Testing the Relationship between Strength of Specific Emotions, Commitment and Identity Salience

Abstract:

This research begins to examine the relationship between identities and emotion from a structural symbolic interactionist frame of Identity Theory (Burke 1980; Burke and Reitzes 1981; 1991; Stryker 1980, Stryke and Burke, 2000; Stryker and Serpe 1982, Stets, 2006.) Stryker (2004) outlines a series of propositions integrating affect and emotion into the key variables of structural identity theory. Stryker provides a series of theoretical propositions that highlight how affect and acute emotions potentially relate to identity theory variables such as commitment, salience, and role performance. This paper is a preliminary examination of current research being conducted integrating affect into identity theory. In this paper we will test the relationship between the strength of the emotional responses’ influence on the salience of the identity both directly and through affective and interactive commitment. Stryker (2004) proposes that a strong emotional response will influence the salience of an identity both directly and through commitment. Each emotion was examined individually to assess the impact and relationship of specific emotions as they relate to these identity theory variables (salience and commitment). The analysis present in this manuscript is based upon a sample of 1100 completed questionnaires obtained in October 2008-March 2009 at a large Midwestern university. Preliminary findings indicate support for the propositions outlined by Stryker (2004) and refined by us for the integration of affect into structural identity theory. Results show support for the hypotheses and this research begins to dissect the impact of specific emotions in structural identity theory.
