... determined by how loud you are? By cool I mean "likable" and by association "popular".

What makes a kid cool at your school?
#2
being a tool

being likeable puts you just bellow the coolest kids

yea being cool in high school is pretty much just a contest to see who can be the biggest tool (who can make the biggest idiot of themselves) and these are usually the kids who give up their beliefs/morals to be accepted. it's sad really.

to be 'popular' at my school you have to be an arsehole and you have to act like a ****in knobsicle. I am not one of the 'populars' and i never want to be

i disagree...

cause there were always those loud unliked kids.


i think popular is more like well known.... and cool is likeable..

you can be popular with a bad rep, and not be cool.

or be real cool, but not popular.

My high school wasn't like that at all. We just had a ton of little cliques that you couldn't move between once you'd been in one for awhile. Nobody was really that "popular," but if I had to pick something I'd say your "popularity" was directly related to your bro-liness and your hotness.

Is it just me, or is cool status at your school determined by how loud you are?


Eh, not necessarily. At my high school we had this kid that was mentally handicapped and he would roam around the halls chirping like a bird and scaring the ever-loving bejesus out of you. He wasn't what you would call "well liked."

I'm sure he would be pretty cool in the bird community....

No way Dude! I'm probibly the MOST "Well known" person at my school...as in everyone knows, or knows of, me. There is even a large number of people who think I am super cool for some reason or another, but I am MOST DEFINANTLY NOT a popular person. Even alot of the people who think I am a really cool person also hate me, because I am stuborn, and I own alot of those douches in arguments...Also I openly call people things such as douches, and penis faces, and posers, and sheep/sheep f*ckers all the time. Because the are all conformists with no real ideas or morals of their own. Also I am an elitist, and people don't like that. The point is, people can know the **** out of you, and even think you are cool, but that doesn't mean they like you.

At my school, cool is judged by how wasted you get in the weekends.

My school is weird, there isn't really cool people and uncool people. You either just like someone or you don't.
#23
In college, there really is no such thing as "popular" or "cool" unless your on the football team. Just be yourself and its all good.

At my school, it's how much you get drunk or how much you go to starbucks- I don't do either of them.

In my school, coolness was determined by who could wear a big floppy pimp hat and zebra-print coat with the most style.

I have been out of school for 8 years and it is the same thing at work. Everyone has their cliques.

Younger Clique:
How much you can drink, how much you talk ****, how many women you take home

Anti-Social Clique:
How much you DON'T talk to people and how moody you are

Chick Clique:
How much you show that you try to show off that you can do anything better than a man and how much you complaint about things being unfair.

Gamers Clique:
WOW hours played, shunning anyone that doesn't play, and Case modding

Old Crusty Clique:
How much you put the youngsters in place, how many stories you have of WWNam, and How long you have been in.

I am sure I missed some but hey it's a start.

In my school it appears to be the most obnoxious people that are the 'popular' ones. It's very funny to me how everyone who wants to be popular looks exactly the same: gelled short hair, vibrant coloured shirt, and jeans.

Granted the group of people I hang out with seem to have the same idea too: long-ish hair, darker much more baggy clothing, not caring about acne... etc.

Popular kids really are annoying...
#28
I've never properly noticed until thinking about it now, but my school is mainly made up of different cliques (like other people have said). Basically the school I go to at the moment is a senior secondary/college (final 2/3 years of pretertiary education) and nearly everyone who goes either went to one of about 6 or so different high schools. So really the groups have continued on from how they were in each of the high schools.

But yeah I have noticed that some of the people, who might be considered more 'popular', usually are the more louder people or do some of the more stupid things. TBH, as long as I have a select few people who I can really call friends and trust, I couldn't care less whether I was perceived as being cool or w/e by my peers.
