The Friendship quotient
Friendship is an important part of normal social functioning, yet there are precious few instruments
for measuring individual differences in this domain. In this article, we report a new self-report
questionnaire, the Friendship Questionnaire (FQ), for use with adults of normal
intelligence. A high score on the FQ is achieved by the respondent reporting that they enjoy
close, empathic, supportive, caring friendships that are important to them; that they like and are
interested in people; and that they enjoy interacting with others for its own sake.
