Abstract

We investigated Turkish high school and university students' perceptions of their relationships with their parents and friends in two studies using cross-sectional and retrospective methods. Subjects in both studies rated 31 items describing their relationships with one significant other from two perspectives: their own point of view and that of their relationship partner (mother, father, or best same-sex friend). Results indicated age-related trends for perceptions of development of relationships with significant others. Retrospective reports revealed greater degrees of perceived equity or self-favoring inequity than did cross-sectional reports.
