The feelings that are evoked when a person is scolded, such as humiliation, shame, and guilt, related to the characteristics of the scolder were investigated. The results indicated that scolding by a person who was disliked evoked a sense of humiliation. A feeling of shame was evoked by a scolder who the person did not want to offend. Guilt was evoked by a scolder who the person wanted to be liked by. The results of structural equation modeling indicated that variables related to the scolder did not directly affect the mending of the relationship, but the sense of guilt and humiliation mediated the mending process. Guilt promoted the mending process, while humiliation suppressed the process.
