There is no special “chemistry” between people.

Getting along with people is an accident.

Its an accident of shared experiences.

An accident of shared perspectives on the world.

What might more commonly be known as shared values.

These are determined by factors completely outside your control.

Who were your parents?
Where did you grow up?
Were you rich?
Were you poor?
Was it wartime?
Were you lucky?
Was it generally warm?
Etc…

None of this is controllable and we try to ignore it.

We pretend that everyone is equal. That everyone could get along with everyone else.

Its not true.

You will get along with those that are like you.
