    What's interesting is that the study states that the quantity of friendships is more important for people in their 20's, and then quality becomes more important for people in their 30's. I think this goes a little past introversion/extroversion

    As an introvert, I wouldn't say this is a rebuttal of extroversion or an appraisal of introversion. The point of article is that the quality of a friendship trumps the number of friendships a person has, and that makes sense. However, there are people (both extroverts and introverts) who are able to cultivate larger numbers of high-quality friendships -- and if you want to try to argue this mathematically, then perhaps the "average" quality is lower than that of someone with a very small, close-knit friend circle...but that's not the point.

    I think extroversion vs. introversion is less a measure of the ability to form meaningful friendships than it is a question of whether a person is comfortable with more or less people (full stop) around. An extrovert could enjoy being in crowds of unknown people, but still have just a close-knit circle of friends. Just my two cents.

    Introvert here..It's quality not quantity for me.

    A close knit circle of quality friends is definitely the best way to go, but a vast network of acquaintances carries many benefits as well.

    Well, to be honest, I can tell you from experience, only having 4 friends isn't all that great either.
