Measuring adult attachment: A construct validation of two self report instruments

Bäckström, Martin LU and Holmes, Bjarne M (2001) In Scandinavian Journal of Psychology 42(1). p.79-86
Abstract
This study reports the Swedish construct validation of two translated attachment style scales. The factor structure of the attachment construct was investigated via exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses of attachment scores from 515 students of a Swedish university. Results supported the expected two-factor solution, but found a three-factor solution to be a viable alternative. In addition, the attachment scales were compared with the Big Five personality inventory (NEO-PI), using a sample of 87 Swedish students, and found to have expected correlation to this scale.
