    I liked that friendship article. I think I’m a “sampler” or maybe a “compartmentalizer” – or maybe both; my friendship diagram probably looks like the sampler except instead of one person at the end of each spoke there’s a tiny little compartment at the end of each spoke. Fascinating. I mean, not sure what I do with that info or why it matters but… neat.

      I’m definitely a sampler. They say at the end of the article that they suspect personality has something to do with which kind you are, and I would think that introverts would naturally be samplers, since introverts prefer one-on-one interactions.

    I wonder if our friendship model changes over time. During HS and college I had “close knit” friendships then it seemed to shift to ‘compartmentalized’ in my early-mid 20s, now, at 32, I definitely think I’m more a sampler.
