Affinity

Affinity

How much you like or love someone. The degree of affection between people. How willing you are to share space with someone or something. The more you like someone, the more willing you are to be close to them physically. The less you like someone, the more space you tend to put between yourself and them. This term can apply to the feelings between two or more people, and also to the feelings a person has for some object or idea. For example, if a person really likes math, you might say they have high affinity for math. If a person dislikes vegetables, you could say they have low affinity for vegetables.

Affinity is one of the corners of the ARC Triangle. (Problems of Work, Chapter 6)
