Personal History Differences between Family Type and Agemate Type Affective Relationships among Female College Students.
Takahashi, Keiko
Two studies traced the social relationships from childhood to adulthood of family-attached and agemate-attached Japanese students. Study 1 aimed to clarify differences between the two types in their reports about social events and relationships in early childhood, elementary school, junior high, high school, and after. A total of 84 female college students completed the Affective Relationships Questionnaire (ARQ) and wrote life histories. Analysis of 15 personal histories indicated differences between the two relationship types. In study 2, a more rigorous methodology was used to replicate the first study. A Personal History Questionnaire was administered to 83 college sophomores who also completed the ARQ. The questionnaire was composed of 37 items covering all matters about which the two types of students had differed in the previous study. Students differed by type on 11 of the 37 items. Findings were consistent with results of Study 1. It is concluded that the subjects' retrospective histories of past relationships were consistently influenced by their present affective relationships. (RH)
