Abstract

This research examines the extent to which subjects discriminate among their equal, unequal, and best friendships on the basis of values exchanged—stimulation, ego support, and utility—and perceived attraction of the other—physical, task, and intimate. Implications of these results for research on communication in friendship are discussed.
