  1. HS popularity :

    Just want to say that to my mind, that study is being misconstrued. The popular kids are not necessarily the cool kids. And it’s the popular kids — not the cool ones — who are most successful. Which makes sense. The cool kids are often not particularly intelligent or hardworking; rather, they have a certain image, and usually a certain level of hotness (girls) / athleticism (guys). The actually substantively popular kids may not be the coolest, but they are social, relatable, hardworking, and kind — in other words, likely to do well in the real world and not just in the high school fishbowl. Obviously, painting with very broad strokes, etc., but it drives me nuts that articles on this study are conflating popular with cool.

  2. Just a comment that I was probably one of the least popular, fattest, ugliest kids in high school and I’m by far one of the most successful now. I really came into my own about a year after graduating college.
