Attraction II. Love A. Sternberg’s Love Triangle (Robert Sternberg, 1986) Sternberg suggests that love has three components: 1. Intimacy – feelings of closeness 2. Passion – physical attraction and sexual arousal 3. Commitment – a desire/decision to maintain a relationship Combine to produce 7 forms of love Different combinations produce different types of love Only passion: infatuation Only intimacy: liking Only commitment: empty love (failing marriage) Passion, intimate, commitment: “ideal” love B. Passionate Love: Arousal & Attributions Berschied and Walster (1974) What leads to passionate love is physical arousal and you attribute the arousal to the person/schema you think you can love (type) Implies misattribution of arousal to person E.g., Dutton and Aron (1974) First study: in mountains, either male or female research assistant approach male participants in the woods Were walking across either stable bridge or unstable bridge Shown picture that they had to explain with a story, told they can call to find out more Found that men on unstable bridge and female researcher saw more sex and called to talk to woman Second study: male participants came to lab, female researcher pretending to be participant comes in and he has to focus on her Told either male or female will get electric shocks, feels like a tingle or feels painful Shown picture (from first study) Painful shock men were more aroused and talk about sex in the picture Then asked how attracted men are to female researcher, found that painful shock men were more attracted
