Popular People Are Actually Wired Differently: Here’s How
In other words, if they cared about popularity, they were more likely to be popular themselves.
During the experiment, lead researcher Noam Zerubavel and his colleagues interviewed 26 members of two student clubs and asked them to rate how much they liked the other people in their club, which helped them rank the members according to their popularity.
Then, they asked the students to lie in brain-scanning technology and look at pictures of their peers, as well as a morphed version of all the other faces together.
The students were asked to press a key as soon as they recognised whether a given face was a real person or a morphed version – but in fact, the scientists were actually looking at how their brain activity varied according to the faces’ popularity, or lack thereof.
The results showed that people in the experiment had more brain activity when looking at the face of a popular person, regardless of whether they personally liked them or not.
As a result, the research showed that we may be drawn to people simply because they are popular, even if we don’t really like them, with the science explaining that this tendency ‘motivate[s] proximity and preferential attention to popular individuals as well as incentivising interactions with them’.
Not only that, but how much someone reacted to the face they were presented with also depended on how popular they were themselves, with the more well-liked students able to determine how the other students rated them.
In other words, if you’re popular, you’ll know it – and you’ll want to hang out with other popular people. Being popular will also draw less popular people towards you and get them to pay you more attention, whether they like you or not. Well, films likeMean Girlshave definitely taught us that important life lesson.
