Description

We were interested in examining the effects of attachment style in adult friendships on one’s self-esteem. We were also interested in examining the impact of gender. The study consisted of a sample of 70 undergraduate students. Those with a secure attachment style and self-esteem were not significant. Additionally, those with an insecure attachment style and self-esteem were also insignificant. However, results yielded significant findings between those with lower fearful attachment style and higher self-esteem. These findings could provide future research with an emphasis on general relationships and self-esteem in different age groups such as middle and late adulthood.
