this word is often misused and has negative connotations. in reality, popular (when referring to a person) is when someone is very well liked and has a lot of genuine friends, most likely because they are a nice/friendly person. However, through the media and highschools around america, "popular" has grown to describe a certain group of people. these people, like punks, nerds, etc. have their own social code, which usually (but not always) includes expensive items/services, sports teams, and cheerleading. These people are not necessarily popular, yes some of them genuinly are well liked and have lots of friends becuase they too (gasp) are nice people. but some of them unfortunately are under the false impression that they are better than everyone else because of their possesions and friends/boyfriends/girlfriends, (who to these people also count as possesions).
girl 1: wow, have you ever noticed how many friends karen has? She's really popular
girl 2: i know, i hang out with her at the skatepark, she's really nice. She does a lot of activities, she must a lot of friends through them.

guy 1: how'd u get all that work done?
guy 2: oh, Robby helped me last night
guy 3: oh yeah he's really smart
guy 4 (just joined convo): who, robby? he's awesome, good tennnis player too, helped me with my serve.
guy 5: that dude's friggin' hilarious

judgment based on the complete stupidity and immaturity of a childish mind. a classification of how attractive someone is, how ignorant and arrogant they are, how stupid they are, and how many fake friends they can reel in and glue to their side.
many times seen in movies as a complete exaggeration, but still known in present day.
completely stupid. popularity should really be based on your amount of kindness and likability, rather than how fake and materialistic you can be. but it's not.
jane: "she's SO popular! she's SO pretty! and she has SO many friends ! I wish I were her "

doe: " you're kidding. she's wearing five pounds of makeup on her face, she's wearing a tight shirt, and she stuffs her bra with all the toilet paper she can find. she has minions, not friends. you don't wanna be her. "

The people with the confidence and quick timing to make comebacks, the coolness to sound interesting, and the general knowledge to talk to anyone normal. Since most people aren't confident, fast, or interesting, they can't become popular. The rare case of someone who knows nothing about general knowledge because they don't like it will have it worse off though, especially if they have the other skills, because they will seem like a try-hard if they act popular. This goes for any age but popularity is 1 in high school when people's social interest is at its most superficial.
Jon: Ryan always has a comeback when I say something stupid.
Ben: He's popular; he talks like that all the time.

Kids that have expensive clothes, shoe and are involved in sports. Most of them are assholes who take a shit on the rest of the people who can't afford nice things. Girls how ever don't try to be assholes rather than rich posers and fake bitches. Teachers fucking love popular kids because most of the teachers are really shallow and think that they are going to be friends with the kids rich parents. They have 25 different pairs of shoe or uggs a new outfit for every day of the year. Live in estates paid for with loans , parents are pussy faggots who coach any type of sports team and have no mechinicial skills and have car matinence at a dealership or car shop. Overall just assholes trying to be the best asshole they can be.
Regular kid: look at my new shoes

Popular kid: shut up I hat those shoes mine are ten times better go away and stop being annoying.
Teacher: that's right regular kid go away or your going to get detention, buy the way popular kid anything I can do for you?

people who think they're all that, and think they're cool. these people can also be complete jerks and bullies to people that keep to themselves and are really the 'cool' ones.
Example1: Madeline='Popular' Sally='Unpopular' speaks her mind Tina=An onlooker who doesn't care what people think about her.

Madeline: I love him so much!
Sally: Middle schoolers don't even know what love is so you seriously can't love Jimmy. Plus you've only been going out for a week.
Madeline: You don't even know what you're talking about. You're 13 right? You live in Lake Oswego and probably have lived here your whole life. Don't go acting like you know everything. Because you don't. And I know so many people that met and fell IN LOVE in middle school and are still married. And a lot of people in my family had a kid before they were 21 and they all got married. So just relax. You're not Dr. Phil BEEZY.
Tina: Madeline, it's an opinion so don't be such a fucking bitch.

'populars' are fake.
