Prototypes/attachment theory/Fraley/Shaver/Mikulincer: Fraley (2002)(1) constructed a dynamic mathematical model assuming that a stable prototype of infant attachment is carried through time, but with prototype-discrepant events and relationships tempering the prototype’s influence over time, and tested its goodness-of-fit with longitudinal data. He compared this model with the alternative ‘revisionist’ (continuous change) model, which did not assume the existence of an initial prototype that had a lasting influence. Fraley (2002(1), p. 135) concluded that ‘the prototype model provided the best fit to the data, indicating that a prototype-like process may contribute to attachment stability across the life course
