This study investigated the relationship between daily life events and self-evaluation processes. Two hypotheses were examined. First hypothesis is that task-relevant events would activate one's self-assessment motivation, and this motivation would increase one's preference for others who they usually view as a person to give objective advises. On the other hand, socio-emotional events would activate one's self-enhancement motivation, and this motivation would increase one's preference for others who they usually view as a person to give affective advises. Second hypothesis is that, although higher preference for objective others after task-relevant events would gradually shift to higher preference for affective others, one's preference for affective others after socio-emotional events would stay higher than one's preference for objective others. A total of two hundred and twenty six students (undergraduates, graduate students and nursing school students) completed the questionnaire including a hypothetical situation on either task-relevant or socio-emotional events. The results, consistent with the hypotheses, showed that one's preference for objective others was higher than one's preference for affective others after task-relevant events, but one's preference for affectivity increased gradually. On the other hand, one's preference for affective others was higher than one's preference for objective others after socio-emotional events, and this tendency was sustained. Implications for self-disclosure research, and directions for future research are also discussed.
