Popular People Perhaps Practice Perfectionism?
Possibly Perceiving Potential Participants' Problems
so Prohibiting Peer Panel Procurement?
I can't say I was ever a popular pupil with my peers - I was trustworthy - I was helpful - I was kind but these things normally do not lead to winning a place on the popular girls' table. It seemed to me to be more about how you looked, what you wore and who you had your eye on and those things had to be Perfect!
Even as a teacher surveying a class it is easy to spot the popular children - the ones others fight to sit next to, to play with, to share with and often it is not those children that a teacher would hold up as models of behaviour but still they hold court and there is little anyone else can do about it.
Were you a Queen Bee or a Superior Male? If so, what was it like and did you use your powers for good? If you weren't, did you want to be part of the gang or couldn't care less? Leave a comment below and let me know :)
