Anapol on Jealousy

March 15, 2012

Excerpted from Polyamory in the 21st Century: Love and Intimacy with Multiple Partners by Deborah Anapol:

Most researchers agree that on a cognitive-behavioral level, sexual jealousy is a reaction to a partner’s real or imagined experience with a third party and that jealousy is most likely to occur in a person who is both dependent and insecure.  My own clinical observation based on working with thousands of people working with jealousy is that jealousy most often arises when a person’s need for control is threatened.  This may or may not coincide with dependency and low self-esteem.
