Abstract

People with high perceived support consistently have lower negative affect than people who doubt their networks supportiveness. Most theories hypothesize that perceived support is linked to low negative affect because people with high perceived support receive high levels of enacted support (e.g., advice or reassurance). Yet paradoxically, in many studies, the people who receive the most enacted support report the most negative affect (Lakey & Orehek, 2011). Moreover, enacted support and perceived support are typically not as highly correlated as social support theory suggests.
