The current study examines whether intelligent adolescents are liked more by their peers, does this likeability assessment remains constant over time, and do intelligent adolescents like certain people or everyone? For this purpose, we recruited seven classes of adolescents at the beginning of the first school year. We administered an intelligence test and gathered peer-reported information regarding the liking relations. To examine the dynamics of such associations, we repeated the measurement three months and one year later. The results of the Temporal Exponential Random Graph Model revealed that intelligent adolescents are liked more. However, these highly intelligent adolescents did not reciprocate such relations, as they liked fewer people than those who were less intelligent. This finding was stable both across short- and long-term and could be explained by the fact that those who are intelligent, tend to only like other intelligent peers, representing a fewer number of individuals. Our results suggest that intelligence is important in the explanation of the relation of liking.
