Examining Predictors and Consequences of Information Seeking in Close Relationships
The management of information in close relationships plays a critical role in our well-being (e.g., S.). Since relational partners often desire to be“in the know” about one another, the relative absence of inquiry into the process of information seeking in close relationships is puzzling. Recently, W. Ickes, J. W. Dugosh, J. A. Simpson, and C. L. Wilson (2003) examined that process and showed important ways in which the motivation to acquire relationship-threatening information may be harmful to relationships.
