AN INVESTIGATION OF ROMANTIC JEALOUSY AMONG BLACK UNDERGRADUATES
Abstract:This study examined the relationship between jealousy and self-esteem, insecurity, external locus of control and sex. The sample consisted of 128 undergraduates who completed four self report inventories. A step-wise multiple regression analysis indicated that self-esteem and insecurity accounted for 28% of the total variance in jealousy. Contrary to prediction, however, external locus of control did not account for a significant amount of the variance in jealousy. Results are discussed in terms of the contributing roles of each predictor variable.
