The Key To Having Lots of Friends Is . . . A Large Brain?
Apparently the key to being popular ISN’T being really good at football. Nope . . . you just have to have a LARGE HEAD.
An evolutionary anthropologist at Oxford University just finished a study that found a person’s number of friends was connected to the size of their BRAIN.
The theory here is that people with a larger orbitomedial prefrontal cortex in their brain are better at being able to step outside of themselves and figure out what other people are thinking. That makes them better at meeting and keeping friends.
The study also found that the average person has about 148 friends . . . at least, that’s the average amount they could list off, and the average amount that the brain can handle.
