Teasing and social affiliation: Correlations between attitudes toward teasing and levels of social affiliation

25 July 1997


This paper examines the relationship between attitude toward teasing and level of social affiliation. The main hypothesis is that negative attitudes toward teasing, as measured by the Four Factor Teasing Inventory (Todd, 1996), will affect wanted levels of social inclusion, as measured by the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation-Behavior (Schutz, 1978). Significant results indicate that the relationship between these variables is more complex than first thought. Conclusions and directions for further research are discussed.
