The purpose of this study was examine to the relationship between anger and jealousy in terms of automatic thoughts and physiological changes. The participants were 37 undergraduate students(14 males and 23 females). Measures used were the enviousness scale for elementary and junior high school pupils and the trait anger scale for the anger scales. The participants were divided into four groups(listed in order to anger, jealousy high-high, high-low, low-high, low-low)on the basis of their average scores on the enviousness scale and the trait anger scale. The participants were presented with anger and jealousy situations which were made into recorded speech. Then,ventricular rate, anger and jealousy levels, and automatic thoughts among presented situation were measured.
Results showed that the ventricular rate in anger, jealousy situation were higher than the ventricular rate at rest. Moreover the ventricular rate in anger situation tended to be higher than in jealousy situations. Additionally, automatic thoughts at anger and jealousy situation were analyzed by text mining. Many of the automatic thoughts in anger situations were related to other people, and many of the automatic thoughts in jealousy situations were related to oneself, followed by a relation to others as a comparison. From these results, there was a difference between automatic thoughts in anger situation and automatic thoughts in jealousy situations.
