Relationship Orientation, Jealousy, and Equity: An Examination of Jealousy Evoking and Positive Communicative Responses
Unformatted Document Text:  Relationship Orientation and Jealousy 13 and high exchange oriented individuals and evoking jealousy ( χ ²(1,82)=5.51, p<.05). Therefore, Hypothesis one was supported. The second hypothesis predicted high communally orientated individuals compared to low communally oriented individuals will make more attempts to garner jealous responses from their partners. High communal orientation was defined as one standard deviation above the mean (M=51.51, SD=6.81, N=36), low communal orientation was one standard deviation below the mean (N=36). Results of a chi square indicated a significant difference between high and low communal oriented individuals on communication to evoke jealousy ( χ ²(1,71)=7.41. p<.05). Hypothesis two was also supported. The first research question was concerned with gender having an effect on attempts to evoke jealousy. There was no significant gender differences in attempts to evoke jealousy ( χ ²(234)=.51, p>.05). The second research question addressed potential gender effects on positive responses to jealousy. This analysis revealed a significant difference between how much males and females used positive communicative responses to feeling jealousy (t(232)=2.10, p<.05) with female response to jealousy scores (M=43.94, SD=8.51) being significantly more positive than males’ scores (M=41.47, SD=9.45). The third research question asked whether exchange orientation would affect positive communicative responses to feeling jealousy. No significant difference was found between individuals high and low in exchange orientation and using positive responses to feeling jealousy (t(78)=1.46, p>.05). Similarly, the fourth research question addressed communal orientation related to positive communicative responses to feeling jealousy. This analysis revealed a significant difference between individuals high in communal orientation and those low in

The second hypothesis predicted high communally orientated individuals compared to
low communally oriented individuals will make more attempts to garner jealous responses from
their partners. High communal orientation was defined as one standard deviation above the mean
(M=51.51, SD=6.81, N=36), low communal orientation was one standard deviation below the
mean (N=36). Results of a chi square indicated a significant difference between high and low
communal oriented individuals on communication to evoke jealousy (

Hypothesis two was also supported.
The first research question was concerned with gender having an effect on attempts to
evoke jealousy. There was no significant gender differences in attempts to evoke jealousy
(
χ
²(234)=.51, p>.05).
The second research question addressed potential gender effects on positive responses to
jealousy. This analysis revealed a significant difference between how much males and females
used positive communicative responses to feeling jealousy (t(232)=2.10, p<.05) with female
response to jealousy scores (M=43.94, SD=8.51) being significantly more positive than males’
scores (M=41.47, SD=9.45).
The third research question asked whether exchange orientation would affect positive
communicative responses to feeling jealousy. No significant difference was found between
individuals high and low in exchange orientation and using positive responses to feeling jealousy
(t(78)=1.46, p>.05). Similarly, the fourth research question addressed communal orientation
related to positive communicative responses to feeling jealousy. This analysis revealed a
