    Is it true that kids with certain personalities/hobbies tend to be more popular at school or uni? Or that being popular changes your personality?

    I have noticed that my adult friends who were "popular" at uni tend to be different to those who weren't.

    I always thought, at my school at least, there were two different types of 'popular'. Of the two most popular people, one was your typical confident beauty, always having the boys after her, going to parties, always looking perfect.... The other was clever, well liked, Head Girl, nobody could say a bad thing against her. It seemed the two types were nice and liked by everyone / fun and everyone wanted to be them.

    In my experience it was the ones with no personality and no hobbies who became popular.

    The popular girls at my school were only popular because they were just loud people that needed a crowd to watch them all the time. With some of them, their personality did change because individually they were completely different. And when they're with their click, they change. School was their peak.

    it's because they are the loudest, most outgoing, etc. so this is why they tend to be popular.

    The popular kids who I've always seen through primary and secondary school were just mainly obnoxious, loud attention seekers and thrive on being part of large groups. Theyre often the ones who are insecure when left alone.

    When I was at senior school, all the popular girls were in all the top sets and all were on the school netball team. They were all sporty and reasonably well groomed (not scruffy). They haunted the PE block at break and lunch and were never seen outside their large group. Some of them are still friends and hang out, even though we've all been out of school more than 10 years. I've heard people say that the popular ones at their school are the one who mess about all the time. That wasn't the case where I was, the popular girls were all model behaviour students. I wouldn't want to be popular if it meant having to act like a clown all the time in lessons.
