Quote from kurokaze
Well it's deffinately proven that gentics/gender play a role in the choosing of friends. i once read in an scientific article that girls form friendships mostly just to belong to a group and that boys form friendships based on mutual gain (kind of like give & take).
Although from personal experience I've concluded that the saying "birds of a feather stick together" is true, since most of my friends have something in common with me and each other
that was my two cents hope it was useful smile wink grin


My friend's and I are like from a different race.

So being from different races doesn't mean you can't have stuff in common with one another smile

Of course not. I guess all that this is saying is that genes affect personality greatly, and the type of people you're attracted to. And in this case, it depends on the individual.

Oh kickin wow, that's why people hate me its in the genes, can we get injections for that. NOT.

If friends made by your gene tends, I am out since I hold no race as not one not to talk to.

In this place skin colour was the last thing mom use to notice and use to tell people that.

If you want friends there is one lust outside your door and it has nothing to do with gene's, but everything to do with you the person and your heart eyes

Obviously, whatever you do in life is influenced by your influences (which include DNA, body, enviroment, experiences in life, and whatever else you can throw into the mix to create a person).

Personally, I could care less. I hang out with people I like. Sometimes we have nothing in common, so far as I can tell - but we get along and have fun.
Of course all those influences made me a person capable of having good friendships, I suppose.

Bump...

NO, I don't think that it's influenced by DNA...

Since I had to transfer to different schools a lot of time, I always had to make new friends,
It's easy enough, because they are pretty much the ones that approaches me, and I consider everyone that I know as a friend...

But, for the friends that I hang out with, they have the same interest that I do, it might be, Sports (basketball), games, etc...

I don't think I could make a statement about this claim without reading the study myself and confirming if it has any absence of connectivity to other research or not. There is so much pseudoscience out there which falls prey to itself for the sake of confirming itself. A big thing I think that makes the distinction is a phrase that many studies avoid. Correlation is not causation.

Quote from ladybrasa
I guess, before I would choose a stance, I wonder where this article came from and what the specifics of the actual journal article are. The quoted article is a little vague to base a good opinion on.


The above. The quoted article is indeed very vague. I can only have a proper opinion about the subject if I have a dependable study to base my opinion on, which is not the case here.
