stupid stuff
