How to determine what your attachment style is

If you’ve ever wondered what your attachment style is, good news! You can find out by taking this test. But before we talk about How to determine what your attachment style is: Subscribe below!


You’re probably secure.

Securely attached people are comfortable with intimacy and independence, which means they can tolerate separation from their loved ones without feeling anxious or angry. They also have the ability to form close relationships, and they trust others because they know that their partner will be there for them when needed.

Avoidant attachment is a style of attachment in which a person feels distant from others, and does not allow him or herself to get close to others.

A person with an avoidant attachment will find it hard to trust other people and will often feel like they cannot rely on anyone else for support. They may also be wary of getting close because they are afraid that if they do, the other person will leave them or hurt them in some way.


The attachment style you have is a product of your childhood relationships. You might have been raised by parents who were emotionally unavailable, or maybe you were parented by someone with an anxious attachment style who was always hovering and worrying about their child’s safety. These experiences shape our beliefs about what kind of relationships we can expect in the future, which is why it’s so important to understand how they work before entering into one yourself.

Ambivalence is a special kind of mixed bag: it means that sometimes your feelings are positive toward someone else but other times they’re negative (or neutral). For example, if your partner does something nice for you like buying flowers or cooking dinner for the first time ever–and then later that same week they don’t call when they said they would–you’d be ambivalent toward them because sometimes those actions make up part of who they are while other times those actions don’t matter at all! This can make things difficult when figuring out where exactly things stand between two people who feel this way together.”


If you think the idea of an “avoidant” attachment style sounds like something out of a sci-fi novel, well…you’re right. In fact, avoidants are so detached from other people that they can barely even recognize their own feelings. They almost never feel secure in relationships and are terrified of being abandoned or rejected by those they love. A fear which often drives them away from intimacy altogether.

Disorganized attachment styles include both avoidant and ambivalent types (we’ll get back to this later). People with disorganized styles tend not only to avoid closeness but also have difficulty dealing with people who are close to them–and they often have histories of abuse as children.

Knowing your attachment style can help you understand your relationships.

Knowing your attachment style can be helpful in understanding your relationships. If you have an avoidant attachment style, it’s likely that you are more comfortable being independent and less dependent on others. You might use this independence to avoid the pain of rejection by keeping yourself emotionally distant from others. If you have an anxious attachment style, it’s likely that you crave a sense of security in your relationships with others and feel uncomfortable when they aren’t there for you. This need for closeness may also lead to clinginess or jealousy if someone pulls away from them too much (which can happen whether due to natural separation or other factors such as illness).

Anxious people tend to want affection from their partner but might not know how exactly to ask for it- or even if they should ask! They may worry about how much time apart each person needs before returning home after work every day; even though both people agreed beforehand on separate schedules throughout their relationship so far without any problems arising between them yet again today either…


If you’re still unsure of your attachment style, many online quizzes can help you determine which category most closely matches your personality. The important thing to remember is that we all fall somewhere on this spectrum and none of us have a perfect attachment style. Even if you think that one type fits perfectly, it’s likely there will be some aspects from another category that apply as well!
