After reading Erik Erikson's 8 life stage virtues (pretty interesting, heres a link(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erik_Erikson#Erikson.27s_theory_of_personality ) I've been thinking alot about life. It really scares me, because I realized that the stages are pretty accurate, in the content and in the order in which they've happened.

Right now, being a teenager, im on stage 5 (Identity Vs Role Confusion). I honestly don't know how to define myself, probably because I refuse to stereotype myself. Maybe I refuse to stereotype myself because each sterotype has some kind of negative connotation with it, and in accepting my stereotype, than that would be accepting a negative tribute. But in not accepting a stereotype, am I, for lack of better term, failing this stage?

Also, I don't really want to go through the older stages (Mid-life Crisis, acceptance of death). As stupid as that sounds, I just dont really want to deal with it...

Sadly, the Pit is the most helpful forum I know of on the internet (granted I don't go to alot of forums...), so please don't flame.


What are your opinions on Erik Erikson?

It doesn't surprise me that Erik is Danish. I know nothing of this man, but after quickly reading that link, I think this might interest you.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
