COUNT query produces unintuitive results?

I dont understand this: “SELECT COUNT(*) as count, relation FROM tutorial”

It returns:

“results”: [
“count”: 6,
“relation”: “friend”

To me intuitively the query says: “get the count for everything (which is obviously just a single result)” and then get the relation… which should be multiple different results.
What’s the trick to understand this?

In this case, COUNT() essentially infers that you are grouping all values. If you like the output to include full list of relations you can use the following;
) FROM tutorial

Also, to get the count for each relation:

SELECT COUNT(*), relation
FROM tutorial
GROUP BY relation
