    Should friendship be forced? How exactly does "friendship" or "having friends" work across different parameters?

    Anxiety Leads To Lower Social Status (and Niacinamide Fixes It)

    "Or, in formal terms, “trait anxiety” predisposes individuals to a lower social status and lower performance in competitive social groups. In fact, researchers at the Swiss institute École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne have discovered the part of the brain that links anxiety with social...
