4 Main Attachment Styles

  • Anxiously attached people worry about being rejected and seek a lot of reassurance about their relationships.
  • Avoidant attached people respond to their negative expectations of relationships by closing off emotions and intimacy in favor of independence.
  • People with a mixed attachment style have confused expectations, fluctuating between clingy and cold.
  • Secure people have optimistic outlooks on relationships, and are open communicators and trust their partners.
