Quite popular among my bizfriends because of my extrovert as I always give them any biz opportunity to share. Having effectives networking is my life and biz vision. I totally agreed with a saying whoever is popular deserves attention. Just with one reason, don't want to feel loneliness and this one of the solution to solve midlife crisis. Without attention your life will be driven by depression. Depression is an affection in literature. That is why I referred to Concise Oxford Dictionary_tenth edition_university press, it defined popular as; " liked or admired by many or by a particular person or group, intended for a suited to the taste or means of the general public, carried on by the people as a whole". But in my family, I'm not popular because I always take introvert action as I'm not the eldest.

You have taken a lot of trouble to explain the meaning of popularity and I sincerely thank you for the same. I am glad to learn about your two sides of the coin: extrovert and introvert. You loose nothing, if you become popular among family members. Thanks again for your interesting response.

The qualities you have definitely bring in good lot of friends and that is more than sufficient to measure the popularity. You have not done it, but your friends, colleagues must have. Thanks for active participation here. Have a nice day.

Understanding, thoughtfulness, generosity, kindness and warmth etc are the major factors that make me popular among my family members, colleagues and friends. They love to come to me for help and love to talk to me about their problems when they are in need of help. I am glad for this and vice versa they help me when I need them for help. It is a nice thing to nice and kind to people around me, who are nice to me as well.

The personalities of my friends are varied and I don't seek popularity with any of them. They are friends because we can communicate, laugh, cry, and simply be ourselves. A friend is worth the world to me and I care about them deeply. But, it doesn't matter how many other friends they have or that they do things with anyone else. They have been here for me when I was down and laughed with me when I needed an uplifting. That is a true friend to me and the type of friend I try to be also.

I still remember when I entered my first time to be in school, I already joined many activities in the schools and among our group I'm the popular. Until I reached college. I'm joined dance troup and I was a gymnast too. I won and recieves awards too. Lots of my classmate are envy to me because of my popularity.

You are right. Instead of making friendship, some people are envy of our achievements. They do not stand to gain by being so and best thing is to ignore them. Glad to note you have won laurels at school for your extra curricular activities. Thanks for the response and have a wonderful day.

I was popular among my friends, because I used to accompny with them to movies, restaurants and cultural shows. Sometimes, I used to pay their bills. I was not popular among colleagues because I used to mind my business. Among family members, I am popular among the family members because I used to help most of them and get involved in their problem solving sessions.

I wouldnt say I am popular. I dont have any friends and my family has disowned me many years ago. I like the forums to meet people and I dont think I have been here long enough to be popular. Give me time though and I will be popular here.
