Özet

This study investigated the relationship between college students' attachment styles and their gender, personal meaning, depressiveness and state anxiety. One hundred fifty five voluntary college students participated to the study. Simultaneous multiple regression analysis, multinomial and binary logistic regression analyses and independent t-test were used for data analyses. A significant relationship was observed between attachment and depressiveness. There was no significant relationship between attachment and trait-anxiety. Males and females differed only on attachment-related avoidance, dependency factor of depressiveness and trait-anxiety. Gender partially predicted college students' attachment styles. Implications of the results, limitations of the study and directions for future research were discussed.
