Description

In a human lifespan, identity formation is crucial in the adolescence developmental period. However, researchers are noticing how identity development has now extended to the early adulthood stage. In this researched scholarly essay, the theories of identity development are discussed and challenged by the cultural shift of the new generation of twentysomethings. Researchers note that “emerging adulthood” is a new identity developmental period characterized by three important areas: love, work, and worldviews. Additionally, the experiences of emerging adulthood are compared with the lifestyles of twentysomethings across generations. Overall, emerging adulthood, a growing psychological trend, is an important component of identity development that young adults can learn how to navigate.
