- Anxious attachment style - "perceive others as unresponsive or inconsistent, worry about being rejected, and show heightened vigilance to signs of support or hostility"
- Avoidant attachment style - "prefer being distant and detached from others, report no need for close relationships, and tend to distrust affective signals from others"
- Secure attachment style - "report positive and trustful interactions with others"
Interestingly, the paper did not touch on any gender differences (with all 16 of its subjects). I would like to know if, even within the same attachment category, there were any inconsistencies between men and women, or if ultimately the style trumped sex.
