Learning Objectives and Study Guide for Test 2 At the conclusion of Chapter 7, students should be able to: 1. Define friendship, noting its affective, communal, and sociable aspects. Differentiate friendship from love using the five components of rewarding intimacy (respect, trust, responsiveness, capitalization, and social support) with special attention to the complexity of social support in close relationships. 2. Identify the rules of friendship and reflect on how likely we are to follow them and whether they are linked to relationship success. 3. Highlight a few aspects of infants’ relationships. 4. Describe Selman’s model of friendship development and identify the stages of Buhrmester and Furman’s socioemotional framework. Know the perspective-taking capacity associated with Selman’s model and understand whether the key concepts of this cognitive model complement or clash with Buhrmester and Furman’s model. 5. Portray relationships in the adolescent period of life including evidence from experience sampling and attachment studies on the shift from parents to peers, the stages in the social organization of adolescents’ peer relationships, and the key functions of adolescent peer relationships. 6. Comment on intimacy in the relationships of young adulthood and discuss how it might change during the transition to college. 7. Explain the nature of dyadic withdrawal with friendships in midlife and detail how it affects men and women. 8. Review evidence that seniors have smaller social networks and noting factors that may contribute to this trend (barriers, disengagement, and socioemotional selectivity). Identify reasons why the socioemotional selectivity position currently fares well as an interpretation. 9. Reflect on why women’s same-sex friendships are more intimate than men’s. Explain the role culture plays in inhibiting intimacy in North American men.
