Top 10 Reasons Why Smart Classmates are Better Than Popular Classmates

The Top Ten
1 Popular classmates are mean and judgmental

Though the given stereotypes for popular classmates are, in most cases, true, I won't say that the smart ones are never popular. I've seen many popular kids being smart too (fairly good in academics or at least satisfactory), but then they get arrogant for being popular as well.

They are! Not everyone, but very nearly. They judge you if you don't wear makeup, are smart, or if your vocabulary is advanced enough to confuse them.

I dislike some smart kids as well, but usually, they are popular too.

2 Smart classmates are more successful in the future

I'll laugh my ass off when I see how the people who tormented me turn out in the next 10 years. I will have no remorse for them.

Having a lot of friends in high school will probably mean nothing. Having a good education will and will most likely prevent you from working at Burger King.

When I drive to McDonald's in my Mercedes Benz, I'm going to look at the person who took my order and say, "Wow, I never knew popularity meant low income." Can't wait to become a lawyer and say that! Okay, I won't say that. I'll smirk.

3 Popular classmates only care about social life and gossips

I don't know. The ones in my year level usually care about assignments but barely revise for tests.

4 Popular classmates act fake

There are a lot of people who put up a front, pretending to like everyone or portraying their life as perfect. That's something I've never been able to do. Manipulation can get you places, though, and I guess it could be interpreted as smartness because you know how to get to the top.

However, clothes and makeup are not fake. I use my outward appearance as self-expression, to reveal myself rather than hide it.

5 Smart classmates have more experiences about frustration

So true. As a "smart" student myself, I've experienced frustration every day at school. I can't flip someone off during class or even tell them to go away because they might tattle on me, and I would get in trouble.

I can't skip P.E. even though it's a free pass to getting bullied. I can't skip useless homework. I can't get any lower than Cs...

6 Smart classmates have better taste in music

While everyone else is listening to that noise on the radio, I'll be listening to alternative stuff. Y'know, Of Monsters and Men, Imagine Dragons, The Lumineers, etc.

I have to say, the music some popular kids think is good is absolutely ridiculous. Music nowadays is like, "OoHOooHh Ahhha lalA Bep pop BoooP F mEe babYyYy."

Well, that is an exaggeration, but for our ears' sake, please don't play your distasteful music in the cafeteria!

I love alternative rock and I am proud to be a nerd!

7 Smart classmates are usually stronger on the inside
8 Popular classmates don't have a life

Well, I am popular and smart, and I do have a life - a life that I'm living right now. So, please rethink what you say.

9 Popular classmates use more pointless slang words and dirty curse words than smart classmates

"On fleek" and many more. I have only touched the tip of the iceberg.

10 Smart people are polite
The Contenders
11 Popular people are constantly on their phones
12 Popular people are more likely to bully

This is true for me. Not all of them are mean and judgmental, but most of them are always shouting and complaining.

13 Smart people are more mature
14 Smart people will know what you are going through
15 Some popular people are spoiled

Some, not all. But we can all agree with this.

16 Popular people will hate you if you win an argument against them, because smart people have better points
17 Popular classmates don't have any friends just sports teammates
18 Smart people may be able to handle situations more effectively
19 The only reason most of the popular people are popular is because of their looks
20 Smart people tend to have a better sense of humor
21 Smart people don't have to be with others to be happy
22 Smart people are your go to for homework help
