Abstract:
The purpose of the present investigation is twofold: (1) to develop a measurement scale of intimacy; and (2) to compare self-reports of intimacy across four types of relationships using the same conceptualization and measurement. Intimacy is conceptualized in this study as a component of the internal working model of relationships. This model is assumed to include components of self, relationship, other, and social world in general. The instrument used in this study was designed to measure qualities of the first three components. Two hundred fifty-one late adolescents completed the measure three times, once describing each of the following relationships: (1) mother; (2) father; (3) same gender peer; and (4) opposite gender friend, dating partner, or spouse. Repeated measures ANOVAS and post hoc Tukey analyses revealed two trends: (1) adolescents reported less intimate relationships with their mothers than with other relationship partners; and (2) males reported more intimate relationships than females, especially with their fathers.
