I could relate to Dunbar’s number the first time I heard of it because I immediately saw the difficulty of keeping up with people in our lives. However, life goes on, many of those connections are lost, and many of them move on. Sometimes, all we need is a small piece of context to remember who someone is and why we could benefit from each other. I asked my AI to remind me about Dunbar’s theory for the following post.
Me> Remind me about the 3 categories of true fans in context of Dunbar number
MyAI> The Dunbar number is a measure of the maximum number of social relationships that one person can maintain. It is often used to explain why humans have difficulty maintaining more than 150 close relationships. The three categories of true fans are 1 true fan who has a deeper connection with you, 15 true fans who are close friends, and 150 true fans who are long-time supporters.
Having a profile to maintain People helps to keep people's information organized and to ensure that you can easily recall individuals in your life. However, AI algorithms will find it more efficient to navigate between people without putting too much emphasis on one person’s knowledge.
Tell your AI about the individual once. The best way to do this is to use LinkedIn URLs of people, particularly if the majority of your contacts that you need to recall are people you already have in your LinkedIn network. You can either enter the URL of the connection’s page, or you can choose to add a paragraph about that individual to send to your AI.
For this example, I sent the following LinkedIn profile links to my AI to stack.
Use any chatgpt (Personal AI’s chatggt) style prompts to fetch information about a person or connections amongst them. AI will automatically determine the relationships among people. Here are a few examples of my chat:
