In a new study published in the journal Personal Relationships , Alaei and Department of Psychology professors, Geoff Macdonald and Nicholas Rule, found that people's individual attachment styles correspond with the lyrics of their favorite songs.

4 Main Attachment Styles

  • Anxiously attached people worry about being rejected and seek a lot of reassurance about their relationships.
  • Avoidant attached people respond to their negative expectations of relationships by closing off emotions and intimacy in favor of independence.
  • People with a mixed attachment style have confused expectations, fluctuating between clingy and cold.
  • Secure people have optimistic outlooks on relationships, and are open communicators and trust their partners.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
