Making new friends? Phooey!

From the Wall Street Journal:

A study published in February in the British Journal of Psychology looked at 15,000 respondents and found that people who had more social interactions with close friends reported being happier—unless they were highly intelligent. People with higher I.Q.s were less content when they spent more time with friends. Psychologists theorize that these folks keep themselves intellectually stimulated without a lot of social interaction, and often have a long-term goal they are pursuing.

 I’m not such a friendly old chap;
I do not enjoy the backslap.
It ain’t that I’m smart.
I’m just an old fart
who wants to get on with his nap!
