Connection number

Hello coaches,
I am currently doing the exercises on connection. I am listing the people in my circle and assigning a connection number to them.

Something has come up for me in that I am searching for my level of connection with each individual and finding that I am having trouble pin pointing this. Could you please provide some guidance in how I assess this.

Also, at first glance it seems like my connection to authors and teachers is stronger than my in person relationships. Is that because my relationship is somewhat one sided with teachers and that there isn’t an interaction where they disappoint or fall short of my expectations?

Thank you.
