Chapter 9
Interpersonal Attraction
-One of the simplest determinants of interpersonal attraction is proximity.
-The people who, by change, you see and interact with most often are
most likely to become your friends and lovers
Propinquity Effect
- The finding that the more we see and interact with people, the
more likely they are to become our friends
- Refer to the apartment/resident example
-the propinquity effect works because of familiarity, or also known as:
Mere Exposure Effect
- The finding that the more exposure we have to a stimulus, the
more we like it.
- We see certain people a lot, and the more familiar they become,
the more friendship blooms.
- Of course if you feel negatively toward the person in question,
then, not surprisingly, the more exposure you have to him or her,
the greater your dislike.
-propinquity may soon no longer be a prerequisite for the formation of
relationships. This is due to the existence of online communication via
messenger or dating website or via phone.
Similarity
- we dont become good friends with everyone who is near us in
physical space
- The “fuel” is similarity- the match between our interests,
background, attitudes, and values of those of the other person.
- We are more attracted to people who are like us. (or are we
attracted to those who are our opposites? This is known as
Complementarity)
- Similarity in terms of values and attitudes is an important
predictor of attraction in both friendships and romantic
relationships.
- Not very pleasant to interact with someone who disagrees with us
on everything, but opposite when both the people feel the same
way on important issues, thus we find it more enjoyable to spend
time with that person.
