Confidence in Communication and Self-Attitude as Factors of Satisfaction with Relationships

3235

Abstract

The paper presents outcomes of a research on the correlation between one's confidence in communication, self-attitude and his/her satisfaction with relationships with significant others. The tested hypothesis was that self-attitude and confidence are the interrelated characteristics of personality, with self-confidence as their common element, and that positive self-attitude and high levels of self-confidence in the individual correlate with his/her satisfaction with the relationships with significant others. As it is shown, self-attitude and self-confidence become integrated, resulting in the person's deeper understanding of the relationships and of his/her role in them, and reflect themselves in the integral indicator of relationship satisfaction. The paper concludes that the outcomes of current research enrich the existing views on backgrounds and conditions of the person's satisfaction with relationships with significant others.
