What is identity erikson

What is Identity: Erikson

  • Conscious sense of individual uniqueness

  • Striving for continuity of experience

  • Solidarity from group ideals

  • The Charge: such definitions are vague, unsystematic, too colloquial.


Marcia 1966 identity commitments

Marcia (1966) Identity Commitments

  • Identity is construed as committing to a particular vocation, sexuality, religion, political ideology, etc…

  • There is a progression of commitment “types” and “trying on” of commitments


The identity process

The Identity Process

  • Adolescence

    • Identity-diffused: no strong commitment and not seeking one

    • Foreclosed: strong commitments but adopted from one’s parents or others blindly

      Identity Crisis: Unstable state—moratorium: One has no commitments but is seeking to make them.


Resolution from moratorium

Resolution from Moratorium

  • Two paths:

    • Identity-achieved (positive, relatively stable state): you commit.

    • Identity-diffused (negative, complex): you fail to commit.


Revisiting the definition

Revisiting the Definition

  • Possible components

    • Agency

    • Rationality

    • Singularity

    • Continuity

    • Ad hoc self-theorists
