Have you ever wondered what your attachment style says about your personality? Your attachment style can provide insight into the types of relationships you’re likely to develop throughout your life.

Disclaimer: Like any “type” or “style,” though, these are meant to be a guide. People are much too complex to always fit neatly into categories. That means it is possible to relate to more than one type or style.
