520    Using literature from three psychological foundations: 
       attachment theory, college student development theory, and
       goal development theory, as the guiding premise, this 
       study examined the influence of human attachment styles on
       the development of life aspirations. Based on the 
       fundamental nature of the effects of attachment style on 
       the development of identity, and the "crisis" of identity 
       development which occurs during the college years, it is 
       suggested that nurturing secure attachments in college 
       students may impact the development of intrinsically 
       motivated life goals. Respondents in this survey 
       identified a distinct attachment category to which they 
       associated and responded to questions related to the 
       importance, likelihood, and current levels of attachment 
       related to life aspirations. Findings from this baseline 
       study suggest that there may be a predictive value of 
       attachment style on the development of life goals, 
       particularly as they relate to college students with 
       preoccupied and dismissing attachment styles and the 
       development of extrinsic aspirations. Discussion related 
       to these findings, as well as implications for higher 
       education, are included in this paper
