Laboratory Spokane conducted a social experiment in vulnerability and friendship



The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness

Alan Chatham, with the help of Fellow Coworking and Manners Roasting Company.

We ran an experiment to see how we form a sense of closeness with the people around us. We invited people to join us at Fellow Coworking space and paired them up with a stranger. Then we handed out cards with specific questions, designed to facilitate friendship and connection. It turns out making a friend is as simple as being inquisitive and vulnerable.
