For example, even if the challenging role of friend is known, does it predict that friends would act actively or passively to the challenged issue? To complete the archetype, the behavioral and cognitive changes of friends after peer discussion should be recorded as well. In conclusion, the experiment provides a general picture of the influence of same-sex close friends on the development of interpersonal romantic identities.
