The aim of this research is to analyse the trait anxiety and locus of control of undergraduates in terms of their attachment styles. This research has been conducted in accordance with general screening model. The target population of the research is constituted of 480 undergraduates. Pearson moments multiplication correlation coefficient technique, analysis of variance and Tukey test have been employed for analysing the data. As a result of the research, it has been found out that trait anxiety and the locus of control of negative self model and negative others model are positively correlated. Another symptom of the research is the finding that the trait anxiety point averages of the individuals of preoccupied and fearful attachment is higher than those of secure attachment style. Also, the point averages of trait anxiety of fearful attachment individuals have been determined to be expressively higher than the individuals who are dismissing attachment. It has been found out that the locus of control point averages of secure attachment undergraduates is expressively lower than those of preoccupied and fearful attachment undergraduates.
