With Friends Like These…

I was sharing some witty banter with my good friends George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Jon Hamm when we started talking about the fact that not only do we tend to look a lot like our close friends, we also resemble each other genetically. According to a recent study, “our friends are as similar to us genetically as you’d expect fourth cousins to be.” My fourth cousin Ryan Gosling will totally get a kick out of that.

+ Don’t trust you genes to pick the right friends? You could take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which among other things, can serve as “a powerful framework for building better relationships.” The only problem according to Vox is that the test is totally meaningless.
