Summary
The role of emotionally intimate relationships in adulthood as a buffer against a variety of adverse clinical outcomes has been well documented. Recently, the Fear of Intimacy Scale (FIS; Descutner & Thelen, 1991) was developed, and has been shown to be a reliable and valid index of the factors related to the establishment and maintenance of emotionally intimate relationships. Concurrent with the development of the FIS have been substantial advances in instrumentation designed to operationalize adult attachment theory and the Five-Factor Model of Personality (FFM), advances that have clearly established the utility of these two approaches in evaluating adult interpersonal functioning. Although the FIS was developed to operationalize the more specific fear-of-intimacy construct, there have been few attempts to integrate research involving the FIS with broader research involving adult attachment theory and the FFM. The current study examined the relation between the FIS, adult attachment models, and the FFM, and tested the incremental validity of the FIS over and above these models in predicting close relationship quality and interpersonal problems. The FIS was found to be highly related to the subscales of the NEO-Personality Inventory - Revised as well as to adult attachment constructs such as avoidance of intimacy and anxiety about abandonment and rejection. The FIS was also strongly related to the subscales of the Inventory of Interpersonal Problems and to a measure of relationship quality. The relation of the FIS to these interpersonal outcomes was not significantly diminished after controlling for personality variables (FFM) or adult attachment variables
