Sociology

In Chapter 7, we are told that Social Exchange Theory essentially entails a weighing of the costs and rewards in a given relationship. Rewards are outcomes that we get from a relationship that benefit us in some way, while costs range from granting favors to providing emotional support. When we do not receive the outcomes or rewards that we think we deserve, then we may negatively evaluate the relationship, or at least a given exchange or moment in the relationship, and view ourselves as being under-benefited. In an equitable relationship, costs and rewards are balanced, which usually leads to a positive evaluation of the relationship and satisfaction.

Write about a friendship situation where the balance was uneven.

How did you feel?
What went on in the relationship and were the emotional outcomes?
What did you do in the end or are you still in this friendship?
