A Social Pyramid is a model of social relationships. The people with whom an individual has the least amount of social intimacy are placed at the foundation of the pyramid. At the top of the pyramid is the individual. And on each subsequent layer going down, the individual has less and less intimacy. For example, the person you interacted with while in line at the grocery store is at the base of your pyramid, but your spouse or lover would be very close to the top.

The philosophy of Social Pyramids holds that the energy a person puts into the base of the pyramid is magnified at the top. Thus, if an individual gives positive energy to the people with whom he/she at the base of his/her pyramid, it will be reflected in his/her personal life. Conversely, the same can be said for negative energy.

It has been said that the what one brings to one's Social network is what one creates with one's Social Pyramid.
