Most people want to be liked. Being popular is good for the ego and a great confidence booster. People who are popular get invited to more parties and functions and always have a small following where ever they go. If you are liked people value your opinions and they want to be in your company.
You can be popular for many reasons, some can be genuine and sincere and some can be simply in the hope that your charisma or fame will rub off, which is probably the most common reason. People who are very popular include actors, musicians, singers, sports personalities and comedians. People who are relatively popular might include writers, scientists and entrepreneurs.
Having celebrity status is all very well but what if you’re not a star and you’re not famous and you’re not talented or extraordinarily intelligent? Most people rely on being a joker because comedians are very popular people, but can you always be funny? It’s not easy for the average person to become popular and well liked, but there is a way.
