Abstract [en]

This quantitative study examined the relation between jealousy, self-esteem, gender and relationship status. Data was collected at Växjö University in the autumn of 2009, with two predesigned questionnaires. From the questionnaire Tennessee Self-Concept Scale created by Roid and Fitts (1988) that measures self-worth, the part Physical self was used to measure self-esteem. Jealousy was measured with the Questionnaire on the Affective Relationships designed by Marazziti et al., (2003). 188 male and female students participated of which 169 were used. A significant correlation was found between jealousy and self-esteem, where low self-esteem correlated with higher jealousy. The study rejected the existence of gender differences on jealousy. There was no evidence that individuals who date are more jealous than individuals in a relationship. The result did however showed a significant relation between jealousy and relationship status, where singles were more jealous than individuals in a relationship.
