Evidence is presented to confirm in part the hypothesis that in a small group seated in a circle, the greater the seating distance between 2 people, the greater the chance that they will follow one another verbally. Although other factors are operative in determining the sequence of statements made, location and seating arrangements appear to play a considerable role in group interaction. Implications of the findings are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
