Abstract

Situational variables influencing affective self-disclosure within the acquaintance intimacy level were examined in simulated dyadic interactions with 40 female and 36 male undergraduates. Females expressed more feelings than males, while across sexes, Ss disclosed more positive feelings as respondents than as initiators. Significant interactions revealed that affective self-disclosure is situation specific, with Ss responding with positive feelings being the most facilitative context for disclosure.
