The interest and ability (or even compulsion) to network but not necessarily for your own direct benefit--more like an ability to see the needs or interest of someone (even if it's someone you've just met) and connect them with someone else who can help. For example: you're at a party and you find out that a person you know is moving to Africa for business. You automatically remember that an old friend of yours has an uncle who lives in that same African town so you immediately offer to help them make that connection.
What function is that related to?
My husband does this all the time, can't seem to help himself as if it were a subconscious thing--the scanning of his knowledge database for matches. It's interesting and I'm just trying to figure out where that comes from.
