Attachment Quiz

What’s Your Attachment Style?

Do you want more out of your relationship? As you grow and change, your relationship will naturally grow with you. Challenges can arise, however, when you struggle to recognize your attachment style and how you and your partner each behave in your relationship. Your attachment style is informed by a variety of factors, including the relationships you held growing up, and understanding how you connect with your partner can help you strengthen the bond you share.

Withdrawers tend to have more of an avoidant attachment. You may avoid conflict, difficult conversations and struggle to share your thoughts and emotions with your spouse or partner. Pursuers tend to have more of an anxious attachment. You may feel distant or shut out and prefer to resolve issues immediately. Those who are more secure in their attachment are able to feel more confident in their relationship to more openly give and receive comfort and care.

The following Attachment Style Quiz is not meant to define you or your relationship, but it can help you assess your attachment style and determine if you or your relationship could heal or grow through professional guidance and support.
