We examined the effect of the factors of hesitancy toward and the motivation for self-disclosure on loneliness using the postulated model: hesitancy toward and motivation for self-disclosure → self-disclosure→ loneliness. Five scales about self-disclosure and loneliness were administered to 235 junior high school students. Findings suggest that release of one’s feelings strongly promotes self-disclosure and anxiety about the target causes hesitancy toward engaging in self-disclosure; hesitancy toward personal or private self-disclosure also has an effect on loneliness.
