Emotional responses to stress were examined as a function of social support and anger-control in this study. Participants (N = 61) were randomly assigned to either active support, passive support, or alone condition. As hypothesized, relative to higher anger-control participants, those with lower anger-control reported less positive affect (PA) when no social support was provided, but same level of PA when they were actively supported. However, contrary to the hypothesis, no significant differences were found between the high and low anger-controls in the passive support condition. The findings were discussed in terms of interpretation of passive support and social desirability.
