I used to protect anyone and everyone who got picked on (if I saw it). Eventually the kids I protected became nice, popular kids, and therefore I'm popular. Despite the setbacks (which proved not to be setbacks in my school) of being gay, a pagan, and a heavy metal fan. Although my school is different than others. We don't have cliques here.
You're popular if people enjoy being around you. Smiling, happy and even keel. People like to be around those who make them feel special, wanted and liked for who they are. It really helps to smell nice (not with lots of perfume or cologne, but naturally clean)--we are all still animals, our sense of smell still guides us. If you are a good listener, can keep a secret, don't gossip or say negative things about others----this will all add to your appeal. Just keep in mind, it is better to have a few close friends than to be adored by the masses. Nothing can replace having friends you can depend on when you're feeling down and out.
be a friend to everyone, don't be afraid of making new friends, and be yourself, if that doesn't work out for you, just wait, it will happen. I am somewhat popular in school and I learned it from being myself, don't let others bring you down! ;) Usually people think that if you have a lot of money and friends, you are automatically on the "popular list". But the truth is that you being you is the key!
It depends on stuff like personality, ability, who you are, what sex, and what you do. If you give away money, sing and dance a little, or great at sports, you might be a popular person, but above all, you always have to treat other people right.
i used to be know as a jerk at my school, but this year I stopped cussing increased sense of humor better and funny comebacks on bullies used my bystander power pushed myself in athletics and now Im really better behaved been myself been really nice stopped what i was doing inmediately when they start getting annoyed or angry got bright ( already was but really annoying) stopped mentioning sex alot around girls increased my " Im sorry"'s stopped being rude if i could avoid it don't pick a fight when somebody is going to get in trouble (with teacher or big guy) quickly say it was you
congratulate encourage eyebrow and nod to the girls (giggle giggle) make good art and be cool about it share when a fight breaks out try to stop it don't laugh and comment with strangers (look stupid) if you feel like you shoudl't laugh with certain people yet don't say wazzup more and say "cool shirt" or something and the converation will begin by itself
compliment don't do crazy stuff I can't think of any more stuff but I'M STARTING TO LAUGH WITH POPULAR KIDS ALREADY! THE GIRL WHO GAVE ME HER # ON A QUESTION I ASKED BEFORE WAS POPULAR!!!
Popular people are the ones that dress up fake, and pretty, put on a lot of make-up and more. They are rich too. They are USUALLY the bullies. They pick on the people who are unpopular. I should know, because I was bullied my whole life by them, and I don't see what's wrong with me... whatever. I just want to punch their freakin' faces... uggh. I am unpopular, but I have a lot of friends and the guys do flirt all the time with me, but I ain't worried about guys like a lot girls are. Popular girls dress up with their junk hanging out and crap, because they have low self-esteem. I'm like the only girl in my whole school that's real and some of my friends are.
Either be really smart or really stupid cause if you're average then people dont really pay attention to you but if your smart they hear your name a lot so a lot of people will know you and if youre really stupid then you always get in trouble and they hear your name a lot too but if youre really smart you cant look nerdy you have to be pretty/handsome to be popular. or if youre very sporty
well if your kind and don't listen to what people say about you,stand up for people who can't stand up for themselves and laugh a little you will always be doing the right thing . that's what should make people popular.
Standing up to a big and mean bully, doing something good, (you can do something bad, but I think you would be in serious trouble) winning something big, or it just can be that person's behavior really, or it could be because of how pretty or hansom they are.
being social and outgoing. the stereo types say you have to be snobby and mean. but really whos going to think your cool if youre always mean to them. be nice be on good terms with everyone and do good things. popularity is having everyone look up to you. hope i helped. :))
dont worry about being popular. most teenagers who think they are popular arent even really liked by most other kids. and their "friends" all talk bad about them when their back is turned anyways. and you wont see the majority of those kids again once you graduate, unless you have them on facebook. even then, you probably wont be talking to them. just worry about keeping your close friends close. being a good friend will make you the best kind of popular. its hard to dislike a good friend.
not asking what makes you popular. selfish idiot. youre lucky enough to live in this country where you get to sit on your computer that mommie and daddy paid for when there are children in africa who just want something to eat. no wonder you arent popular.
The most popular people have good looks, high test scores, artistic abilities, and a great sense of humor. Usually someone that does mind tackling one another in front of a teacher, (You also have to be good at sports...)
Unfortunately, "popular" tends to mean someone who is in control. Usually has a lot of money. There is a difference between "popular" an "queen bee"... Popular usually means they are well liked because of their personality and style. Queen bees rule the herd by fear.
1.temporary they are popular becuase they game up with an idea/owned something everyone liked, could do something really well when it was popular like heelies, which have definetley died out.
2. long time they do whatever is popular, and get along with everyone, sporty/gamers/shopaholics/computer wiz. alot of popualar people in a school setting can make jokes about anything someone says. theres alot of different ways to become popular, you can be mean, or you can be nice. the mean people are usually popular untill the people that follow them need advice, but nice people are popular when someone needs help/advice. popular people tend to do whatever the media says too. but with the nic out gowing person, people just are happy around them becuase of there personality, unfortunatley people arent judged by personality much anymore, its all looks/trends now :(
Although answers vary, my personal opinion about the attributes towards being a popular person are many. For example, popular people tend to be outgoing, and they know almost everyone. Popular people go to parties and have Facebook, Google +, Twitter, and other social networking accounts. Also, popular people have a physically beautiful appearance. I know that this may sound stereotypical, but please keep in mind this is simply my opinion. You do not need to take my word for it. I hope this helps! :)
nothing can MAKE someone popular only things can help get you to be popular are you have a lot of friends or how many people that like you as a person. The more people you have that like you as a person and the more friends you have the more popular you will become.
Be cool..dont spazz out at something that isnt that big of a deal....don't laugh at your own jokes if no one else laughs too... don't be shy. be outgoing..don't be too annoying though..be really nice and try to bring out your self but in a chill personality...ORR target one of the popular people that you can best get along with and than start branching out and talking to the other popular people..
It depends mainly on the crowd & the popular person. Being rude might show signs for "self esteem",so people follow the confident person even if he/she is rude. Within another crowd,you might find that the good looking person is getting all the attention. But mainly : when people see you hang around a lot of people,automatically they would like to join you. But you will never get a lot of people around you in the first place without being a) natural leader, b)being able to socialize with total confidence.
