友人関係の理想と現実のズレ及び自己受容から捉えた友人関係の満足感 The Satisfaction in Peer Relationship in terms of Self-Acceptance and the Discrepancies between Ideal and Real Peer Relationship.
The present study investigates satisfaction in peer relationship in terms of self-acceptance and the discrepancies between ideal and real peer relationship. A total of 611 junior high school and high school students (male290, female321) participated in the questionnaire. The results show the following three significant points. (1) The more they recognize the discrepancies between ideal and real peer relationship, the less they are satisfied with their peer relationship. In particular, when they do not have enough trust in their friends to disclose themselves, although they want to do so, their satisfaction in peer relationship is small. (2) The higher the level of self-acceptance, the more they are satisfied in peer relationship. Particularly, when they can feel themselves valuable, they are satisfied in the relationship. (3) Ones with high self-acceptance scores, even when they recognize big discrepancies between ideal and real peer relationship, feel more satisfied than ones with low self-acceptance scores. These results suggest that many experiences they gain from feeling themselves valuable may be important for them to feel satisfaction in peer relationship. (173 words)
