There have been many studies into how people relate to others. Differences such as social status, ethnic backgrounds, financial position, age, and even facial features, to name a few, can greatly affect how two people interact, even without knowing each other. The more things we have in common, the deeper our connection will be.
It’s interesting to watch how this principle plays out in different settings. When interacting with panhandlers, people more likely to support someone we can relate to. In this picture, the two men could practically be brothers. Similar age, facial features, and even the same character moustache – these men can feel an immediate bond.
