I Want to share with you a small slice of the scientific work, which was written at the Institute. Something of a theory I published on b17 in the article loneliness. Here is a piece of practical part.
In this study involved 97 people who are in relationships from 3 to 10 years, living together, without children. Among other things I offered to them to assess their relationship by choosing one of two options: "Our relationship failed", "I don't think our relations are excellent." And then in a free form to explain your choice.
All the answers were subjected to simple content analysis. Ie, I uploaded them to a website wordart.com, where the program broke all the text in words, estimate their number and drew such pictures of clouds. The larger the font of the word — the more frequently it is used. For convenience and for fun analysis of the responses of those satisfied with their relationships in form of a green smiley, and those that are unhappy — in the form of red.
I Think you might be interested in and to compare the resulting images. But just in case here is a quote from their work. For convenience, I named the group satisfied with their relationships "P" (positive), and those that are unhappy — "N" (negative). I apologize in advance for the scientific style, decided again not to rewrite. :)
***quote from abstruse scientific work***
In the answers of the group "P" has dominated the use of the words "We", "Friend", "Friend". At the time, as in the responses of the group of "N" dominates the use of the words "Me" and "Not" ("I don't like...", "I miss..." etc.). "Attitudes" also concern a group of "N" more, that is, respondents that assess their marital relationship negatively, talking more about his personal dissatisfaction with the partner and a steady relationship. At that time, as respondents satisfied with their relationships, base their responses on respect for the partner, friendship, sense of community, of togetherness.
This is confirmed by the fact that the responses of the group "P" is more positively colored words ("Fun", "Love", "Together", "Understand", etc.), while, in the opposite group sound more negative words ("Baba", "Tries", "Stupid", "Rest", etc.). br>
striking and the use of personal pronouns. In group "P" are personal pronouns plural: "We", "Us", "We". At that time, as in the second group of personal pronouns singular: "I", "My", "Mine". Along with this you should pay attention to the verbs used. In the first group is for the most part the verbs are plural ("Love" "Respect" "Understanding") and the second one ("Fear", "Try", "Feel"). These figures reflect a greater sense of loneliness in respondents who consider their relationship with a marriage partner failed. And, however, their vocabulary reflects a more pronounced self-centeredness.
it is also Interesting that in the group "P" respondents in their answers were used an average of 94.8 per symbol. At the time, both in the group of "N" — 158,4 character. And combining this with the fact that "relations" concern the second group is larger, we can assume that they are also more willing to talk about them. br>
In any case, pictures in front of you. Insights can also do it yourself ;)
