Erikson Stage Resolution: The Relationship Between Identity and Intimacy.
Kacerguis, Mary Ann; Adams, Gerald R.
The relationship between ego and intimacy statuses was identified for 88 college students, 44 men and 44 women, and subsequently related to each other and to measures of intimacy, loving and liking. Results indicated that: (1) more advanced stages of identity development were associated with higher levels of intimacy formation; and (2) for both males and females, occupational identity development was the primary predictive factor in the identity/intimacy stage resolution relationship.
