Description

The present study was designed to examine personality as a moderator for how one experiences acceptance and rejection. College-aged participants will be given questions from the Big Five Inventory and then will be asked to rate their responses to different scenarios involving social acceptance and rejection. We will examine how high and low levels of agreeableness, extraversion, and neuroticism predict the emotional responses to acceptance and rejection. We expect that people who score high in neuroticism will have stronger responses to both acceptance and rejection, people low in agreeableness will have more negative reactions to rejection, and we are interested to see if extraversion will show a trend.
