A Muir Commons member who has studied group dynamics and such has made the
statement that the hardest group size to work with is the 10-200 size. The
theory goes that it is pretty easy to achieve intimacy with 10 people and
noone would expect intimacy with 200, but in between is an awkward number.
Seeing as how most cohousing groups have 30-60 adults, this is sort of an
interesting theory. I realize that this has absolutely nothing to do with
the reason for the original message.
