Appendix F: Reasons for Social Comparisons

According to Chien- Huang & Chia-Ching (2007) social comparisions are more likely to occur as age increases. Chien- Huang & Chia-Ching (2007) also hypothesised reasons that will lead people to engage in social comparisions including:
1: Conditions of ability
2: Uncertainty
3: Frustration
4: Self-relevant domains
