The purpose of this study is to examine the correlation between self esteem (high or low) and acts of infidelity (emotional or physical). The hypothesis is that individuals who are either high or low in self-esteem will be more likely to say that they would commit acts of infidelity. Participants will be administered the Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale (Rosenberg, 1989) as well as The Infidelity Scale (Drigotas, S., Safstrom, C., & Gentilia, T., 1999)
