Transcript of Psychology Hazan & Shaver presentation

The love quiz Hazan & Shaver To examine if there was a correlation between the infant’s attachment type and their future approach to romantic relationships as Bowlby’s theory had suggested. AIM They printed a “love quiz” in a local newspaper and analysed 620 responses from people aged between 14 and 82 years.

The “Love Quiz” consisted of 2 components:
A measure of attachment type: to determine their early relationships with parents
A love experience questionnaire which assessed individual’s beliefs about romantic love

They classified the respondents’ according to Mary Ainsworth’sinfant attachment types looked for corresponding adult love styles Procedure Hazan & Shaver found a strikingly high correlation between the infant attachment types and the adult romantic love styles: Results Questionnaires were designed carefully
Judith Feeney & Patricia Noller (1990) found that securely-attached individuals had the most long-term enduring romantic relationships Strengths Hazan & Shaver concluded that there was evidence to support the concept of the inner working model having a life-long effect.
This supports Bowlby’s theory as it shows that early attachments do act as a template for the future. Conclusions Other factors could be involved. Kagan (1984) suggested the temperament hypothesis.
Results may not be reliable as people’s recollections of the past may be inaccurate. (retrospective)
The data is correlational, we cannot prove they are related.
Respondents were self-reporting, so they might not give truthful answers. Weaknesses Thank you for listening BY: Tomoko, Arunima and Rachel
