Mary Ainsworth was born in Ohio in 1913, and her love and interest of psychology began at age 15, after reading 'Character and the Conduct of Life' by William McDougall. She spent much of her career studying the relationship between mothers and infants. She developed the "Strange Situation Assessment," which is used to describe how an infant reacts when his or her mother leaves the room for a short amount of time. She developed the three types of attachment: secure, anxious-avoidant and anxious-resistant. She made many further discoveries relating to child development.
