I’m studying for my Psychology class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
Instructions: Take the following attachment styles questionnaire below.
Attachment styles questionnaire: https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/ECR.php
After you have completed the questionnaire, report your results. Write a few paragraphs (4-5, maximum 1 page single-spaced) on (1) your early childhood experiences that may have resulted in this attachment style; (2) what you think your caregivers’ parenting styles are; and (3) your attachment experiences now (with friends, romantic partners, etc.). Have they remained constant? Have these changed? If so, what may have caused this change?
When answering question 2, please consider the following prompts:
What were your parent(s)/caregiver(s) parenting styles like? Was one parent/caregiver different than the other?
- Authoritative: High warmth, high control
- Authoritarian: Low warmth, high control
- Permissive: High warmth, low control
- Negligent/Uninvolved: Low warmth, low control
What impact do you think it had on your attachment styles? Have these changed? How did you respond to their warmth and control (rebel, angel child, somewhere in between?) What is your relationship like with your parent(s)/caregiver(s) now?
NOTE: Your grade for this assignment depends on the quality of the content (how much effort you put into it). Please also aim to write as clearly as possible.
