dc.description.abstractThis study was conducted to assess the possible correlation between personality type, attachment style and relationship satisfaction in a sample of (N=103) participants, (N=33) men and (N=70) women all part-time students at DBS. The participants were asked demographic questions age, gender and relationship status. The Relationship Questionnaire (Bartholomew & Horowitz, 1991) was used to evaluate attachment styles, personality type was examined using the Big Five Inventory (John & Srivastava, 1999), and (Hendrick, Dicke, & Hendrick, 1988) Relationship Assessment Scale was administered to measure romantic relationship satisfaction. A Spearman's rho revealed high romantic relationship satisfaction is significantly correlated with secure attachment (rs(99) = 0.25, p<0.01) and conscientiousness (rs(98) = 0.19, p<0.05). An ANOVA indicated that married individuals have significantly higher relationship satisfaction than non-cohabiting persons (M=3.39, SD=1.02, p=0.018). An independent samples t-test revealed no gender differences in relationship satisfaction. Author keywords: relationship satisfaction, attachment, personalityen
