Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med studien var att undersöka samband mellan interpersonella anknytningsmönster och högkänslighet. Hypotesen var att Ängslig-ambivalent anknutna individer skulle uppvisa en högre grad av högkänslighet, än de individer som var tryggt anknutna. Studien utfördes på 120 studenter vid Lunds Universitet genom två självskattningsformulär: Highly Sensitive Person Scale (HSPS) och Attachment Style Questionnaire (ASQ). Analysen utfördes med en oberoende envägs ANOVA följt av post-hoc tester där de olika anknytningsstilarna analyserades som grupper för ett se om dessa skiljde sig signifikant gällande högkänslighet. En signifikant skillnad (p =.0001) erhölls mellan den Trygga och Ängslig-ambivalenta gruppen avseende högkänslighetspoäng.... (More)

En signifikant skillnad (p =.0001) erhölls mellan den Trygga och Ängslig-ambivalenta gruppen avseende högkänslighetspoäng. Resultatet antyder att det kan finnas ett samband mellan högkänslighet och Ängslig-ambivalent anknytning även om några säkra slutsatser inte kan dras då studien har sina metodologiska begränsningar. Vidare forskning behöver bedrivas för att undersöka den här relationen. (Less)
Abstract
The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship between interpersonal attachment in adults and Sensory Processing Sensitivity, SPS. It was hypothesized that individuals with an Anxious-ambivalent attachment would exhibit a higher degree of SPS than individuals with Secure attachment. The study was conducted by recruiting 120 students from Lund University to fill out two self-report-questionnaires: the Highly Sensitive Person Scale (HSPS) and the Attachment Style Questionnaire (ASQ). An independent Oneway ANOVA followed by post-hoc-tests was used to analyze the different attachment groups on their sensitivity score. The difference between the Secure and Anxious-ambivalent groups in SPS turned out to be significant (p = .0001). The... (More)

The difference between the Secure and Anxious-ambivalent groups in SPS turned out to be significant (p = .0001). The result suggests that there could be a relationship between SPS and Anxious-ambivalent attachment, but no definite conclusions can be drawn from the result since the study has its methodological limitations. The question of adequacy is one for further research. (Less)
