People whose conversations with others are full of awkward silences might have neural patterns that are out of sync.
There might be a way to increase your chances of clicking. Maybe clicking can be triggered by consciously matching someone's posture, vocal rhythm, facial expressions, and even eyeblinks.
MORE IDEAS FROM Why You Click with Certain People
When you click with someone, everything the other person says rings true. Your speech rhythms match and conversation flow without a single awkward silence.
If you feel like you're "on the same wavelength" with someone, there's a good reason for that. Neuroscientists call it interpersonal synchronization.
We resonate with some people more than others.
Neural homophily - where like befriends like - as measured by brain activity, underpins the phenomenon of clicking. It's why you and that stranger can laugh at the same things, or see the logic in the same argument.
But homophily also describes how the same things like age, ethnicity, and education level can draw people together, meaning that the traits made people friends, and the neural activity was secondary.
With nativism and conflicts between religious, ethnic, and racial groups on the rise globally, the results suggest that social integration, rather than segregation, may boost cooperation among humans.
“Priming a common group membership may be a more powerful driver for inducing prosocial motivation than increasing empathy,” said study lead author Inbal Ben-Ami Bartal, an assistant professor of psychobiology at Tel-Aviv University in Israel.
When a loving mother holds the newborn baby in her arms for the first time, she intuitively knows to care for the child. A relationship is formed, a bond created. The child will emerge in abilities, babbling, creating imaginary scenarios, the capacity to collaborate, feel pain, understand emotions, discuss differing positions, argue convictions, until the child grows up and can meet the mother in an adult relationship of empathy, intimacy, and perspective-taking.
The mother-infant dance will shape the child's affiliative bonds throughout life.
