Newswise: Three Faces of Teen Popularity: Being Feared, Being Loved, and Being Feared and Loved

Three Faces of Teen Popularity: Being Feared, Being Loved, and Being Feared and Loved

Florida Atlantic University

In novel longitudinal study, researchers identified three distinct types of teen popularity: prosocial popular; aggressive popular; and bistrategic popular or Machiavellian. These naughty and nice Machiavellian-like teens were the most popular and were above average on physical and relational aggression as well as prosocial behavior. Just like the “Mean Girls” in the iconic American teen comedy, they are aggressive when needed and then quickly “make nice” to smooth out any ruffled feathers.
