CSUSB professor interviewed about the value and impact of close friendships

In an article about the number close friends a person has, writer Shana Lebowitz interviewed Kelly Campbell, an associate professor at California State University, San Bernardino, who studies interpersonal relationships.

Lebowitz wrote that Campbell “told me the quality of your relationships generally matters much more than the quantity. One person could report having one close friend or family member and be just as happy as someone who reports having five or 10, Campbell said.

The size of your inner circles depends on a lot of factors - including your personality (extroverts tend to maintain more intimate relationships), your gender (women tend to maintain more), and your age.

“Campbell explained that, as you get married and start a family, what often happens is "your network size is drastically reduced." Consciously or not, you starting cutting out so-so relationships from your life to focus on the most fulfilling ones instead.”
