據“中央社”17日報導,新的研究發現,對感情較沒自信的人,較傾向在社群網站上發表情感強烈的內容,例如宣稱擁有“全世界最棒的男友”,或是其它類似的幸福宣言。

報導稱,這一類的人也可能較喜愛炫耀自己的感情關係,或是監控另一半的臉譜網(Facebook)動態。

美國賓州歐布萊特學院(Albright College)心理學助理教授席德曼說:“研究結果顯示,感情依存自尊程度較高的人,需要向他人、伴侶或是自己展現,自己的感情關係'沒有問題',藉此證明自己'很好'。”

研究人員觀察受試者與感情有關的“臉譜網”使用習慣,例如傾向上傳彼此的照片,以及與另一半在網絡上的互動等。

此外,受試對像也接受心理學中的人格五大特質(大五)測試,即外向性,情緒不穩定性,開放性,和善性和嚴謹自律性。

研究結果顯示,個性較內向的人,較可能使用“臉譜網”來“炫耀”。席德曼說,相較於內向的人,個性外向者可能較喜愛與人面對面分享信息。

情緒不穩定性高的人,也較可能使用臉書監控另一半或是炫耀自己的感情關係。

席德曼說:“正如我們預料,神經質的人一般較可能在感情關係中陷入妒忌。”

Albright College Research Reveals Connection Between Relationship-Contingent Self-Esteem and Facebook Activity.

July 31, 2014

Reading, Pa. – Posting adorable couple photos and saccharine-sweet shout-outs to your significant other on Facebook is one thing.

But new research from Albright College has revealed that some lovebirds are using the popular social media platform for more nefarious purposes, including bragging about their romantic relationship and keeping tabs on their partner’s activities.

Albright assistant professor of psychology Gwendolyn Seidman, Ph.D., working with now Albright alumna Amanda Havens, surveyed Facebook users in romantic relationships and found that those satisfied with their relationship are more likely to use Facebook to post couple photos and details of their relationship, as well as affectionate comments on their partner’s wall.

Individuals high in Relationship Contingent Self-Esteem (RCSE) – an unhealthy form of self-esteem that depends on how well your relationship is going – are also more likely to post affectionate content. But these individuals also felt the need to brag about their relationship to others and even monitor their boyfriend or girlfriend’s Facebook activities. And for those high in RCSE, having something go wrong in the relationship is an even bigger blow to their self-esteem than it would be for someone low in RCSE, said Seidman.

“These results suggest that those high in RCSE feel a need to show others, their partners and perhaps themselves that their relationship is ‘OK’ and, thus, they are OK,” said Seidman.

For this study, participants were asked to complete a survey about their Facebook behaviors and motivations. Researchers also measured the Big Five personality traits, which include openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. The findings were presented at the Society for Personality and Social Psychology conference in Austin, Texas, and the Association for Psychological Science conference in San Francisco, Calif., earlier this year.

According to the researchers, individuals high in neuroticism are also more likely to use Facebook to monitor their partner and show off their relationship. “This is what we expected, given that neurotic individuals are generally more jealous in their romantic relationships,” said Seidman, who suggests these individuals may use Facebook as a way to lessen their fears of rejection and anxiety within the relationship.

What researchers didn’t expect is that extraverts – of whom past research has shown generally have more Facebook friends and are more active users – are less likely to monitor their partners or make affectionate posts. Introverts, however, are more likely to post affectionate content and are more likely to snoop on their significant other.
