    I must say I find it hard to judge wether someone is popular or not here... Who are we talking about?
    And what are we talking about. I get the impression that there are some members here who get a great deal of respect, but calling them popular seems inappopriate...

    I don't think we're talking about anyone in particular.

    In spite of my INTP profile, I can be quite S'ish, and examples would really help me understand here. You, CC, Edahn, that helped.
    Could it be that age plays a role, and thus that identification is more important than admiration?

    If you've shared your picture on the forum, and you are found to be attractive, I'm sure you'll get way more attention than you would have otherwise, but it's not crucial.

    As Dale Carnegie says in "How to Win Friends and Influence People", "You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you." I'm sure we can see a lot of people going about both methods here. If you're good enough, you can impress people, but they won't be your friends. You'll just be creating groupies and enemies.

    To be popular, I think you should be unique and cool. You should have something that people can always count on you for. And it helps to make other people feel like you respect them and care about them. And if you love a person, they will see you as a God.

    That's right. No one in particular.

    I think that which makes a person popular online is pretty similar to that which makes someone popular IRL.
