The four identities where nice to read about but were a little confusing but this is what I had come up with:
1. Achieved Identity: This identity is when a person has experienced a certain crisis and has committed and accepted the crisis that they are in. It is also states that the person is happy within the context of the situation. The crisis that is being experienced is not a situation that the particular individual can't handle, it is something that is enjoyable to them. They have found what makes them tick.
2. Foreclosed Identity: This identity is when an individual’s identity is chosen for them and cannot be developed on their own. This is situation where the individual is pressured or forced to do when they have not had experience in the situation or experience in the crisis before. For example, my friend’s father owns a car dealership and my friend is pressured into taking over the business even though he has no experience in the situation until he is put there in the position to own it.
3. Moratorium: Moratorium stage is when a person’s identity has experienced a particular context within a crisis but has no commitment to it. In this stage the person faces aspects of life such as belief systems, relationships, etc. but they are hesitant to commit to it.
4. Diffuse Identity: in this stage of identity a person is hesitant from experiencing any crisis or commitment, this person often has a hard time with dealing with many situations and usually becomes very anxious and has trouble with change. The individual has a hard time experiencing new crises or even committing to them. This individual is always trying to change and trying to fit the immediate context or situation that they are in, instead of exploring and figuring out the identity they need to be in or that they should be in.Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to transfer my context mapping from a word document to this page so I had printed it out to bring to class.
