Experience and expression of jealousy: Comparison between friends and romantics.
Administered 2 versions of a survey to 186 college students to assess the differences between friends and romantics regarding the experience and expression of jealousy (EOJ). Hypothesis 1 predicted that the perceived appropriateness of the EOJ would be greater in romantic relationships than in friendships. Hypothesis 2 predicted that the EOJ would be greater in romantic relationships than in friendships. Hypothesis 3 predicted that the intensity of jealousy would be a stronger predictor of expression for romantics than for friends. The 1st 2 hypotheses were confirmed; however, the last hypothesis received only tenuous support.
