Abstract

The following work presents the views of various authors on sexual jealousy from the point of view of social psychology. Sexual jealousy is seen as an averse emotional reaction, its complexity is often stressed by a number of authors. So is our subjectivity of opinion when being gripped by it.
This work includes views on the origins of sexual jealousy, both from the cultural as well as biological point of view. The historical and cultural background show us how our sexual jealousy evolved over time. We also see its behaviourial patterns across various societies. The author stresses the fact that - depending on what culture we belong to - different situations can become the source of sexual jealousy. Yet we can also say that at the very heart of jealousy there lies the feeling of insecurity.
This work includes different ways of reacting to sexual jealousy as well as examples of how to deal with this feeling. The observations stress the link between certain elements of our personal characteristics and the appearance of sexual jealousy. Yet we must remember at the same time that sexual jealousy cannot be viewed as a internal element of our character.
