Overreactions to Interpersonal Events

Participants described and answered questions about situations in which they experienced negative emotions as the result of another person’s behavior. Participants’ reactions to these situations were explained by their perceptions of social exchange rule violations, controlling for the tangible consequences of the events and effects on their self-views.
