I'm Scared, Want to Listen? Fear's Influence on Self-Disclosure

We examine fear’s influence on self-disclosure = a behavior linked to trust. People who experience a frightening event alone are more likely to self-disclose, even when the act is risky, and have greater commitment to being open and honest in future settings. We posit affiliation as the mediator.
