Difficult

Attachment and Temperament

APPSY-ROAMK3

Which of the following would provide the best evidence that an infant's temperament affects the attachment bond between infant and parent?

A

Infants who are "difficult" are more likely to be insecurely attached than infants who are "easy."

B

In Harry Harlow's later experiments, baby monkeys who were completely isolated showed the largest developmental delays.

C

After Harry Harlow's early experiments, researchers added a new type of insecure attachment called "disorganized," which correlates strongly with abuse.

D

Caregivers and infants who have "mismatched" temperaments are just as likely to be securely attached as caregivers and infants who "match."

E

Caregivers who do not respond to their infants quickly and instead leave them to "cry it out" are much more likely to have insecurely attached infants.
