Penelitian korelasional ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui apakah neuroticism dapat memoderasi hubungan antara komitmen dan motif berkorban. Alat ukur yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini adalah Motives of Sacrifice (Impett, Gable, & Peplau, 2005) untuk mengukur motif berkorban, The Investment Model (Rusbult, Martz, & Agnew, 1998) untuk mengukur komitmen, dan Big Five Inventory (BFI) (Ramdhani, 2012) untuk mengukur neuroticism. Data yang didapat ialah 954 individu, dengan 80,9% responden perempuan, yang sedang menjalani hubungan berpacaran, ditemukan bahwa terdapat hubungan yang signifikan antara motif berkorban baik approach motives (r = 0,26, p = 0,00; p < 0,01, two tails) maupun avoidance motives (r = 0,09, p = 0,00; p < 0,01, two tails) dengan komitmen. Individu yang memiliki komitmen tinggi cenderung berkorban demi pasangannya, baik dengan approach motives maupun avoidance motives. Akan tetapi, ditemukan bahwa neuroticism tidak memoderasi hubungan antara motif berkorban, baik approach motives (t = 0,90, p = 0,27; p > 0,05) maupun avoidance motives (t = 0,51, p = 0,61; p > 0,05) dengan komitmen.
