  • Indiscriminate attachments:
  • Specific Attachments
  • Babies produce similar responses to objects and people Generally do not prefer specific people to others They rapidly learn to discriminate familiar people from unfamiliar people
  • Babies become more social able and can tell people apart They show a preference for people rather than inanimate objects Generally do not show fear of strangers or separation anxiety They are relatively comforted by anyone and do not show a strong preference for specific people yet, their attachment behaviour is said to be indiscriminate because it is not significantly different for any one person
  • Two changes happen around 7 months of age The babies show separation anxiety and stranger anxiety. Formed a specific and Primary attachment to one particular individual (the person who shows most sensitivity to their signals). Use familiar adults as secure base
