On 26 October 2021. When are deficits in attention vs compulsivity associated with DMM-attachment A-strategies? Does the split align with the A-odd vs A-even split in strategies?
In the https://www.conflictscienceinstitute.com/the-definition-and-relevance-of-attachment-for-lawyers-from-a-dmm-perspective/Dynamic Maturational Model of Attachment and Adaptation (DMM), A-strategies are associated with both hypervigilance and compulsive behavior, and with a lack of memory and a blocking out or dismissal particularly of negative information. Do we have evidence that A-strategies are associated with attention deficits, and has that been your experience in practice? When will an A-strategy be associated with hypervigilance and compulsivity vs attention deficits (and can an A-strategy be associated with both within the same individual?) Might the split align with odd versus even A-strategies, and if not, what else may predict “which way” an A-strategy-user will go? Under what circumstances would attention and compulsivity vs a lack of attention be more functional/advantageous for the individual?
