Intimacy.
Morrison, Heather
Intimacy was investigated using the perceived intimacy scores of different scales obtained from the Personal Assessment of Intimacy in Relationships Inventory. Independent variables were gender, age, relationship type, and length of time married or dating. The sample consisted of 32 males and 84 females. Significant interactions were: gender and length of time married or dating for the dependent variable sexual; relationship type, age, and length of time married for the dependent variable sexual; and relationship type and gender for the dependent variable intellectual. Results appear to support the following generalizations: (1) females are more satisfied with recreational intimacy than males; (2) married participants are more satisfied with social intimacy than dating participants; (3) females are more satisfied with social intimacy than males; (4) gender and length of time married or dating should be examined concurrently for sexual intimacy satisfaction; (5) relationship type, age, and length of time married or dating should be examined concurrently for sexual intimacy satisfaction; and (6) relationship type and gender should be examined concurrently for intellectual intimacy satisfaction. Appendices contain all materials used to conduct the experiment including the inventory used. (JBJ)
