Social Labeling:The Preps "Popular" or "Preppy". Is there a difference?
The social label that I decided to research was the "Preppy" group.
They think they are above everyone else.
They're really studious and usually dress nicely.
I would associate them with being rich.
They're an exclusive group and only let other preps into it.
They are very much judgmental, they gossip and they have to be the best of the best. They're not overly nice people and are seen as air headed and dumb.
Many people would assume the word "Preppy" is considered to be a style instead of a clique, while "Popular" is the term used for the person who acts like a Prep.
The definition of "Popular" means "frequently encountered or widely accepted". While the definition of "Prep" means "a student or graduate of an expensive prep school or a person resembling such a student in dress or appearance"(Merriam-Webster Dictionary).
