Cote, James E.; Levine, Charles G.
Youth and Society, v20 n4 p388-415 Jun 1989
This study explores interrelationships among the following components of Erik Erikson's theory of ego identity formation: (1) the identity crisis; (2) the institutionalized moratoria; (3) the ego-superego struggle for dominance of the personality; and (4) the value orientation stages. Humanistically oriented adolescents are more likely to have a severe identity crisis than are the technologically oriented. (AF)
