Let me introduce you to a word if you aren’t already familiar with it. The word is PRO-PIN-QUITY. You’re more familiar with its cousin proximity, which too means nearness but more so in time and order. The nearness with which pro-pin-quity is more often associated, is the forming of relationships, which has two dimensions: 1) the physical and 2) the psychological. Physical pro-pin-quity says that the more physical exposure you have to a person, the greater the likelihood of you getting to know them and, possibly coming to like them. Psychological pro-pin-quity says that the nearer you are to someone on characteristics and qualities such as worldview, religion, politics, and education, the greater the likelihood of you becoming friends with that person and forming a long-term relationship with them.
