Attachment anxiety heightens aversion toward pattern deviancy, according to new psychology research

first_imgShare on Facebook Email Anxieties about one’s close relationships are associated with aversion towards pattern deviancy, according to new research published in the European Journal of Social Psychology.“I’ve always been fascinated with objects, experiences, and situations that are irregular, abnormal, and break the pattern of what we are used to. I’ve consistently found that people tend to feel negatively about such ‘deviant’ stimuli. The obvious next question was to ask where these negative attitudes towards deviancy come from,” explained study author Anton Gollwitzer, a PhD Candidate at Yale University.Two initial surveys of 239 participants found a link between attachment anxiety and aversion toward pattern deviancy. People who agreed with statements such as “My desire to be very close sometimes scares people away” and “I often worry that my partner doesn’t really love me” tended to also say that broken patterns of geometric shapes made them feel uncomfortable, anxious, or annoyed.

Instead of being asked to evaluate patterns of geometric shapes, the participants were simply asked how they felt “about things that break a pattern, are out of line, and are disordered.”“Anxiety in terms of our social relationships can have a far-reaching impact on our lives, including nonsocial outcomes. Although we tend to think of our social and nonsocial attitudes as independent, our social experiences can actually alter the way we more generally approach objects, experiences, and situations,” Gollwitzer told PsyPost.Future research could address why the association between attachment anxiety and aversion toward pattern deviancy exists.“Is the link between anxious attachment and disliking broken patterns functional in some way? For instance, do unstable social relationships serve as a signal for dangerous irregularities in the environment? If true, then anxious attachment may heighten people’s dislike of broken patterns to help them avoid these harmful irregularities,” Gollwitzer said.The study, “Anxious Attachment as an Antecedent of People’s Aversion Towards Pattern Deviancy“, was authored by Anton Gollwitzer and Margaret S. Clark. Sharelast_img read more

Klopp one of player’s ‘greatest admirers’, agent ‘ready to deal’ with…

first_imgThe 27 year old has spent his entire career at Napoli, apart from three loans, and shown his commitment to the club.With some questioning that commitment, he said at the weekend that he’ll give his all for the club whilst he’s there, which gives a tiny bit of doubt.Several clubs have been dragged in as potential destinations, and Liverpool is one. With Mino Raiola being the player’s agent, the situation could easily take a more serious turn.Journalist Mimmo Malfitano spoke to RMC on Monday (via TMW) and said: “All this makes one think, because when a footballer says he will give 100% while he remains, he suggests that he may be ​​taking into consideration the idea of some offers that Raiola could already have in his hands. Insigne is interesting Manchester United, PSG and Liverpool, but this is nothing new. “Klopp is one of the greatest admirers of Insigne, but there is always one. Lorenzo is tied to Napoli for another three years, De Laurentiis (Napoli president) can hardly have the intention to sell him. Obviously if the boy – through the agent – were to show the desire to go elsewhere, the club could consider dealing for him with some clubs.”The same journalist has an article in Tuesday’s Gazzetta dello Sport on Insigne, and Liverpool and the other clubs again get a mention.It’s stated that in Naples there’s a belief Raiola is ‘ready to deal’ with Liverpool and the others for Insigne.Rumour of a €100m offer from Manchester is also mentioned, but Malfitano then suggests it could all be ‘fantasy’, because of the difficulty of dealing with Napoli.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
