Individuals' Self-Defining Memories as Reflecting Their Strength and Weaknesses
Goldner, Limor; Scharf, Miri
Journal of Psychologists and Counsellors in Schools, v27 n2 p153-167 Dec 2017
The associations between attachment orientations, temperament, resilience, and various dimensions of self-defining memories were examined in 83 female Israeli adolescents and young adults. Resiliency and positive temperament were associated with positive qualities of memories, whereas negative emotionality and reactivity were associated with poor recollection quality. Lower levels of fearful attachment orientation were associated with interpersonal memories and mixed emotions in memories, and a profound-distrust attachment orientation was associated with life-threatening memories. The study highlights the contribution of these qualities to recollections and underscores the contribution to theory and practical implications.
