Attachment Styles Quiz

Post by carok on Sun May 05, 2013 6:07 pm

This free quiz is about how comfortable you are with intimacy, interdependency, and being vulnerable with a significant other. (Significant other can include a platonic relationship, like a best friend). 60% of the population score as "Secure".

I scored as moderately Dismissive–avoidant and I think it describes me.

On a similar note, this article claims that those who need space and autonomy in a relationship may have a fear of engulfment. They often pair up with types who fear abandonment. These relationships can evolve into something along the lines of love addiction.

Dismissive-Avoidant here.

Not really surprising.

As for the article, no thank you. While I'm dismissive-avoidant I don't partake in ridiculous relationship settings that will obviously do absolutely nothing to enrich my life. Plus, I don't relate to the causes mentioned that'd lead to 'Fear of Engulfment'.

Those type of relationships are for the emotionally unstable/lost - and what's worse, there are by far too many of them.

If the topic interests you however (Fear of Engulfment that is) look up SPD and/or read Fritz Riemann's book 'Anxiety'.

Preoccupied. Basically I attach really easily (if I like you) but I have a deep seated fear of abandonment and rejection.
