Alright, let’s get into social behavior.
So one aspect of social behavior is Attraction.
How do we interact with some of those people
around us? What do we attract to?
Interpersonal attraction is related to how much
we like, dislike, or hate an individual.
Characteristics that influence attraction
between other people include:
Proximity. So most powerful predictor of
friendship, familiarity breeds fondness.
We know that the closer you are to somebody
friends, family the closer you become.
I’m sure you have experiences where you’ve
been stock in the car or a road trip
with some people for a week.
Even a day and being in that close confine quarters
you kind of create this bond of friendship.
So a proximity can actually have a huge role.
I don’t think we always want to acknowledge this,
but physical attractiveness does play a role.
Some attributes are culturally similar
and make individuals more likable.
Physically, how we look even ort of how we present
ourselves is very important in terms of attraction.
So take a shower, comb your hair.
Now, in terms of similarity we know
that if there is some commonality
between the values beliefs, interest
attitudes pretty much almost anything.
You fine some commonality some similarity
that is going to really spark
some interest and can lead to that attraction.
