Making and Keeping Friends
Affiliation seems to be basic to human motivation. Most people are gregarious they seem to need the contact of others. Just as with other human behaviours, there are enormous variations in the strength of the drive to seek contact with others. Affiliation is related to attachment (see Chapters 6 and 14) which is fundamental to so many aspects of our social and emotional development. Friendship and association with others are to do with developing a feeling of security socially and with the search for intimacy in social relationships.
Unless one went to international meetings or visited colleagues abroad, but even then the amount of time for serious talk is limited because there is always much to do and little time to spare. Thus, I usually invite people to come to my laboratory where I can talk with them as much as I wish. Most of the time, I learned ways of thinking and technical details that would have taken months or years to discover by myself. I had several illustrious visitors, but with four of them I maintained a long collaboration. We started working together at the bench and from then on, in addition to our common scientific interests we became very good friends. These were Giuseppe Inesi from the University of Maryland, Armando and Marieta Gomez-Puyou from the Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and Andre Goffeau from the University of Louvain la Neuve in Belgium. I met all of them at international meetings. The longest collaboration I ever had was with Giuseppe Inesi, who became my dearest friend....
The general and most important characteristic of happy couples is that they 'like' each other they are 'best friends' and confidants. When they talk to other people of what they do, they tend to say 'we' rather than 'I'. Nevertheless, they value interdependence. It is important to understand the meaning of this word. It does not mean that they are simply dependent on each other, nor does it mean that they are independent of each other. Rather, it means that they respect and enjoy each other's independence but are, nevertheless, somewhat dependent on each other for intimacy. In other words, as the term suggests, they are interdependent.
His good friend Benjamin Rush (1745-1813), but was quite sure that his enthusiasm for bleeding and purging had been very harmful. Followers of the approach epitomized by Rush were all too eager to treat victims of epidemic cholera (a disease that may cause death by dehydration) with ipecac, vomits of salt and water, frequent doses of calomel, castor oil, and enemas of spirits of turpentine. Although Rush never lost faith in his therapeutic system, many Americans were attracted to healers who offered remedies and regimens that were allegedly safe, natural, and effective.
During these early days, the knowledge of nucleic acids was quite rudimentary among Israeli scientists, as it was hardly taught at the Universities. I decided, therefore, to introduce the subject to our graduate students by giving an extensive lecture course on the chemistry of DNA and RNA, and a more advanced one on molecular biology. In addition, together with Yosef Kimhi, we wrote two detailed articles in Hebrew on nucleic acids and the genetic code in Mada, a popular science magazine that was edited by my good friend Nathan Sharon 49 . The Mada articles became quite popular and were put to use as mandatory reading material by university students.
This rehabilitation strategy is pretty simple. You start by imagining that a good friend of yours is going through the same kind of problem as you are. Your friend has the same kind of thoughts as you do about the problem. Now imagine your friend sitting across from you. You feel empathy for your friend, and you want to help.
Play space, housing is in industrial neighborhoods, upkeep of streets is poor) are less satisfied with their lives, experience more negative emotions, and have more restricted and less positive friendship patterns. There is a relationship between number of nonaccidental injuries to children and the physical conditions of the home which is related to socioeconomic status.
Conditions for performance of a behavior. For example, clients could be requested to role play behaviors and asked whether similar or identical behaviors occur in other situations. Behavior surfeits are often related to behavior deficits. For example, aggression on the part of a child may be related to a lack of friendship skills. It is also important to distinguish response inhibitions from behavior deficits. Emotional reactions such as anxiety may interfere with desired behavior.
One can also try to recruit friends of friends, that is, individuals referred by field representatives and existing investigators, but this procedure offers no particular advantages over a straightforward solicitation of all the investigators in a given area. Your focus should not be on friendship but on which physician's practice is likely to yield the most eligible patients.
By their late thirties most of these career women came to understand the illusory nature of the image of Superwoman who could do it all with grace and flair. Their self-image was more that of the Juggler, who kept many spheres in the air without dropping any or losing a step in the perpetual forward motion. While continually seeking balance, most women found it impossible to give anything like equal priority to the various components of the life structure. In general, occupation was the first priority, motherhood second, marriage a poor third, leisure and friendship a rare luxury, and with all the external tasks to be
Rude tribes and civilised societies have had continually to carry on external self-defence and internal co-operation - external antagonism and internal friendship. Hence their members have acquired two different sets of sentiments and ideas, adjusted to two two kinds of activity A life of constant external emnity generates a code in which aggression, conquest and revenge, are inculcated Conversely a life of settled internal amnity generates a code inculcating the virtues conducing to harmonious co-operation.
Yet, distressing emotions can get in the way of your attempts to improve your relationships. Such emotions can harm friendships, intimate relationships, and even relationships with co-workers or relative strangers. So, along with the obvious ways of working to alleviate your anxiety or depression, shoring up your relationships will also improve your moods.
The single learner hunkered down over a computer offers a number of advantages as a model for education, but it also manifests some weaknesses. It is equally important that learners enjoy an opportunity to learn together in one another's company. If learning is in part a social activity involving the shared construction of understanding, then learners need to work together, and we need to provide opportunities to share perspectives, collaborate, and form friendships. Learners relying strictly on computer-based distance education will be deprived of such opportunities.
The institute was unique in Germany that it lacked an omnipotent elderly director. We were all young. The institute worked well, because we all had just one interest science. One could say the truth. So we criticized our experiments pitilessly, but there was not much cooperation. Klaus Rajewsky and I became friends, we had a mutual interest in literature. Max Delbmck had had close relations to some theoretical physicists. We inherited these friendships. So I felt closer to Janos Hajdu and Bernd Muhlschlegel, two theoretical physicists, than to my other colleagues in genetics. During those years I began a friendship with two persons whose books interested me. One had written a book about his time in Vietnam 30 . There he had worked as a psychiatrist under the guidance of Horst-Giinther Krainick who had been a co-author of my first publications. I had heard Krainick say how much he looked forward to working in this peaceful Vietnam. Now the Tet offensive had ended his life. He and the...

Edward Jenner (1749-1823) was 13 years old when he was apprenticed to a physician. He obtained a respectable medical degree from St. Andrews, but preferred the life of country doctor to a fashionable London practice. Although he was often described as modest in both professional ambitions and intelligence, his mind was lively enough to maintain a lifelong friendship with the distinguished anatomist John Hunter (1728-1793). Thanks to a study of the rather nasty reproductive strategy of the cuckoo and Hunter's sponsorship, Jenner became a member of the Royal Society. In their correspondence, Hunter and Jenner exchanged ideas about natural history and medicine. Thus, when Jenner became intrigued by local folk beliefs about smallpox and cowpox, he asked Hunter for his opinion of the hypothesis that inoculation with cowpox might eliminate the danger of smallpox. Hunter offered the advice that guided his own work do not speculate, do the experiment.
Influential patients, patrons, and admirers. During this period, Galen engaged in public anatomical lectures, demonstrations, and disputes, and composed some of his major anatomical and physiological texts. Five years later, Galen returned to Pergamum, claiming that the hostility of other physicians had driven him from Rome. His critics noted that his abrupt departure coincided with the outbreak of an epidemic that had entered the city along with soldiers returning from the Parthian War. Not long afterwards, honoring a request from Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Galen returned to Rome and settled there permanently. Although strictly speaking, Galen was not a ''court physician,'' he did enjoy the friendship
Third, aside from their cost-effectiveness compared to individual education and skill training, support groups offer other advantages over individual counseling. The group members can serve as role models for each other, sharing methods of solving problems and coping. In these ways, they are at once being helped and helping others, the latter counteracting feelings of helplessness and enhancing feelings of self-worth and usefulness to others. In addition, the support group can lead to the formation of friendships that endure beyond the formal group sessions, helping to populate the participants' natural networks with similar peers.
Thelma Dunn and RRN were good friends, and during RRN's yearly visits to the NCI, they had many discussions about PCTs not agreeing about a true definition of PCTs. TBD contended (as best the author can recollect) that a tumor that contained lymphoid elements with primitive and intermediary morphological stages (as RRN's plasma cell leukemias) was not a true PCT. In hindsight they were both correct. Later, serological and transplantation studies revealed the plasma cell leukemias produced paraproteins in the early transfer generations, but eventually reverted to a more immature lymphocytic cell type that lost the ability to secrete serum protein. The ileocecal PCTs were more stable, morphologically and functionally.
They are both at university, studying Law. They have an important examination in about a week's time which, in the way of Law exams, will take a great deal of work. They tend to work together or not exactly together, but in parallel. They have very different styles of work even though their abilities are similar.
Both aged 26, they had been at university together and now shared a flat. They both had reasonable jobs and had forged a life for themselves with the usual aims and aspirations, vague thoughts of what the future might bring, some reflection on the past and varying degrees of engaging with the day-to-day ups and downs of life. On the day that they were both invited to a party, neither of them was in a relationship.
Alan and Terry had been good friends for years. They worked in the same job as school-teachers in a secondary school. One taught mainly Geography with a few other social studies thrown in, and the other taught mainly History with a few extras. Neither had been particularly ambitious or had sought posts of extra responsibility. In fact, they had rather avoided doing anything extra in their jobs, being quite content to have a relatively easy life, watching their children grow up (they each had two) and having the few extras in life provided by working wives. Their wives were also similar
Jim, Paul, and Wayne are friends and neighbors. All three have teenage daughters who are the same age and also best friends. One evening, the girls are late coming home. Jim, Paul, and Wayne have very different reactions. See how life-lenses influence how the fathers interpret this identical event and respond to their daughters.
I was given the assignment of writing a testimonial to someone who has made a difference in my life, and guess what You're it. I felt pretty weird about this at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea. I don't think I've ever told you how much I appreciate what you did for me in helping me overcome my social anxiety That first year of college was brutal for me. Your friendship saved me from utter misery. My hat's off to you, buddy. They don't come any better than you. Your friendship is incredibly valuable to me. And now before I make myself totally sick, I'd better end this thing But seriously, I appreciate all you did.
The need for affiliation manifests as a desire to be identified with a group and to be well liked by its members. Those of us in whom the need for affiliation predominates tend to place a higher premium on the quality of our relationships than on our own accomplishments or authority. We may be willing to forego achievement and influence for the sake of friendship. This can cause problems in the realm of leadership, where we want so badly to be on good terms with everyone that we find it difficult to make the tough decisions that our organization requires.
But I shall never forget the chill that descended when he returned - my personal fear that I would somehow transgress and be punished by being made to share for some days the icy exclusion of my mother. One transgression would have been any contact with the opposite sex. I went to segregated schools, of course, which was the rule in England, but even close friendship with boys at school was likely to set off parental gloom the grim spectre of ending up in bad company'' was ever kept before me.
