Transcript of Erik Erikson's Stages of Development Project

Erik Erikson's Stages of Development Project
1996
1998
1994
According to Erikson's theory of childhood influences on personality, this stage is "needed to develop a basic sense of trust in your environment and in those who cared for you." At this stage, I was in the hands of my mother and my babysitter, who I stayed with for a comfortable time period. This stage I had warm parenting and caring adults around me consistently, in this case, had some impact to my psychological development. During this time in my life, my mother and I were moving around from Mexico to Klamath Falls, so I stuck mostly to my mom, but still stayed close with other family members.
Trust vs. Mistrust
Autonomy vs. Self-doubt
By: Mireya Van Buren
Initiative vs. Guilt
This particular stage is the most noticeable in my personality to this day, I do have self-doubt, which could have stemmed from this stage. Erikson believes that " Too much restriction or criticism at this stage may have led to self-doubts...Harsh demands made on you beyond your ability," such as potty training, "could have discouraged your efforts to persevere in mastering new tasks." There is no special story that I know of that would have been significant to this stage, but knowing how my mother would be protective and dictate what I could and could not play with, may have influenced me.
This stage I most likely did not succeed well enough to transfer to the next stage. Erikson gives the example of children dressing themselves and over-controlling adults. Not trying to put make my mother's parenting seem the worst, but still to this day she is over-controlling. But since this started in this early stage, discouraged my freedom and self-confidence. One example is that for any important family function, I could never dress myself, I always had to wear what my mother dressed me in and she always did my hair, even if it was a painful hairdo. And since my mom always put what others thought first, to this day, mine and her appearance is strictly dictated on who we are visiting for that particular day.
Compared to the previous stages, this one I can remember more. I am most like a discouraged spectator, according to Erikson, rather than the performer. "They experience failure that leaves them with the a sense of inferiority," which is most common during this age,which I mainly remember. I would try to participate, for instance a kick ball game, but to my dismay, I always felt inferior because of the "captains" choosing me close to last, or even last at some times. Embarrassing moments also deepened the lack of self-confidence.
Competence vs. Inferiority
2001
2007
I believe that I have found my morals and know who I am as a person. Thus, Erikson's adequate resolution description, "Comfortable sense of self as a person, both unique and socially accepted," fits me. The examination from a professional psychologist may say differently, but if I were to judge myself now, I believe my adolescent years have been healthy, in a psychoanalytical view. Know who my real friends are and know what I do not want in a relationship, seems to me, a healthy step for early adulthood.
Identity vs. Role Confusion
At this stage, I have not yet become a young adult, but am very close, and the important factors are lovers, friends, and work connections. These influences determine intimate relationships, work and social lives. The negative outcomes are promiscuity and exclusivity.
Intimacy vs. Isolation
Once the last stage is complete, this stage is focused on children and community. Contributing to something shows that during this age category, care and production of children is healthy. But if things go wrong, rejectivity is prone to happen.
Generativity vs. Stagnation
Integrity vs. Despair
The final stage is obviously the late adult stage. At the end, we all try to explain our lives, relating it to the world and society. The meaning of our lives and purpose we served according to our life achievements. We spread our wisdom to our relatives which somehow gratifies the end of our lives, hopefully with little regrets.
I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
Just praying to a God that I don't believe in
'Cause I got time while she got freedom
'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even

Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man that's gonna put her first
While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping
'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven... even... no

What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you,
And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're ok
I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
I'm falling to pieces

They say bad things happen for a reason
But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding
'Cause she's moved on while I'm still grieving
And when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven even... no

What am I gonna to do when the best part of me was always you,
And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're ok
I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
I'm falling to pieces
One still in love while the other one's leaving
I'm falling to pieces
('Cause when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)
Oh you got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
You took your suitcase, I took the blame.
Now I'm try'na make sense of what little remains ooh
'Cause you left me with no love and no love to my name.

I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
Just prayed to a God that I don't believe in
'Cause I got time while she got freedom
'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break
No it don't break
No it don't break even no

What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you and
What am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're ok
(Oh glad your okay now)
I'm falling to pieces yeah
(Oh I'm glad your okay)
I'm falling to pieces yeah
(One still in love while the other ones leaving)
I'm falling to pieces
('Cause when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

Oh it don't break even no
Oh it don't break even no
Oh it don't break even no
Breakeven - The Script
As in every adoloscent, emotions are 10x worse, mainly because of not knowing that life still goes on. To me, The Script captured the ending of my first serious relationship.
"I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing," This is how it really felt to me when the realization occured.
"While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping," I couldn't fall asleep normally for over a week, always had to have something to make me passout. And the lyric explaining the heartache followed by knowing she is
OK, still occurs to me to this day, and I don't think the feeling will ever end until I find a new happiness.
They even explain how your friends try to console you, saying you could do better and there is other people out there and giving advice, which never seems to help, in any sort of way, until later on.
"One still in love while the other one's leaving, I'm falling
to pieces," no relationship ends on equal terms if one was more inlove then the other, and in their song, they portrayed heartache that I could fully understand. This song explained perfectly of my turmoil this past months and how much I loved being with that person in the most memorable year of my life so far.
Song Analysis
Erik Erikson’s theory on child development relating to me has its accuracies. Even though his spectators found flaws in the results, such as some women do not fit in some of his theories. But I saw many of his examples applying to me, except in the Autonomy v. Self-doubt theory. When I was in this stage, I did not try to go above the expectations of that age. And my mother said I was always a quite baby, so my temperament seemed to mean something in a way that I did not want to pose a bother. But I do know that my personality also stems from my family interactions, without them, I would not have been loud and obnoxious at times.
