    isn’t it something like 150? (which i still maintain is a ridiculous amount… but there you go…)

      As a matter of fact, it’s EXACTLY 150.

      It’s estimated to be between 100 and 250 with a commonly cited value of 150.

      The Dunbar number is also roughly equal to the population of pre-historic farming villages, and the size of a company in a modern army.
