I kinda do... but on a bad way...(sometimes they deserve it!)

In real life I treat them different. That does not mean that I treat unpopular people bad! I try to be objectiv and judge everybody on his personality, not on his reputation or his appearance. But whenever I meet someone really popular I am a bit afraid of him. If he has a bad opinion of me, he can just tell all the others what a freak I am- and, of course, everybody would believe him as he is "cool, smart and popular". I try to hide my fear and to behave naturally whenever I talk to someone popular, but I think I am a bad actor... In fact I like the "normal" and the "unpopular" people more as I donīt have to fear them. Maybe Iīve got some kind of inferiority complex^^

Yeah, i kinda do. I know its not a good thing, but I even refuse to take their hand. Expecially a guy in my class who really thinks he's above the rest, ive never taken his hand, no amtter how many times ht's told me too. But actually I treat everyone I dont know the same way, but those who think they are better, I kinda look down on them xD

Derf, where's the maybe option?
I only treat "popular" people different if they treat me different. By which I mean, if they're assholes to me because I'm not popular, then I reserve the right to be a bitch right back.

NO !!!

In real life and on dA, the answer is both no. In both, we're all just people, I treat people based on how they treat me and how the act towards others. With that basis, I decide how much if at all I want to interact with them. Nobody's above anybody in my opinion, though I won't lie, if I ever met Colin Farrell, I might be a little star stuck and stumbly :drool: but that's different...

In real life, I tend to think of them badly first, because of so many bad experiences with the "popular" people. Every single fucking one of them are the same douchebags. There would be some nice ones here and there, but in the end they all end up being corrupted into lying, conniving bitches.
Most of 'em, anyways.
On deviantArt, no. I treat everyone equally, depends on how they treat me.
xvelvett Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2011   Writer
no, i think "popular" people are just the same as regular people. they think that they are popular when they are just the same as everyone elses.
brandrificus Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2011
Personally , I think popular people , are popular for a reason. Wheather it's because they are outrageously attractive , extremely friendly and helpful , incredibly athletes , or amazing artists.......but...Whatever attracts a their following , it is how they react to that attention, that either makes them your friend and someone to look up to , or someone you are simply jealous of and whom you despise and roll your eyes at .
InsanityEnsues999 Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2011
Or they're just hot and they bask into the attention, which makes them yearn for more, making them into attention whores.

Which is the case for most...
People at my school are popular because they're hot or some shit. Also because they don't know how to keep a dick in their pants or their legs closed :]
Ashmaster2494 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2011
I voted yes because I actually treat them worse. The popular people in my school are all assholes. >=(

I actually had to do a work for my English class. In a group of four people, I did 3/4 of the job, I told everyone exactly what they had to do, and they somehow managed to mess EVERYTHING up in the oral presentation. Just one of the girls that was in my group helped me a little. The other two, both "populars", did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I was ashamed today because of how the presentation was going, even though I had given them sheets with EXACTLY what they had to say, they totally fucked everything up. I was the only one who seemed to know the subject we were talking about. Plus, the "popular" guy that was in my group is, thanks to the teacher, who made the groups, the ONLY PERSON I HONESTLY HATE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. And she has put me in his group TWICE. FML.

I feel like in the Naruto series, when he's told he's in Sasuke's group because Sasuke is at the top of the class and he is the very last. YES, I AM SASUKE.

Will have to give myself a shot of low self-esteem after this, or I might become as arrogant as him.
Watashi-No Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2011
I honestly used to, but it's really only the idiots and evil ones I treat differently.

Instead, I'd say I treat my friends differently, or rather I act differently with them.
bethchidwick Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2011

Nope -- I don't think I do.
Hamda-AlRais Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
to me .. human is human no matter who he r
and treating "people" depends on how they treat me

i'm noice but i'm nice to everyone unless i dont like them...but i have a habit of being nice even when they are mean so yeah...basically nice to everyone i guess.

DA or real life,I dont care if they are popular or not. I only care about their personalities.
FaeLynWing Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
At first I thought this applied to real life thn I realized maybe you meant DA, too.

In real life I tend to treat very one the same way until they treat "unpopular people" unfarily. Then I call 'em out and take 'em down. No on deserves to be treated differently just because they're not "popular".

On DA I don't even look at a person's stats/member status until after I've done what I went to their page to do.
Mizashi Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
On both dA and in real life, I always treat EVERYONE with respect. To popular artists I give a bit more respect to them because feelings of admiration are mixed in with it. :)
Momma-san Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
on da everyone gets treated the same, I'll ask anyone anything..
in life I have a tendency to make people equal,
comfort the disturbed/ disturb the comfortable?

I've been both sides, and popularity seems to relie on some outside force most the time,(money, cars, power, drugs, your parentage) and then it requires some concideration as to why they has an interest in me, or mine.
but everyone is met with respect, at least to begin with.
Emotional93 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Student Writer
People in life or people on dA?
On dA I don't, most appear to come by popularity accidently.
In life I don't either. Just the way I behave around them is different (I'm usually cautious).
At my school there really isn't those "popular" cliques as in high school, the girls that are into popular stuff I talk to sometimes but we are just very different people.
HeelerInBoots Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Only if they're full of themselves and act rudely towards me and my friends, other than that no they're just people.
InspiraSean Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Most the time if I see someone who has a nice picture I will fave it no matter what....but say if its on someones page who has 1000 views and been a member for a year I'd normally leave a comment and check out there other work where as if it was someone more popular with say 30,000 views and a member for 3 months then I normally wouldnt bother with a comment or looking at there other work because obviosly they are gettin plenty of traffic anyways and most the time they dont ever respond because of too many comments and what not already posted, ya know?
Gwendolyn12 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes. And often for a reason.
EachSecret Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
there aren't many 'popular' people where I am but when I do encounter someone like that....I do treat them a little differant.

I dont kiss up to them or anything...I just feel sort of awkward around them (especially if theyre popular for the wrongs things ie. gossip)
micky3846 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Student Photographer
I'd have to say yes.. but i wouldn't be nicer to them, i probably wouldn't talk to them at all.
Like high school all over again (Y) aha.
darialiveson99 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011   Photographer
In real life, yeah, I do. I treat them in a "why do you think you're more than us, we're all equals!" kinda way. On devart I treat the popular people good thought because the popular people are the best artists (most of the time) and it's good to be friends with them.
Aikiyc Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
In terms of real life, yes.

... Not in a 'good' way, per se. I don't glorify them. They don't need their egos to be stroked by yet another person.
TheDancingCarrot Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
If you mean in real life, then yes I do :XD:
If you mean just on dA, then not usually no :)
Splozy Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011   Digital Artist
Yes I tend to try avoid popular people for the most part, But you always find out after you have met them anyways. So I think it can vary from person to person or my mood....or theirs.
bacaanca Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
To be honest, I treat people based on whether or not they are kind people that I like or not. Whether they are popular or not is irrelevant.

LionThatLaughs Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
They are just people... they don't have to be treated another way. I would even treat not popular people better cause the whole star world (Hollywood etc.) is feeling superior and doesn't deserve nice words.
J-u-d-a-s Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
Nope, I bow to nobody regardless of status,never have done never will! :XD:
Chemical-Cupcakes Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
I can't really answer that, because it all depends on how they treat me.
People who are popular can still, actually be very nice.
But others, (The fake nice ones) They'll set you up for humiliation.
WinterSmith-Angel Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
I'm with you on this ^.^

You said it better than I could have ^.^
Well say if I meet a cosplay that I really like I may be a little nicer to them, but I don't treat them too differently, however I am guilty of wanting a picture X3
OctodogPhotography Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Nope. :) They're still normal people just like everybody else. DA puts way too much emphasis on popularity.
