This is an online version of the Experiences in Close Relationships Scale, a test of attachment style.

Attachment style is how an individual behaves in relationships with other.

The ECR was created in 1998 by Kelly Brennan, Catherine Clark and Phillip Shaver. It groups people into four different categories on the basis of scores along two scales.

The inventory consists of thirty six that must be rated on how characteristic they are of the subject. The test should not take most people more than four minutes.
