Attachment Theory and Relationships: What’s Your Style?

Attachment theory can help you figure out your relationships. For this quiz we’re utilizing the work Mary Ainsworth has done in the field of attachment research. She’s the one who identified the four classifications we’re using: securely attached, anxious-preoccupied, dismissive-avoidant, and fearful-avoidant. These all give you insight into how you are in relationships, and how your attachment style impacts other people.

We’ve also published an article outlining how attachment theory relates to relationships. Due to the overwhelming positive response, it was clear that you wanted a way to figure out your own attachment style… And here it is! Answer whether you agree or disagree with each phrase, and we’ll be able to tell how you like to attach.

  1. Interesting quiz.

    Could use little more questions to selectively quantify more accurate information.

  2. Agree with Jeff: could have used more questions. Results were inaccurate.

  3. To be honest, I’m knowledgeable on Attachment-style theory and feel this quiz doesn’t necessarily deliver on the depth of the assessment that is crucial when trying to determine someone’s general approach into forming relationships with others. There’s simply not enough questions that help create the entire process of assessment feel more precise or accurate. Attachment styles are a dimension, and knowing that there’s a spectrum we have to mimic in other to make our quizzes more reliable sources of information, even if they may be just for fun, we have to be careful to pay attention in asking all sorts of questions relating to the topic, not only the ones that help us categorize individuals. I do like the idea though; the results can sometimes be eye-opening for a lot of people, and in my own experience, I found that it’s helped me notice and mend my faults faster than anything else.
