Quiz Outcomes

  • 1.
    Preoccupied
    You have a preoccupied relationship style. Those who are preoccupied are those who generally have high anxiety levels, but are not afraid of avoidance. Amongst all of the attachment styles, those who are preoccupied tend to fall under the category of being "clingy". They can be sociable, but they are not afraid of emotions, even if they include strong ones such as crying. This is because there is an underlying fear that exists of being by themselves. Do not be surprised if they disseminate sensitive information to others. Developing a healthy self-image is vital for better development.
  • 2.
    Secure
    You have a secure attachment style. This is, by far, the most well-adjusted emotionally stable style out of all four. Those who are secure at those who have a comfortable image of themselves, and do not have high levels of anxiety. They have a tremendous internal balance of their emotional attachments to others while ensuring that they are able to take care of themselves. Secure attachment styles are defined by the ability to seek help when they know they need it. It also helps that they can not only solicit help but help back.
  • 3.
    Fearful
    You have a fearful relationship style. People who are fearful tend to believe that they are those that cannot be loved. Therefore, they place great emphasis on utilizing defensive mechanisms to protect themselves from rejection. One of the deeper issues is that when help is offered, they are unwilling to accept it. There is a noticeable lack of social interaction and taking command. They may or may not understand their fearful nature, but what all do not understand is the way they should deal with anxiety. Fearful styles can result in a cycle of security to distrust.
  • 4.
    Dismissal
    You have a dismissal relationship style. People with a dismissal style, while retaining a generally negative view of others, are confident with themselves. A dismissive person generally does not get anxious but rather focuses their energy on avoidance. They will also not like to seek help, even if it is warranted. This desire to not seek help originates from an innate lack of trust in others, and this causes them to be self-reliant, sometimes to a fault. It can be hard to determine the origins of one's dismissive nature, especially if it is congenital. They don't care about a lot.
