Generativity Vs Stagnation Stage Interview Discussion
Interview someone in your life who would be in any of Erikson’s last four stages of psychosocial development: identity vs role confusion, intimacy vs isolation, generativity vs stagnation, integrity vs despair.
First, write a brief paragraph explaining why you chose the interviewee you did and what signals to you that they are in the Eriksonian stage you believe they are in (5 points). Then, design at least 3 questions that will help you assess how your interviewee is handling the major psychosocial crisis they are experiencing (6 points). Record their responses to your questions (6 points).
