Assignment: Attachment Style and Relationships
Robert Sternberg created his triangular theory of love based on three dimensions: passion, intimacy, and commitment. The degree to which a relationship demonstrates these three dimensions determines the type of love relationship. People begin love relationships with those who care for them as children. These early relationships can have a great effect on their adult relationships.
• Write a 350- to 700-word response summarizing the three dimensions of love and how they interrelate to identify a specific type of love relationship.
• Write a 700- to 1,050-word response explaining how you believe an individual's attachment style can affect the types of love relationships he or she has.
