Relationship Orientation, Jealousy, and Equity: An Examination of Jealousy Evoking and Positive Communicative Responses

Measure Development
The initial step was to develop a measure for assessing how people actively communicate
in order to engender jealous responses from partners. In the study 1, particpants were asked to
write down ways in which they had attempted to evoke jealousy from a romantic partner. A list
of 662 responses were compiled and examined.
Analytic induction techniques were used to analyze the strategies through which people
attempt to elicit jealous responses in their partners. The coding techniques implemented were
similar to those used by Baxter and Wilmot for their secret tests (1984). This coding technique
required several detailed steps. First, one researcher recorded all unitized segments. Next, the
cards were sorted and placed into conceptually similar categories. All repetitious responses were
discarded. A detailed category description was developed, and all responses were sorted into 3
categories of communication strategies: personal action, verbal attempts, and vicarious attempts.
Personal action attempts were based on the behaviors of the individual (e.g., “Wearing clothing
that highlights my features”). Verbal attempts were based on the individual attempting to elicit
jealousy through words (e.g., “Telling him/her I found a person attractive”). Vicarious attempts
involved another individual (e.g., “Having an opposite friend answer the phone”).
A total of 14 individuals independently coded all of the responses. After discarding the
repetitious responses, 19 behaviors were sorted into the 3 categories. Coder agreement was 88%.
Additionally, the list of 19 behaviors was given to a graduate class to review. No new items
were added however, minor changes were made in the wording of some items for clarity.
Research Questions
RQ1: Will feelings of equity (underbenefited, equitable, and overbenefited)
and being exchange oriented be related to evoking jealousy?
