中文摘要:

本研究探討網路親密關係中的自我揭露,透過網路問卷測量受訪者對自我揭露的看法,並進行深入訪談瞭解受訪者如何自我揭露,如何看待自我揭露,以及自我揭露如何影響親密關係。問卷調查發現自我揭露屬多面向概念,受訪者認同揭露私密多於認同揭露情史。自我揭露有助於提升誠信及尊重,但自我揭露與隱私為各自獨立的概念。兩性對於自我揭露或信任感的看法相近,都重視隱私,沒有差異。訪談結果發現揭露內容隨著關係發展而有不同重點,而不揭露也是某種形式的揭露。揭露與溝通工具有關;認真發展關係者多半運用多種溝通工具來保持情感熱度。未來研究可由人格特質角度觀察溝通方式如何影響揭露,亦可由互動的角度觀察主動式揭露與回應式揭露的差異。

Abstract:

This study examined self-disclosure in online intimate relationships. An online
survey was administered to explore the dimensions of self-disclosure, and in
-depth interviews were conducted to further understand how people disclosed
private information about themselves to establish and/or maintain online
relationships and how self-disclosure could affect online relationships.
The survey results showed that self-disclosure was a multidimensional concept.
The respondents disclosed information related to privacy more often than
information related to past love affairs. Self-disclosure increased trust and
respect, but was not related to privacy. There were no sex differences in self
-disclosure. The in-depth interviews suggested that the content of self
-disclosure varied according to the various stages of the online relationships.
Lack of self-disclosure was considered a form of disclosure. Disclosure is
also related to the mode of communication. The interviewees tended to
maintain relationships by using various communication modes. Future
studies can view self-disclosure as a personality trait and explore the
differences of communication modes in self-disclosure. In addition, future
studies can view self-disclosure as an interaction process and examine the
establishment, maintenance, and dissolution of online relationships.
