Relationship Orientation, Jealousy, and Equity: An Examination of Jealousy Evoking and Positive Communicative Responses
Unformatted Document Text:  Relationship Orientation and Jealousy 15 other. Evoking jealousy can serve the function of eliciting time and attention from the other in communal oriented relationships. While no gender differences were found with provoking jealousy, gender differences were found in positive responses to jealousy. Results suggested that females had more positive responses to feeling jealous than males. For females, feelings of jealousy can lead to strengthening the relationship through positive communicative responses to feeling jealous. Exchange and communal orientations were examined with positive responses to feeling jealousy. No differences were apparent among high and low exchange oriented individuals where jealousy can be a cost. When feeling jealous, exchange oriented individuals may seek rewards, but responding positively to jealousy may not be a salient avenue for them. Individuals high in communal orientation however, did report positive responses to feeling jealous. Individuals who are communally oriented may recognize that the other used jealousy to meet some of their needs, and that being responsive to the needs of the other is a major concern in intimate relationships. Individuals high in communal orientation also attempted to evoke jealousy as well as experiencing positive responses to jealousy, indicating support for the idea that intimate relationships are communally based. STUDY TWO Thus far the research project has addressed reciprocity from an individual perspective, but not from a comparative, relational perspective. In order to explain how equity influences the processes and to further develop the communication strategies utilized in evoking jealousy a second study was conducted. Building from the Study 1 results, Study 2 examined feelings of equity, relationship orientation, positive responses to jealousy, and communicative strategies used in evoking jealousy.

STUDY TWO
Thus far the research project has addressed reciprocity from an individual perspective,
but not from a comparative, relational perspective. In order to explain how equity influences the
processes and to further develop the communication strategies utilized in evoking jealousy a
second study was conducted. Building from the Study 1 results, Study 2 examined feelings of
equity, relationship orientation, positive responses to jealousy, and communicative strategies
used in evoking jealousy.
