This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions on choosing an ideal word or phrase must include information on how it will be used in order to be answered. For help writing a good word or phrase request, see: About single word requests" – Jason Bassford, TrevorD, Cascabel, Chappo
The (more general) term incongruence (incongruent person here) comes to mind. It is the opposite of congruence defined as 'matching of experience and awareness'.
If they choose to say they don't know how to do it, it's because they have no real escuse except that they are lazy and unconcerned. In such context I would use these two adjectives.
I would say
"A work-shy person".
According to Cambridge Dictionary :
- disliking work and trying to avoid it when possible:
// Most of the unemployed are not work-shy and genuinely do want jobs.
One more word which can be appropriate here:
from the verb
: to pretend or exaggerate incapacity or illness (as to avoid duty or work)
: to pretend to be ill or otherwise incapacitated in order to escape duty or work; shirk
