Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In the late eighteenth century, "temples of friendship" began to appear in the parks of ruling families. Built in the classical style, these rotundas were designed to convey messages between rulers and their family members, and perhaps also visiting dignitaries. As gathering places, they imposed rituals of interaction on the courtly elites. This paper investigates the function of court architecture in communicating state ideology, centering on the Freundschaftstempel at Sanssouci and the Khram druzhby in Pavlovsk from the 1760s through the early 1800s.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: 143 open-ended responses were coded for termination reason and termination method used. Five reasons emerged: betrayal, disapproved traits, disapproved behavior, competing relationships, and increased distance. Four methods emerged: purposeful avoidance, fade away, hostile interaction, and direct request. Friendships terminated for betrayal were likely to end through purposeful avoidance. Friendships terminated for increased distance were likely to end through fading away. Conflict strategies were examined. Friends reported engaging in avoidant and distributive conflict styles during termination.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper presents research conducted on the factor structure of rules in friendship relationships. Based on the previous research of other authors and the process of collecting the rules that young adults use in their friendship relationships, an IR-1 self-assessment measure was developed that consisted of 141 friendship-related rules which was applied on a large set of subjects (N=501) in the age of early adulthood. A factor analysis of the IR-1 items revealed five dimensions of rules in friendship relationships that were labeled benevolence, sociability, appropriateness, self-control, and self-directedness. The NEO PI-R inventory, which measures the personality dimensions according to the five-factor model of personality, was applied on a smaller subset of subjects (N=114) together with the IR-1 measure. Many statistically significant correlations were uncovered between the dimensions of interpersonal rules on the one hand, and the personality dimensions and their facets on the other hand, most of which were related to extraversion and agreeableness. The five uncovered factors of interpersonal rules were used for the development of a self-assessment instrument IRF-2 with 60 items. In an additional study (N=61) the variables measured with the IRF-2 instruments were correlated with measures of friendship quality and the results indicated that the use of positive rules in friendship associated with the dimensions labeled benevolence and sociability had the largest positive influence on the quality of friendship with a best friend.
