Correlates of Interpersonal Attraction.
A study assessed the relationship of the independent variables of interpersonal attraction to the dependent variables of feeling good, relational safety, and uncertainty level. Subjects were 75 elementary and secondary school teachers, 61 communication students, 18 child development professionals, and 8 service club members. Each subject completed scales measuring interpersonal attraction, uncertainty level, feeling good, and safety with a randomly assigned target person in mind. The results showed that social attraction had a moderately high independent predictive power concerning uncertainty level, safety, and feeling good. Physical and task attraction also contributed significant variance to those measures. (FL)
