PSY 301 Adult Development & Life Assessment

posted by on .

I'm not sure where and how to begin to answer this question. I read the chapter but I'm still not coming up with how to answer it. I just need some help.

When you look at the idea of life stages, can we place ourselves in any self determined or appointed life stages? Are some of these self determined stages more significant than others?

    Do any of these explanations describe your life now? How? Do you know of others who fit specific life stages?

    Sorry about that but no that is not what was in the chapter. The textbook that we are using is Journey of Adulthood by Bjorklund. There was nothing in the text that said it was based on Erikson's life stages.
