Attachment Style Test
Romance and Attachment Quiz | Psych Central
Attachment refers the particular way in which you relate to other people. Your style of attachment was formed at the very beginning of your life, during your first two years. Once established, it is a style that stays with you and plays out today in how you relate in intimate relationships and in how you parent your children. Understanding your style of attachment is helpful because it offers you insight into how you felt and developed in your childhood. It also clarifies ways that you are emotionally limited as an adult and what you need to change to improve your close relationships and your relationship with your own children. Young children need to develop a relationship with at least one primary caregiver in order for their social and emotional development to occur normally. Without this attachment, they will suffer serious psychological and social impairment.
Attachment Styles Test
This free online attachment style test is delivered to you free of charge and will allow you to obtain your coordinates on two major dimensions of attachment style theory, thus relegating you to one of the four major quadrants that are commonly used in the classification of attachment styles. While there are other attachment style tests out there, many of them come with normative baggage and subjective value judgments that construe some attachment styles as better than others. While no completely objective or value-free attachment style test has ever been devised, this test attempts to operationalize all of the possible attachment styles as sensible, rational, and value-neutral adaptations that the respondent has formed to conditions that were present when they were growing up. Extensively researched.
When completing this questionnaire, please focus on one significant relationship — ideally a current or past partner as the focus here is on adult relationships. This does not necessarily need to be a romantic relationship but must be the individual with whom you feel the most connection. This questionnaire is designed to be an interactive learning tool. When responding, consider how strongly you identify with each statement — disagree, mostly agree, strongly agree.
