As a student of Erikson , you realize that your search for independence is a challenge of A..mistrust versus trust
B..autonomy vs shame and doubt
C...initiative VS guilt
D...industry vs inferiority

Independence starts in infants (witness tantrums), and at each stage develops for differing psychological reasons.
See stage 5 (Erickson).

And, I need to add, Erickson grossly simplified the issues, to make development in children "cookbook". I am not of the opinion that is as simple as he suggested, however, I am in the minority on this.
