Abstract:

In trial studies of interpersonal relationships associated with interpersonal knowledge, real similarity, and the psychological structure of groups, each member of a group completed multiple-choice, objective questionnaires according to his best knowledge of each other member, and for himself in self-description. Analysis of interpersonal knowledge and similarity which were obtained for 36 3 to 7-man student teams in management gaming competition and for three, 8 patient psychotherapeutic groups in a mental hospital resulted in these conclusions. Interpersonal relationships identified in information and interpersonal learning are measurable processes of acquisition and relative interpersonal discrimination, which vary positively with duration of interaction and similarity, negatively with size of group, and differentially with class of information.
