Intimacy vs. Isolation
By: Clara, Sahiti, Sri
Move away from peer group
Associate with others who have similar ambitions and interests, regardless of age
Create family of their own
Adapt to non-traditional roles
Major Question: Will I be loved or will I be alone?
In this stage, the most important events are love relationships. According to Erikson, no matter how successful you are with your work, you are not developmentally complete until you are capable of intimacy. An individual who has not developed a sense of identity usually will fear a committed relationship and may retreat into isolation.
