Can anyone give any examples of what a 'naive' student is like? I looked up the word 'naive' in the dictionary and the definition was as follows:
na·ive or na·ïve ( P ) Pronunciation Key (n-v, nä-) also na·if or na·ïf (n-f, nä)
Lacking worldly experience and understanding, especially:
Simple and guileless; artless: a child with a naive charm.
Unsuspecting or credulous: “Students, often bright but naive, betand losesubstantial sums of money on sporting events” (Tim Layden).
Showing or characterized by a lack of sophistication and critical judgment: “this extravagance of metaphors, with its naive bombast” (H.L. Mencken).
Not previously subjected to experiments: testing naive mice.
Not having previously taken or received a particular drug: persons naive to marijuana.
they'd probably be naive due to lack of experience in the big wide world as it's known.. as in easy to sell a fake rolex to
Can you also be a naive student in the sense that you're very bright, but for some reason don't do well in you're studies?
yes, but there's more to it than that.
a naive student would perhaps get an a in their mock exam, think 'oh im the greatest' and be so naive to think theyre incredibly bright and then get a c in the final or something, meaning they were deluded by the first test result and thought they were too good to need to work hard for the final. thats the best i can do at this time.
I know somone like this, but I think it is more a case of her lacking common sense. She is very bright (ABB in her A2's i think..) but comes across as being very stupid/lacking intelligence, and because of this she tends to annoy everyone..
