Abstract: The chief aim of this study was to develop a questionnaire to assess the level of touch avoidance (TA), i.e., attitudes towards physical touch in relation to others. Material, methods. In order to validate the Touch Avoidance Questionnaire, an attachment style questionnaire was distributed to 293 Swedish university students. Reliability and validity tests of the TAQ were assessed. Statistical analyses of TAQ yielded sound psychometric properties. The results showed that the TAQ contains five factors. Results relating to attachment style were similar to previous research; ‘secure’ and ‘preoccupied’ attachment styles do not correlate with touch avoidance, while ‘fearful’ and ‘dismissing’ showed interesting relations. Males showed more TA than females in relation to partner, family, and friends of the same sex.
Tyrimo tikslas. Pagrindinis šio tyrimo tikslas – sukurti klausimyną, skirtą prisilietimo vengimo lygiui, t. y. nuostatoms į fizinį kito žmogaus prisilietimą, tirti, bei įvertinti šio klausimyno patikimumą ir validumą. Metodai. Apklausti 293 Švedijos universitetų studentai naudojant Prisilietimo vengimo klausimyną (Touch Avoidance Questionnaire, TAQ) ir Prieraišumo stiliaus klausimyną (Attachment Style Questionnaire). Rezultatai, išvados. Statistinė rezultatų analizė parodė, kad Prisilie timo vengimo klausimynas pasižymi tinkamomis psichometrinėmis charakteristikomis. Faktorių analizė išskyrė penkis klausimyną sudarančius faktorius. Analizuojant prieraišumo stiliaus ir prisilietimo vengimo sąsajas, gauti ankstesnius tyrimus patvirtinantys rezultatai: saugus ir nerimastingas prieraišumo stilius nekoreliavo su prisilietimo vengimu; o vengiantis ir baimingas vengiantis prieraišumo stilius su prisilietimo vengimu buvo susijęs. Vyrai labiau vengia prisilietimo nei moterys partnerystės, šeimos ir tos pačios lyties draugų srityse.
