    that's actually rather interesting!- and makes me wonder what that would say about people with hardly any sense of smell (like me!)

    plus- the picture of the puppy that comes with the article is downright adorable!

    Self-expression always seems to gain my admiration the fastest...

    People who attract me are the ones that have the same intrest as me. Like the things I do and can add on to my interests. Whoever pushes my buttons right is my friend, because that tells me that they know me. And if I can do the same, then we're a pair.

    I can't have the same person over and over again, though. Everyone in my little group of friends is different, way different. They all effect me in different ways. It nice.

    (ISFJ) I have a helpful friend: Very generous, and caring...yet she hates people on the inside. She sticks with the people she's comfortable with and hates the INTJ types for no particular reason. Makes you feel comfortable and can become rash and impulsive on cue. (Unique, in that comfortable way )

    (ENTP)I have an outgoing friend: Awesome with conversations and good at opening you up. Loves to go outside and hates to stay in the house longer than needed. Strives for the impossible, and is stuck in the clouds, yet she is best when she hits the ground.

    (INTP)I have a brilliant friend: Unbeleivable and very private. You wouldnt believe a person had a mind like this. Strange and different from the others. Has a good insight on what people do and how they effect people as a whole. Firm opinion but open to change ones mind. Laid back and easy to hang with.

    I have a friend for every occasion.

    So like a swiss-army circle of friends, that must be convenient

    sense of humour, whatever the type of person, I've always found more engaging if they're able to laugh at others and themselves.

    hopefully more at others, and if not, at least a sense of shame

    A sense of compassion is attractive. That's a notch above likeable to me.

    Compassion towards other people or just compassion about something?

    I find it very hard to believe that a faint smell that we don't even consciously notice affects how we choose friends. How can a claim like this be supported when compared to something like coffee? I love the smell of coffee, yet the smell does not represent the taste. I don't hate the taste of coffee but it's definitely not comparable to the smell. That smell/taste is very strong, so how can a smell that we don't even realize we are smelling attract us to someone?

    I call BS.

    It's subconscious. Unless you can give every reason behind everything you find yourself liking in people, then it's likely that at least some of it is subconscious.
