Your Most Awkward Friends May Save Your Life

“The research reports a creative and compelling test of Ein-Dor’s hypothesis that, despite their insecurity, highly anxious and avoidant people have the potential to contribute to group dynamics in beneficial ways — especially with respect to detecting and reacting to threats that put everyone in the group at risk,” Fraley said.

But it’s less clear how that dynamic plays out in everyday life.

“A lot of friendships form serendipitously,” Fraley said. “But, if I were in a position to choose my friends from scratch, I would probably choose people who are relatively secure and well-adjusted.”

Ein-Dor said many would probably prefer more secure friends.
