3. Recognize the 3 Different Types of Social Connection

  1. Intimate connectedness: This is connection “up close and personal,” typically with a significant other.
  2. Relational connectedness : This is the broader (but still close) connection you have with friends and family.
  3. Collective connectedness –This type of connection describes belonging to a club, professional organization, or even an entire nation.

In general, we need a healthy mix of the above types. However, note that this isn’t universally true.

What matters, again, is that the types and level of social connection you have match your genetic preferences.
