James Marcia’s Four Identity States

Diffusion - The state of having no clear idea of one's identity and making no attempt to find that identity. These adolescents may have struggled to find their identity, but they never resolved it, and they seem to have stopped trying. There is no commitment and no searching.

Identity Foreclosure- The state of blindly accepting the identity and values that were given in childhood by families and significant others.

The adolescent's identity is foreclosed until they determine for themselves their true identity. The adolescent in this state is committed to an identity but not as a result of their own searching or crisis.

Identity Moratorium – The state of having acquired vague or ill-formed ideological and occupational commitments. The adolescent is still undergoing the identity search (crisis). They are beginning to commit to an identity but are still developing it.

Identity Achievement - The state of having developed well-defined personal values and self-concepts. The adolescent’s identity may be expanded and further defined in adulthood, but the basics are there. They are committed to an ideology and have a strong sense of ego identity.
Two Phases:
Identity Description
- Fall P.E.R.M. Party
- "Multicultural Self"
- Marcia's Stages (PL100)
Identity Development
- Spring P.E.R.M. Party
- Cross' Model (PL300)
- Mentorship Circles
Of ~2200 Black West Point grads, 286 are women...one is the highest ranking in the Army.

Identity transformation is a major part of military life.

USMA does not have a training program for awareness on issues/uniqueness of the African-American Woman.
