    Shallow life is a life in which there is no great thinking. It is an ordinary life where we do a job, earn money, get married, have children, bring them up, get them married, take part in entertainment, fulfill sex desires, purchase a house, earn great or small wealth and finally die one day without even asking what was the purpose of our life in the very first place.

    They are materialistic and only care about looks, money, and status and especially making themselves happy at the expense of others.

    They are only interested in superficial or materialistic aspects of life. They are not deep thinkers. They are in a rut. They follow a daily routine without trying to understand why.

      Not usually related to intelligence but part of it could be the way they were raised and part of it could be environmental or in their DNA.

    The implication is "deep" or "profound" vs "shallow" or "unawakened."

    An example of shallow or stereotypical "Valley girl norm" is given in the science fiction movie "Earth Girls Are Easy."  In other words, the first human-alien contact, as experienced by two Valley girls, finds them focusing on the possibilities for dating the aliens.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Girls_Are_Easy
