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. As predicted, persons scoring higher on Sensitivity to Rejection disclosed less. This finding is consistent with sensitive persons' feelings of vulnerability in social situations. Those scoring higher on Affiliative Tendency disclosed more.
