Description

Little research has examined the development of Pfeiffer and Wong's three dimensions of jealousy, more specifically their connection to experiences in adolescence. This study examines sociometric unpopularity, residential moves, and friend betrayal in early adolescence as predictors of emotional, cognitive, and behavioral jealousy. Factors of rejection sensitivity, generalized anxiety, and trust in friendships are also analyzed as potential mediators. Hypotheses will be tested using a 17-year study of 184 youth and their close peers.
