Eaton, Yvonne M.; And Others
Adolescence, v26 n103 p565-68 Fall 1991
Examined affiliation need and interpersonal closeness in college students (n=74). Need for social comparison declined with age for both sexes; females were more attached to their partners than were males. For females only, adolescents' need for stimulation peaked around age 18 or 19 and then declined, and need for emotional support declined in later adolescence. (Author/NB)
