Finally, in any further investigation with the ARQ-II, it may be beneficial to utilize a more ethnically diverse sample, with a goal of bolstering generalizability of any findings. Phase 2 was disappointing. However, the strength of the relationships was generally small and demonstrated little practical utility. Such results are congruent with existing concerns regarding the weak relation between paper and pencil measures of attachment and the AAI assessment Roisman et al.
We proposed reformulating the ARQ into a multiple item scale with Likert-type responses as a strategy that may increase its validity and usefulness. Phase 1 results were more encouraging. This result is foundational to the validity of the DMM-AAI and replicates findings from a large Italian study Landini et al, and a smaller more recent investigation Crittenden et al.
Additionally, further research is encouraged in order to independently appraise the role of preference for cognitive or affective information and degree of transformaion in information processing in psychopathology. Finally, if possible, investigation with more diverse samples, and the development of norms for the DMM-AAI may be benficial.
