Although self-disclosure after a negative experience may be good for our adjustment, we also feel hesitant to do so. This study investigated the relationship between self-esteem and hesitancy to disclose negative information about one's self. One hundred and fifty-five undergraduates imagined self-disclosure to a friend of high or low intimacy. They then answered a questionnaire concerning hesitancy to self-disclose negative information to friends, as well as expected negative consequences of such self disclosure. Main results were: (1) Low intimacy strongly affected the hesitancy. (2) Factor analysis of the negative consequences found three factors: interpersonal and intra-personal negative-effect, and no positive expectation. (3) Hesitancy of high self-esteem students was most affected by the interpersonal factor. Impression management may be the reason. (4) On the other hand, low students tended to feel hurt after negative self-disclosure. Theirs was affected by the intra-personal and no positive expectation factors. Defensiveness may be the reason. The results were discussed from the viewpoint of adjustment when people have had a negative experience.

This study investigated responsive verbal words (RVW) in daily conversation between acquaintances. The questionnaire was conducted with Japanese undergraduate students.Types and frequencies of RVW were analyzed and described. It was hypothesized that (a)some favorable RVW would be used in daily conversation more, (b) less favorable RVW would be used less in conversations with acquaintances. However, some inconsistencies were detected with the data of actual RVW frequencies and evaluative impression for each RVW (feeling good or bad about each RVW). Some RVW were more favorably evaluated but not used so often, whereas other RVW were used more but less favorably evaluated. The results were discussed from the viewpoint of unconsciousness of positive/negative effect of RVW. Further researches on RVW are needed for prospecting possible social dilemmas in line with habitual and unconscious RVW usage patterns.
