This study investigated the differences between social-comparison jealousy and romantic jealousy. Findings support a view that sees more value in differentiating situations that evoke jealousy than in attempting to differentiate the experience of jealousy vs envy.

The experiments discussed assessed the effects of mood on symptom appraisal, health behavior self-efficacy, outcome expectations, and perceptions of vulnerability. The authors argue that mood may be an important determinant of care seeking, adherence, and recovery from illness.

Assuming that people often hold the abstract goal of acquiring accurate feedback but recognize that acquiring favorable feedback can make the self-evaluative process more comfortable, the authors posited that low-level construals (of how action is performed) would elicit greater self-enhancement motivation than would high-level construals (of why action is performed.  Results suggest that the level of abstraction at which people construe self-evaluative situations can influence their feedback preferences.

Two studies are presented that challenge the evidentiary basis for the existence of evolved sex differences in jealousy. The results show that a sex difference in jealousy resulting from sexual versus emotional infidelity is observed only when judgments are recorded using a forced-choice response format.

The studies reported in this article examine the role of emotional abilities (assessed with both self-report and performance measures) in social functioning. Implications for analyzing how emotional abilities contribute to social behavior are discussed, as is the importance of incorporating gender into theoretical frameworks and study designs.
