Abstract:Naturalistic social comparisons are comparisons that happen in everyday life, unlike many social comparisons that occur only in psychological laboratories. Previous research showing strong relationships between social comparisons and satisfaction judgments needs to be reinterpreted because the correlation is caused by a third variable, self standing judgments. Study 1 used a correlational design and path analysis. Study 2 used randomly assigned roommates as comparison targets. Neither study showed any effect of naturalistic social comparisons on satisfaction judgments.
