    There is also ”Zung1 Ji6 Beng6” (中二病 – Form Two Sickness) meant to describe immature second year high school student. This probably came from Japanese. The Japanese term was probably a misunderstanding of the English term ”sophomoric”. In US universities, second year students are called ”sophomores” and sophomoric is apt to tag them. However, sometimes second year high school students are also called ”sophomores” and that’s why they translate the term as 中二(Form Two).
