Abstract/Description: Previous research has found that social exclusion leads people to be wary of others yet motivated to reestablish social connections. However, most research has focused on how social exclusion affects responses to strangers. The current studies tested the hypothesis that exclusion would lead people to turn to and invest in their friends and family. This hypothesis was not supported. Excluded participants did not differ from non-excluded participants in terms of their desire to spend time with friends and family rather than strangers (Study 1), their desire to pursue pro-relationship goals (Study 1), and their generosity toward their friends vs. strangers (Study 2).
