Who Are You? Identity Development

Among the different perspectives on development is Erik Erikson’s theory, which we will refer to

throughout the course. This theory examines development during every stage of the human lifespan and

focuses on a central issue or conflict that should be resolved at each stage. In this assignment, you will

be asked to consider development during adolescence and its impact on adult development.

Review Erikson’s stage of identity versus identity confusion in your readings for the module. Respond to

the following:

Is identity development ever complete? Why or why not?

What are the signs that someone has reached identity achievement?

In your own life, what are some of the challenges you have faced in trying to establish your own

identity?

Support your arguments with research, citing sources.

Write your initial response in 150–200 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. By Saturday,

Who Are You? Identity Development

Is identity development ever complete? Why or why not?

Identity development of a person is never complete because throughout life a person tries to find

the answers to the two questions central to development of identity- “Who am I” and “What am I

to do in life” (Baker, n.d.). A person continues to search his or her identity through religious

beliefs, occupational goals and ethnic background and therefore the process of identity

development is not fully resolved in the adolescent period, but continues throughout life.

What are the signs that someone has reached identity achievement?
