Example text

If empirical warrant is needed for our focus on the dyad, it exists in at least two forms. If one observes the size of informal groupings in public places (as James did, 1953), the vast majority are dyads. If one asks people to keep track of what they are doing at various times of the day, of the occasions on which they are with other people, about half the time they are with only one other person (Sorokin & Berger, 1939; Tidwell, Reis, & Shaver, 1996; Wheeler & Nezlek, 1977).

On the earlier trip, Outcome Interdependence 19 they had learned from the Society members that the best sounds can be heard while the sky is still dark but just before dawn.

Let us first focus on Kyoko’s outcomes. 5) and Outcome Interdependence 35 then sort out the components of variance in those deviations. However, we can avoid that step by calculating the sources of variance from the “raw” outcome values and then reproducing the original matrix by adding in her mean value. In this way, we initially set aside the matter of her average level of outcomes until after we determine the sources of their variance. We first determine that Kyoko’s outcomes in the “Clean” column are, on the average, eight units larger than in the “Not” column.
