Studied the effects of the direction of comparison on the evaluation of current relationships and the attributes considered in evaluating relationships. Human subjects: 22 male German adults (university students). 20 female German adults (university students). Ss were asked to compare their current “real” partner with their “ideal” partner in either the real-ideal or the ideal-real direction. Satisfaction with real partners and interest in other partners were determined after real-ideal or ideal-real comparisons. The results were analyzed statistically. This is Part I of the report.
