Cluster and chi-square analyses are made of the data from the author's (1961) study of 17 previously unacquainted college students who lived together for the 4 mo of the experiment.

The findings suggest that the commonly reported balance within a population may be attributable to a single subgroup and that subgroup membership and norm formation can outweigh preferences for balance.
