dc.description.abstractThis study examines the relationship between Parental Attachment and levels of Neuroticism, Psychoticism, and Mindful attention. A random sample of 80 participants aged 18 to 35 years living in Ireland completed a questionnaire which incorporated the Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment (IPPA) questionnaire, the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire Revised (EPQ-R) short version, and the Mindful Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS), including a question on gender. Partly correlational, partly quasi-experimental design was employed. The independent variable was Parental Attachment (with subscales of Mother and Father Attachment) and the dependent variables were Neuroticism, Psychoticism, Mindfulness, also Extraversion. A weak positive correlation was found between Father Attachment and Neuroticism (r=-0.234, p<0.05, 2-tailed), Parental Attachment and Mindful attention (r=0.254, p<0.05, 2-tailed), and also Mother Attachment and Mindful attention (r=0.287, p<0.01, 2-tailed). The study concludes that Parental Attachment does influence personality development and mindful awareness.en
