Were/are you part of any clique and/or part of a stereotype in school?

That one person everyone seems to like that doesn't really fit into a category.

Everyone likes this person, he/she isn't really bothered by a whole lot of anything, usually into a wide variety of things and tries (often successfully) to get along with everyone, dresses moderately and usually has a good sense of humor, probably ... a bit conservative (against smoking, drinking, etc.   more

Normal kids

Neutral, probably the best clique to be (sounds hard to believe) but these kids are regular, they are not snotty and backstabbing like popular kids, but not weird like nerds. They just do regular stuff, no one hates them although the popular kids ma... y think they are better then them, probably 70% of most schools has normal kids. So they are neutral, and even may hang out with other cliques   more

The Cheerleaders

The cheerleader stereotype is that of a small-frame, beautiful hair, feisty attitude, and overall aesthetically pleasing. They are the mean girls of the school, perfectly complimenting the jocks. Cheerleaders sport the most expensive clothing brands...  and handbags and throw the best parties. They too, like the jocks, are known for not being very bright. Cheerleaders usually get away with everything they can muster or get their hands on. Refer to the movie John Tucker Must Die   more

Bullys

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social ... or physical power. Behaviors used to assert such domination can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion, and such acts may be directed repeatedly towards particular targets. Justifications and rationalizations for such behavior sometimes include differences of social class, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, appearance, behavior, body language, personality, reputation, lineage, strength, size or ability. If bullying is done by a group, it is called mobbing. "Targets" of bullying are also sometimes referred to as "victims" of bullying.Bullying can be defined in many different ways. The UK currently has no legal definition of bullying, while some U.S. states have laws against it. Bullying consists of four basic types of abuse – emotional, verbal, physical, and cyber. It typically involves subtle methods of coercion such as intimidation   more

Juvenile delinquent

Juvenile delinquency, also known as "juvenile offending", is participation in illegal behavior by minors. Most legal systems prescribe specific procedures for dealing with juveniles, such as juvenile detention centers, and courts. A juvenile delinqu... ent in the United States is a person who is typically under the age of 17 and commits an act that otherwise would have been charged as a crime if they were an adult. Depending on the type and severity of the offense committed, it is possible for persons under 18 to be charged and tried as adults.In recent years a higher proportion of youth have experienced arrests by their early 20s than in the past, although some scholars have concluded this may reflect more aggressive criminal justice and zero-tolerance policies rather than changes in youth behavior. Juvenile crimes can range from status offenses, to property crimes and violent crimes. Youth violence rates in the United States have dropped to approximately 12% of peak rates in 1993 according to official US government statistics, suggesting that most juvenile offending is non-violent. However, juvenile offending can be considered normative adolescent behavior   more
