Waterman, Alan S.
Developmental Review, v19 n4 p591-621 Dec 1999
Maintains that van Hoof misrepresents views of theorists and researchers working with identity status constructs. Examines the paradigm's theoretical underpinnings and the construct validity of ego identity. Provides empirical evidence for six propositions within the theory of identity status development. Examines literature reviewed by van Hoof for research design elements. Concludes that substantial support for developmental hypotheses is available. (Author/KB)
