dc.description.abstractThe study examines how perceptions of infidelity may be mitigated by other correlates such as gender-related traits, and mental health traits. The study utilizes a sample of 302 college students, 76% of which were female and 24% were male. In addition to the personality and mental health measures, participants completed a 19-item checklist that assessed their perceptions of specific items that could potentially be construed as infidelity. Several hypotheses were made in regards to perceived infidelity predictions based on gender, on personality, and on mental health and their mediating relationships. Results were mixed regarding support of the hypotheses. Implications and suggestions for future research are discussed.
