Identity Development


One of the most important parts of adolescence is identity development.  James Marcia proposed that depending on their commitment levels and experience with a crisis or active exploration adolescents fall into one of 4 identity statuses: identity-achieved, moratorium, foreclosed, and identity diffused. 

Reflect on your own adolescence.  In which of these stages would you have considered yourself? 

In a 1-2 page paper, summarize these 4 identity statuses.  Then discuss your own identity status that you experienced as an adolescent.  What factors led to your identity status?  Do you believe that your identity status has changed or remained stable?  Explain. Cite all work and make sure you have a reference page.
