Running head: ATTACHMENT STYLE Attachment Style According to Ainsworth Attachment Style According to Ainsworth Discovering one’s attachment style can prove to be both enriching and interesting.

Through the carefully created questionnaire I was able to discover my infant attachment style; a securely attached, type B infant. I found that the behaviors I had as a child were supported by past research, in specific research conducted by Mary Ainsworth. Ainsworth asserted that there were three types of attachment styles during child development. They consisted of the securely attached baby (type B), the insecure/anxious-avoidant baby (type A), and the insecure/anxious-resistant baby (type C) (Santrock, 1999). These three attachment styles can be easily discovered through observations of the child’s behavior and/or a series of simple questions.

This differs from type A and C babies who do not even pay attention to the mother (type A) or infants who cling to the mother constantly (type C). If however, she was not within my visual field I came back looking for her.
