Relationship Orientation, Jealousy, and Equity: An Examination of Jealousy Evoking and Positive Communicative Responses
Unformatted Document Text:  Relationship Orientation and Jealousy 17 RQ2: Will feelings of equity (underbenefited, equitable, and overbenefited) and being communal oriented be related to using positive responses to jealousy? RQ3: Will feelings of equity (underbenefited, equitable, and overbenefited) and being communally oriented be related to evoking jealousy? Method Participants Participants were164 students (91 men, 70 women, 3 did not report sex) enrolled in an upper division communication studies course at a large Mid-Atlantic university. The mean age was 21.34 (SD=2.41). The mean length in a romantic relationship was 23 (SD=20.49) months. Participation in this study was voluntary. Procedure Participants completed a questionnaire packet including measures of equity, relationship orientation, positive responses to jealousy, and strategies of evoking jealousy. Participants were asked to fill out the questionnaires with regard to the romantic relationship in which they were currently involved. Measures For each of the 19 ways of attempting to evoke jealousy, participants were asked to rate on a Likert-type scale (1 being never and 7 being always) how often they had attempted each item. The 19 behaviors were factor analyzed to identify underlying factor structure. A principle component analysis produced two factors with Eigenvalue greater than one. However, since 18 of the 19 items loaded on the first factor (see Table 1) and the Eigenvalue of the second factor was low, we viewed the measure as unidimensional (Eigenvalue=10.19, 53.66% of the variance accounted for, M=56.01, SD=26.99, =.95). One factor that could have influenced the mean

Method
Participants
Participants were164 students (91 men, 70 women, 3 did not report sex) enrolled in an
upper division communication studies course at a large Mid-Atlantic university. The mean age
was 21.34 (SD=2.41). The mean length in a romantic relationship was 23 (SD=20.49) months.
Participation in this study was voluntary.
Procedure
Participants completed a questionnaire packet including measures of equity, relationship
orientation, positive responses to jealousy, and strategies of evoking jealousy. Participants were
asked to fill out the questionnaires with regard to the romantic relationship in which they were
currently involved.
Measures
For each of the 19 ways of attempting to evoke jealousy, participants were asked to rate
on a Likert-type scale (1 being never and 7 being always) how often they had attempted each
item. The 19 behaviors were factor analyzed to identify underlying factor structure. A principle
component analysis produced two factors with Eigenvalue greater than one. However, since 18
of the 19 items loaded on the first factor
(see Table 1) and the Eigenvalue of the second factor
was low, we viewed the measure as unidimensional (Eigenvalue=10.19, 53.66% of the variance
accounted for, M=56.01, SD=26.99, =.95). One factor that could have influenced the mean
