The present investigation studied the correlates of role (discloser vs. facilitator) and the personality characteristics of Sensitivity to Rejection and Affiliative Tendency in self-disclosing behaviors and social judgments and evaluations of the partner following self-disclosure. Results indicated that disclosers, compared with facilitators, talked more, and had more breadth and depth of disclosure. Facilitators were more authoritative and dominant in their remarks.

Those scoring higher on Affiliative Tendency disclosed more.
