Introduction: The created attachment style between mother and her child will play an important role in the childchr('39')s cognitive, social and behavioral performance in the future. Therefore this study was conducted to find any existing relationship between attachment styles and intensity of sensation seeking in female high school students in Isfahan-Iran.

The applied instruments in this study were Zakermanchr('39')s fifth form of Sensation seeking scale (40 items) and the adultchr('39')s attachment style questionnaire. The achieved data were analyzed through MANOVA using SPSS Statistics 21. Results: The results of the study showed that there is a significant difference between two high and low sensation seeking groups (p<0.05).The results of mono-variable tests proved the observed difference in MANOVA implies that there is a significant difference between the groups of high and low emotion seekers in safe attachment style scores while there was not a significant relationship between two other groups of attachment styles( anxious-avoidant and anxious-resistant) and intensity of sensation seeking (p>0.05). Conclusion: Sensations and emotions, as one of the important components in social interactions, can be influenced by attachment styles especially safe attachment from very early stages of life.
