difference between dorks and popular kids is the amount of social proof and confidence the popular kids have. Popular kids are like magnets and draw attention... Let me explain to you using this example

Mr X is extremely popular, he attracts many girls around him that talk to him. He enjoys conversations with the females and his other guy friends. he is having fun. Girls and guys alike view this from afar and wonder "what is it that makes him so attractive" therefore generating a sense of curiosity to get to know him. Thus, his social group gets bigger and bigger, and the # of people he knows increases.

On the other side of the spectrum, we have Mr Y. who is extremely quiet and has low self esteem. He has long told himself that he would never be able to attract any kind of friends or females into talking or going with him. He stays quiet for his whole life... Done.

See the difference? Mr X. is confident Mr Y. has low self-esteem.


completely agree... i really dunno why even ask what makes popular kids and "dorks" different...

If you really think "popular" people are destined to fail whereas "dorks" aren't, you're sadly mistaken (and somewhat of a retard).

I have no respect for someone who has zero social skills, as much as I have no respect for someone who has zero intelligence. They're both things anyone should be able to do/have.

It's called adolescence and identity crisis. These kids find importance in defining themselves and who they are, even if it means creating a stark contrast between themselves and a supposedly "oppressed" counter-culture.

The descriptions of what you're saying seem to fall under this topic:

Bullies

All things being equal, it's simply a contention between those who bully, and those who are bullied. When you reach adolescence, they tend to use different terms, but it's still, more or less, the same thing.
