I've been playing around with my mini rosetta recipe. I'm not sure, but the pairing properties of hydrophobic surfaces seem to display a pairing affinity similar to a Boolean AND gate.

x1 x2 | result
00 | 0
01 | 0
10 | 0
11 | 1

r1 r2 | result
philic philic | repel (away from each other)
philic phobic | repel (away from each other)
phobic philic | repel (away from each other)
phobic phobic | attract (toward the center of the phobic core, and close to each other)

Yes, because philics need have room and repelling everything. Only phobics are more social and want to be together.
