Basically an illusion. People say they're popular just to get attention and make themselves seem better than they actually are. These "popular" people will throw parties and wear expensive clothing to look "cool" Stupid people who also want attention and to seem better will start worshiping them.
Girl 1: OMG she's so popular. I want to be just like her!
Girl 2: You know, most people don't actually like her. She only THINKS she's so cool. Take a look around for once.
Girl 1: but...but...but...
A group of teenagers in high school that for some reason are mysteriously known as the most important kids in the school, usually without the rest of the student bodies knowledge as to how and when this even happened. Was there some kind of secret meeting that everyone held? Was there a note passed around the entire school? No one's sure. The only thing everyone does know is that somehow these kids are the chosen ones, and now we all have to go with it.
While it all is a bit of a mystery, there usually are defining characteristics of all these chosen ones. It depends on the school, but more often than not the ''popular'' kids are either rich, good looking, involved heavily in school and especially in the athletics department, funny, snobby, uninterested in the ''non chosen ones'' (or mean to them), or a combination of any of the above. The popular girls are usually either on the cheerleading or dance team, or possibly excell in athletics such as track or basketball. Popular guys are most often jocks on the football and basketball teams. The average popular kid can be smart or dumb, a partier or not. In actuality the majority of them do party, but for some reason the girls are usually less open about it. This usually has to do with keeping their status squeaky clean. This isn't usually the case for the guys, as many of the popular guys boast about drinking 5 beers and playing 2 rounds of beer pong in some kids basement and having the craziest weekend ever. However, this i...
Someone who has a lot of friends. Not all popular people are bitchy mean and stupid. A person can be popular within their own group not only the entire school. A person can be popular for many different reasons and it's not fair to judge them because a lot of people like and respect them. You don't have to be pretty to be popular, but that does help with the opposite sex. However, Then you have the people who have a lot of "friends" because they are intimidating and/or mean and people are scared of them. Usually these kind of people aren't actually liked but people are "friends" with them so they don't get made fun of. This isn't is as common as is portrayed in movies, this website , tv shows ect. Usually popular people are popular because they have the good qualities people look for in a friend.
Laura is so nice and funny, no wonder she is so popular.
One of the biggest cliches in today's culture. Silly "getting-back-at-you" high school chick flicks usually portray the popular girls as blonde bombshells who gabble on their cellphones and say "like" as their every other word.
I'm not defending the popular girls here. I wish they'd be a bit more inclusive. What I'm talking about is the silly unpopular girls who like to pretend they're misunderstood and that the popular girls are the Evil Clique in the aforementioned chick flicks. They pretend they're being bullied or pushed around, and hog sympathy. These are the ones who drive me mad.
Equally annoying are the "non-conformists" who join a subculture of millions to be individuals. But that's another story.
I'm anti-example. Popular. This is now a ten-word sentence.
a stereotype of a group of young people, such as highschoolers or middleschoolers, that usually are good looking and have expensive clothes. females in this group are usually very concerned with their appearance and their fashions,they are generally fit or very thin and tanned, cheerleading is a commonplace for "popular girls". a girl's physical beauty will be her defining characteristic. Boys must act like "one of the boys" and act manly. he must concern himself with sports, beer and hot women. His humor or athleticism will be his defining characteristic. Popular people in this sense avoid doing things that arent considered cool by their peers, such as being overly enthusiastic about academics. They must also associate mainly with other people that fit this stereotype.
They often like to go to and have parties where there is underage drinking.
They adhere to many social rules, rules of dressing well or trendy, grooming meticulously, speaking similarly,possessions, pop music and passtimes.
Often but not always they can be superficial, excluding others if they do not dress a certain way, the people they hang out with, their lack of athleticism, a social skill problem, shyness, poverty, taking interest in things that are considered uncool like being in academic clubs, being a goth, being too fat or too thin.
there are many stereotypes that go along with this catagory of people. it has been said that the girls have eating disorders and are so fake that they turn their ...

'Popular' is characteristic of someone who is really nice to everyone, even if they are mean to them. Popular means to have many friends, and be liked by basically everyone, except those jealous. A 'popular' person lends text books, hangs out with 'nerds' if they want to, doesnt care what other people think of them, dresses how they feel like,(usually nice because they care whether their clothes are covered in grease stains or not), and regrets ever being stuck up, a snob, a bich to someone or being mean. Someone becomes 'popular' by being kind to everyone, 'cause no one likes being bitched at. People always think that they have to be gorgeous, dress preppy and be a bitch to be popular. When really, if you dont think your that great looking, you dont dress preppy, but your kind to everyone and have a great personality, i'd have to call you more popular than a cheerleader or jock. Also, if you think that a gorgeous cheerleader is popular, but shes a bitch to you, chances is, she's not popular, people are just too afriad to stand up to her.
'person 1': im so glad amy lent me her biology text book yesterday, i lost mine! It was really nice of her.
'person 2': 'i think that im going to amy's tonight, she's so fun to hang out with and not stuck up.'
'person 3': 'amy's so good at baseball, and she makes so many friends there'
'person 4': 'everyone's being a bitch today, lets go hang out with amy, she's never a bitch'
'person 5': 'haha, amy's shirt today is so rad, i love how she doesnt care what other people think of her.'
'person 6': 'lets all go to amy's tonight, i dont feel like going to jessica's party, shes always really mean.'
'person 7': 'amy's so kind to everyone, no wonder she's so popular'
Someone who is glorified simply for his/her looks. Has a overall immature attitude and rejects people that they find unattractive or unpopular. The majority of people considered popular will go on to live out their life in the fast food industry due to the fact that they have an IQ below sixty and have contracted five or more STDs.
