Yerba Buena 7
Participants' attachment style and other personal characteristics were assessed. Participants then rated pictures of people, landscapes, and objects as either safe or threatening. In addition to these ratings, reaction times for each picture were recorded. Results suggest that attachment style influences perception and emotional interpretation of our surroundings.
