Power of Love and Relationships

For this assignment, please address each of the items below:

1. Describe the factors of attraction. What attracts us to one another? Why are we less likely to befriend someone from another culture than someone from a similar background with a similar physical aesthetic? Be sure to identify and describe all six factors in attraction.

2. Discuss the human need to build bonds and relationships. Do we have an innate need to belong? If so, why? How is this need attached to our emotions, our social bonds, and our fear of deprivation? 

3. Explain the three types of love: companionate, passionate, and compassionate.  What are the differences and similarities among them? What is an example of each type? How does Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love distinguish romantic love, from empty love or infatuation? Please thoroughly address each of the components in Figure 12.1. 

Include an introduction, thesis statement, and conclusion. Your completed assignment must be three to four pages in length (excluding title and reference pages).  It must include a minimum of two to three references, formatted according to APA guidelines, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center

Figure12.1: Sternberg’s triangular theory of love

Illustration showing the types of love according to Sternberg's theory. The illustration is made up of one pink triangle. The only label contained within the triangle is "consummate love (intimacy plus passion plus commitment)". The rest of the labels are on the outside of the triangle. The top point is labeled "liking (intimacy alone)." The bottom left point is labeled "infatuation (passion alone)." The left side of the triangle between these points is labeled "romantic love (intimacy plus passion)." The bottom right point is labeled "empty love (commitment alone)." The bottom side of the triangle (between the bottom left and bottom right points) is labeled "fatuous love (passion plus commitment)." The right side of the triangle (between the top point and bottom right point) is labeled "companionate love (intimacy plus commitment)."
