Adolescents’ Interpersonal Relationships with Friends, Parents, and Teachers When Using Facebook for Interaction  [PDF]
Shih-Hsiung Liu, Mei-Chun Yin, Tsung-Hsien Huang
Creative Education (CE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2013.45049
Abstract:

The purpose of the study is to investigate the adolescents’ interpersonal relationships with friends, parents, and teachers when using Facebook for interaction. A total of 740 junior high school students were invited to fill in a questionnaire and 673 questionnaires were available. Data were analyzed using one-way analysis of variance and paired-samples t-test. The analytic result confirms that adolescents with high frequency use of Facebook for interactions can expand their interpersonal relationships with friends than those who with low frequency use, regardless of real-life or virtual relationships. However, their real-life interpersonal relationships with parents may weaken if overly use Internet tools for interactions. Another finding, eliminating the factor of the time on Facebook use, reveals that the adolescents’ real-life interpersonal relationships are stronger than virtual interpersonal relationships, regardless of with friends, parents, and teachers. Combining the above two findings, it is worth noting that the real-life interaction with parents may reduce if overly use Internet tools for interactions. This study contributes to the literature by investigating the adolescents’ relationships with friends, parents and teachers and indicates the potential program when adolescents using Facebook use for interaction. This study, thus, further recommends that parents should be concerned their children about Facebook use.

Brand Relationships: A Personality-Based Approach  [PDF]
Helena M. Nobre, Kip Becker, Carlos Brito
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2010.32026
Abstract: The authors investigated the relationship between brand personality and brand relationships. The conceptual model was based on the hypothesis that brand personality may nurture specific consumer-brand relationships and that these relationships may influence the quality of the ties that consumers develop with brands. An instrument from intimate interpersonal relationships was used to measure consumer-brand relationships. An SEM analysis conducted on a sample of 733 consumer-brand relationships, involving nine highly known brands of different product categories, gave support to the theory. The research offers two significant contributions by: 1) Emphasizing the role of consumer-brand relationship in understanding multi-brand, symbolic consumption and 2) Offering a holistic perspective in the understanding of brand personality.
Let’s Be Friends: National Homophily in Multicultural Newcomer Student Networks  [PDF]
Kishore Gopalakrishna Pillai, Constantinos N. Leonidou, Xuemei Bian
Social Networking (SN) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/sn.2019.81002
Abstract:
Understanding the relational and network dynamics among newcomer networks is important to devising appropriate strategies that will maximize the productivity of the incoming workforce. Nevertheless, there are limited empirical contributions on newcomer networks with few studies examining newcomer networks in international environments. This study focuses on national homophily and examines whether ethnic identity salience, self-efficacy, individualism and ethnocentrism are associated with the occurrence of national homophily in newcomers networks. Using a multicultural student sample drawn from newly formed networks, the study found that ethnic identity salience and academic self-efficacy are associated with national homophily positively and negatively, respectively. Individualism is not found to be related to homophily while, contrary to our hypothesis, ethnocentrism is found to be negatively related to homophily. Through its examination of the effect of attitudinal variables on homophily, this study contributes to the broader literature on homophily and provides implications for managers and researchers.
Perception of Work, Relationships and Career: A Study with Undergraduate Students
Fábio Nogueira Pereira
Interpersona : An International Journal on Personal Relationships , 2011,
Abstract: This study researched how a population of 40 undergraduate students attending a career planning project in a private college perceived work, career and their relation with interpersonal relationships. The questionnaire revealed that most subjects perceived work positively, reported through four different perceptions of work, reported perceiving a social dimension of work, but about half of it reported that they didn’t perceive people in general working in a way that showed being concerned about changing society. When the subjects listed people who worked with the same values they held, reports ranged through parents, bosses and friends; when asked about people that didn’t have the same values, they listed work-mates, peers and siblings; when asked about most important people for their career, they listed their parents separately, teachers and children. Data suggested a wide participation of relationships in processing information and constructing conceptions related to work and career.

The results are pointing that the Brazilian sample is above 01 standard deviation for the following measures: CDI=5, CDI=4, CDI positive, AG=0 e p>a+1. Brazil also presents the largest measure for: CDI=5, CDI=4, CDI positive e AG=0.

Amizade na Infancia: Um Estudo Empírico no Projeto Caminhando Juntos de Vitória
Paula Coimbra da Costa Pereira,Agnaldo Garcia
Interpersona : An International Journal on Personal Relationships , 2011,
Abstract: Literature on childhood friendship is quite diversified, focusing on various aspects (social, emotional and cognitive, etc.) revealing the complex nature of the subject. This study aimed at investigating different aspects of friendship in children in order to contribute to the formulation of a theoretical model for understanding friendship as a complex system of relations. Forty children aged seven to ten years, participants of the “Projeto Caminhando Juntos” (Cajun), in the city of Vitoria, were interviewed. This project offers several courses for children and adolescents from six to seventeen years old enrolled in schools in the city of Vitoria and aims to integrate children socially, avoiding them to stay on the streets, promoting physical education, moral and social children from disadvantaged communities. The results refer to friends network (including the best friend), space and time, activities and communication with friends, psychosocial processes (social support, competition, aggression and reconciliation), cognitive and affective processes (perception of friends and relationship and friendship and emotions) and the development of friendship. These aspects were discussed in light of their possible integration into a theoretical model of childhood friendship. We conclude that wide theoretical models of friendship and interpersonal relationships are necessary to guide research in the area.

Sensory Processing Difficulties and Interpersonal Relationships in Adults: An Exploratory Study  [PDF]
Nili Ben-Avi, Moshe Almagor, Batya Engel-Yeger
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2012.31012
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between sensory processing difficulties (SPD) which refers to detection, modulation and response to sensory input and interpersonal relationships. 139 students participated in the study and completed two self report questionnaires: The Adolescent/Adult Sensory Profile measuring sensory processing abilities as expressed in daily living and the Hebrew version of the MMPI-2. The results demonstrated strong associations between different patterns of SPD and a wide range of symptomathology, including anxiety, somatization, distress, and demoralization, difficu- lties in social interactions, family, work and therapeutic relationships. The findings of this study indicate that extreme sensory processing patterns are strongly related to distress and psychological difficulties. Therefore, it is recommended that clinical therapists relate to sensory processing as part of their dynamic conceptualization of patients’ difficulties. This also emphasizes the significance of interdisciplinary treatment that takes sensory processing into consideration in order to create an intervention program that considers the person’s specific sensory needs and their relationship with personality.
