The most complete study: - studied 23 year olds that had been intensively studied as grade schoolers and high schoolers (and 1 year olds!). The assessments they undertook are listed above. Multiple time points they analyzed, multiple sources of information. Infant attachment to relationship stability is only 0.2! It seems that this is probably the best estimate of the direct correlation between these two. There is a double mediated relationship. those securely attached as infants in early grade school years they do much better in their social relationships (teachers note this, kids vote them); direct link here. Also a link from grade school to best friends at 16. then a strong link from 16 year old relationship to 23 year old. Simpson would conclude that our experiences are tied to our early childhood.

17 Results: his study suggests that the strongest links are closest in time (infancy to grade school, etc). It is possible that things can change among any of these steps. Therefore there is some evidence of a lingering effect but the direct effect is modest but you can construct a mediating pathway. Diversity of sources of data Thursday, February 10, 2011

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
