Also the structural types of networks, which were determined by the intimacy range and the number of network members, and its relationship with the pattern of resource acquisition prescribed by the degree of intimacy were examined. Results showed that there are four patterns of acquisitions extracted from the combinations of mainly two cases one is the acquisition of resources from more intimate individuals, and another is the acquisition from individuals of moderate-degree of intimacy.
