Abstract

Sex differences in jealousy may be a well-studied topic in regard to relationships, but there are relatively few studies on jealousy in the workplace in comparison. This study aims to address the sex differences in how jealousy affects interpersonal relations in an office environment. Recent studies have already shown that there are sex differences in what causes an employee to become jealous of a supervisor or an employer, with men having jealousy more evoked by social dominance and physical dominance and women having jealousy more evoked by social dominance and physical attractiveness, but few studies, if any, have gone to explain how that jealousy affects the interpersonal relationships in the office, specifically to those that the employee may consider "workplace friends". This study seeks to contribute a look of workplace jealousy in the United States as well as adding to the knowledge of how said workplace jealousy could negatively affect the interpersonal relationships.
