This is a discussion on What type do you consider the most popular? (For example, in Junior High) within the Member Polls forums, part of the Personality Type Forums category; Originally Posted by OrangeAppled Probably an ESxx type. Some ENxJs, but they tend to be more in an academic circle ...
Actually, the standard you are popular by is what girls you can get. The highest level is dating older, popular girls. That is the top of popularity. That is a class its own. I wasn't in that class. I couldn't quite date the hottest girl in my own grade either. I could crack the top ten, top 5 if I was lucky. Top 3 is probably my ceiling. So I was like B+ or A popularity. There was one step above me.
I guess as an ESFP I'm too kewl for you guys.
It really depends what you mean by popular. I was really well known if that means anything. It dosent neccessarily mean everyone liked me.
I had quite a bit of school yard enemies.
ESFPs. I'll go father and say that they are one of the most common types throughout the American education system. Unfortunately, they were (and still are) one of my least favorite types to be around with in general.
Here's something I wrote a couple month ago late at night when I had nothing better to do.
"...Kids are always expected by their parents, teacher, and peers to “hang out” with their “friends” constantly. This is the equivalent of a death sentence for an introvert. From this point forward, “popular kids” who manipulate their “friends” begin their rise up the social ladder. From then on, a vicious cycle of targeting the introverted begins. In the American education system, the very idea of a true friendship is twisted, broken, and thrown out, then replaced with the idea that anyone who has something in common with you is a friend. Extroversion in school is the key to surviving on a day-by-day basis..."
That's why the education system is filled with ESFPs from my point of view.
I'd say ESTP, then ENFJ or ESFP.
I dunno, popularity was pretty arbitrary when I was in Junior High. I was almost ridiculously popular despite hardly ever talking and not knowing anyone's name or face or personality, and there were people with personalities similar to that of my own with far less fortune (or misfortune, my connotation of Junior High varies day to day). It was just...random. People in the same cliques didn't even have common interests.
ESTPs, methinks? Uhhhhhh.
INFPs are quite popular at my school, IDRKW lol. XD
in my school it's enfj
In my school ESFJs are the most popular among the stereotypical popular crowd because they're outgoing, and conform to social norms (that's what I voted for). ESFPs are most popular among the hipsters because they are funny, charming, and non-conformists. ENTPs are most popular among the nerdy kids (I'm an ENTP myself, so I can attest to that. We are both smart and charismatic). INFPs are most popular among the sweet, normal kids. They have a sweet, dreamy nature that kids who don't fall into a traditional category are attracted to.
Just my thoughts on the matter :D
When I was in high school, it seemed like Sensors (as opposed to Intuitives) were more likely to be "popular", especially if they were also Extroverts. Over-analysis (something common to Intuitives) isn't usually looked upon as something that the socially-adept partake in. The last two letters (F/T and J/P), I would guess, probably don't show as strong a correlation as the first two. "Popularity" is pretty arbitrary and vague anyway, though.
