Finals week can bring out the worst in some people. Everyone's crammed into library study spaces and coffee shops, feeding off each other's stress. There's overconsumption of caffeine, stress eating, lack of sleep, procrastination, and more. You'll see a lot of different reactions to the stress of finals. Here are the five types of people you'll see during finals week.

1. The person who can never manage to be productive

2. The person who's a little too calm

Apparently the reality of exams and final papers hasn't set in for this person, because they can't seem to be bothered to start preparing. Managing stress in a calm way is important, but this is borderline delusional.

3. The person who's a little too stressed

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F03%2F6361639837012842151421874053_mickey%2520mouse%2520bullshit.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=479&h=15938f6683194c674b710be03b840a7896e31ac7e8cf800ceac72eb3a9cfc149&size=980x&c=2659013088 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F03%252F6361639837012842151421874053_mickey%252520mouse%252520bullshit.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D479%26h%3D15938f6683194c674b710be03b840a7896e31ac7e8cf800ceac72eb3a9cfc149%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2659013088%22%7D" expand=1]

The slightest inconvenience seems to set this person off. We're all stressed, I get that. There's no need to take it out on others.

4. The person who wants to seem like they know more than they do

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F03%2F636163985930853059-285429529_did%2520a%2520busines.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=5&h=2046d4ea780073979ee308121aab154eff764932dab2fd027f0473c2e9b03bac&size=980x&c=2836146478 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F03%252F636163985930853059-285429529_did%252520a%252520busines.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D5%26h%3D2046d4ea780073979ee308121aab154eff764932dab2fd027f0473c2e9b03bac%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2836146478%22%7D" expand=1]

Maybe they're in your class and are trying to help you study, but everything they say makes it very evident they never actually went to lecture.

5. The person who sees the bright side of finals week

You're done with the semester! This person is great to be around, they focus on the positives and keep you motivated.

Good luck on finals everyone!
